Reader Cris gave me the heads-up that pizza parlor Pieology of Goleta is getting close to opening so I stopped by the restaurant and confirmed the news. Hollister Village Plaza’s newest tenant is scheduled top open Saturday, August 27th at 7000 Hollister Avenue in Goleta. This franchised location is run by Cotti Foods that operates locations in Hawaii and around California. “The brand is about inspiration and customization where a guest can come in and tell us exactly how they want their pizza,” says Shane Gray, VP of Marketing for Cotti Foods. “You want more mushrooms? No problem. Even more mushrooms? No problem! Making it the way you want it is what makes it special.”
Pieology, which has more than 100 locations across the U.S., offers more than 30 different topping choices at a fixed price which results in hundreds of pizza combinations that can be custom-made for each customer. Menu options include sauces such as herb butter, red sauce or olive oil as well as a variety of cheese choices including mozzarella, parmesan or gorgonzola. Toppings include a range for meats such as chicken, sausage or meatball to a variety of vegetables or unique items like jalapeno or pineapple. Pieology also offers “after bakes” that can be added after the pizza such as roasted red peppers, dollops of red sauce or pesto. Gluten-free crust is also available.
Pieology joins Smart & Final Extra!, Zizzo’s at the plaza and future tenants include Dickey’s BBQ, Pickles & Swiss, Poke Me and Kyle’s Kitchen.
Hours are 11 a.m.- 9:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday. Visit pieology.com
