“We are profoundly grateful to all of our loyal customers for your support over the years,” a post stated on Pizza Peel’s Instagram page. “While this chapter is ending, we look forward to our new sister restaurant concept, the Improper Pig … opening soon with an exciting new menu to explore.”

The original location of Pizza Peel in Cotswold will remain open, the post read. That restaurant is at 4422 Colwick Road.
