1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza Heats Up Gilbert with New Location

New Option for Customizable Fast-Casual Pizza Offers Free 10” Pizza for All Guests, Plus Chance to Win Free Pizza for a Year

June 14, 2016 // Franchising.com // Gilbert, Ariz. – 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, a fast-casual American spin on authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza, is coming to SanTan Village with the opening of its Gilbert location on Thursday, June 16. The new restaurant is located at 2224 East Williams Field Road, Suite 112, next to Chipotle.

To celebrate the new restaurant, the first 10 guests through the doors on Thursday, June 16 at 11 a.m. will win free pizza for a year. In addition, all guests who visit the grand opening between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. and like 1000 Degrees on Facebook or follow on Instagram or Twitter will receive a free 10” pizza of their choice 

1000 Degrees serves beer and wine in addition to personalized, made-to-order authentic Neapolitan pizza, including a gluten-free option. Each pizza starts with fresh, never frozen, hand-tossed dough, created with authentic Neapolitan “00” flour and available in both a personal 10” and shareable 14” sizes. Guests then choose to create their own pizza or order one of the 1000 Degrees Favorites.

The Gilbert 1000 Degrees location is the second location to open in Arizona and is operated by Randy and Ban Kassab of Capital Pizza Ventures. The group owns an additional location in the Scottsdale 101 Shopping Center, and plans to open a third location within the next year.  

“Ban and I look forward to opening our doors in SanTan Village and continuing to share our love for pizza with the metro Phoenix area,” said Randy Kassab.

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 the Phoenix area with the opening of our second location in Arizona,” 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 currently has more than 15 domestic restaurants open and one international location in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 1000 Degrees is growing at a rapid pace, estimating it will open more than 80 units by the end of this year, and projecting an additional 170 units by 2017.

1000 Degrees in Gilbert is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. To learn more about 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza or to be part of its daily free pizza contests, please visit www.facebook.com/1000degreesgilbert/ or call (480) 398-7141.
