Opening in 2020, PIE.ZAA has quickly become Asheville’s premier, late-night eatery for NY-style pizza. In addition, it is now the area’s largest pizza shop and is conveniently located in Downtown Asheville’s South Slope on Millard Ave. PIE.ZAA’s signature pizza pies are huge, measuring 28 inches, and can serve between 8 and 16 depending on how it’s sliced.

If you would rather go for a simple slice, you can do that as well as PIE.ZAA has by-the-slice options. There are even seasonal offerings featured that change regularly, ensuring something fun and new is always available at this trendy, minimalist establishment.
