Los Angeles – In a tribute to Joan Jett, a pair of can’t-miss colorful murals by artist Tait Roelofs now adorn the bright blue walls of PIZZANISTA! in the downtown Arts District. Jettheads can snap a pic in front of the epic artwork before heading inside the pizzeria to enjoy the limited-edition Joan Jett x PETA pie: a black heart-shaped crust (in honor of the Blackhearts and Jett’s big heart for animals) piled high with veggies and melty vegan cheese from Miyoko’s Creamery, served in a heart-shaped box—just in time for Valentine’s Day.

“Joan Jett has said that if there’s anything she loves more than rock ’n’ roll, it’s animals, so this set of can’t-miss murals advertising vegan pizza is a fantastic tribute,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “PETA can’t wait to see snaps of Tait Roelofs’ eye-catching artwork popping up on social media as fans flock to PIZZANISTA! for a slice of its heart-shaped pie.”

PIZZANISTA! and its Joan Jett–inspired murals are located at 2019 E. Seventh St., near Mateo Street. The pizza will be available for four months, starting January 22, at a 20% discount to PETA members—and will fill the heart as well as the stomach, since $2 from each purchase will go to support PETA’s lifesaving work for animals.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
