L ooking for a good pizza? GO! Magazine readers decided Pizza Mondo is the best joint for a slice or a whole pie.
Pizza Mondo opened its doors 21 years ago and is owned by John Picarazzi, Cliff Triplett and Steve Koch.
“I think our success hinges on the quality of our people and the quality of our products. Our goal is to get it right every time,” Picarazzi said. “Sometimes that’s hard to do out of a little pizza shop, and we might not get it right every time, but we certainly try.”
The sole shop is located in downtown Bend. Every pizza pushed over the counter or delivered via driver is made from scratch.
Picarazzi grew up working in a bakery owned by his parents. His dad, Dominick, “helped us with our pizza dough recipe.”
Pizza Mondo offers a large variety of pizzas, but the most popular is pepperoni.
“Pepperoni outpaces all other pizzas whether it’s by the slice or the whole pizza,” Picarazzi said.
