A cheese pizza is a blank canvas, just waiting to be decorated with pepperoni to symbolize life, onions to symbolize sorrow, and pineapple to symbolize fruit. Eat something meaningful with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza at Marvin Mozzeroni's in Irondequoit.
With its name celebrating the delectable duo of mozzarella and pepperoni, Marvin Mozzeroni's bakes its bubbling pizza disks inside the brick oven of its spick-and-span kitchen. After hand-tossing dough, pizza artisans spackle crust canvases with a slathering of red or white sauce to begin custom pizza creations or craft specialty pies off the menu. Mozzarella spreads a cheesy blanket for the carnivorous toppings of the meat lover's specialty pie—ham, italian sausage, pepperoni, and meatballs shaped into miniature replicas of planet Earth ($16.99–$24.99). The chicken-wing pizza cools down its buffalo-wing sauce with a side of blue cheese ($14.99–$22.99), and Marvin's breakfast pizza combines cheesy scrambled eggs with a choice of three toppings ($16.99–$24.99). For antiestablishment eaters, custom pizza toppings include Cajun chicken and sweet peppers ($5.25–$22.99/pizza, depending on size; $.99–$3.59/topping, depending on size). Gourmet 12-inch hoagies are oven-baked to toasty perfection and serve as rulers for geometry students in a pinch, and the buffalo-chicken salad's chopped chicken fingers lounge in a bread-bowl jacuzzi filled with lettuce, pepperoncini, and black olives ($9.99).
A portmanteau of “mozzarella” and “pepperoni” gave Marvin Mozzeroni’s its playful name, but the origins of the restaurant itself are rooted in New York. The pizzeria was founded by two Rochester natives in 2004 as Starving Marvin's Pizza before they changed the name in 2007 when they turned their single eatery into a franchise. To this day native New Yorkers own and operate the five locations found throughout the state, including their two new locations in Henrietta and Greece.
The emphasis here is on their numerous specialty pizzas, baked in a brick oven and made fresh daily with hand-tossed dough. They come with a thick or thin crust and homemade red or white sauce, and can be ordered whole or by the slice. The menu also features other Italian food, including calzones and chicken parmigiana, as well as a mix of American-style classics such as hoagies, cheeseburgers, wings with homemade sauce and bleu cheese, and hot dogs. Those with food allergies can opt for gluten-free pizza.
