Caroline D’Amore is the daughter of legendary Pizza restaurateur Joe D’Amore, known in Los Angeles for their delicious, authentic Italian fare, originating with D’Amore’s Pizza locations on the Westside in Malibu and Westwood. Her father opened their first location when Caroline was just 3 years old, in Canoga Park, reinventing her grandmother’s recipes, and using authentic ingredients such as flour, olive oil and even their water, flown in from Naples, Italy, to not sacrifice the quality of their menu items.
“I remember having to do my homework at the pizza shops growing up because my father was hustling to make a great product and business while raising four girls by himself. I never really minded because it was fun for me to get in the kitchen and try my hand at pounding out dough balls. Pizza is my whole life, every birthday party was a pizza party and I quickly became known as the pizza kid, hence my current title as ‘Pizza Girl.’ My dad even made shirts for us that said Pizza Kids when we would tag along for major movie and tv show catering gigs. There’s awesomely embarrassing photos of me with Jason Priestley while catering the 90210 set.“
In recent years, Caroline has established her own D’Amore’s Pizza location on West 3rd Street in Los Angeles along with starting the D’Amores catering company and launching their food truck. They recently catered the entire press box for the LA Rams, catered on set at Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Rogen’s Hilarity for Charity Fundraiser at the Hollywood Palladium, a private Honest brand party for Jessica Alba, and the list goes on.
Pizza Girl is already a hit in Los Angeles and is available at all Bristol Farms Locations, Erewhon Natural Foods, Vintage Grocers, and Follow Your Heart Market. D’Amore’s is a hotspot pizza joint frequented by the likes of Paris Jackson, Paris Hilton, Jimmy Kimmel, Jessica Alba, Shay Mitchell, Chloe Grace Moretz, Taylor Lautner, Kevin Connolly, and the list goes on and on. They are open until 4:am nightly which gives them a unique edge in West Hollywood when most late-night food closes much earlier.
“I know that the quality and consistency of our sauce is number one but these days style and design are almost equally important.” Caroline also quickly learned that running her own business mean that she must know every aspect of the company.
When Caroline is not stirring sauce, she can be seen on the turntables around the globe, whether she is opening for Diplo or spinning at a fashion event, her excitement for life extends into all of her endeavors. Her signature pizza slice jewel encrusted headphones keep her Pizza Girl persona with her at all times.
