Americans love classic Italian ground meat rolled into balls – smothered in rich, thick marinara sauce, and melted cheese atop a crusty roll. It’s an affordable yet delicious and satisfying meal. While it’s relatively simple to prepare, the process can be time-consuming. For convenience and great-tasting food, stop by Mario’s Pizza for a delicious meatball sub near me.
Historians think the ancient Persians were the first to enjoy meatballs. However, as the recipe traveled to other countries, people created their version by using local ingredients. In Italy, the people added eggs, garlic, parsley, and cheese to ground meat. Sometimes this was beef, veal, chicken, or a combination. Typically, the polpette, as Italians called them, were small and saved for special occasions due to the cost of meat.
However, when Italian immigrants arrived in America in the late 19th century, they found meat was much more inexpensive. Thus, they began to make larger-sized meatballs and eat them more frequently. Today, you can find meatballs atop spaghetti, on pizza, or on submarine sandwiches.
Universally, people have been eating sandwiches for a long time. However, it wasn’t until the 1900s in America that the submarine version became popular. Back then, Giovanni Amato, an Italian immigrant living in Maine, sold bread rolls to dock workers. His customers began asking for meat, cheese, and vegetables on the bread thus creating the first submarine sandwich.
The origins of the meatball sub are much more uncertain. Traditionally, Italians don’t eat meatballs with tomato sauce as this is an American invention. However, at some point in time, a chef put meatballs with tomato sauce and cheese on a football-shaped roll. Today, the meatball sub is one of the most popular versions of the sandwich.
Sometimes, fans of the meatball sandwich disagree over the details of how to make the best meatball sub. However, you’ll need several crucial ingredients:
The foundation of any submarine sandwich, it’s important to pick a great-tasting bread. You can choose Italian bread, baguette, or Hoagie rolls.
Do you prefer tomato or marinara sauce? One is simple with a few spices. The other is thick, rich, and complex.
Typically, traditionalists insist on using mozzarella cheese. Its creamy and mild flavor complements the meatball and sauce flavors. Others like the more robust flavor of provolone. While some choose the salty, pronounced flavor of parmesan.
Of course, the star of the show is the meatball. if you don’t have a good recipe, the rest of the sub won’t matter. A great-tasting meatball starts with good-quality ground beef. Some chefs mix in some ground pork or mild, Italian sausage. Add in breadcrumbs, egg, fresh parsley, and garlic and you’ll have great flavor.
At Mario’s Pizza, you might say we’re crazy about meatballs. We have created a delicious meatball sub just like Mama used to make. Our recipe begins with our secret blend of beef, pork, and spices. Then, we smother them with our special Marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese.
Of course, we offer many other Italian dishes as well. For example, you’ll find 10 other subs besides our meatball sandwich. Plus, we have plenty of appetizers, salads, specialty pizzas, Italian dishes, and desserts. We even have a kids’ menu for smaller appetites affordably priced at $5 or less.

For many Americans, ordering a slice of pizza means a crust covered with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese. Generally, many people believe this is the original version of pizza. However, long before tomato-based pizza, ancient people ate a version of pizza bianca. If you’re searching for great-tasting white pizza near me, stop by Mario’s Pizza.
From ancient times and throughout the centuries, people ate a form of flatbread with toppings. For example, the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians baked pita bread topped with native ingredients. Typically, early versions didn’t use tomatoes so these early versions resembled white pizza.
It wasn’t until about 1550 that Italians began cultivating and incorporating tomatoes into their dishes. Before then, Europeans believed it was poisonous. As Americans discovered the benefits of tomatoes, news traveled back to the Old World. Then, around the late 1880s Italian bakers began using tomatoes on pizza.
When Italian immigrants landed on the American shore, they brought their culture and old-world recipes. Soon, many New Yorkers were also consuming Italian flatbread or pizza. As the love for pizza spread, so did variations. Chefs created thicker crusts and different sauces. They experimented with varying cheeses and pizza toppings.
