Pieology Pizzeria is proud to announce that its very first Hawaii location is now open in Aina Haina. A proven favorite amongst pizza fans, Pieology Aina Haina is the first of 20 statewide locations operated by California-based Cotti Foods, which has secured the exclusive franchise rights to open Pieology restaurants throughout Hawaii and select areas of California.

“We’re excited to introduce the very first Pieology Hawaii location and its personalized dining experience to Hawaii residents and visitors alike,” says Cotti Foods’ president and CEO Peter Capriotti II. “With the custom pizza segment continuing to heat up, we definitely did our homework in determining which concept best met our needs. Pieology has a superior product and its development team whole-heartedly supports its franchisees, allowing us to tailor the menu with regional flavors and ingredients. Our first location is performing well above expectations, and it’s clear that we made a smart business decision in partnering with Pieology.”

Using only the freshest ingredients, award-winning Pieology prides itself on offering delicious, build-your-own, Artisan-style pizzas. Founded in 2011 by Carl Chang, the restaurant evolved out of the simple idea to turn America’s favorite food into an even more fun, affordable, interactive, and personalized experience. Pieology’s mission is to provide guests with a place to gather with their families and friends, enjoy great food, and be inspired to make a positive difference—one pie at a time.

The Pieology Hawaii locations will offer regional ingredients and a menu that has been developed exclusively for the state of Hawaii.

The dining experience starts with choosing your favorite crust—including a gluten-free option, then going down the line to select a sauce (House Red, 3-Cheese Alfredo, Herb Butter, Olive Oil, Fiery Buffalo, Pesto, and BBQ), choose from five different cheeses and seven meat toppings including local favorites such as Portuguese Sausage, Spam, and Kalua Pork, and, finally, stacking your toppings (Black Olives, Mushrooms, Red Onions, Green Peppers, Artichokes, Tomatoes, Garlic, Pineapple, Jalapenos, Corn, Kalamata Olives, Fresh Cilantro, Spinach, Banana Peppers, Fresh Basil, Roasted Red Peppers). The pizzas are cooked in an open-flame, hearthstone, 800-degree deck oven and ready to eat within 5 minutes and are then delivered to your table by our friendly servers or immediately boxed for takeout. Pieology serves salads, soft drinks, and Herb Butter or sweet Cinnamon Sugar Strips and Pieology Aina Haina serves beer and wine. 

Pieology’s custom salads allow guests to create made-to-order salads by choosing from three fresh lettuce options of romaine hearts. Spinach or organic field greens.  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. Pieology also offers a signature Classic and Caesar salad, which can be personalized with additional ingredients upon request. The generous portioned salad and pizza are the perfect pairing for a shareable meal.

Pieology Aina Haina features an industrial-chic and friendly environment where inspirational quotes decorate the walls, menus, and employee uniforms. The restaurant offers dine-in seating for up to 52 guests and is open Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
