Borriello Brothers Pizza didn't just copy New York-style pizza?they imported it. Owned by New York natives, the pizza joint pays tribute to the city's staple, craftting their pizzas with attention to detail. Their sauce comes from California tomatoes, they only use 100% real whole milk mozzarella cheese, and they layer their pizzas with sausage made from prime cuts of pork. The result is a pie that grew out of original New York recipes, just as the city's skyscrapers sprout from cracks in the sidewalks. In addition to traditional NY-style pizzas, they serve Sicilian crust pizzas, and feature signature pies with toppings such as Genoa salami, sliced steak, and baked ziti. The menu also incorporates calzones, pastas, and other Italian specialties.
After spending years working for Dominos Pizza, Vince Schmuhl decided that he could do a better job of preparing and delivering quality pies to people's homes. He challenged the nationwide chain's dominance in the region by founding the first Blackjack Pizza on June 29, 1983.
Although delivering oven-fresh pies within 30 minutes was still a major goal for Schmuhl, he emphasized the importance of quality ingredients using sauce made from freshly packed tomatoes as well as hand-tossed dough that never sees the inside of a freezer or cryogenic chamber. This dedication to quality and speedy service allowed Blackjack Pizza to not only survive, but also thrive over the decades. The chain now includes more than 40 stores operating in four different states.
In addition to offering seven signature pies, Blackjack Pizza also allows customers to build their own order from crust to toppings. A choice of up to four savory, tangy, and piquant sauces form the base, topped with any of the 3 available cheeses, 7 meats, and 10 freshly diced vegetables. Regardless of the toppings, Blackjack Pizza respects the potential danger of food allergies by ensuring that none of its pies ever contain traces of MSG, peanuts, or peanut oil.
Fat Boys Pizza was born at an intersection of two dreams: to create authentic, quality Italian pies with the speed and delivery of chain restaurants. And on pizzas, the restaurant delivers: pies come topped with classics such as pepperoni or sausage. There is even a cheese pizza, the Gut Buster, that spans 28 inches and carries more than 8 pounds of flavor, feeding 10 to 15 adults or one Ninja Turtle. But pizzas aren’t all the eatery dishes out—13 hot and cold sub sandwiches present ingredients like salami, turkey, and bacon, while baked spaghetti and chicken parmesan pair up with salads and garlic bread.
While the heart of Johnny Carino's menu is rooted in genuine Italian traditions, forward-thinking creativity has birthed what they like to call their signature dishes. Led by executive chef Chris Peitersen, the seasoned kitchen staff blends fresh ingredients along with extra time to create high-quality, spiced Italian preparations. Diners will find entrees such as 16-layer lasagna with made-from-scratch sauce, and pizzas made with home-baked crust. Other signature choices include the spicy shrimp and chicken, baked stuffed mushrooms topped with house lemon basil cream sauce, and tiramisu made from the ground up. Entrees can be paired any selection from Carino's extensive wine list and drink menu.
Chefs at Pizza Time! hand roll their pizza crusts and pile each base with toppings including feta, salami, bacon bits, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes. Bowls of housemade hot sauce wait to cover warm batches of chicken wings or a slapstick actor dining with his boss. A gluten-free menu brims with wheatless versions of pizzas, subs, and pasta. After dinner, dishes of freshly-shaven hawaiian ice ride in the palms of patrons meandering toward arcade games or to an outdoor patio with views of Pikes Peak.
