Pizzaheads, go ahead and fire up your cheeseholes. The Pive Five Pizza Co. opens Friday at 534 Westport Road (the former El Rancho Mexican Restaurant space) in Westport. For those not familiar with the rapidly growing franchise out of Fort Worth, Texas, it’s easiest to think of this as a pizza shop operating on the Chipotle/sub model.
All of the pizzas are nine inches and cook in five minutes. You pick among seven sauces (alfredo to spicy Sriracha marinara), 28 toppings and one of four crusts (gluten-free is an option for an additional charge). They also serve salads (in or outside pizza crust bowls), cookie pies and brownies.
It’s the second Pie Five in the area. The first opened in Overland Park (13366 Metcalf) in August 2013. The Kansas City Pie Five location will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The phone number is 816-895-3298.[Image via Facebook: Pie Five]