Oddly, some of these “new” originals are simply similar versions of ancient peoples’ cheese topped flatbread. For example, white pizza, or pizza bianca, is very close to the meal eaten in Europe about 6 BC.
A chief characteristic of pizza bianca is the lack of tomato sauce. Without the bright red color of tomatoes, the pizza has a white appearance. Hence, its nickname. However, the lack of tomato sauce isn’t the only defining characteristic. For example, chicken barbeque pizza uses barbeque sauce instead of tomato, yet it’s not pizza bianca.
Additionally, you’ll find different versions of white pizza that differ from traditional pizza bianca. However, the traditional Roman pizza bianca uses a few simple ingredients. Typically, chefs begin with a thin crust. They top this with olive oil, garlic, and mozzarella cheese. Sometimes, chefs will also use ricotta and other traditional pizza toppings.
Pizza bianca is a simple, yet delicious and comforting meal, especially when eaten fresh and warm from the oven. The best place to get your white pizza is from Italians who know their way around a kitchen. Brothers Vinny, Tony, and Mario grew up in a large Italian family in Brooklyn, NY. After relocating to North Carolina in 1981, they began selling their delicious pizzas.
In addition to Mario’s authentic NY-style pizza, we also make a traditional white pizza. We top our version with ricotta, fresh garlic, and mozzarella cheese. Plus, we offer plenty of regular and premium toppings to individualize your pizza:

Sandwiches are one of those incredibly satisfying and comforting foods. Their versatility offers a great variety of flavors and textures in a convenient package. Moreover, their popularity spans the globe with a different type of sandwich for every culture. In America, we love our submarine sandwiches, both hot and cold. And when you’re searching for the best sub sandwiches near me, stop by Mario’s Pizza.
Notably, Italian immigrants invented many of America’s beloved foods including the submarine sandwich. Giovanni Amato, an Italian immigrant, receives the credit for originating this easily transportable meal.
Usually, the locals’ favorite sub sandwich varies by geographical area. However, one thing remains constant: a long, football-shaped roll holds all the ingredients.
Below, we name some of the most beloved and iconic flavors.
Sometimes called the Philly Cheese Steak, this submarine sandwich is a filling, hearty sandwich. The original began in the 1930s with 2 hot dog vendors, Pat and Harry Olivieri. Legend has it that they grew tired of hot dogs, fried beef with onions instead, and had a hit. About a decade later, they added cheese.
Truett Cathy of Chik-fil-A fame claims he was the first restaurant to serve the chicken sandwich in 1946. However, many believe local restaurants were serving this sandwich much earlier. Usually, the main difference between the chicken sandwich and the sub is the bread. Sandwiches use brioche or hamburger buns while subs use long rolls.
With its mild, neutral flavor, turkey pairs great with many other flavors. Spicy, sweet, or savory accompaniments turn this all-American favorite into something truly special.
No one knows who first served meatballs on bread slathered with marinara sauce and melted mozzarella. However, we all know it makes a delicious combination.
People debate the origins of this iconic combination almost as much as they do the meaning of its name. Some claim it derives its name from its popularity at country clubs. While others maintain the letters are an acronym for the ingredients (chicken, lettuce under bacon).
For the classic Italian sub sandwich, you must use traditional Italian meat and cheese topped with lettuce and tomato. Think of pepperoni, salami, prosciutto, and provolone. Layer these upon your roll and drizzle with oil and vinegar. Mangiamo!
With many consumers choosing a vegetarian lifestyle, more restaurants are offering meat-free options. Some popular choices are mushrooms, peppers, onions, lettuce, and tomato. Sometimes, ingredients vary depending on your geographical location.
Of course, Mario’s serves up delicious subs! Our chefs prepare 11 different types. In addition, we also have many other tasty Italian dishes derived from family recipes brought over from Calabria, Italy. Our specialties include appetizers, entrees, and desserts.
