You just know we couldn’t ignore National Pizza Week here at Russo’s. While we have no trouble celebrating the glory of authentic Italian pizza any time of the year, it’s hard to pass up a fun commemoration like this.

It’s time to check out a few reasons to grab a pizza with us during National Pizza Week: January 14th through 20th.

Why National Pizza Week?

Let’s be honest . . . the answer is easy and obvious: pizza is one of the most wonderful foods for almost any lunch or dinner purpose, alone or with others. This is perhaps even more true when it’s cold and you don’t want to get up and cook in January.

Pizza, as we know it, has only been in the United States since about the turn of the 20th century. Like many other staple foods in America, it became popular when American GIs brought their massive enthusiasm for it back from Italy after being stationed there. It’s become available in many styles and varieties, but king among them, is the heralded NY-style pizza, which we serve at Russo’s. 

How Do You Celebrate National Pizza Week with Russo’s?

This is another easy question to answer because pizza is right in our wheelhouse. Perhaps the best way to celebrate pizza in style would be to try a new specialty selection you’ve never had previously. We have no shortage of menu options.

Many Other Authentic Italian Meals at Russo’s New York Pizzeria

Those are just a few of the ways you can indulge in a nice slice with us. Don’t forget that we also offer dozens of other entrees and appetizers, ranging from Baked Ziti and Eggplant Parmesan to Stromboli Calzones and Chicken Tuscan Sandwiches. Even the pickiest eaters will find something fantastic on our extensive dine-in or delivery menus.

Whether it’s pizza, pasta, calzones, salads, or sweet desserts, we have every legitimate Italian favorite at Russo’s New York Pizzeria. If you’re new to what we offer, then make National Pizza Week a reason to visit one of our many franchise locations. You won’t regret it.

Are you tired of the same uninspiring catering options available in your area?

While lots of restaurants promise big things with their catering menus, not all of them deliver. We LITERALLY DELIVER a tremendous selection of pizzas, pastas, calzones, and other authentic NY-style Italian foods. Russo’s New York Pizzeria, operating in several American and international locations, offers you the chance to create an unforgettable meal experience the next time you host any major event.

Here’s how it all works with Russo’s Catering . . .

Russo’s One-of-a-Kind Pizzeria Catering Menu

We must start with the menu itself because our magnificent Italian recipes are the centerpiece of it all. Here’s just a small sample of the tasty entrée items Chef Russo has mastered to perfection.

Service Components of Russo’s Catering

The next spectacular advantage to Russo’s catering is the convenience factor. Instead of cooking your own food (for perhaps dozens of guests), our team can deliver, prepare, monitor, and clean up everything for you. All you have to do is let us know what you want, give us a little “heads up” time to prepare, and let us handle the rest.

Someone from one of our Russo’s locations will gather your information and service request, help you hammer out the details (expected guests, timing, etc.), and deliver everything to your address. This could be at your residential home, workplace, a convention center, country club ballroom, or wherever else you need. Plus, our folks WILL arrive on time and process everything accurately.

What Events Can We Cater?

You can hire Russo’s for an array of fun and memorable events.

So, we hope this sheds some light on the many lucrative ways Russo’s New York Pizzeria can contribute to an unforgettable catered event. This works terrifically for small family gatherings, lavish corporate functions, and everything in between. If you’d like to learn more about service rates and all the other details, then contact a Russo's location near you for personalized assistance.

On any given night, when you decide to order out, you’re more than likely confronted by a wide range of choices, and this list tends to get longer each and every year. Despite this, pizza has an undeniable staying power and consistency that makes it ideal for just about any situation or circumstance. Now, here’s something you might not have given much thought to. Are there types of pizzas that are best used for certain occasions more than others? Today, we’re going to find out. 

The Busy Work Week and Hectic Weekends 

Giant Pizza from Russo's

Life has a tendency not to slow down, despite our wishes that it sometimes would. A busy week or weekend means that taking the time for preparation, cooking, and clean-up can sometimes be next to non-existent. This is when ordering pizza becomes the ideal solution to this conundrum. Depending on the mouths that need to be fed, having a few options to choose from might be ideal. If you’re on a budget, one pizza with veggies and another with meat will satisfy the wants of just about everyone at the table. 

Business Meetings 

We’ve all been there. An important deadline is due, and it’s crunch time. You’ve assembled the best members of your team to accomplish the impossible in a short amount of time. Naturally, some substances are needed to power through that home stretch. Even if it's not crunch time and you’re simply meeting up to look over quarterly earnings, some pizza will come to be one of the best presentations for the other board members. We recommend a specialty pizza that’s unique, as this reinforces the diversity of your workforce. 

Children’s Parties  

There’s no denying that children are among the most finicky of eaters, and pleasing all of them can sometimes come off as an impossible task. A recent survey attested that the favorite option for children and teenagers is cheese pizza. It’s quick, convenient, and always a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. The runner-up in this survey was pepperoni. Kids can't get enough of that mild, spicy kick. 

Picnics and Luncheons 

These events can be a little bit trickier. Because your guests will have multiple tastes, the ideal solution is multiple pizzas. One of the best ways to prepare for these large social gatherings is to survey their guests as to what they like. 

