Welcome to Hot Z Pizza!, For 20 years we have dedicated ourselves to providing our customers with high quality food in a casual environment at reasonable prices., At "Hot Z" we make our own sauces, we cut our own vegetables and we make our own dough each and every day to ensure that our products are second-to-none., About Us, A lot of people ask us where the name "Hot Z Pizza" came from so we'd like to take this opportunity to give you a brief history of "Hot Z":, In 1991 John Hazipetros opened a pizza restaurant in Hawthorne Shopping Center on Fruitville Pike in Mannheim Township. Rather than call his new restaurant "Hazipetros Pizza" he decided to give it a hip new twist and came up with the name "Hot Z Pizza". It sounded like his name and had a unique, easy to remember ring to it....so it stuck. The rest, as they say, is history! John continues to operate the original Hot Z Pizza in Hawthorne Center. In April of 1996, Kirk Firoglanis and John Hazipetros purchased the former "Your Place" restaurant on Harrisburg Pike in Landisville and opened "Hot Z Pizza Restaurant & Lounge". Kirk's brothers Manny and Greg joined the family business by becoming partners in September of 2000. This new location featured the same great food along with a lively full service lounge.
