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 franchise opens in Katy, Texas
1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, a fast-casual American spin on authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza, came to the Katy area on Feb. 9. The new restaurant is located at 24600 Katy Freeway, next to the Field & Stream and Bed Bath and Beyond.
1000 Degrees serves personalized, made-to-order Neapolitan pizza. Each pizza starts with fresh, never frozen, hand-tossed dough, created with Neapolitan flour and available in both a personal 10-inch and sharable 14-inch sizes. Guests then choose to create their own pizza or order one of the 1000 Degrees Favorites.
The Katy 1000 Degrees location is the third in the greater Houston area, and is owned and operated by local entrepreneur John Bock of Bock Restaurants LLC, along with his wife, Brenda, and friends Travis and Elizabeth Masterson.
Bock has worked in the restaurant industry for 22 and currently works in real estate, while his wife Brenda teaches in the Early Childhood Autism program in the Katy Independent School District. Travis is a disabled veteran of the U.S. Army.
Robert Rankin, an experienced restaurant manager in the area, will step in as director of operations.
As longtime residents of the Katy area, the entrepreneurs were drawn to the brand’s authenticity, proprietary oven and devotion to serving fresh, high-quality ingredients. The entrepreneurial team is set to open two more 1000 Degrees locations in Sugar Land and Spring later this year.
The best pizza place Katy, Texas has to offer is now open!
“We’re thrilled to open our first 1000 Degrees pizza franchise location in our hometown of Katy. We want to give back to this great community and we look forward to opening our doors and sharing our love for premium fast-casual pizza with the residents of Katy,” said Bock.
Customers can choose to top their pizzas with any of the more than 35 cheeses, sauces, meats, vegetables and other toppings all for one flat price. While choosing their toppings, customers are guided down an assembly line of pizza consultants to create their pizza. 1000 Degrees Katy also offers customers the option to BYOB.
Outside of the build your own option, there are more than 12 varieties of specialty pizzas including favorites like The Smokey Pollo, also known as Barbecue Bourbon Chicken, which features sweet and smoky bourbon barbecue sauce, roasted chicken, red onion, pineapple, shredded Grande brand mozzarella and blue cheeses, and The Philly, which is a cheesesteak pizza topped with thinly sliced rib-eye, caramelized Spanish onions, balsamic glaze, shredded Grande brand mozzarella and provolone cheeses. Pizzas are then fired at 1000 degrees in a custom, handmade, revolving Neapolitan brick oven in just two minutes.
“We’re thrilled to further expand our brand throughout Texas,” said 1000 Degrees CEO/founder Brian Petruzzi.
Unlike traditional Neapolitan pizza which has a slightly undercooked center and requires a fork and knife to eat, 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza has fused this classic style with an American flare. The result is a thin crust pizza that maintains the light and airy appeal of a Neapolitan-style pizza.
1000 Degrees Katy is open Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. To learn more about 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza or to be part of its daily free pizza contests, visit www.facebook.com/1000-Degrees-Neapolitan-Pizzeria-of-Katy or call 281-547-1087.
