1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza, a fast-casual American spin on authentic, hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza, is coming to the Deptford Mall in Deptford Township, New Jersey. The new restaurant will host its grand opening on Friday, January 8 and is located in the mall at 1750 Deptford Center Road on Level 2 between Macy’s and Sears.
To celebrate the new restaurant, the first 10 guests through the doors on Friday, January 8 at 10 a.m. will win free pizza for a year. In addition, all guests who visit the grand opening between 10 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. and like 1000 Degrees on Facebook or follow on Instagram or Twitter will receive a free 10-inch pizza of their choice.
1000 Degrees serves personalized, made-to-order authentic Neapolitan pizza. Each pizza starts with fresh, never frozen, hand-tossed dough, created with authentic Neapolitan “00” flour and available in both a personal 10-inch and sharable 14-inch sizes. Guests then choose to create their own pizza or order one of the 1000 Degrees Favorites.
1000 Degrees Pizza of Deptford Mall is the ninth location in New Jersey and is owned by brothers Hai and Jeff Lin of 1000 Degrees of Deptford, New Jersey LLC. The restaurant group plans to develop more locations in New Jersey and is set to open its second location on the Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, Virginia, early 2016.
“Jeff and I look forward to opening our doors in Deptford and continuing to share our love for pizza with the community,” Hai says.
Customizing a 1000 Degrees pizza is truly a unique experience, as guests can choose to top theirs with any of the more than 50 high quality cheeses, sauces, meats, vegetables, and other toppings all for one flat price. While choosing their toppings, customers are guided down an assembly line of pizza consultants to create a pizza that is totally unique to them.
Outside of the build your own option, there are more than 12 varieties of specialty pizzas including favorites like The Smokey Pollo, also known as Barbecue Bourbon Chicken, which features sweet and smoky bourbon barbecue sauce, roasted chicken, red onion, pineapple, shredded Grande brand Mozzarella and Blue cheeses, and The Philly, which is a cheese steak pizza topped with thinly sliced rib-eye, caramelized Spanish onions, balsamic glaze, shredded Grande brand Mozzarella and Provolone cheeses. Pizzas are then fired to perfection at 1000 degrees in a custom, handmade, revolving Neapolitan brick oven in just two minutes.
“1000 Degrees is on fire and we’re certainly heating up New Jersey with the opening of our ninth location,” says 1000 Degrees CEO and Founder Brian Petruzzi. “I’m confident that we serve the best hand-tossed Neapolitan pizza in the area and provide an unparalleled customer experience that will keep people coming back for more.”
Unlike traditional Neapolitan pizza, which has a slightly undercooked center and requires a fork and knife to eat, 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizza has fused this classic style with American flare. The result is a thin crust pizza that maintains the light and airy appeal of a Neapolitan style pizza.
