Casper is getting a new pizzeria on the east side across the parking lot from Kohl's.

As a huge fan of pizza, I'm fired up for the grand opening of the newest pizza place preparing to open their oven to the public.  Firehouse Wood Fired Pizza is preparing to open their doors in the next couple weeks (no exact date has been set at this time).

Firehouse Wood Fired Pizza is a locally owned restaurant that will feature made to order pizzas FAST!  REALLY FAST!!  The installed in the eatery is a 1000 degree wood/gas fired stove with a rotating cooking surface that will perfectly cook your pizza in approximately 4 minutes.  Like I said - Fast!

The Staten Island, New York chain is a 12 time International Pizza Award Winner.  In addition to offering 5 specialty (11 inch) pizzas on their menu which sound delicious - I'm looking forward to trying out their 'Build Your Own Pizza' bar that will feature 35 toppings and 4 different sauce choices.  This will give everyone a chance to have a pizza made exactly the way you want.

Owners at Firehouse Wood Fired Pizza are putting the finishing touches on the restaurant, training staff and waiting for city approval for their beer and wine liqueur license and then they'll be ready to serve Casper and the surrounding communities.

You can follow them on Facebook for the latest updates and an invite to a soft opening as well as the official Grand Opening.  Click Here to follow Firehouse Wood Fired Pizza on Facebook.

I for one, can't wait!!  Mmmm... Pizza...
