Voted Best Pizza Fort Wayne

Three-Peat for a’Roma Pizza as Best Pizza

Voted Best Pizza in Fort Wayne 2021, 2020, 2019

As a fan of the two-time 3-Peat champion Chicago Bulls team of the 1990s, a’Roma Pizza owner Shaun Beiswanger is ecstatic about winning the Readers’ Choice Best Pizza award for a third straight year. “We always thought we were the Little Caesars of the ‘90s,” he said. “Dominos and Pizza Hut were the fancy pizza. And now full circle, 20 years later, and people prefer real [traditional] pizza.” Beiswanger attended North Side High School in the late 1990s, coincidently around the time when the family owned spot, a few blocks from the school, closed for business. When it reopened in 2018, it was still a family business, even for the employees who weren’t directly related.

Beiswanger learned how to make pizzas at age seven, the same age that his oldest daughter was when they reopened. It takes up to 10 minutes to make an a’Roma pizza topped with fresh ingredients including the sausage they make themselves from local ground pork. Their staples, like their Original Pepperoni and their Everything Pizza (like a Supreme), have been augmented by new selections their fans requested. They do Italian grinders and rolls, chicken wings and salads. a’Roma Pizza, suited for delivery and pick-up orders, was equipped to endure the pandemic. The shop was able to excel during the COVID crisis because of the visibility from their charity work, Beiswanger said. His mom and former a’Roma owner worked with troubled kids at Parkview, Charter Beacon, and Park Center; she adopted and fostered dozens of kids. During the pandemic, the charitable-minded a’Roma provided PPE and donated pizza to Lutheran Villages, Parkview, Nursing Homes, and the VA hospital. The shop’s Pie-It-Forward program (pay $10 for a single-topping large pizza to pay-it-forward) ran successfully for two months.

On the 20th Anniversary of 9/11, a’Roma Pizza served first responders at Station 15 from their food truck and others at their store. a’Roma’s most successful addition is their food truck. Orders and event schedules are available on their Facebook page. A text message is sent when your selection gets placed in the oven. “It’s a learning curve for us because we do [the restaurant] really well,” he said. Beiswanger has charitable plans for the pizza truck, of course. For information on booking the food truck visit their Facebook page.
