The Back Story
Who we are
Powered by positivity, punk rock, and a voracious love of pizza, Pizza Supreme Being is a pop-up pizzeria run by Ben Roberts in beautiful Sacramento, CA.
Using fresh, flavorful ingredients, locally harvested wood and a mobile wood-fired oven (which he calls Olive), Ben creates simple, satisfying pies, each one hand tossed and cooked before your eyes.
How all it started
Ben cut his culinary teeth at 19, learning, laughing and falling in love with the craft at a handful of respected Sacramento restaurants.
He spent his twenties mastering French cooking techniques, rubbing elbows with the smartest chefs in town, and eating new and exciting foods he'd never experienced before.
After 10 years in the industry, gaining confidence and creativity along the way, he was ready for his next challenge.
Ever-excited by the prospect of pizza—simple and nostalgic with an undercurrent of fun—Ben set out to to open his own pop-up pizza shop. And in 2015, Pizza Supreme Being was born.
What inspires us
At the heart of Ben’s work are nostalgia, simplicity and a desire to make people smile.
A long-time lover of punk music, Ben is inspired by the uncontainable energy of musical innovators like Fugazi and Black Flag.
As Ben puts it, “One of my favorite things about going to shows is waking up to my ears still ringing—that token of a fun night spent doing what you love. I like to think our pizza leaves that same ringing: a reminder that'll make you smile. Make you want to come back for more.”
His musical leanings show up in everything from his cooking style—fun, fast-paced and off the cuff—to the made-for-laughs Instagram he runs with his brother, featuring reimagined record covers and tweaked vintage photos.
In operation since August 2015, PSB has catered dozens of private parties, pop-ups and community events.
From company picnics and holiday parties to birthday celebrations and wedding receptions, we partner with businesses and individuals to create fun, memorable and delicious events.
We're committed to spreading positivity and sharing great pies—we’d love to help you with your next luncheon, special event or celebration. Join us soon to “Smile. Have Fun. Eat Pizza.”
