Who doesn’t love pizza?! Big Daddy’s Pizzeria serves up piping hot pies that are baked to golden brown perfection inside a 550-degree, wood-fired flame brick oven! Big Daddy’s “pizzeoli” makes homemade, handcrafted dough that is pulled until it reaches the perfect consistency. Next, they add one of their homemade sauces before topping it off with fresh ingredients. This Neapolitan style pizza features a crispy crust and is full of incredible flavors!
