It's Your Imagination. We Just Feed It.


Before we created more than 78 billion pizza possibilities, our story began in the kitchen, with our founder, his wife and daughters, and a plan to share time together. From that day on, Pieology would forever be a fresh retreat from the everyday hustle and bustle. Where the only thing more important than quality food is quality people to share it with. We believe pizza brings out the best in us, which is why we’re setting it free. After all, you can’t slap limits on creativity or inspiration and still expect to change the world. You have to give people the freedom to choose.

We didn’t set out to create just another make-your-own pizza place. We’re here to feed our community, nourish creativity and bring people together. It’s a bigger vision. One filled with love and purpose. For Pizza. People. Passion. Your Pieology might feel warm and familiar inside, but when it comes to taste, it’s like visiting the first time, every time.

Pie-lanthropy

Sharing is caring. We’d like to help you raise funds for your cause! Our dedication to community, family and friends is at the heart of the Pieology family. We invite you to gather around our table, be inspired and make a positive difference, one pie at a time. Reach out and schedule your event today:
