About this Business
From Our Editors
In Grande Pizza's stop-motion commercial, a sorcerous chef’s apprentice gives life to an army of tiny dough men. Rather than do his bidding, the dough men combine to form a towering monster. The door swings open, and a valiant executive chef appears. With a flick of the finger, he transforms the beast into a tasty pizza, eternally condemned to a pizza-box prison. All is right with the world.
It's this appreciation for irreverence and experimentation that has helped the Grande Pizza locations spread across Florida. Ovens in their shops spill scents of steam-laden pastas and hot subs with sautéed turkey or sausage. Of course, Grande's pizza is the hub around which the menu revolves. Fistfuls of cheese spread across a warm topography of ladled marinara. Chefs then scatter on toppings, such as mushrooms and ham, as well as pineapple and feta cheese.
