Firenza Pizza is set to open its newest restaurant in Sandusky, Ohio.

Located at 913 Crossing Road, the new restaurant specializes in hand-crafted, made-to-order pizza and will celebrate its grand opening May 29 – June 2. Guests will receive a 10-inch pizza signature pizza or topped with up to 4 toppings for $5.

In addition, the first 5 people in line at 11AM from May 29 – June 2 will get free pizza for a year. That is one free pizza per week for 52 weeks.

“We are so excited to bring Firenza Pizza to Sandusky,” says Carrie Osborne, who will own and operate the new restaurant with her husband Justin. “After sampling Firenza’s signature pies, we knew that we wanted to bring this incredible restaurant to our local community. The Firenza business model has proven strong and the brand is seeing rapid expansion throughout the country. We are confident that the local community will be blown away by Firenza’s quality products and level of customization. We look forward to becoming the go-to place for delicious pizza in Sandusky.”

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 created, they’re baked in an open flame stone-hearth oven and guaranteed to be done within five minutes.

The cost of a 10-inch simple cheese pizza is $5.99. Signature 10-inch pizzas start at $7.49. 14-inch pizzas are also available starting at $9.99.

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 daily and hand-stretched to order right in front of the guest,” Osborne says.

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

Restaurant hours are Sunday–Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 11p.m.
