After Being Gutted by Fire, Beauty's Pizza in Cambridge Moving to Former Pizza Pie-er Space

photo of James's Gate, Jamaica Plain, MAA pizza spot in Cambridge that was destroyed in a fire a year and a half ago is returning, and it will move into the space where another pizzeria had been.

According to a license commission page, Beauty's Pizza is seeking a license to operate on Hampshire Street, with the address indicating that it would take over the space where Pizza Pie-er was until last spring before closing--and apparently attempting to change its name to A+ Pizza & Grill (it is not known if that name was ever used). Beauty's had been located on Broadway in the same building as MuLan Taiwanese Cuisine, but both restaurants were gutted in a fire in December of 2014; MuLan had been hoping to reopen in its space this spring, but it has not opened as of yet.

Pizza Pie-er also had a location in South Boston, but that one shut down around the same time as the Cambridge shop. (Its Providence location remains open.)

The address for the new location of Beauty's Pizza is 187 Hampshire Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139. Its website is at

[August 26 update: A comment posted here from the person behind Beauty's Pizza indicates that the place hopes to open in its new home within the next month.]

[September 14 update: According to the restaurant, Beauty's Pizza is now open in its new location on Hampshire Street.]
