The Pizza Machine & Co.’s culinary crew slathers hand-tossed dough with house-made sauce and ships it to diners’ mouths in a fun-filled, warehouse-style eatery. Doughy disks populate the pizzeria’s menu, piled with handfuls of fresh toppings such as sliced tomatoes, grilled shrimp, pineapple, and artichokes. Warm breadsticks and garden-fresh salads accompany pizza packages for an Italian ensemble that’s more memorable than Pavarotti’s brief stint with the Mario brothers. Specialty pies, such as the taco pizza bearing seasoned ground beef, tortilla chips, and shredded cheese, blends cultural cuisines like a speed-dating convention for cookbooks. A suite of steamy calzones and baked chicken wings round out the menu’s offerings.
Staff maintains a festive atmosphere at The Pizza Machine & Co., playfully flinging dough to keep diners’ minds as delighted as their mouths are full. A custom-rigged, ceiling-mounted crane delivers 40-inch pies to hard-partying tables aswirl with flashing lights, creating a festive tableau in which to swill the bounty of domestic and imported beverages on offer.
The Pizza Machine & Co.
Stepping inside The Pizza Machine & Co. always feels a little bit like stepping into a carnival. Staffers hand-toss discs of dough high into the air like jugglers and a pizza-themed chandelier mimics the feeling of a fun house. Though the sights might draw customers in, the shop, like any good carnival, has to keep them coming back. That’s where the restaurant’s chefs come in, creating hand-tossed pizzas and Italian cuisine in both classic forms and zany reinventions. Take their signature 40-inch pizza, for instance, which dons an unlimited combination of toppings to feed several dozen people. Their standard-sized pizzas often mimic the flavors of classic dishes, as with such fan favorites as the bruschetta, the hero, and the taco pizza. They also pair their pies with appetizers and desserts such as cheesy breadsticks, crab-stuffed mushrooms, and s’mores pizzas to create a meal as flavorful as a Willy Wonka employee’s severance package.
