TRADITIONAL PIZZAS

We’ve got it all: pepperoni, Italian meatballs, our own Italian sausage, pork sausage,
Canadian bacon, beef, salami, bacon, ham, mushrooms, tomatoes, black olives, spinach, red onions, banana and green bell peppers, jalapeños, fresh cilantro and basil. Create your own traditional style pizza with our freshly baked dough, homemade pizza sauce, fine cheeses that are superior cheeses and your choice of over 30 toppings.

Our dynamic Pizza World Logo enables us to bridge all boundaries – The “world” design within the pizza slice provides the power of communicating the vast styles of pizzas we offer. With this timeless and authentic logo we merge the exciting new concept of specialty pizza with the traditional pizzeria menu of pizza, subs and salads by drawing upon the traditionally Italian colors and the far-reaching globe which provides a variety of exciting visual images, all noticeably bearing common elements.

The gold, red and green colors are used sparingly in design to compliment the simple timeless design of the black or white logo providing a perfectly coherent design. Lines are simple and colors are comforting, allowing for store decoration to be cost effective and pleasantly inspiring while giving you
a vast array of options.
