It must have been kismet. Mitch Rotolo’s last name means to “roll” in Italian. As in to roll out dough. And that is exactly what Mitch did, founding his first Rotolo’s Pizzeria in 1996. His blossoming pizzeria—with 26 locations and growing—treats customers to pizzas crafted from housemade dough and sauce made fresh daily. The chefs top crusts with creative mixes, including a bacon cheeseburger pizza and the Muffaletta pie with pepperoni, Canadian bacon, salami, and olive salad. They also roll out an 18” crust with 10 different toppings that weighs a total of 5 pounds and feeds six people—more impressive numbers than seen at the Hulk's NFL tryouts. Pastas and warm sandwiches round out the menu, which customers can enjoy outside in the Italian-style cafe.
