Owner Priscilla Lane-Rondeau is dedicated to providing her customers with the best wood-fired pizza around while simultaneously promoting green business practices and giving back to her local community. Using fresh, organic ingredients when possible and a wood fire oven that cooks Neapolitan-style pizza at an average temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit, 900 Degrees serves pizza prepared in the traditional style native to Naples, Italy. In addition to their award-winning pizza, the menu also boasts mouth-watering appetizers, soups, sandwiches, entrees and desserts.
