Rather than reinvent the wheel, Nonna?s Pizzeria replicates Sicilian flavors by relying entirely on recipes from the old country. More than 15 tried-and-true ingredients ? including chopped spinach and ground beef ? crown the pizzeria's customized pies, while specialty pizzas feature beloved combinations such as barbecue chicken, bacon, and sausage, or a veggie medley of roasted red peppers, mushrooms, and marinated artichoke hearts. Besides pizza, other Italian favorites round out the menu, from meatball grinders to the house-specialty fried pasta, which is prepared using a recipe known only to Nonna's chefs and its most trusted pots and pans.
Rock Creek Pizza Co. serves up a menu of belly-filling specialty pies, salads, and sides. With sauces and hand-tossed crust made daily from scratch, the eatery's dough-slingers carefully craft pizzas to suit taste buds of all types. After a trip to the salad bar ($2.59 with a meal, $4.49 for all you can eat), diners can choose from various disk sizes and toppings to customize a pizza or sink canines into one of the many specialty pizzas ($6.15–$18.15). The six-meat special primes its bready floor with red sauce before laying down tiles of cheese, pepperoni, salami, ham, beef, sausage, and chorizo, and the barbecue chicken pizza joins mozzarella, feta, roasted chicken, pineapple, and red onions with Rock Creek’s honey barbecue sauce. Veggie vixens can wrap their laughing gear around the california garlic vegetarian, a white saucer overflowing with three cheeses, an array of garden-grown goodies, and a proven ability to ward off creatures of the night.
