    OUR PIZZA

    Voted Best Pizza for 10 years running, our company is founded on our tasty and crave-able pies. We want you to become loyal followers of our craft, our passion, and our mission— to create a Culture of Crust one delectable pizza at a time. As Madisonians (and soon the world will) know, for the past decade The Roman Candle has been devoted to quality sourcing, Wisconsin cheese, and community involvement, all stitched together with a craft, handmade approach.

    Pizza isn't the only thing we’re making better: our proprietary ordering system permits high efficiency and quick delivery without forfeiting quality. If your heart doesn’t burn bright like a Roman Candle for pizza, then we’ve failed you (or your taste buds have; in that case, you should probably see a doctor about that).
