All signs point to Pizza Rock opening soon, soon, soon. On Friday, the pizza joint from 11-time World Pizza Champion Tony Gemignani put up its flashy new sign. The restaurant is part of the Downtown Grand's renovations, taking over the former Celebrity Theater in Downtown 3rd.
While Pizza Rock gives no word on when it will open, already highlights of the menu are out, including a variety of Italian and American pizza styles, all cooked in one of the restaurant's four different ovens. Highlights include Gemignani's award-winning pizzas such as the Sicilian-style Burratina Di Margherita with burrata cheese, cherry tomatoes tossed with basil, extra virgin olive oil and balsamic reduction, which won the Gold Cup Pizza Championships Leece, Italy; Napoletana-style Margherita with San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella Fior de Latte, basil, extra virgin olive oil and sea salt, which won the World Pizza Cup Naples, Italy; and Cal Italia with asiago, mozzarella, imported Gorgonzola, sweet fig preserve, Prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano-Reggiano and balsamic reduction, which won the Gold Medal in Food Network Pizza Champions Challenge. Heady competition in the pizza market indeed.
