Pieology, a player in the "fast pizza" space where you can get a custom pizza in less than 5 minutes, will open in mid-November, reports Sonya Sorich in Sac Biz Journal.
Pieology Pizzeria plans to open its new restaurant in midtown Sacramento in mid-November, according to a company spokeswoman.
The restaurant, which specializes in personal pizzas, fills the spot previously occupied by Indian restaurant Monsoon at 1020 16th St. It will be the Sacramento region's first Pieology location.
Guests select pizza elements such as sauce -- available in flavors ranging from barbecue to pesto -- and toppings, including options such as meats, cheeses and vegetables. Pizzas cost less than $8.
