Sazza brings local, sustainable and farm-to-table concepts to the world of pizza. "We have never felt it necessary to define our version of farm-to-table because it is a lifestyle choice not a business decision," says Jeff Rogoff, co-owner of Sazza with his wife, Jenni Hayes. "What does that mean? In our home, we eat only organic produce, meats and poultry and we support local purveyors whenever possible. This is the mantra that we took to Sazza nine years ago and have continued to do more as Sazza evolves." Sazza also takes local beyond food, using local for necessities from ink cartridges to plates. Silverware is donated by customers. "It's all about reusing," Rogoff adds. Local menu items include butternut squash soup and pumpkin pizza, available in the fall, and other rotating specials. And each September Sazza hosts a farm-to-table dinner that's 90-percent local, with farmer/purveyor speakers; proceeds benefit a nonprofit.

- Farm to Table: "Try the house-made margaritas and mojitos. The margarita uses a local agave (tequila), freshly squeezed organic limes, lemons and oranges and a house-made simple syrup. The mojitos use a local crafted rum, freshly squeezed organic limes, house-made mint-infused simple syrup and organic mint leaves (grown in the restaurant's herb boxes during warmer months)."
- Best for Farm to Table Because: From Jeff Rogoff, co-owner: "Food justice is something that is a passion of ours that goes hand-in-hand with our passion of running a restaurant."
