Gepetto's chef tosses a doughy mass high in to the air. With each flight, its circumference expands until it's ready to hold any of the pizzeria's 40 unique toppings. A brick oven bakes the specialty pies, which flaunt music-themed names such as Highway to Hell—an original or honey wheat crust covered in hot creamy sauce, fire-roasted peppers, chicken, cream cheese, fresh Serrano peppers, fiery hot Fritos, and a house-made jalapeno spice blend. Various salads and pasta entrees round out the menu of distinctive comfort foods.
Out in the dining room, groovy peace signs, old black-and-white photographs, and whimsical tchotchkes plaster the brick walls. Stringed lights twinkle above plates loaded with slices of the Buffalo Soldier pizza, baked orecchiette mac and cheese, and Mama Cass strombolis stuffed with Swiss cheese and black forest ham. Every day after the sun and moon switch out for the night shift, local musicians bust out their guitars and vocals for some rousing entertainment.
