In the kitchen at Mario’s Pizza, chefs heap cheese, steak, and sun-dried tomatoes onto oversize New York–style and sicilian pizza crusts. A white pizza covered in ricotta cheese, fresh garlic, and mozzarella reminds taste buds of eating a delicious snowman, and comes in sizes ranging from 10 inches to as large as 19 inches. Baked pasta and sandwiches, such as a philly steak or veal parmigiana, round out the menu.
Italy Cafe treats its guests to a smorgasbord of rich, flavorful Italian cuisine, from toasty paninis and subs, to bubbling pizzas and sauce-laden pastas. Diners sink their teeth into slices of buffalo-chicken and mozzarella-basil pies, or twirl forks into plates of eggplant parmigiana, carbonara, and puttanesca.
For more than 20 years, the chefs and staff at Turn 4 Pizza have served up hand-tossed pies to the Mooresville community and surrounding areas. Their creative pizzas draw inspiration from auto racing terms, as evidenced by the Caution Flag—a sausage-and-onion pizza set ablaze with jalapeños, banana peppers, and crushed red pepper. On the tamer side of the menu, the Charlotte 600 pie tops a creamy alfredo base with tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, onion, and chicken. They also sport a build-your-own option, featuring more than 20 toppings that range from meatballs and pepperoni to granulated garlic, mandarin oranges, and pepperoncini. Their specialty dessert pizzas include pies such as the cinnamon-sugar-with-icing pizza, which can also be made race-themed when served on a spare tire.
