Pieology Pizzeria announced that its newest Bakersfield, California, location is now open. This is the sixth location owned and operated by California-based Cotti Foods, which owns the exclusive franchise rights to open Pieology restaurants throughout Hawaii and Bakersfield.

“We’re excited to bring another Pieology location to the Bakersfield area to make it easier for residents to experience our restaurant,” says Cotti Foods’ president and CEO, Peter Capriotti II. “Our dedication to the guest experience along with our strategic, sustainable growth model are key factors in our success. Bakersfield continues to welcome Pieology with open arms and we can’t wait to serve this new part of our community for years to come.”

The Pieology experience starts with fresh house-made dough that is pressed into 11.5-inch thin pizza crusts, which is typically larger than others in the custom pizza space. Guests select from eight signature sauces, moving down the line to choose from more than 40 fresh and flavorful meats, cheeses, vegetables, herbs and spices. The customized pizzas are then stone oven fired to perfection in less than three minutes. To finish, guests have the option to add after-bake “Flavor Blast” sauces, including fiery buffalo, pesto and BBQ, to really make it their own! Pieology also offers gluten-free crust, whole wheat crust and a selection of seven signature pizzas, which can be customized upon request.

Pieology’s custom salads allow guests to create made-to-order salads by choosing from three fresh lettuce options of organic field greens, romaine hearts or spinach. Guests then select from any of Pieology’s large variety of toppings, including sunflower seeds, garbanzo beans and candied walnuts, along with a choice of five dressings made in-house. Pieology also offers a signature Classic and Caesar salad, which can be personalized with additional ingredients upon request. The salad and pizza are the perfect pairing for a shareable meal.

Pieology Bakersfield features an industrial-chic and friendly environment where inspirational quotes decorate the walls, menus and employee uniforms. The restaurant will be open Monday to Thursday 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday to Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
