Pizza Fusion, a socially responsible restaurant chain, announced it will open a new restaurant in the Las Vegas area this spring. The new 1,800-square-foot Pizza Fusion will be located at 10345 South Eastern Avenue in Henderson, Nevada, in the Eastern Commons Shopping Center next to Trader Joe’s. Pizza Fusion offers dine-in, take out, delivery, and catering service options. The restaurant serves up a three-course menu for lunch and dinner, featuring an assortment of fresh salads, appetizers, artisan pizzas, sandwiches, and desserts. Pizza Fusion’s welcoming interior is characterized by trendy, eco-friendly design elements consistent with its do-good, eat-good mantra.

“Pizza Fusion’s high-quality menu, emphasis on a healthy lifestyle, and respect for the environment will provide Clark County residents with delicious, feel-good experience that’s truly special,” Blair Ford, owner of Pizza Fusion Henderson, says. “After searching for more than a year, I chose Pizza Fusion for its distinction within the food industry, including the highest quality product backed by best in class operations. I look forward to building the Pizza Fusion name within Clark County, serving many people over the coming years.”

Founded in 2007, Pizza Fusion has been quietly earning a name for itself with its hand-crafted approach to America’s feel good food. Its diverse pizza selection offers something for everyone, including Italian classics, modern culinary creations, and even vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free options for selective eaters.

Pizza Fusion’s menu is comprised of original recipes using the highest quality all natural and organic ingredients. In support of its local communities and the environment, Pizza Fusion locally sources its produce at all its locations, whenever possible. The restaurant maintains high standards for eco-friendly operations and procedures, building its locations according to LEED certification standards.

That’s why we make all our food with love, using our hands, hearts, and our ovens to craft delicious recipes from fresh, all-natural, and organic ingredients. The end result is a menu filled with unmatched flavor and freshness in every bite.”
