WHO ARE WE?
We make our pizza dough fresh daily. And to make a true New York-style crust, you need the right flour. Our pizza sauce is made fresh, too, from our traditional family recipe formulated for Russo’s, with tomatoes grown in California and topped with 100% mozzarella cheese from a Wisconsin dairy farm. Real ingredients, nothing packaged.
Russo’s has a franchisee friendly organisational philosophy. Our mission statement is
"If It Isn't Fresh, Don't Serve It." - That’s the Russo Family Promise.
