Pie Five Pizza Co. opened its second area restaurant, this one in Lenexa's Oak Park Commons, at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The restaurant, 12154 W. 95th St., serves the company's handmade pizzas, which bake in a high-speed oven in only 2½ minutes. The name Pie Five comes from the 5 minutes it should take from pizza order to pizza pickup. The menu includes build-your-own pizzas and specialty pies including chicken carbonara and barbecue pulled pork, along with salads and desserts.

The new area franchisee also opened a location at 13366 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park, in August. It is now looking at sites for a third location that could open in March.

Along with the two Kansas locations, there are now 12 locations in Texas, two in Utah, and one in North Carolina. But more than 110 franchise units are under contract.
