312 Pizza Company
371 Monroe Street, Nashville
As Chicago natives we take pride in bringing you authentic Chicago deep dish pizza and other specialties from the Windy City. Our pizza sauce recipe has been passed down over three generations from our grandmother, who spent time cooking with the Italian immigrants in Little Italy. The sauce is blended with herbs and seasoning left to marinate overnight. An excellent sauce is never heated until used on your pie. This insures a perfectly fresh, aromatic taste; not a reheated tomato flavor. Our beef and chicken are free from growth hormones and antibiotics, and we source local and organic produce whenever possible. To say we take pride in the quality of our products would be an understatement!
