When searching for a large pizza, you probably don’t want the world’s largest pie on record. That pie covered a whopping 14,000 square feet. While this may be one for the history books, you’re just looking for a delicious pizza to feed your family. This is when many people in North Carolina want a slice of Mario’s big pizza.
Mario’s Pizza began decades ago in an Italian community in Brooklyn, New York. Growing up in a tight-knit American ethnic community wasn’t all that different from living in Italy. It was one of these areas where brothers Vinny, Tony, and Mario grew up.
In 1981, the brothers decided to take their culinary skills and traditional family recipes to the shores of North Carolina. They opened two pizzerias, one in Jacksonville and the other in Havelock. A few years later, the brothers moved to the Triad and opened an Italian restaurant in Winston-Salem.
As word spread of their delicious pizza over the years, the brothers continued to expand. Today, you’ll find Mario’s Pizza in 9 locations throughout the Triad:
Moreover, the brothers also started another chain serving the same great food. Tony’s Pizza has 6 locations throughout the greater Charlotte area:
America’s love affair with pizza began when the first pizzeria opened in 1905 in Manhattan. Over the years, the combination of a thin, crispy crust, tangy tomato sauce, and melted cheese became a hit. While other styles have developed, NY style pizza remains the most popular.
Beginning with the dough, we train our chefs the correct procedure for kneading, proofing, and hand tossing. Each step is crucial to achieve the thin, crispy crust you expect. Of course, our chefs understand the importance of baking time and temperature too.
Next, we spread a layer of our homemade tomato sauce atop the crust. We use an old traditional family recipe handed down through generations. It has the right balance of texture, sweetness, and acidity, to complement the other ingredients.
Some other styles of pizza may use provolone, white cheddar, Swiss, or a blend of cheeses. However, for NY style, there’s only one kind, low-moisture mozzarella. This cheese melts nicely with just the right amount of stretch.
Typically, traditional NY style pizza has cheese and perhaps pepperoni toppings. However, we understand the desire to customize pizza with your favorite meats and vegetables. Thus, we offer a whopping 32 options to put on your pizza.
Traditionally, Italian chefs make NY style pizza huge. Usually, pies are 18-20 inches in diameter. Moreover, a slice of pizza is so big that you need to fold a slice in half to eat it.
Mario’s big pizza is a gigantic 24 inches in diameter. However, we also make pies in smaller 10, 15, 17, and 19-inch sizes. We cut our huge 24-inch pie into 12 slices while all our other pies come in 8 slices.

Pizza ranks as the second most popular fast food in America behind hamburgers. Its crispy crust, tangy sauce, and gooey cheese combination are irresistible. Yet, with so many pizzerias around town, which is the best pizza High Point has to offer?
While you might find dozens of pizzerias in your town, not all create the slice of heaven you crave. Moreover, the style of pizza is almost as varied as the toppings. Yet, whether you want NY style, Chicago deep dish, or Sicilian style, popular Italian restaurants have similar characteristics:
“The staff, the food omg I love this place and refuse to get pizza anywhere else. If you want pizza you come here.” – Mike Smith
“Excellent pizza, as someone from the Philly/NJ/NYC area born and raised but now in Western PA (where great pizza is lacking), I’m picky about my pizza and know what I’m looking for in quality. I was VERY happy and impressed with Mario’s just regular cheese pizza. Loved it, as good as I’ve maybe had in the past few years. Keep up the great work! (Also we used Door Dash and everything went well).” – Gavin Hoban
While we specialize in delicious pizza, we also offer many other tasty Italian dishes including subs, calzones, stromboli, and parmigiana. Plus, we offer over a dozen appetizers, salads, and delectable desserts.
Generally, great Italian cuisine begins with family recipes from the old country. Of course, Mario’s dishes trace their roots back to Calabria, Italy.
However, we also recognize the importance of value and being able to take your family out to dinner. That’s why we offer a kid’s menu with options for $5 and under along with daily specials.
Americans lead very busy lives. Ordering online offers the convenience of having food ready when you need it. Of course, Mario’s offers this accommodation at all our locations. You can choose to pick it up or have it delivered to your door. Either way, you’ll save time and have a tasty meal.
While the pizzeria’s qualities are important, it’s time to talk about the best pizza High Point has to offer. What makes one restaurant’s pizza superior to another? Below, we outline the required features of the best tasting pizza.
Undoubtedly, you can taste the difference between fresh and preserved ingredients. Canning and processing companies use sodium, sugar, and preservatives to increase the shelf-life of food. However, these additives mask the true flavor of the substance. Of course, at Mario’s we use the freshest ingredients possible.
Even if the rest of your pie is superb, a soggy, tasteless crust will ruin it. Whether you like it thin or thick, the best pizza begins with the crust. Three characteristics make the perfect crust:
If the crust is the base of your pizza, the sauce is the enhancer. With the taste of fresh tomatoes perfectly seasoned, the sauce improves the overall flavor of the pie.
Usually, pizza lovers will hotly debate which toppings make the best pizza. However, whichever combination you prefer, the best pizzerias will offer plenty of options. Here at Mario’s Pizza, we have over 20 regular and premium toppings designed to make your pizza memorable.
Wood-fired or gas oven? Typically, each way of baking may impart a slightly different flavor. However, great pizza chefs also pay attention to oven temperature and cooking time to produce the perfect pie. Never soggy, undercooked, or dry, a great pizza is a delicacy to savor.
Of course, when you put all these qualities together, you should end up with a pizza that tastes delicious.
