Why does Kozmo's Pizza taste so good? We are so glad you asked................
When the three Kozmo's 'amigos' (some might say 'Stooges'), Maury, Rick and Chuck, decided to open Kozmo's Grille in Downtown Massillon in 2005, they felt they wanted to bring something a little bit different (Just Different Enough?) to Western Stark County. So they went about investigating hearthstone pizza ovens.
Their quest lead them to Bellingham, Washington, where they toured the Wood Stone Corporation's manufacturing facilities and learned firsthand how a hearthstone oven can add a tremendous flavor profile to pizzas, plus impart phenomenal texture and finish to pizza crust.
Of course, there was just a little bit of sampling and tasting involved, and washing down of samples with adult beverages, both at Wood Stone and at Bellingham and Seattle area pizzerias that use the Wood Stone ovens. Tough work, for sure, but our intrepid trio was up to the arduous task!
Having satisfied themselves that this was, indeed, the right thing to make Kozmo's 'Just Different Enough', they ponied up to invest in their Wood Stone hearthstone pizza oven, beefed up the floor to bear the weight of their new acquisition, knocked out a window to get it in the building, and the rest is history! Next, they again unselfishly forced themselves to cook and eat countless pizza recipes looking for the 'gourmet' pizzas that they were searching for. Shortly, they had their recipes in hand.
