Fast-Casual Pizza In Elkhorn

It’s not an easy feat to make good pizza quickly. If you’re looking for pizza in Elkhorn, Neb., you can find fast, good, and personalized pizza now at 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria. The franchise opened its second location in the Metro – and it’s true, the pizzeria’s 1000-degree oven bakes pizzas in two minutes. My family was invited to a dinner out at the restaurant so I could tell you all about it.

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria. I was compensated for writing about my experience. As always, my opinions, descriptions and typos are my own.

The Food At 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria
Let’s just jump into the food, that’s what you’re curious about, right? While the menu does branch out out to include some salads and fire-roasted chicken wings, the main reason to go here is pizza. You can order one of their classics, with toppings and sauces already decided, or you can create your own. The price doesn’t change whether you add two or 12 toppings.

You can tweak the classics, too. I heard the White Out pizza was delicious as is: Extra virgin olive oil, shredded mozzarella, parmesan, fresh mushrooms, and garlic. But, I met Derek Benson-Williams, the franchise’s regional manager, and he mentioned he added bacon to the White Out.

Good call, Derek. Good call.

The White Out with bacon was a savory treat, but the standout pizza was the one Mr. Wonderful ordered. He got the Smokey Pollo and made no changes to it. This flavorful pizza has sweet and smokey bourbon barbecue sauce, roasted chicken, bacon, red onion, red peppers, pineapple, shredded mozzarella and blue cheese. I’m not a fan of blue cheese, but on this pizza, it was just right.

My family all went with Neapolitan-style pizzas, but 1000 Degrees also has a style called Roman, with a thicker, puffier crust.

For four of us, we got three 10-inch pizzas, plus cheesy breadsticks. That was more than enough for us. One pizza was enough for my two young kids, but adding the breadsticks insured they didn’t finish the entire pizza.

Feeding Kids at 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria
I loved the individualization of pizzas at 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, particularly since my kids can be rather picky. I’m pretty sure once they begin venturing out beyond pepperoni, they would be happy to add something crazy like macaroni and cheese to their pizza, but for now, they were content with their usual.

We’ve had Neapolitan style pizza before, and the kids have balked at eating pizza with the fresh mozzarella slices on it. Crazy, right? It’s so good when it’s fresh. You can get fresh mozzarella at 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, but if you’ve got kids like mine, you can also opt for the shredded variety to satisfy them.

Ordering at a Fast-Casual Pizzeria
1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria takes some inspiration from places like Subway, letting people have things the way they want them. That may mean standing at the counter and pointing out the toppings you want, deciding on which of the eight sauces you like, and deciding if you want just want type of cheese on top (or all eight). Then you have to figure out which crust you want (there’s a gluten-free option, too).

Omaha Location Deals
We dined at the Elkhorn location, the newest 1000 Degrees in the Metro area.

There is an Omaha location of 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria that’s been open since last May. You can head there for some great deals to save a little money. The biggie is the $6 Thursday deal. Any 10-inch pizza is $6, which is about 30% off the regular price.

1000 DEGREES PIZZA ranked number seven for fastest growing fast casual food franchise.

7. 1000 DEGREES NEAPOLITAN PIZZA

2016 U.S. SYSTEMWIDE SALES: $18.3 MILLION (UP 88.7%)
2016 UNITS: 20 (UP 53.8%)
CONCEPT: AN ENERGETIC PIZZA CHAIN OFFERING AUTHENTIC NEAPOLITAN PIZZAS

This fast-casual pizza starts with an “authentic Neapolitan dough recipe dating back over 100 years.” It’s this authenticity, and its use of 1000-degree ovens that cook pies in two minutes, that the chain names as differentiators. Customers can choose from a menu of specialty pizzas and classic Neapolitan preparations, or create their own recipe by selecting dough and choosing from more than 40 sauces, cheeses, meats and vegetables.

