When you think of pizza you imagine cheese, mushrooms and pepperoni on a flaky thin or thick crust. Well it's time to let your imagination run wild and imagine cheese, pastrami, mustard and pickles on that same flaky delicious crust. This pizza is definitely worth a try and if you like a great pastrami sandwich you are going to thoroughly... More

The thought of a pastrami pizza didn't sound all that great until I had it at Downey Pizza Co. It's an explosion of flavor in my mouth. The pastrami is cooked very well, almost crunchy on the edges. Basically the only thing I eat there along with a salad. For those who enjoy pastrami I highly recommend it.

Located in the heart of Downey, California, The Downey Pizza Company is a local hangout. Lots of televisions, a full bar, and lots of seating, locals will tell you this is the best pizza in town... and its true! I ordered the fried green beans with ranch dressing dip, a Caesars salad and the infamous pastrami pizza. This thing is... More

Who knew mustard replacing pizza sauce. Simply Delicious. Can't just eat one slice. Cool spot in Downey. Around for a while. Nothing fancy. You can even see them prepare the pizzas. A bit loud when you have sports teams celebrations there. Who cares pastrami pizza is great.

We had the best pastrami pizza ever! The crust is crunchy on the bottom and thinner. The edges are fluffy and cooked to perfection. BUT... The toppings are the star! The pastrami pizza has mustard, pickles, and pastrami. It was delicious. I have never had this on a pizza before. I have been missing out!! This place is in a... More

One of our favorite pizza joints, they are known for their pastrami pizzas which are fantastic but their BBQ chicken is one of our family favorites. Can get crowded on weekends as its a fav for the little league teams.

So my sister is a local and suggested this place. We ordered a pastrami pizza and was told that it would be 45 minutes. After 1.5 hours, I called, and the person on the phone stated that the driver has the food and left. 45 minutes later, called back and still no pizza. Cancelled order and was offered a 20%... More
