Adventure: Pie-ology

After a long summer day at the sunny beaches of Southern California, my friends and I wanted to relax and try out a new pizzeria joint called Pie-Ology. Very similar to the famous Chipotle Mexican Grill, you have the ability to customize your pizza to your liking. From artichokes to jalapenos, you can put anything you’re heart desires on your personal pizza-pie! Check out the crazy combinations we ended up throwing on our pizza!
