The latest addition to the downtown State College pizza scene opened its doors for the first time on Tuesday.
UR Pizza is the newest among restaurateur Hitham Hiyajneh’s list of local eateries, and is located at 214 East Calder Way next to Underground Burgers and Crepes in the unit that formerly housed Tazzah Fresh.
UR Pizza allows customers to create their own personal-sized flatbread pizzas. Patrons choose from a mix of cheeses, toppings, and sauces, displayed in a fast-casual bar style, to create their personalized pies. Toppings include everything from broccoli and grilled chicken to spinach and pineapple.
This list will be expanded in the future, according to manager Maher Bder. UR Pizza also plans to offer a size smaller than its current template within the next week.
The restaurant will open at 11 a.m. daily and will stay open until 3 a.m. on weekends. Weekday closing times have yet to be established. Its interior will remain the colorful, laid-back space that arrived with Tazzha Fresh, according to Bder.