1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza set to open within days on Huebner

At 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, the name says it all: customizable pizza cooked at a scorching temperature that’s ready to eat in two minutes.

The first San Antonio location of the blossoming franchise is set to open Nov. 2 at 11224 Huebner Road in the City View Village Shopping Center, and there are plans for a bevy of giveaways that make the grand-opening noteworthy.

The first 10 customers in line when doors open at 11 a.m., along with 10 other randomly chosen customers that will be notified via specially marked boxes, will receive “free pizza for a year.” Owner Ashley Andres said the prizes will be administered as 52 coupons for free 10-inch pies.

Every customer who goes to 1000 Degrees on opening day will be served up a freebie 10-inch pizza and can enjoy live music throughout the day and a free photo booth from Studio Benton Photography.

It’s all about options at 1000 Degrees, where patrons can get a 10-inch or 14-inch pizza with seven different meat options, 12 types of veggies and eight varieties of cheeses and sauces, all assembled in front of your eyes. Pizza crusts are a classic Neapolitan style or a Roman style that is a thicker variety that’s rolled out into more of a flatbread.

There also is a specialty menu with pizzas such as the Trenton Tomato Pie, Smokey Pollo and the Hawaiian Fire, made with a spicy sriracha marinara. All of the 10-inch pizzas will be sold for $10 or less. There aren’t any limits on the toppings for “build your own” pies, although it’s not recommended to go beyond five.

“The biggest draw is that customers can get in and out during a lunch break with a freshly made pizza,” Andres said. “ Ninety percent of our business will be build-your-own. It’s appealing, because as people go through the assembly line, they may say ‘You know, I’ve never had salami on a pizza … let’s try that.”

Everything is done out in the open, from the dough-making process to the pizza assembly line to the 7,000-pound, gas-fired brick oven centerpiece, which can hold up to 13 pizzas at a time and cook at that 1,000 degree namesake average.

Other menu items will include breadsticks, build-your-own salads, cinnamon sticks and oven-roasted chicken wings, as well as five varieties of draft beer and white wine.

The Huebner location will be 2,510 square feet with seating for 68 inside the pizzeria and 20 outside in a shaded outdoor patio area. Business hours will run from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.

1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza Fires Up Downtown Boston Tomorrow

Boston’s warm front will continue this week with the opening of 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza near Government Center. The New Jersey-based chain officially debuts its newest location at 45 Court St. on Thursday, August 24, and to celebrate the opening, 1000 Degrees will offer free pizzas throughout the day, until the restaurant runs out.

This is the first Massachusetts location of the 1000 Degrees chain, and owner Ken Pasquariello plans to offer the first 10 people in line one free pizza each week for a year. 1000 Degrees operates with a counter service-style setup reminiscent of other fast-casual pizza spots like Blaze Pizza and Crush Pizza: Customers choose from dozens of toppings that get added to their pie, then wait for the pizza to cook for two minutes in a brick oven.

The menu at 1000 Degrees also includes bread sticks, salads, and wings. The restaurant will operate Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

1,000 Degrees Pizza Lands in Government Center

The latest in fast-fired, fast-casual pizza touches down in Government Center today. 1,000 Degrees, a Neapolitan-style brand in this red-hot category, is offering Boston a first taste of its pies with free pizza throughout the day, until supplies run out. The Court Street pizzeria is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m.

The customizable counter-service spot offers a choice of 30 different toppings, or signature pies like a classic margherita, buffalo chicken, and Hawaiian Fire, with Sriracha marinara, shredded mozzarella, Canadian bacon, banana peppers, and pineapple. Choose from a chewy, Neapolitan-style crust, or a thicker Roman style. The pizzas are fired up in a brick oven at—you guessed it—1,000 degrees. The menu also offers cheese-laden breadsticks, build-your-own salads, and fire-roasted wings in flavors like smokey bourbon barbecue, and sesame orange.

A New Jersey-based chain, 1,000 Degrees has 27 franchises in 20 states. Government Center is its first Massachusetts location, helmed by local owner Ken Pasquariello.

