Opening day includes free pizza, cooked in two minutes

Boston’s warm front will continue this week with the opening of 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzanear Government Center. The New Jersey-based chain officially debuts its newest location at 45 Court St. on Thursday, August 24, and to celebrate the opening, 1000 Degrees will offer free pizzas throughout the day, until the restaurant runs out.

This is the first Massachusetts location of the 1000 Degrees chain, and owner Ken Pasquariello plans to offer the first 10 people in line one free pizza each week for a year. 1000 Degrees operates with a counter service-style setup reminiscent of other fast-casual pizza spots like Blaze Pizza and Crush Pizza: Customers choose from dozens of toppings that get added to their pie, then wait for the pizza to cook for two minutes in a brick oven.

The menu at 1000 Degrees also includes bread sticks, salads, and wings. The restaurant will operate Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

New restaurants not only bring jobs, but they also bring vendor and construction opportunities for local firms.

The chain offers 12 specialty pizzas, including favorites like the Barbecue Bourbon Chicken, which features sweet and smoky bourbon barbecue sauce, roasted chicken, red onion, pineapple, shredded Grande brand mozzarella and blue cheeses. Pizzas are fired at 1000 degrees in a Neapolitan brick oven and cook in about two minutes.

It’s all about options at 1000 Degrees, where patrons can get a 10-inch or 14-inch pizza with seven different meat options, 12 types of veggies and eight varieties of cheeses and sauces, all assembled in front of your eyes. Pizza crusts are a classic Neapolitan style, or a Roman style that is a thicker variety that’s rolled out into more of a flatbread.
