Not content with pizza in the modern age, 900 Degrees Pizzeria uses the pizza-making techniques born in Naples, Italy long ago. The recipe for the dough is "authentic" and all pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven to add shades to the taste. This oven's average temperature is, you guessed it, 900 degrees Fahrenheit. That's a hot pizza! The thin crusted pizzas come in flavors like "Vesuvio" with fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers, ricotta, and prosciutto. For those very few who don't like pizza, other entrees such as Red Pepper Panini and Tuscan Ribeye Steak are available.
