Pieology Pizzeria makes Sacramento debut on Wednesday

Pieology Pizzeria, a Rancho Santa Margarita-based chain, will open its first local restaurant Wednesday in downtown Sacramento.

The restaurant, at 1020 16th St., features personalized pizza pies that can be customized with 30 ingredients. Most of the “artisan-style” pizzas, which are 11.5 inches in diameter, are priced at less than $8. Pizzas are cooked in less than five minutes in an open-flame, hearth stone, 800-degree oven.

Takeout also is available. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays.

Pieology has more than 30 franchised or corporately owned restaurants in eight states, with most locations in California. The chain plans to open more Northern California sites in the near future. For more information, see
