An entrepreneur named Jack Bertram and his wife, Pat, opened the first Stuft Pizza in Cerritos, California, in 1976. Before opening the store Jack experimented for close to 9 months, developing the recipe for the delicious pizza we have today. Although the small store did only pizza and was take-out only, its emphasis on the highest quality product led to its success. Jack and Pat opened their second store two years later in Whittier. The original over-the-counter concept kept growing, and in 1986, Stuft Pizza became a franchise.
Unlike the previous stores, which can be found throughout California and Oregon, Stuft Pizza Bar & Grill in La Quinta is unique. We have an expanded menu, full bar, full service, HD tv's for our sports fans and an amazing wine list. The idea was to take the original "pizzeria" and put a fun spin on it. What brought people to Stuft Pizza more than 35 years ago is still what brings them through our doors today, delicious pizza, a friendly atmosphere, and great value.
To this day we are proud to still operate as a family-run business. Thank you for continuing to support us throughout the years, and thank you for being part of the Stuft Pizza family!
