I LOVE pizza so much that I drove 25 miles from my house to get a free 10 inch pizza from 1000 Degrees, the new pizzeria in Fernandina. I thought it was pretty generous of them to offer up free eats to all of their customers during their Grand Opening! It was totally worth the drive because the pizza was delicious! It’s Neapolitan (Roman)- style pizza and it’s like a subway for pizza. You can add as many toppings as you want!
Several restaurants with this concept have popped up over the last few years and I have to admit this is one of the better ones I’ve tried.
I love that they have outdoor and indoor seating. It’s definitely perfect to have the outdoor option for the warmer months.
Of course it’s a brand new restaurant and everything was spick and span as to be expected. I loved the exposed ceilings! It added nicely to the charm of the pizzeria. They also had great music playing through out the restaurant. I can’t forget to mention the self-serve beer and wine wall. I didn’t get to indulge this particular day, but boy, oh boy, I will make it a point to do so next time around.
But… on to the food! According to the staff, the 1000 degree oven is from Italy and is equipped to cook your pizza, completely, with just two turns around which takes approximately 2 minutes!
I was a little skeptical as to whether my pizza would be cooked all the way through with just two rotations because I’ve had to request my pizza stay in ovens longer at similar restaurants. I am pleased to share that my pizza was cooked to perfection within those two minutes.
I really enjoyed the pizza. It was very flavorful and the cheese was perfectly melty and gooey! I could’ve very well ate the entire thing in one sitting but exercised some restraint in an effort to maintain my girlish figure. I was definitely pleased and was happy to learn that they will making their appearance in different areas around Jacksonville this year so be on a look out!
What are your favorite pizza toppings?
As always, thanks for stopping by!
