After nearly 12 years working as a computer programmer, Jessica Schell and her husband, Jeff, whose resumé boasts copious amounts of restaurant experience, joined in a business partnership with the mission of establishing the quintessential pizzeria. A trial-and-error process of testing various recipes, ingredient blends, and pizza-tossing robots led Jessica to Via's Pizzeria's precisely herbed and spiced dough, along with a made-from-scratch sauce with top-secret components. Freshly shredded cheese and local produce adorn each spherical foundation before a stone-baking session fuses ingredients into a delectable pie. Wheat dough helps to increase fiber intake, whereas a rice-based crust averts allergic reactions to gluten. Voted into the top five in the Topeka Capital-Journal's Best of Topeka within two months of opening, Via's continues to honor its owners dedication to gourmet slices, while supplying taste buds with delicious buffalo wings, italian subs, and calzones.
