'Za Pizza Opens in Hillsboro Village
Karl and Sarah Worley, the team behind Nashville's Biscuit Love, just opened their newest restaurant, 'Za (short for pizza) in Hillsboro Village. The restaurant serves handcrafted, wood-fired 12" pizzas, made with locally sourced ingredients. Just like the Worleys believe that biscuits bring everyone to the table, so too do they believe that pizza has a way of bringing people together. The concept for the restaurant came after a recent trip to Italy, where the Worleys discovered parallels between Italian and southern American culinary cultures.
The vibe at 'Za is fast and casual. There are nine signature pizza options on the menu for customers to choose from, and two options for dining - takeout or hangout. For those who choose to hang around, the ambience at 'Za is just as warm and welcoming as the pizzas. Inviting colors of dark red, ivory and charcoal, along with a hand painted mural of Bill Murray and an apropos quote about pizza, create a modern visual aesthetic. Local artist Becca Wildsmith and the craftsmen at Novel Woodworks lent their talents to create the artwork and family-style tables, which are meant to facilitate a communal dining experience.

Equally impressive, the handmade Italian pizza oven - named "Devault," after Karl's favorite culinary teacher - was crafted by Naples-based Stefano Ferrara, whose family has a history of building brick ovens in Italy. 'Za is a welcome addition to the Hillsboro Village neighborhood and is sure to please.
'Za is open seven days a week from 11:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.
