Judd Grisanti Joins Tug’s to Make Roman-style Pizzas

Jun 22, 2020 42

Beginning June 19th, customers at Tug’s Casual Grill in Harbor Town can enjoy dine-in and takeout Roman-style pizzas created by Judd Grisanti, chef/owner of Ronnie Grisanti’s Restaurant. Grisanti came on board as a consultant to create specialty gourmet pizzas with a Southern flair. Pizzas will include “Burnin’ Love,” “Tiger’s Prey,” the “King,” “Voodoo Village,” and “Smoke on the Water,” a barbecue pizza with pulled pork from Central Barbecue.

“We thought it would be fun to name the pizzas after some things around Memphis,” Grisanti says. He collaborated with Tug’s general manager Neal Heaslett to create the pizzas. “Roman style is different than a Neapolitan type,” Grisanti says. “It’s a little bit thicker crust. More of a durable crust than a thin, thin crust. But still has the great crunch to it and holds up very, very well.”
