Frequently Asked Questions
What type of oven do you use?
Our ovens are imported straight from Modena, Italy; all 2,000lbs. of it. They are gas fired so we can maintain the highest level of consistency when cooking each pie. The oven runs at an average of 800 degrees so your pie only takes 90 seconds to cook. Fun fact depending on how busy we are & how many toppings you add; it takes us longer to prep your pie than to bake it! However, it*s still super-fast!
Is your concept all natural organic?
Why yes it is!! We are 100 % all natural & about 25% organic. We do not carry anything with high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated fats, no artificial colors, flavorings, or sweeteners.
How would you describe your pizza?
The way we describe our pizza is a cross between Neapolitan & Roman style. Neapolitan being the oven bakes at an average of 800 degrees & Roman due to its thin crust. It is not your typical thick crusted rim with very little toppings. We make sure to give what you pay for!
What is the difference between your Tino’s margherita & your DOC margherita?
The only difference is the cheese. The Tino’s is made with fresh mozzarella from cow’s milk & the DOC is made with fresh mozzarella from Buffalo’s milk. The Tino is our most traditional & kid’s favorite, however if you like a little zing on tradition The DOC will fulfill this craving. Either way you will not be disappointed!
What is EVOO?
Evoo just means extra virgin olive oil! It should be used just as much as your omg’s & your lol’s! Extra virgin means the very first press of the harvested olives from the hills of beautiful Italy.
Is your pizza flour clean?
Well of course our flour is clean! We don’t use any dirt remember! Although we do not use 00 flour typically found in Neapolitan pizzerias. Our flour is domestically milled, unbleached, & unbromated.
What pizza crust options do you have?
Our most popular being our regular white crust but we do also offer whole wheat & gluten free.
Speaking of GF, do you have other GF options & is it safe for celiac sufferers?
Unfortunately, if you suffer from celiac we are not a certified GF kitchen. We offer a gluten-free crust option, however, since we have other wheat-based products, there is a risk of cross-contamination using the same oven. We have apps & salad options as well, however once again there is wheat based products used all around the kitchen.
Are your cheeses pasteurized?
Yes, all of our cheeses are pasteurized. So for those ladies expecting, have no fear you can still enjoy our delicious product.

What’s the best way to reheat OP’s pizza?
Please, please, please do not use a microwave for quality assurance purposes. The best options are preheat your oven to 550-degrees. Put your pizza on a sheet pan or a pizza stone and place in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Another option is heat up a nonstick pan & slide your pie right into the pan until you hear some crackling! You can also ask for your pies to be lightly cooked if you’re not going to eat them right away & finish them off at home!
