That ambition came to life one year ago when they opened Fire Stone Pizza Bar, a full-service pizza restaurant located at 11625 Broadway St., Pearland.
“One reason we picked this area is because we felt that it was underserved in terms of locally owned restaurants run by people who live nearby and are invested in the success of the community,” Greg said.
The restaurant, which also has a full bar, is centered around the Pizza Bar Combo menu item: for one price, customers can eat unlimited pizza, pasta, soup and salad. The pizza bar itself is where eight to 10 different kinds of pizza are laid out, and those who order the combo can help themselves to as many slices as they would like.
Greg said the goal of the pizza bar is to address the two main problems he noted when working at another pizza place: First, the pizza started to get cold as soon as it was delivered to the table, and second, people would have to compromise on toppings.
“The reception we’ve gotten has been great, and the reviews that we see online are very good,” Greg said. “We really want people to understand our concept, and my wife and I are here every day to make a point of speaking with people to hear what they have to say.”
Popular dishes include the Pepperoni Speziato, Alfredo White Cheese and Chicken Mango Habanero pizzas.
Looking forward, Greg said it would be amazing to expand to a second location, but they want to focus on making their restaurant as successful as they can.
“Hospitality is more than just good food and good service,” Greg said. “It’s the warmth that people feel knowing the owners are here and they care.”
