Pieology strays from tradition and succeeds

During my stay at MUNUM, a Model UN conference at U of M, I found myself trying out many different restaurants. Lunch would consist of places where we could get our food quickly and go, but with no rush for dinner, sitting down and eating without a time constraint was very welcome. After a long day in committee, I quickly set off with a group of friends on the way to Pieology.

Pieology takes the approach of letting you pick everything you want on your pizza; it’s a Subway-esque format as you walk down the line choosing your toppings, and there are lots of different, diverse possibilities. Whether you want to go all out with a triple cheese pizza, a meat lover’s dream, or want to take the vegetable-laden healthy route, nearly any pizza you can imagine can be created at Pieology. Although I went to the Ann Arbor location, one can be found in Grand Rapids in Knapps Crossing.

Walking in, I was hit with the scent of cheese, meat, and pizza dough. The restaurant was filled with the chatter of college students and other MUN delegates, and the whole atmosphere was very lively. The relatively short line moved very quickly, and I found myself ordering in no time. I decided to try something new, so I started off with the triple cheese alfredo sauce instead of a more traditional pizza sauce. Next, I added parmesan cheese, followed with onions, mushrooms, peppers, and pepperoni.

The pizza cost me a meager eight dollars, a price I’m happy to pay for a reasonably sized dinner. I only had to wait a couple of minutes for my name to be called, and I picked up my pizza and settled back into my seat. The thin crust complimented the cheesy sauce very well, and the onions and peppers offered a welcome crunch. The pizza was perfectly sized for me, but if you’re not particularly hungry it’s far from a bad idea to split one with someone. I absolutely do not regret trying something a bit out of the ordinary, and I’m definitely coming back to Pieology if given the chance.

If you’re looking to try a new pizza that you may not be able to get anywhere else, Pieology is a fun new concept that everyone should check out. Instead of stopping in at Pizza Hut or Little Caesars for your pizza fix, I highly recommend giving Pieology a try.
