Has authentic New York Style Pizza been a success in the Ozarks? You could say that. Rocco's Pizza has participated and won peoples Choice as best pizza at the Greater Ozarks Literacy Council's annual Pizza Bowl two years in a row! Rocco's competes against many national and local pizza shops in the Pizza Bowl, all for a great cause. There is always a long line at the Rocco's Pizza table during this event. John started getting a lot of questions about franchising Roccos. Finally John gave in and Rocco's Pizza now has four locations in Southwest Missouri. with more to come.
While John makes pizza and consults with current and future franchisees, Rocco works in his garden, travels back home to Sicily and even sneaks in and makes a pizza now and then and to yell at the dishwasher. Life is great at Rocco's Pizza and so is the food!
