This Ohio pizzeria is locally owned and operated and proud of it! It’s hard to argue with the insanity behind the company’s “Crazy Mondays” –– a medium 13-inch carryout pepperoni pizza is just $4.99. Still, there’s more to the menu besides traditional pies. We love the signature specialty offerings, including the Chicken Teriyaki (grilled chicken, onions, tomatoes and blended cheeses on a teriyaki sauce) and the BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, blended cheeses and mayonnaise on a garlic butter sauce). Way to think outside the box!

Cicero’s Pizza had a deep and storied history that began in 1968 in Niagara Falls, New York. When then owner Nunzio Cicero moved to Cupertino, California, he was joined by family and watched the area transition from agricultural to the Silicon Valley. Although Cicero closed shop in 1991 and passed away soon after, his family re-opened the following year in a new location in San Jose. Today, Cicero’s legacy continues with thin and crispy pizza topped with fresh ingredients in a family-friendly atmosphere. Long live Cicero!
