It must have been kismet. Mitch Rotolo?s last name means to ?roll? in Italian. As in to roll out dough. And that is exactly what Mitch did, founding his first Rotolo?s Pizza in 1996. His blossoming pizzeria?with 26 locations and growing?treats customers to pizzas crafted from housemade dough and sauce made fresh daily. The chefs top crusts with creative mixes, including a bacon cheeseburger pizza and the Muffaletta pie with pepperoni, Canadian bacon, salami, and olive salad. They also roll out an 18? crust with 10 different toppings that weighs a total of 5 pounds and feeds six people?more impressive numbers than seen at the Hulk's NFL tryouts. Pastas and warm sandwiches round out the menu.

One could say that the only thing husband and wife team Mark and Mary Beth Bentz love more than cooking is their hometown of Pittsburgh. When the duo opened their pizza shop in 2006, they decided to create a space dedicated to providing quality American eats to go or while catching the night’s Steelers game. The pair man the kitchen seven days a week, packing dough into a menu full of pizzas, calzones, and hoagies. To give clients a bit more of their Pennsylvania homeland, the pair also pour pints of local Iron City beer and sell cookbooks of classic Pittsburgh recipes divided by category and the Monongahela, Allegheny, and Ohio Rivers.
