Pieology Pizzeria, where pizza lovers go to create custom pizzas in endless flavor combinations, is now open in La Mirada, California. This is the second franchised location opened by tennis professional and brother of Pieology founder, Michael Chang along with his wife, Amber. Their first restaurant opened in late 2014 in Irvine, California. Pieology La Mirada is located in the Crossroads Shopping Center at La Mirada and Imperial, just north of Biola University. A proven favorite with pizza fans, Pieology currently has 29 locations across Southern California, with plans to open six more by summer.
“My wife and I are proud to be members of the Pieology family during this very exciting time of growth and innovation, and we’re looking forward to bringing the customized dining experience to our new guests in La Mirada,” Chang says. “I’ve been a believer in my brother’s vision for Pieology since day one, and I’m thrilled to see that the concept is exceeding expectations in all areas, from sales to guest satisfaction. These first two locations are only the beginning of my franchise plans with Pieology.”
The Pieology experience starts with fresh, house-made dough that is pressed into 11.5-inch thin pizza crusts. Guests first select from eight signature sauces, moving down the line to choose from more than 30 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. Most custom pizzas with unlimited toppings are $8 or less. Pieology offers gluten-free crust, whole-wheat crust and a selection of seven signature pizzas, which can be modified upon request. The La Mirada location also offers Daiya vegan mozzarella cheese.
Pieology in La Mirada is one of the very first locations to offer the new custom salad platform which allows guests to personalize fresh, made-to-order salads by choosing from three fresh lettuce options, including 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. Pieology also offers a signature Classic and Caesar salad, which can be personalized with additional ingredients upon request. The large portioned salad and pizza are the perfect pairing for a shareable meal.
Pieology La Mirada comfortably seats approximately 36 guests inside and 28 guests outside, in an industrial-chic and friendly environment where inspirational quotes decorate the walls, menus, and employee uniforms.
