King Pizza & Mediterranean?s white pizza does not have a drop of sauce. Instead, chefs cover the crust with heaps of mozzarella and ricotta cheeses, building up a monochromatic deliciousness. Of course, there are many other pizza creations that do include pizza sauce, along with ranch dressing, roast beef, jalapenos, and chicken. And the chefs really flex their creative muscles with the Greek-influenced pizza, which treats taste buds to gyro meat, onions, feta cheese, and tzatziki sauce. If people want to forgo the pie, they can also take their gyros tucked into pitas, or dig into the pastas and burgers that also feature on King Pizza's menu.
The Petersen family takes food seriously. The owners of Graziano's Pizza and Sports make everything from scratch, from the dough and sauces to the tiny uniforms the athletes in the restaurant's TVs wear. They also adorn their pizzas and entrees—such as the vegetarian pizza and the eggplant parmesan dish—with ingredients culled from local suppliers. And just in case you need to email someone after completing the stuffed pie challenge (completing an entire stuffed pizza in one hour by yourself), the restaurant offers complimentary WiFi.
Inside Barone's NY Pizza & Brew, pizzas fill the air with aromas that speak of mozzarella, italian sausage, meatballs, and jalapeños. Specialty pies call attention to their New York style with honorary titles such as The Statue of Liberty, with mashed potatoes and bacon, and The Bronx Bomber, with steak, green peppers, and onions. But these pizzas are only part of the feast Barone's chefs spread. In addition to tossing toppings onto dough discs, they stuff them into calzones named after Sylvester Stallone, Frank Sinatra, and Picasso. And they use Amoroso rolls as a foundation for hot subs, which come slathered in marinara or tossed in buffalo sauce and feature names such as The Betsy Ross—a colorful mélange of sausage, onions, and peppers honoring the person who made the first American flag.
The chefs at Paganos Pizzeria plate Jersey-style pizzas and robust Italian entrees, served in a dining room that proudly displays Garden State license plates and a poster of historic Maplewood, NJ alongside an array of Reader's Choice certificates from the Hometown News that commend the eatery for winning in multiple categories. The restaurant is also found on Urbanspoon's list of Best Daytona Beach restaurants. Diners pair their veal parmigiana, baked ziti, or calzones with wines by the glass or carafe, cold brews, or soft drinks.
From its humble beginnings in 1959, Little Caesars has stretched its cheesy empire from coast to coast, doling out trademark deep-dish pizzas, sauce-drenched wings, and cheesy bread. In keeping with its history as a forward-looking franchise, Little Caesars has cooked up an iPhone application that highlights popular menu items and shoots out piping-hot pies from the phone's port. The pizza purveyor sends its Love Kitchen, a big-rig pizza kitchen on wheels, across the United States and Canada to fill the bellies of homeless people and disaster victims with its daily kneaded dough and freshly shaved mozzarella.
You could say that Panheads Pizzeria owners Eric and Felicia Ross were born to make pizza. The brother and sister team grew up in pizza joints, learning the basics of creating a crispy-crusted pizza from their grandmother, who just happens to be the famed Mabel of Mabel's Pizza.
Today they're building on more than 40 decades of family tradition, while also creating a few legacies of their own: specifically their gourmet pizzas. Each piece of hand-rolled dough is topped with ingredients not usually found in pizzerias, such as chicken, black bean corn salsa, jalapenos, and sour cream, which graces one particular favorite called the Ace of Spades. For an extra punch of flavor, they can also drizzle on one of nine specialty sauces such as tangy balsamic reduction, sweet chili aioli, or rich pesto. Outside of their signature square meals, the duo also serve up Italian favorites including Caesar salads and homemade meatballs in a teriyaki, buffalo barbecue, or classic marinara sauce.
