About this Business
From Our Editors
In the kitchens of Italo's Pizza, cooks roll dough and stir sauce made according to family recipes that Italo Ventura brought over from Rome in 1965. After coming to America, Ventura relied on hard work and $1,080 worth of used equipment to build a pizza empire that now includes 11 franchises and two company-owned shops. Chefs prepare spaghetti sauce daily and spread pizza dough 11 to 15 inches in diameter before topping it with sauce, real cheese, and options such as pineapple, olives, bacon, and jalapeño peppers. Chicken pieces can be ordered in dinners and boxes, which come complete with Jo-Jo potatoes, coleslaw, and an automated security system.
