Stone Hearth Pizza Co. has a simple focus—to serve the highest quality Neapolitan style, thin crust pizza along with gourmet salads and a hand-picked selection of wine and beer. Our menu is forever evolving, but will always incorporate a healthy blend of premium organic, locally produced, and sustainable ingredients. These details matter. They help guarantee a superior product, support family farming, protect natural resources, and strengthen local economies. Our goal is to create a space that is inviting, warm, and a little hip. Most of all, we hope to create a place where you will be treated with respect and provided exceptional service so you can relax and enjoy a delicious, affordable meal with family and friends.
