For the BEST PIZZA in town, where should you go in Orange County?
According to the OC Register, Zito's New York Style Pizza is ranked year after year among THE BEST by locals who know first hand.

This is one of the many businesses you'll find profiled in the new business magazine TV show, "Must See in OC TV" - a production of WorldBizWatch, in association with the Business Alliance of Orange County.

Zito's started nearly 23 years ago, when Steve Silverstein and his wife took over a struggling pizzeria that they loved.
A native son of Villa Park in OC, Steve says "the pizza was the type of quality pizza you'd think about getting in downtown Manhattan, in Brooklyn," where his father grew up.

So they invested their savings to carry on the old family's secret recipe. And it paid off.

Sara McCarthy says "It tastes homemade, w fresh ingredients, not processed, not oily. Good pizza."

The dough is hand-tossed and made fresh daily. Each large pizza is topped with nearly a pound of fresh mozzarella cheese from Wisconsin. And every large pepperoni comes with AT LEAST 50 slices.

Only the freshest ingredients are used. Portions are huge. And the sauce packs an extra spicy kick.

Since then, Steve has opened four mom-and-pop style restaurants serving New York style pizza across Orange County.

Most have multiple TVs, with high ceilings and murals on the walls that make you feel you're in The Big Apple.

The pizzerias have all become neighborhood traditions for countless families, schools and sports teams -- many of which Zito's sponsors.

And building on the success of Zitos, Steve created his latest dream - Zito's on 17th - a full service, sit down restaurant with a high class menu. It's located at the famous Enderle Center in Tustin, ranked as OC's best neighborhood shopping center.

Find out why so many say Zitos is the Best in OC - and a home away from home!
