You have all been asking for pizza and soon, with your help, we are going to give you THE BEST PIZZA in town and MORE! This will be done in Pura Vita style, of course, which means all organic, plant based, made from scratch by our female owner and chef, Tara Punzone.
Chef Tara Punzone made the decision to make her childhood dream become a reality and opened Pura Vita, the first 100% plant-based Italian restaurant and wine bar in the USA!
Pura Vita in West Hollywood has been open for 9 months now and we cannot possibly express our gratitude for the unconditional love and support we have felt since day one. Chef Tara, her amazing partners and dedicated team have been working around the clock to make your experience exceptional during each and every visit.
Since the opening in September, we have grown close to our community and many of our regular guests and nearly all of you have been requesting pizza (and cannoli).
The problem is that our kitchen is too small to allow us to make these dishes available for you...BUT WE HAVE FOUND A SOLUTION!
Our neighbor, who is a fellow female owner and chef, is ready to retire and has made us an offer we can’t refuse! We will be taking over her space which is right next door! This is an incredible opportunity because it will allow us to create the perfect PIZZERIA, with a wood burning pizza oven, warm and fun environment and a kitchen fully equipped for THE BEST pizzas, antipasti and desserts (and yes CANNOLI too)!
We have 30 days to secure this location and our plan is to open this fall. We are personally giving everything that we have, but unfortunately that is not nearly enough. We need $125,000 in order to purchase all of the equipment and make the necessary renovations to the space. Our goal here is to raise $50,000. This will help get us started. If we are to exceed our goal, we will be eternally grateful for every dollar and for all of the love and support from everyone who helped make it possible.
Please help us reach our goal! In return you will also be helping the community, the environment, the animals and most importantly, your health and happiness!
