Update: Naked Pizza Is Opening in Brighton

[Ed. note: This article has been updated as of September 23, as the location of the upcoming Naked Pizza in Boston has changed.]

A New Orleans-based pizza place that is looking to go national--and has the financial backing of a well-known family in the Boston area--is going to be opening a location on the western edge of Brighton Center.

An email sent to us [on September 23] by Citysearch Boston indicates that Naked Pizza is coming to Washington Street in Brighton, about three blocks west of the Market Street intersection. Naked Pizza, which focuses on healthy pies (no preservatives, trans fats, or added sugar), currently has only three restaurants open nationwide [as of late September]--in New Orleans, Miami Beach, and Louisville, KY--but based on their website, a number of franchise locations have been awarded, including the one in Brighton as well as in Rochester, NY, Washington, DC, New York City, Las Vegas, NV, Princeton, NJ, and other spots.

According to the Wicked Local blog, Naked Pizza has gained the financial backing of the Kraft Group, a Foxborough-based holding company that is known in part for owning the New England Patriots. The blog indicates that Naked Pizza may be working on a few other franchise agreements in New England in addition to the Brighton location.

A January 2011 is planned for Naked Pizza in Brighton, according to the Citysearch note.

[February 18, 2011, update: According to their Facebook page, Naked Pizza opens in Brighton today.]

The address for this new pizza place in Brighton is: Naked Pizza, 433 Washington Street, Boston, MA, 02135. The website for the company is: http://nakedpizza.biz/

This sounds like it's replacing the shuttered Cold Stone Creamery location there.

They are building on top of an old gas station. Kinda scary.

Hopefully there will be "No Smoking" signs everywhere, both inside and out. :-)
