Pizza Night

*This story is also found on Bobcat Bucket List.

There is no need to settle for Pizza Hut or Papa Johns on a Friday night when Della Zona offers some of the best pizza in town.

This one night a week restaurant lures in students and locals alike and satisfies a craving that you didn’t even know you had.

Meaning “from the region” in Italian, Della Zona stays true to its name.

According to head baker, Bob O’Neil,Snowville Creamery milk is used to make their own mozzarella cheese and Shade River organic tomatoes to make the marinara.

“It’s not what you would expect or what you would get from any other pizza place in town, in Ohio or most of the United States,” he said.

Almost all ingredients used at Della Zona are local.

According to O’Neil, he even freezes or brines the out-of-season ingredients, like peppers, to use throughout the year.

The seasonal specialties change every week and are definitely the “must try” items on the menu no matter what they are. There are always three options and each one is as good as the next.

“People treat this as a specialty,” O’Neil said. “They just don’t miss Friday night.”

Sure getting out to East State does mean getting off the couch, but the people at Della Zona are warm and welcoming and will treat you like family.

If you really do just want to stay in and have a night alone, you can always order the pizzas for carry-out.

Because the store is only open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays it can get pretty busy, but just bring a bottle of your favorite wine (it is BYOB) a few good friends and treat yourself to the crostini while you wait.

“People treat this as a specialty,” O’Neil said. “They just don’t miss Friday night.”

O’Neil promises that it is well worth the short wait.

“Go for a walk in the neighborhood and when you come back we’ll have your table ready for you.”
