Marco's Pizza founder Pasquale "Pat" Giammarco began helping out at his family?s pizzeria when he was just a boy. The eatery provided a taste of home to the Giammarco clan, who moved to the United States from Italy when Pat was 9 years old. Together with his father, young Pat learned the secrets to creating exceptional pizza sauce: three types of vine-ripened tomatoes and spices that can only be imported from Italy or the moon.

The perfected sauce recipe continues to guide Pat?s kitchen operations?although, these days he has considerably more help. Marco's Pizza has 425 locations in more than half the states as well as in the Bahamas, each store tossing fresh pizza dough daily before sprinkling on a trio of fresh, never-frozen cheeses.

Bolstered by a consistent stream of media praise, including a spotlight in the Daily Bruin in 2011, Extreme Pizza's thrill-seeking founders channel their penchant for outdoor adventure into a menu of healthy, creative pizzas. Their chefs slice veggies and twirl dough each day before molding pizzas such as the Paia Pie, a smorgasbord of hawaiian pineapple, canadian bacon, and mandarin oranges atop a bed of mozzarella and cheddar. The website conveniently displays approximate calorie counts to accommodate diets and phobias of eating foods containing prime numbers.

Patrons can carryout take and bake pizzas, or kids can blow through excess energy in the game area while adults scrutinize incoming broadcasts on TVs in the dining room.

Though their italian sausage and pepperoni carry robust, traditional flavors, the chefs at Mancinos Pizza & Grinders aren't afraid to get creative. On their zesty-ranch pizza, for example, they sprinkle bacon over a ranch base, and on their chicken-alfredo pizza they spread mozzarella and chicken atop creamy dollops of the familiar pasta sauce. Diners who seek three-dimensional meals but don't want to wrap their pizzas around soccer balls can bite into their choice of more than 20 types of grinders—subs filled with such treasures as barbecue pork, tuna, and salami. The family-owned business has honed its roster of italian sandwiches and pizzas throughout its 15-year history, preceding its dishes with hot wings and gooey bacon cheese fries.

When the cooks at Brick Oven Pizzeria pull their specialty pizzas out of their eponymous ovens, the smell of sizzling sauce, crispy crust, and flavorful toppings pervades the entire restaurant. Guests sitting at tables turn heads expectantly toward the kitchen as waiters bring out orders, carrying plates piled with meatball grinders, baked spaghetti marinara, or chicken bacon ranch pizza. Cooks can sprinkle the crispy crust with toppings ranging from four styles of pork to chicken, spinach, and mozzarella. They also offer gluten-free options for customers who have food allergies or who are abstaining from bread out of respect for their brother-in-law, who is half gingerbread man.
