SANTA NELLA - Pizza Factory has joined the Santa Nella business community.

The new business is located at 13104 B Highway 33.

It is Santa Nella’s only local pizzeria, and will feature hot calzones, hand-made pastas, sandwiches and salads in addition to its trademark hand-tossed pizzas.

The Pizza Factory menu is prepared daily with fresh ingredients such as hand-grated 100 percent mozzarella cheese, slow-cooked meat sauce and meatballs that are hand-rolled in-house.

The new Santa Nella restaurant is owned by Ernie Amorim, his wife Patricia and brother Kevin Amorim.

The family has been with the Pizza Factory brand for more than 11 years and also owns three additional locations in Gustine, south Salinas and north Salinas.

“One Pizza Factory just wasn’t enough for us,” said Ernie Amorim. “Shortly after opening in Gustine we knew we wanted to introduce more communities to everything Pizza Factory has to . We can’t wait to bring a pizzeria to Santa Nella.”

Pizza Factory is actively involved in the communities it serves.

Through local partnerships, Pizza Factory’s “No Bully Zone” raises awareness of and fights to end bullying in schools and in the community.

The Santa Nella Pizza Factory will also offer fund-raising programs that support local schools, youth sports leagues and other community groups and organizations.

The pizzeria will be open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