Russo’s New York Pizzeria 

No matter what the situation might entail, there’s a pizza at Russo’s that can make you a modern mealtime hero. Visit a location near you today!

Delivery service could be the most optimal way to enjoy hot, fresh, and delicious pizza with the fewest hassles possible. It’s hard to beat the ability to order food from your phone, have someone else prepare it, deliver it, and not even have to lift a finger. Check out these fantastic reasons to consider Russo’s for fast and reliable pizza delivery.

The Best Reasons to Choose Russo’s for Pizza Delivery

Fresh & Hot Pizza (Right Away) - Not all delivery services are created equally. However, with our pizza franchises, we place a heavy emphasis on ensuring your pizza arrives hot and ready to eat. Russo’s invests lots of money and effort into our responsive ordering system, meaning you shouldn’t encounter long wait times or lukewarm food.

Save Gas Money - It’s nice to avoid getting in a car, before fighting through traffic to get a bite to eat. Delivery service can save you a headache and some gas money. Plus, there are plenty of promotional offers and discounts that further incentivize it.

No Waiting in Line - One of the consistent complaints from food patrons, all across the industry, is the frustration of having to wait in line. We serve business professionals, school students, busy parents, and many other folks who can’t afford to wait forever. Again, the benefit of delivery is that you can place an order in advance with the confidence that it will arrive when you’re ready for lunch or dinner.

A Bunch of Variety - The Russo’s menu has more than a couple dozen specialty pizzas, along with the rest of our authentic Italian entrees. So, ordering pizza delivery isn’t like it was in the old days when you had to settle on a handful of options. Now you can try everything from Doppio Pepperoni or Truffle Mushroom to Hawaiian Pizza or Sausage & Ricotta (and much more).

Terrific for Party Planning - It’s really hard to select food for a large group of people, especially if you have picky eaters. Pizza delivery, however, offers several meal solutions, anytime you’re gathering friends and family together for any occasion. You can also save time not having to cook and prepare food, allowing you more time to plan the rest of your party.

Then, of course, it’s also possible for us to deliver even more service whenever you hire us for catering. It’s a wonderful way to host your next birthday party, football gameday, family reunion, or any other event. We bring you pizza, pasta, calzones, and everything from our authentic Italian menu, complete with all the setup, hosting, and cleanup service.

Russo’s New York Pizzeria offers first-rate hospitality in everything we do, which includes delivery, catering, fast-casual takeout, and dining-in service. Contact us anytime to learn how we help you enjoy a terrific meal with us.

What’s the best food to pair with authentic New York-style pizza?

Pasta, of course!

That almost goes without saying because there are so many ways to configure mouth-watering combinations of the two. This often involves pairing the sauces and seasonings of both to find that perfect blend of complementarity. So, what are the best ways to mix pizza and pasta when you visit Russo’s?

How to Combine Pasta with Your Pizza Like a Pro

Balance Heavy & Light Options - Nothing’s more overwhelming than selecting too many heavy entrees for one meal. Lasagna and Baked Ziti are nothing short of amazing, but you might not want to have them with meat lover’s pizza (unless you’re REALLY hungry). Most dining patrons will take a light pasta (maybe shrimp scampi) and combine it with a compatible pizza (perhaps Truffle Mushroom). There are no hardline rules, however.

Do You Like Sweet, Spicy, or Both? - For making pizza or pasta, there is an array of sweeter or spicier sauces and other ingredients to consider. So, if you’re ordering both entrees, keep in mind your preferences for sweet/spicy dishes. If you’re looking for a more potent pasta to mix with Doppio Pepperoni (which has jalapenos), we recommend the Shrimp Fra Diavolo. That pasta utilizes the potent hot chili marinara sauce, a popular selection among our patrons who enjoy a little kick.

It’s Not Really “Mixing” Per se - We don’t recommend taking a bite of pizza and pasta simultaneously. That’s not the best way to savor the flavors. It’s not a mixture or concoction you’re trying to make. You shouldn’t try to force together wildly different ingredients. It makes more sense to select items that won’t sour your palate with unusual after-tastes.

Plenty of Sauces to Consider

Finally, don’t forget to master your sauces before visiting an Italian restaurant. There are several, but some of the common favorites are marinara sauce, meat sauce, pesto sauce, EVOO garlic sauce, and ricotta cheese sauce. Russo’s even offers a special Chianti-braised meat sauce with our Spaghetti w/ Meatballs or Italian Sausage. Every food enthusiast has to explore these via trial-and-error to discover your favorites.

Visit Russo’s to Try Dozens of Pizza/Pasta Combinations

We invite you to explore many more pizzas and pastas on our main dining menu. Chef Russo is the master innovator behind countless Italian dishes, giving you limitless variety. Our pizzas use only the best Wisconsin mozzarella, Roma tomatoes, fresh garlic, and other premium ingredients.

Russo’s New York Pizzeria is a franchise restaurant chain, specializing in first-class, old-world Italian entrees. This includes pizza, pasta, calzones, and much more. Contact us anytime to learn more about anything on our menu, and where to find the nearest Russo’s.
