Blog : 900 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, Still Going Strong and Going Green

By Katie | Oct 1, 2014 | in

The Green Alliance is happy to announce that 900 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria has opted to join the GA for another year. With two locations, in Manchester and Epping, 900 Degrees is making the restaurant industry greener, a feat that is remarkable in itself. 

900 Degrees owner, Priscilla Lane-Rondeau has said that it’s not just the restaurant's desire to be green that has led to their success, but that the customers are also looking for that kind of quality in their food. Lane-Rondeau has even said that she once had a customer call to ask if they used genetically modified crops in any of their ingredients. The support is clear; with six years of awards under their belts and a second restaurant opening in 2013, the passion for producing great food keeps the customers coming back for more.

The wood-fired pizzas go back to the basics, established in Naples hundreds of years ago. The brick ovens are run using wood (which also doubles to heat the restaurant in the cooler months), which gives an incredible flavor and texture that is not as easily achieved with a conventional oven. Flour is imported from Italy and contains no GMOs nor processed foods, which not only gives great, authentic flavor but is also nicer to those with gluten sensitivities.

In going green, 900 Degrees not only ensures that they use local, farm-grown ingredients as much as possible, but has made energy efficiency a focal point in operating their restaurants. LED lighting, biodegradable to-go containers, and educating employees are just a few of the many ways that 900 Degrees has gone green. Lane-Rondeau has instilled her green initiatives into the business model, which is just another way this pizzeria is far and above the norm.

Even further, 900 Degrees separates itself from the competition by creating an atmosphere that is elegant, warm and inviting. Most people picture cheap, plastic silverware, the checkered table clothes, and paper plates when they think of pizzerias. Both 900 Degrees locations, however, take pride in the presentation.

By continuing to go above and beyond, 900 Degrees has made itself a formidable establishment across New Hampshire. From its green practices, to using the finest ingredients, to creating an atmosphere that does not feel cheap, 900 Degrees shows no signs of slowing down.
