New Option for Customizable Fast-Casual Pizza Makes Debut in Roseville

1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, a fast-casual American spin on authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza, opened its first Michigan location in Roseville on Thursday, Nov. 5.

“1000 Degrees is on fire and we’re certainly heating up Macomb County with the opening of our first Michigan location,” said 1000 Degrees CEO and Founder Brian Petruzzi.

1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, a fast-casual American spin on authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza, opened its first Michigan location in Roseville on Thursday, Nov. 5. The new restaurant is located at 32427 Gratiot Avenue, on the corner of 14 Mile and Gratiot Avenue in front of the Macomb Mall.

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.

The Roseville 1000 Degrees is the first location in Michigan and will be operated by restaurant group Capital Pizza Ventures. The group plans to develop up to three locations in Michigan and an additional three in Arizona over the next 12 months, with hopes of opening more in the following months.

“We saw Detroit as a relatively untapped market for authentic Neapolitan-style pizza,” said franchise partner Rudy Sawa of Capital Pizza Ventures. “We’re happy to have opened our doors to the community and love sharing our passion for pizza with Macomb residents.”

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 Macomb County with the opening of our first Michigan location,” said 1000 Degrees CEO and Founder Brian Petruzzi. “I’m confident that we serve the best hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza in the area 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.

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.

1000 Degrees in Roseville is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. To learn more about 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza or to be part of its daily free pizza contests, please visit http://www.facebook.com/1000DegreesPizzaRoseville or call (586) 296-3010.
