Our Pizzerias
Our pizzeria's have an ambiance of the classic New York mom and pop pizzeria of days gone by with a modern twist.  While serving authentic New York style pizza by the pie, we have also kept the tradition of the selling pizza by the slice.
We understand that the majority of the world has never experienced a true New York pizzeria, from the aroma of fresh baked pizza being cooked in a brick oven to the interaction of the pie chef's dough tossing skills.

Our store design allows us to enhance the customers visit by showcasing the pizza making process from start to finish.  We begin with crafting our proprietary flour blend into our signature pizza dough throughout the day. Then we showcase the talent of our pie chefs at the pizza make station, which is located in the view of the customers.  They can observe the pie chef hand forming, tossing the fresh dough into the air and putting the fresh toppings on their pizza.

After the show it comes down to the quality of the product.  We only serve authentic New York style pizza, and delicious high quality Italian menu items using traditional family recipes.

Company History
NYPD Pizza was established in 1996 by a native New Yorker who noticed an absence of authentic New York style pizza while traveling around the United States and beyond.  CEO & Founder Paul Russo decided to seize the opportunity and create the first truly authentic New York style pizza franchise.

What We've Been Doing
Over the past 18 years we have refined our restaurant operations, cultivated the franchise system and developed key relationships that have allowed us to create & distribute our proprietary products on a worldwide scale.  At the same, time we maintain the authenticity & consistency of our award winning New York style pizza and Italian fare.

We are continually looking at ways to improve our customers experience by staying current in the ever changing world of restaurants while remaining true to our mission of providing authentic New York pizza to the world.  NYPD Pizza has proven that we can deliver a consistent New York style pizza to anywhere on the globe.

The Importance of a Powerful Logo
One of our most powerful marketing tools is the NYPD Pizza logo.  Instantly recognizable and distinct, it is unmistakably evocative of New York City.  This reaction greatly strengthens the authenticity of the brand and the ties to its roots in New York City, the birthplace of modern pizza.  We are the only official NYPD Pizza franchise in the world and have use of our logo mark in 34 countries worldwide!
