Pie Five Pizza to Open 2 Stores in Southfield, More Planned Across Michigan


Pie Five Pizza, a fast casual pizza restaurant, will open in Southfield at the end of the month and will add a location in Southfield’s City Centre in June, with 55 more stores planned in Michigan and Wisconsin.

“We can’t wait to show guests that artisanal, quality pizza can be served fast —145 seconds to be exact,” says John Draper II, who along with his father, J.D. Draper, are the franchise owners. 

Pie Five Pizza’s model allows customers to choose from four crusts (crispy artisan thin, classic pan, Neapolitan whole grain thin, gluten free), seven sauces, and 28 toppings. The restaurant’s signature creations include barbecue chicken, margherita, and buffalo chicken, among other options. The pizzas, which cost about $7, are cooked for about two-and-a-half minutes. Additional options include freshly made salads, brownies, and cookie pies.

Other pizza selections include Five Star (Tuscan marinara, cheddar, pork sausage, pepperoni, beef, green olives, red and green peppers, black olives, and red onions); Chicken Carbonara (alfredo sauce, parmesan, grilled chicken, mushrooms, crushed red pepper, and bacon); and Farmer’s Market (Tuscan marinara, mushrooms, spinach, red and green peppers, red onions, and roasted tomatoes.

The Southfield location will open May 29 at the northwest corner of 12 Mile Road and Telegraph Road, and will be the 48th location for the Dallas-based brand. Pie Five operates in 13 states.
