You can top off Pizza Parma's pies with any of more than 30 uncommon gourmet toppings. That includes cheeses such as gouda and greek mountain cheese, meats such as crabmeat, gyros, and steak, and veggies such as artichoke hearts, eggplant, and broccoli. The pizzeria’s chefs can put the same rich ingredients in a steaming calzone or string them on a necklace for a loved one. Alternatively, there’s a wide selection of wraps and hoagies, which, depending on what part of the country you're in, are also known as "grinders", "heroes", or "denver omelets".
Choices abound at Captain's Pizza & Subs, where customers build their own pies, pulling from ingredient options that include 5 different cheeses, 13 meats, 11 veggies, and a generous slathering of homemade tomato or garlic sauce. Creative types can start by sprinkling a disc of the shop's fresh, daily made dough with ricotta or sharp cheddar, adding on pepperoni, capicola, and gyro meat or lending a pop of color in the form of fresh chopped broccoli, artichoke hearts, and roasted red peppers. Those with indecisive appetites can let the cooks do their picking for them by opting for one of 17 gourmet pies that pile on pre-vetted flavor combinations such as steak, mushrooms, and ranch sauce or barbecue sauce, grilled chicken, and red onions. To round out the menu, the restaurant also offers a smattering of specialty pasta dishes, salads, and 8- or 16-inch hoagies, along with their famous Captain's Wings, which arrive tossed in one of four sauces that vary in both spiciness and drinkability.
The pie artisans at Artisan Pizza Co ladle homemade sauce over freshly made dough, forging gourmet bake-at-home pizzas for customers to cook from the comfort of their own homes. During the pizza-making process, they pay careful attention to every detail to ensure that each pie leaves their kitchen at the pinnacle of quality and tastiness. In addition, they concoct their gluten-free options in a gluten-free prep area with specially designated utensils to avoid cross-contamination, and, when in season, they source many of their ingredients locally from artisanal enterprises to guarantee they're as fresh and environmentally friendly as a vine-ripened Greenpeace boat. They also whip up salads and bake-at-home cookies that, like their pizza counterparts, come with easy-to-follow cooking instructions.
The chefs at Minutello's Restaurant & Lounge work from scratch when assembling gnocchi dumplings or crafting the tomato sauce they spread over baked ziti casseroles. Staff hand-toss each pizza before sprinkling the crust with a special blend of spices and layering it with freshly grated cheese. Patrons can personalize their pies by adding meatballs, green peppers, or pieces of monogrammed stationery before they slide into a brick oven.
The cooks at Nobby's Pizzeria sprinkle hand-tossed crusts with tangy, homemade sauce and aromatic cheese made from a smoked provolone blend. In addition to classics such as pepperoni and sausage, they adorn seven signature pizzas with creative toppings ranging from ranch and buffalo sauce to capicola and olives. Their menu also includes other Italian-American staples, including meaty hoagies and ricotta-covered calzones.
The chefs at Pizzutti's Restaurant roll and slice delicate ribbons of spaghetti, and other pastas in the bustling kitchen. The housemade pastas, alongside other noodles imported from Italy, act as anchor for dishes that also feature housemade pesto. Classically prepared Prince Edward mussels with tomatoes and chives join the seasonally rotating menu, served indoors, on the patio, or next to a Leaning Tower of Pisa hologram.
