Strawberry Cones pizza (San Gabriel Valley)

Strawberry Cones in Los Angeles

Japan's lesser-known pizza chain Strawberry Cones just opened a couple weeks ago in a San Gabriel Valley strip mall and I'm super excited. Unlike most things Japanese chefs make, pizza is less artisanal than it is kitchy and artificial, yet devoid of rules. Anything goes: corn, asparagus, mayonnaise, white sauce, teriyaki chicken - you name it, they bake it.

Though still in their soft-opening, Strawberry Cones' menu is fairly slim. I started off with the teriyaki mochi chicken pizza ((S) $11) and finished with California walnut and raisin pizza ((S) $9.80) for dessert:

Speaking of weird, they sell a line of 'Ninja pizzas' with a gray-darkened crust made from bamboo charcoal (chikutan). It tastes great and stays out of your lungs. The other key ingredient in their pizza is rice flour, aka, mochi-ko, making for a chewier, sweeter crust.

On my next visit, I'm trying the Mochi Mentai Ninja, Avocado & Salmon, and Meat Paradise.

Weird indeed but sounds so delicious! I think I would totally love the teriyaki mochi chicken pizza. Just the name of the ingredients sounds fantastic. Need to visit someday to this place, even if it is a bit pricey compared to usual delivery pizza...

Nice to see a new post from you! I'll endeavor to check out this place.

I took a pix of the Ninja pizza last weekend and laughed to myself. Or rather, LOL'd. The boxes look straight up Domino copies, and there are ZERO customers. 6 months tops I give it.

I totally thought it was a Chinese pizza joint when I saw the coming soon sign.

I wanna try! Odd combination pizzas with bamboo charcoal crust and sweet rice flour?
