Oath Craft Pizza is ushering in the weekend with a brand new location at Chestnut Hill Square. The ultra-fast casual chain—its cracker-crisp pies cook up in 90 seconds or less—is opening its third location on Friday, March 18.

The original Oath location debuted on Nantucket’s Straight Wharf last year, and a grab-and-go counter opened in the South Station food court in the fall. Chestnut Hill is the company’s first eat-in restaurant, with 16 seats.

Cooked in electric convection ovens, Oath’s quick-baking pizzas use a proprietary, olive-oil infused crust. Create your own “Selfie” pie, or choose from flavors like the Spicy Mother Clucker, with Sriracha chicken, rosé-pickled red onion, and a sweet and piquant Sriracha drizzle; and the Muffled Trushroom, with truffle sauce, mozzarella, roasted portobello, ricotta, and parmesan.

The Chestnut Hill location won’t have Oath’s breakfast menu, but it will offer specials like the Porky Fig, with mozzarella, brie, dried black mission figs, crispy pancetta, balsamic glaze, and basil; and the Green Matcha Power Salad, comprised of green and purple kale, baby spinach, toasted matcha green tea quinoa, Oath cashew “power dust,” dried cranberry, feta, and a Mediterranean dressing.

Oath has brought on a new line of natural sodas, Stubborn Soda, developed by PepsiCo. Stubborn sodas do not contain high-fructose corn syrup, and they are available in flavors like back cherry with tarragon, lemon berry acai, agave vanilla cream, and classic root beer. Launched this summer, Oath is the first restaurant east of Denver to carry Stubborn Soda, according to Breakaway, a brand capital firm that’s a partner in Oath.

The venture capital-funded Oath has expressed ambitious growth plans in the Boston area. John Burns, chief investment officer of Breakaway and the pizzeria’s executive chairman, told Boston in October that Oath expected to have eight to 10 stores open by the end of this year. Up next is Davis Square; a Breakaway representative said they’re aiming for a June opening in Somerville. The Nantucket location is closed seasonally; it will reopen in mid-May, the rep added.

Oath joins eateries such as Bon Me and Sweetgreen in the Chestnut Hill development. It will be open daily from 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m.

210 Boylston St., Chestnut Hill, 617-467-4232 or oathpizza.com.
