Concept diners are dime-a-dozen in the Metro and each of them will try to outdo each other in terms of gimmicks and something new to offer. Project Pie has brands itself as "an everyday artisan pizza custom built by you". As their story goes, one man got sick of eating bad pizza and thought the good stuff cost too much. So he set out to createa fast, casual, custom pizza restaurant, and ended up pioneering the category. After opening Mod Pizza in Seattle and Pie-Ology in California, both to popular acclaim, he decided to move the idea forward. Thus, Project Pie was born and dubbed as the next generation of pizza pie.
