Firenza Pizza, a burgeoning franchise touting “Pizza Like Never Before,” is set to open its newest restaurant in Tigard, Oregon.

Located at 12280 SW Scholls Ferry Road, the new restaurant specializes in hand-crafted, made-to-order pizza and will celebrate its grand opening March 27-31. Guests will receive a free two topping pizza when they make a $2 donation to HomePlate Youth Services or Good Neighbor Center.

In order to receive this offer, each customer must print and bring the donation flyer that corresponds with their preferred charity. The charity flyers may be found on the Firenza website.

In addition, the first 10 people in line on Friday, March 30, 2018 and Saturday, March 31, 2018 will get free pizza for a year.

“I am thrilled to bring Firenza Pizza to Tigard,” says Brian Lew, who will own and operate the new restaurant. “The Firenza business model has proven strong and is seeing rapid expansion throughout the country. As an avid cook and food lover, I am confident that the local community will fall in love with Firenza’s level of customization and quality products. We look forward to becoming the go-to place for fast-casual pizza in Tigard.”

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.

The cost of a 10-inch simple cheese pizza is $5.99. Signature 10-inch pizzas start at $8.49. 14-inch pizzas are also available starting at $16.49.

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,” Lew 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 a.m. to 10 p.m.