Fueled by homegrown spots like Area Four, Stoked, and Ciao!, 1,000 Degrees blazes onto a wood-fired pizza scene in Boston that has seen similar fast-casual concepts, like Blaze, Crush, and Nantucket-born Oath, proliferate with the promise of quick-cooking, artisan ’za. New contender, &pizza, literally sweetened the deal it proposed in Cambridge to vie for real estate in a neighborhood that’s sick of pizza.

1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza Opens in TCreek

Sunil Patel’s love for pizza has led him to open 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza in Turkey Creek.
Patel, franchise owner, held his store’s grand opening at its new location, 11071 Parkside Drive, between Noodles & Company and Watchdog Surveillance and
Spy Gear, Thursday, July 6. “I love pizza. It’s my favorite food. I always wanted to be in the food business and 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza is
something I’ve not seen elsewhere in a casual, fast-food place,” Patel said. “Here, you walk in and have your pizza in less
than five minutes. We cook our pizzas at 1000 degrees so it really cooks fast.” Customers can choose from its classic signature pizzas or build their own with
unlimited toppings, he added. The toppings are out front where customers can pick them easily; they can choose a 10-inch or 14-inch dough and watch as the pizza is being made.
What makes his pizzas Neapolitan? “It’s the flour,” Patel said. “I use 00 Neapolitan-style flour. It’s the finest flour that is available.” The process he uses to make the dough also makes a Neapolitan pizza. While the cooking is done quickly, he said the process to get the dough ready is not. “We offer Roman style, which is thicker, and a regular thin crust,” Patel said. Along with pizzas, 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza carries salads, wings and cheesy bread. The franchise, which is based out of New Jersey, is the 40th store nationwide but the only one in Tennessee, he said.
Patel chose to locate in Turkey Creek because “this was a hot spot, a lot of

Customize your Neapolitan pizza at new Turkey Creek restaurant

The words “free pizza” might be the tastiest words ever spoken.

Just ask the hundreds of Knoxvillians who rushed to Turkey Creek and stood in line for hours at 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza’s grand opening Thursday.

To celebrate its grand opening, the pizza shop offered one custom-order, 10-inch pizza for each customer.

Customers have more than 50 toppings to choose from to make a pizza that is truly theirs, Sunil Patel, owner of the Turkey Creek franchise, said.

‘Worth the wait’

Jennifer Scrugham, Stephanie Willis and Amy Fonseca arrived with nine kids right on time for their free pizza at 11 a.m. as doors opened.

They made it through the line and sat down with 12 pizzas an hour and a half late

“It was worth the wait,” Willis said.

“It was fun for the kids to get to customize their own pizza with as many toppings as they wanted,” Scrugham said.

After the grand opening, a 10-inch custom pizza will ring up for $7.95 with unlimited toppings. There is also a 14-inch pizza to customize, as well as specialty pizzas on the menu.

What makes it Neapolitan style?

The customization element of 1000 Degrees eatery is somewhat unique in the area, but it’s not unheard of. Patel said it’s the Neapolitan style of the pizza that changes Knoxville’s pizza game.

“It’s a whole process that starts with the flour,” he said. “Then you make the dough, and it cooks at more than 1000 degrees in two minutes.

“It’s crispy, and the taste is different.”

House-made recipes on the menu include the White Out pizza made with olive oil, mozzarella, Parmesan, mushrooms and garlic; the Hawaiian Fire made with spicy sriracha marinara, mozzerella, Canadian bacon, banana peppers and pineapple, the Smokey Pollo pizza made with roasted chicken, bacon, red onion, red peppers, pineapple, mozzarella, bleu cheese and barbecue sauce; and the Meatza made with marinara, mozzarella, pepperoni, bacon, Italian sausage and crumbled meatballs.

Build your own salads, break sticks and fire roasted chicken wings are also featured on the menu.
