Armed with only an oven and an old treasure map made of mozzarella cheese, the chefs at Rival’s Pizza bake a long list of pizzeria specialties to a bubbly golden brown. The eatery models its menu after an old-fashioned pizza parlor, but staffers also whip up dough disks in modern 30-inch sizes and make it rain with free sprinklings of parmesan, poppy seeds, crushed red peppers, and cinnamon. Complementing Rival’s main dish are pasta, stromboli, calzones, and a smores dessert pizza with Hershey's chocolate; delivery is available for an extra dollar.

Back in 1957 when Marie and Joseph "Jo-Jo" Hashim founded Jo Jo's Original Pizza, they decided to concoct original recipes for their breads, crusts, and housemade sauce. Fifty years later, most of these savory instructions are still in use, guiding chefs as they craft traditional pies as well as Jo Jo's specialty hawaiian and taco pizzas. Run today by Marie and Joseph's descendants, Jo Jo's rounds out its menu with other classic Italian fare, including housemade lasagna, pastas, and subs.

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.

As a backup quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bruce Gradkowski often has his hands full training and running drills. Whenever he gets a chance, though, he heads back to Toledo?where he first made his name as starting QB for the Toledo Rockets?to visit the restaurant he opened at the edge of campus. Echoing Gradkowski's love of his adopted hometown, the menu overflows with dishes made with locally sourced ingredients, such as the salmon filet, praised by the Toldeo Blade for its "light coating of salty parmesan cheese crust ? cooked perfectly and served with a compound butter that added to the richness of the dish."

Say it's 1 a.m., you've got some friends over, and everyone is hungry. As if the late hour doesn't complicate the situation enough, you've got one friend who wants tacos, another who's championing gyros, and you're craving pizza. Enter The Oasis Restaurant & Delivery: a small family of eateries that delivers late night and packs all of the aforementioned dishes onto one menu.

The menu's custom New York­–style pizzas can be topped with anything from meatballs to sauerkraut, and its quesadillas and tacos overflow with fillings such as pulled pork and battered cod. There's plenty of Italian eats as well—including oven-baked pasta and stromboli—alongside a thoroughly American lineup of burgers, all-beef hot dogs, and fried chicken shaped like the 50 states. Recent additions to the menu include wings in one of 13 sauces and Oasis melts—grilled cheeses stuffed with corned beef, bacon, or barbecued pulled pork.
