The Pizza Studio at 528 Gateway Drive, located under the Clock Tower at Gateway Shopping Center North, offers guests the opportunity to create their own individual pizza from a wide assortment of highest-quality ingredients including crusts, specialty sauces, premium meats, fresh and roasted vegetables at value-minded prices.  Additional offerings include signature “Masterpiece” and Starving Artist” Pizzas, Fresh Oven-Baked Cookies and drinks.  The company is known for its variety of flavors of their proprietary thin, light and crispy crusts and highest quality topping ingredients.  Each custom-built pizza creation is a masterpiece in its own right.


“We’ve worked with several restaurant brands over the years and identified Pizza Studio as a strong concept with a scalable business model.” Said Tankel.


“We are thrilled to be working with Zane and his team at Apple-Metro as they expand the Pizza Studio portfolio” said Samit Varma, co-founder of Pizza Studio.  “His experience and knowledge of the restaurant industry, of scaling businesses, and of the New York Market are unrivaled.  We could not have a better partner for this expansion”.


The first NY Area Pizza Studio opened July of last year at Fordham Plaza, Bronx, NY across from Fordham University.


Pizza Studio is a Fast-Casual franchise concept that invites guests to create their own custom pizza masterpiece.  Since its founding in 2012, Pizza Studio has signed development agreements with several experienced multi-unit operators for more than 136 units across the country with several more in the works.
