Work Culture at Benchmark Pizzeria

Family Owned
Our Story

Peter & Melissa Swanson opened Benchmark Pizzeria in July 2012 after many years in the industry. The couple met over a decade earlier while working at Oliveto Restaurant in Oakland. Melissa, new server and host, found herself entranced by Peter’s ability to cook a perfect piece of fish, and from there the duo’s fate was sealed, now culminating in their own spot. Peter, a self-taught chef, left Oliveto to help open Dopo in Oakland, where he created Dopo’s signature pizza dough recipe. Prior to opening Benchmark, Melissa worked as a server at Chez Panisse in Berkeley, and has spent years dabbling in all things food-related, from writing and restaurant criticism to founding Little Bug, an organic baby food company that served the Bay Area’s little ones.
