In 1958, two brothers from Texas opened the first Pizza Inn, where they began assembling their signature pizzas out of cracker-thin crusts, tangy sauce, and generous piles of cheese. By 1994, the small, family-run restaurant grew into a sought-after franchise that was named No. 1 Pizza Chain in the United States by Restaurants & Institutions Magazine, as described on Pizza Inn?s About Us page. With the help of the world?s largest rolling pin, Pizza Inn?s doughy empire has stretched across more than 310 national and international locations. Although they still rely on time-honored pizza-making traditions that have lasted more than 50 years, the franchise?s chefs still make bold strides in new recipes, as evident in their bacon-cheeseburger pizza with beef, lean bacon, mustard, and pickles.

Old Chicago serves a menu teeming with tasty Italian eats, anchored by fresh pastas and piping-hot pizzas tossed with made-from-scratch dough. The sicilian pepperoni roll—a potent mix of pepperoni, pepper jack, mozzarella, green onion, and ranch dressing baked into a doughy fuselage ($7.99)—leads an arsenal of appetizers equipped to soothe early hunger pangs. Eight offerings of pasta include the santorini, a motley crew of mediterranean vegetables, including black olives, sun-dried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts, lovingly embraced by romano-and-parmesan-garnished cavatappi noodles ($10.79).

Every bite of hand-stretched, mozzarella-covered crust at Sbarro can trace its roots back to Naples, Italy. It was there that the Sbarro family began its rich culinary tradition, and when Gennaro and Carmela Sbarro came to America, they brought that tradition with them. In search of the American Dream, the pair opened their first salumeria in Brooklyn in 1956. And the neighborhood took notice. The homemade mozzarella and flavorful sausage soon earned the grocery a reputation for having fresh, authentic Italian food, a reputation that helped the Sbarros pepper New York with additional locations over the next decade. Then, in 1967, they established their first mall-based restaurant inside the Kings Plaza Shopping Center. With its open kitchen and speedy service, that eatery laid the groundwork for what would become one of the world's most popular pizzerias.

Today, Sbarro has grown into more than 1,000 restaurants across the globe. At each, chefs decorate their New York-style pizzas with everything from mushrooms and sausage to pineapple and broccoli, along with sauce made on-site using fresh herbs. And while Sbarro serves more than 70 million pizzas every year?enough to make pepperoni one of agriculture's most lucrative cash crops?they also craft other Italian favorites from recipes that have been passed down since 1947.
