‘Extreme Pizza’ Coming to Pentagon City

A new, fast-growing pizza chain is coming to Arlington’s Pentagon City neighborhood.

Extreme Pizza — which offers unique pizzas with non-traditional ingredients like mandarin oranges, hummus, walnuts and broccoli — is coming to 1419 S. Fern Street, across from Costco and near the recently-opened Epic Smokehouse.

This will be the first Extreme Pizza location inside the Beltway and the fourth in Virginia. The existing Virginia locations are in Vienna, Henrico and Richmond. Those restaurants all feature indoor and outdoor seating, take-out and delivery service and online ordering.

The company says it distinguishes itself through a “dedication to quality” and a “commitment to innovation.”

“At Extreme Pizza, we’re always experimenting with new ways to test the palette, to push the pizza experience to a higher level,” says the company’s “Philosophy” web page. “This is the sort of pizza invented by people who sail from kites, who snowboarded before there were snowboards, and who learned to always color outside the lines.”

In addition to pizza, the Extreme Pizza in Pentagon City is also expected to offer calzones, salads, subs, wings, and gluten-free options, plus beer and wine. No word yet on when the eatery is hoping to open.

    Call me a traditionalist if you must, but this does not sound good for pizza toppings… I’m open to trying new things, though. Anyone ever try it elsewhere?

    • YTK

      I dunno — I think maybe in the early days of Pizza, these toppings were de-rigeur.

      Why settle for just tomatoes and cheese and sausage oh my?

      Ledo Pizza used to offer a Baltimore Oriole Pizza — Black olives, oranges and Chicken. D**n good!!!

  • YTK

    Will…. there….be..Cannoli ????????

    • nom de guerre

      Yes-Richard Cranium will be providing the special filling.

      • YTK

        Oh. Did they fire Abby Normal?

      • Richard Cranium

        Man, if they get busy I’m gonna have to stock up on ‘glide.

    Maybe hummus and oranges is “extreme” in Richmond, but in NOVA it better come with a handy.

    • Hank

      I guess I’m lazy because I order delivery, but I usually just ask the Pizza Bolis deliveryman for a handy. The benefit is his hands are usually already greasy.

  • Hank

    I can’t wait to pound a Mountain Dew, load some Linkin Park onto my iPod, and haul some serious ass on my BMX over to Pentagon City and get some Extreme m f’ing Pizza!

    • X-man

      Don’t forget to get a can of ‘Splode for the ride home.

  • Swag

    Shouldn’t that be X-TREME! ?

  • FrenchyB

    But will they have pizza shooters, shrimp poppers, or extreme fajitas?

    • WD


    • Peter

      No, but they’ll have jalapeno zappers, nacho slammers and bacon bangers.

  • Arlington Cat

    Hey, Brah, slide me a proper slice before you start pouring the garlic, will ya?

  • MissKittenCat

    isn’t the California Pizza Kitchen still open in Pentagon City next door from the Costco?

    • WeiQiang

      … and there’s a Nekkid Pizza in Pent Row.

  • B22201

    Because Pentagon City warrants places called “Extreme”, and “Epic”.

    It would be like saying you had an epic day of skiing at Ski Liberty, or Whitetail.

    • X-man

      Dude! I hope they put in a bungee jump so you can get your adrenaline up while you’re waiting for your ‘za. Or at least a half-pipe.

  • dang!

    speaking of new pizza places – has anyone tried the ‘Naked Pizza’ yet ?
    there is one on Quincy in Ballston..just curious izall

    • James Moron

      It’s good for you and kind of tastes that way, Sort of like “wow, that pizza is good for a Lean Cuisine.”

      It’s passable but you’re not going to confuse it for the Italian Store.

  • kung_fubar

    Can I get one topped with broken glass, ghost peppers, and horseradish? That would be extreme brah….

  • JerryTheFaery

    Hope Poppy washes his hands first
