Pie on the Flyy has been slicing up pizza in the City of Carson since 2019, only to expand across L.A. as one of the best Pizzerias in Los Angeles, California. Pie on the Flyy is looking to have a pop-up location at the Taste of Soul, one of the biggest one-day festivals in South L.A., on October 15.

The Los Angeles Sentinel had an exclusive interview with Wyntesha McAllister, Co-owner of Pie on the Flyy. Looking to represent the Black community in the Pizzeria industry, McAllister stated,

“To have the opportunity to contribute to our community as a Black-owned business means everything to us. It means representation, it means family, it shows unity and growth.”

We’re excited about engaging with other vendors and purchasing from them. I imagine it’s going to be like a huge family reunion.”
