Mazzio’s Italian Eatery is bringing back Ken’s Original Thin and Crispy Pizza in March to continue its 50th anniversary celebration.
Mazzio’s founder Ken Selby opened his first pizza restaurant, The Pizza Parlor, on November 11, 1961, across from The University of Tulsa campus. Ken’s original recipe captured many hearts with its crispy crust and spicy sauce.
Now, that same memorable pizza is back for a limited time during March. Most Mazzio’s locations will offer Ken’s 15-inch, extra large one-topping pizza for $10.50 or the five-topping supreme for $13.50.
“We’re taking customers back to where it all started, with Ken’s original pizza,” said Greg Lippert, president and CEO of Mazzio’s LLC. “The original spicy sauce and crispy crust makes it an all-time favorite, and we knew we had to make it part of our 50th celebration.”
With 166 locations in 10 states, Tulsa-based Mazzio’s Italian Eatery, established in 1961, offers customers fast service, convenience, value and quality. Its extensive menu features a wide variety of pizza, pasta, salad bar and sandwiches. Open daily for lunch and dinner, Mazzio’s is perfect for dine-in, carryout, delivery or catering.
