Firenza Pizza, an innovative restaurant brand touting “Pizza Like Never Before,” has opened its newest restaurant in San Jose, California. 

Located at 1510 Monterey Rd. Suite 20, the new restaurant specializes in hand-crafted, made-to-order pizza is celebrating its grand opening November 27-December 1. In honor of the grand opening, Firenza Pizza of San Jose will offer $5 signature or up-to-4-topping pizzas when liking Firenza on Facebook. $1 from each pizza will go towards Sunday Friends. 

In addition, each day 5 guests will win free pizza for a year—two free 10-inch pizzas per month for 12 months. 

The location will be owned and operated by Ling Hullon, Andrew Hullon and Jenny Yie. 

Firenza specializes in truly hand crafted and made-to-order pizzas that can be customized with nearly 40 fresh toppings including house roasted garlic, creamy mozzarella ovalini and your favorite meats. For those customers who don’t want to create their pizzas from scratch, Firenza also offers ten chef-inspired signature pies ranging from the Primavera Fresca loaded with healthy vegetables, the Big Kahuna featuring smoked ham, bacon and tropical pineapple or the award-winning Chipotle Chicken topped with crema and fresh pico de gallo. Once the pizzas are assembled, they’re baked in an open flame stone-hearth oven and guaranteed to be done within five minutes. 

While convenience and price are important selling points, the priority for Firenza is phenomenal pizza. “Unlike most other fast casual pizza chains where the crusts are premade and machine-pressed, our pizza dough is made in house and hand-stretched to order right in front of the guest,” says Ling Hullon.

In addition to pizza, the restaurant offers diners customizable salads, oven baked wings, homestyle meatballs, breadsticks, local craft beer, wine and more.

Restaurant hours are daily from 11:00 a.m.—10:00 p.m.

Today, there are 20 Firenza locations open and operating in 7 states, with 25 more in various stages of development.
