The customizable fast-casual pizza brand recently rolled out its authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza in Boston. The restaurant opened on Thursday, August 24 at 45 Court Street, signifying the first 1000 Degrees Pizzeria in all of Massachusetts and joining the 27 locations based nationwide.
“There is a tremendous amount of excitement to introduce the people of Boston to true, classic Neapolitan pizza,” says Ken Pasquariello, owner of 1000 Degrees in Boston. “From our authentic Neapolitan flavors to the incredible array of toppings, homemade sauces and crust options, I know that 1000 Degrees is going to fan the flames of Boston’s cravings for a truly one-of-a-kind pizza experience.”
Situated at Government Center and across the street from Oceanaire, Boston’s 1000 Degrees restaurant is conveniently located for local workforce lunch crowds, families and couples to gather for lunch and dinner.
Originating in Galloway, New Jersey, 1000 Degrees is renowned for its classic Neapolitan pizzas fired to perfection at 1000 degrees in a custom, handmade, revolving Neapolitan brick oven. With the option to limitlessly top each pie with more than 50 fresh ingredients, guests can completely customize each pizza to satisfy their every craving.
The menu features a variety of options, such as the White Out (with extra virgin olive oil, shredded mozzarella, parmesan, fresh mushrooms and garlic, the Smokey Pollo (featuring Sweet and Smokey Bourbon Barbeque Sauce, roasted chicken, bacon, red onion, red peppers, pineapple, shredded mozzarella and blue cheese) and the Meatza (with marinara, mozzarella, pepperoni, bacon, Italian sausage and crumbled meatballs). Additionally, the brand offers two signature crust options: classic, thin-crust Neapolitan and The Roman, which is twice the thickness of traditional Neapolitan and oval in shape.
“Ken is exactly the type of franchisee that we were looking for in Boston,” says Brian Petruzzi, CEO and founder of 1000 Degrees. “He’s an important part of the 1000 Degrees family, and we look forward to seeing him grow his business in Boston.”
