In addition to burgers and Mexican food you’ll soon be able to get your pizza fix as the franchise Neapolitan pizzeria MidiCi is coming to the Willows shopping center where Road Runner Sports used to be. Check out their pizza menu here.

Staying true to Neapolitan heritage, our dough is made with only four fine ingredients – non-GMO double zero flour imported from Naples, pure water, sea salt and live yeast. The authentic and pure garnishes include – crushed non-GMO Italian peeled tomatoes, fresh whole mozzarella and non-GMO, Italian extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil.
