The chefs at Tasty Crust Pizza concoct their dough from scratch daily, flatten it into thin discs, and cap the crispy pies with fresh toppings. Bury your nose in the restaurant's straightforward menu, then bury your face in a large carryout pie adorned with one of 14 toppings ($7.99), or bury family heirlooms under large, carryout, specialty pizzas such as the baked potato pizza or the bacon cheeseburger pizza ($11.99). Customers may dine-in to pair the pizza—the beloved superhero of foods—with a sidekick such as spicy fried ravioli ($3.99), wings ($6.99 for 10, $12.99 for 20), or a well-adjusted tax accountant.
Unique sourdough crust with a sauce recipe that will knock your socks off! Every pizza boasts a thick layer of mozzarella cheese, so if you have to ask for extra, it will be a small miracle! The company started in 1973...the location at 9011 Lima Road in Fort Wayne is the first Dine In restaurant to date. :) It's awesome.
800 Degrees is a family-operated Italian restaurant that specializes in Neapolitan-style pizza, brought to bubbling life in a wood-burning oven reaching temperatures of 800–1,000 degrees. Dough is made daily, with meats and toppings coming from local sources, including Gunthorp Farms. Make friends with the menu of traditional Italian eats by opting for a starter such as the oven-baked garlic bread ($4.50) or the mista salad, which drops toasted pine nuts, tomatoes, carrots, red onion, shaved fennel, a rice-wine vinaigrette, and parmesan cheese atop a bed of baby greens ($8). Pizzas range from simple cheese ($8.50) to the more exotic pulled-pork barbecue ($11), which corrals pulled pork, barbecue sauce, and mozzarella into a square dance of deliciousness. For diners wishing to test out their new ice-coated tongue, 800 Degrees slings its namesake pizza ($11.50), which boasts a culinary conflagration of house-made hot sausage, fire-roasted peppers, and chili oil. Gluten-free crust (additional $3) is also available.
