Reader's Choice - Best Local Pizza (pickup/delivery) Gus Nassar, owner of Rome's Pizza views his business the way a painter sees a canvas. "Fine food is a mixture of flavors. A chef is like a painter. He has basic colors. Most recipes are kind of a variation of a classic recipe," he said. All of Nassar's recipes are his own creation. A few of his gourmet pizzas are the Mediterranean Greek Pizza with gyro strips (savory strips of meat) and feta cheeses; a Rosemary Garlic Duo with mozzarella, smoked and fresh garlic, peanuts and rosemary; and the White House with mozzarella, red onion, garlic, basil and olive oil. Vegetarians who discover Romes believe they have stumbled upon paradise.
