Firenza Pizza, an restaurant brand touting “Pizza Like Never Before,” has opened its newest restaurant in Frisco, Texas. 

Located at 16100 State Highway 121, the new restaurant specializes in hand-crafted, made-to-order pizza and celebrated its grand opening November 13—November 17. The location is owned and operated by Jim and Lara Glazar. In honor of the grand opening, Firenza Pizza of Frisco offered $5 10-inch signature or up-to-4-topping pizzas when downloading the Firenza app. $2 from each pizza supported the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.

In addition, the first 10 people in line on Saturday, November 17, received free pizza for a year—two free 10-inch pizzas per month for 12 months.

“We wanted to fully participate in our local economy—we’ve seen so much growth in the area since moving to Frisco 12 years ago,” says Jim Glazar. “After traveling for work for years, I’m excited to work closer to home and be a part of the expanding community.”

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,” Glazar says.

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. Sunday to Thursday and 11:00 a.m.—11:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Today, there are 20 Firenza locations open and operating in 7 states, with 25 more in various stages of development.
