When you need something different I suggest the new 
Pieology Pizzeria on South Lake, where pizza lovers go 
to create custom pizzas in endless flavor combinations. 
With no signs of slowing down, Pieology is set to 
open a total of 110 restaurants by the end of the year 
with commitments for 500. Remaining steadfast to 
the company’s approach of fostering strategic and 
sustained growth, Pieology has proved to be a leader 
in the booming custom pizza category, reporting 
the highest average unit volume per store versus its 

 I spoke to the President Bob Baker about the 
concept “We are thrilled to bring the unique Pieology 
experience to new guests across the country,” “While 
many competitors are focused on rapid expansion, 
Pieology is carefully selecting experienced franchise 
partners who embrace the company’s vision, are 
committed to the communities they serve and have a 
proven track record of franchise success.”

 The Pieology experience starts with fresh house-
made dough that is pressed into 11.5-inch thin pizza 
crusts. Guests first select from seven base signature 
sauces, moving down the line to choose from nearly 
30 fresh and flavorful meats, cheeses, vegetables, 
herbs, and spices. The custom pizzas are then stone 
oven fired to perfection in under three minutes. To 
finish, guests have the option to add after-bake “Flavor 
Blast” sauces, including fiery buffalo, pesto and BBQ, 
to create their own unique masterpiece. Each custom 
pizza with unlimited toppings is always $8.00 or less. 
Pieology also offers gluten-free crust and a selection of 
seven signature pizzas, which can be customized upon 

 The eight Southern California Pieology locations to 
open by April are: Culver City, Westlake Village, Korea 
Town, La Mirada, Whittier, Carlsbad, Cerritos and 
Monrovia. All locations will feature an industrial-chic 
and friendly environment where inspirational quotes 
decorate the walls, menus and employee uniforms. I 
checked out the new store on South Lake and loved 
it, I think you will too! We got our pizza in less than 
5 minutes. For the complete list of pizzas go to www.

 Pieology’s Bottom Line: The staff is very friendly and 
you are greeted enthusiastically by all of them (and I 
mean ALL of unison) upon entering the 
store. It is fun...and I liked the high energy of the staff!
