1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, a fast-casual American spin on authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza, is coming to the Market Place at Cherry Hill. The new restaurant will host its grand opening on Thursday, October 8 and is located at 2000 Marlton Pike West in Cherry Hill, NJ.
In celebration of the new restaurant, the first 10 guests through the doors at 11 a.m. will win free pizza for a year. Additionally, all guests that visit on Thursday, October 8 who like 1000 Degrees on Facebook, follow on Instagram or Twitter will receive a free 10” pizza of their choice.
1000 Degrees serves personalized, made-to-order authentic Neapolitan pizza. Each pizza starts with fresh, never frozen, hand-tossed dough, created with authentic Neapolitan “00” flour and available in both a personal 10” and sharable 14” sizes. Guests then choose to create their own pizza or order one of the 1000 Degrees Favorites.
Customizing a 1000 Degrees pizza is truly a unique experience, as guests can choose to top theirs with any of the more than 50 high quality 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 a pizza that is totally unique to them.
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 smokey bourbon barbecue sauce, roasted chicken, red onion, pineapple, shredded Grande brand mozzarella and blue cheeses and The Philly which is a cheese steak pizza topped with thinly sliced rib-eye, caramelized Spanish onions, balsamic glaze, shredded Grande brand mozzarella and provolone cheeses. Pizzas are then fired to perfection at 1000 degrees in a custom, handmade, revolving Neapolitan brick oven in just two minutes.
“1000 Degrees is on fire and we’re certainly heating up Camden County residents with the opening of our second restaurant along Route 70,” said 1000 Degrees CEO and Founder Brian Petruzzi. “Personally growing up in the area, I’m confident that we serve the best hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza around and provide an unparalleled customer experience that will keep people coming back for more.”
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 American flare. The result is a thin crust pizza that maintains the light and airy appeal of a Neapolitan style pizza.
South Jersey entrepreneur and 1000 Degrees CEO and Founder Brian Petruzzi grew up in Bellmawr, New Jersey and was inspired by his Italian heritage to develop a fast-casual pizza concept that fuses the Neapolitan style with the familiarity of New York style pizza. 1000 Degrees pizza captures American appeal and old world Neapolitan flavor. The company will have 80 U.S. locations open by the end of next year, as well as the first international store in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
