About Us

We're devoted to doing the best work we can for you.



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 Manheim 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 and has been there 30 years, and we’re entering 26 this spring.

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.

Hot Z Pizza remains a family-owned, community-centered restaurant dedicated to serving high-quality food in a casual atmosphere at reasonable prices. So if you are looking for the best pizza in Lancaster pa, you should check us out!
