Rhonda recalled, "We made the best pizza we ever tasted, and Josh said one day when we own our own pizzeria, we will name it Lotamecheese" for its layers of meat and cheese. Now owners of Lotamecheese Pizza, they oversee a kitchen where regular and gluten-free crusts emerge topped with vegetables from local vendors, real bacon, chicken, feta cheese, and sliced tomato. The Canadian–style stone-baked pizzas pair up with wings, cheesy bread, and potato wedges to fill dinner tables or refrigerated glove boxes for meals on the go.
