If it can be eaten hot,
it can most likely be
stuffed into a creative
calzone. Let's explore!

My favorite pizzerias
are not just places
that serve good food,
they're also comfortable and dependable.
But what happens
when a standby lets
me down?

To me, there is no
better pasta or
pizza combination than
cream, spinach,
cheese and either
chicken or shrimp. This
taste profile is luscious
with a bright textural
crunch along with a
good protein chew that
is hard to beat.

Rome's Pizza and Pizza
Italia are two very different concepts, but they
share similar challenges.
They've been open for
more than 30 years.
Both are finding new
strategies to answer
the question: how do
we stay relevant in a
changing community and
industry?
