Hoosier favorite pizza?

Family opens basketball-themed pizzeria

(Continued)

BROWNSBURG —

So fresh that Aldridge laughs that when he comes into work, he’s often carrying vegetables that he just bought for the day. He’s confident his model will work.

“I know we’ve got a quality product,” he said. “I’d put our pizzas up against anybody’s in town with the freshness of everything. Our sauce, you’re not going to get it anywhere else. It’s a good sauce for pizza. I’ve worked for places where all their vegetables are in a bag and put in a walk-in, and you don’t know how long it’s been there.”

Aldridge’s favorite part of this new journey, however, has everything to do with family.

“My kids love pizza,” he said. “This is a family business. We all work here. My wife has a full-time job and then she comes here to help. Eventually we’ll grow and make it a little bigger, make it more of a sit-down style restaurant where we can serve more. Eventually we’re going to do lunch and add pastas to our menu. But the most enjoyable part is being able to do it with my family, being able to grow a business with them.”

He said he’s looking to get his name out there by giving back to the community. As of this season, 10 percent of the proceeds from sales on Brownsburg basketball game nights will go back to the basketball program, he said. Additionally, he offers free food during a half time free throw shooting contest.

“We just came out with a pizza called the Bulldog,” he said. “It’s a pulled pork barbecue pizza and it’s awesome. It’s barbecue sauce, mozzarella cheese, pulled pork, and banana peppers.”

He said they deliver in Brownsburg as well as Clermont.

“I like serving people,” he said. “I like meeting new people, and being a part of the community. It’s a great feeling when you see someone eat your food and they enjoy it and they come back. That’s the satisfaction I get.”
