About Sarpino's Pizzeria
Sarpino's founder, Gerry Koutougos, took his family on a vacation to Europe in 1999. While touring the Italian countryside, they discovered a small, secluded family restaurant run by an elderly local woman named Sarpina. Gerry was so overwhelmed by how wonderful Sarpina's food tasted, that he volunteered to spend 2 weeks working, for free, as an assistant in Sarpina's kitchen. There he learned the secrets of authentic Italian cooking, which are used in Sarpino's restaurants to this day.Making a great pizza doesn't just happen. It requires having a great crust, flavorful sauce, rich and creamy cheese, and the tasty toppings. At Sarpino's we've put these all together to make a truly outstanding pizza.At Sarpino's we make our dough fresh everyday using our own special recipe. We start with a high-gluten flour to help us make the quality dough we need to achieve that perfect pizza that holds its shape once it's baked. This way, we get a crust that is light and airy, yet still with a delicate crunch.Once you have a great pizza crust, you need to top it off with an equally great sauce. We use the sweetest tomatoes available. We then blend the tomato sauce with our own special spices - an authentic spice mix that was taught to us back in Italy. You'll taste the herbs and spices with every bite of our pizza, and our sauce is so good that we give it as a side dip with every pizza.Of course, it wouldn't be a pizza without cheese. Sarpino's uses 100% real cheese. We shred our cheese and then pile it on our pizzas - and we're not shy about giving you a nice, full portion.And, if that isn't enough to satisfy your taste buds, we'll toss on some of our finest toppings. With over 30 toppings to choose from, it's easy to get the pizza you want, just the way you like it.At Sarpino's, we take pride in knowing exactly what it takes to make you an exceptional pizza every time.
