Fresco Pizza Rochester Hills CLOSED

Fresco Pizza, located on University Drive in Rochester Hills across the street from Crittenton Hospital, has closed for business. I went to Fresco frequently for lunch – apparently not frequently enough. I noticed it was closed a few months ago when I tried to go there for lunch. I had hoped the closing was temporary but it appears they’re done for good. I have no info regarding the closing or if Fresco will return somewhere else. Below is our original review of Fresco Pizza Rochester Hills.

Fresco Pizza Rochester Hills Review – Pics, and menu info. Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria, located across the street from Crittenton Hospital in Rochester MI, opened in 2010 and is serving up some of the finest New York-style thin crust pizza. Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria is a small pizzeria with only about seven tables inside.

After hearing friends of ours repeatedly recommend Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria, my husband and I went to try it out.

Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria cooks the New York style thin crust pizza in a wood burning oven. The thin crust pizza is cooked at high temps (750 degrees F) and is done in just a couple minutes. And, the end result is a thin crust that is slightly crispy, yet easy to “fold,” topped with bubbling melted cheese and other authentic Italian toppings. New-York style pizza snobs may not be thrilled that the crust isn’t playing card-thin like some NY-style enthusiasts prefer, but I thought the thickness was perfect. Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria offers the usual pizza toppings, but also has unique selections available such as basil, proscuitto, pecorino, caciocavallo, provolone, ricotta, arugula and more.

Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria uses quality ingredients you can taste. One that stood out to me was the sauce. It’s more zesty than sweet, has a perfect consistency (not too thick and not too runny), and adds great flavor. Perhaps the best pizza sauce I’ve tasted.

When you order your NY thin crust pizza at Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria, you can add a shake of garlic seasoning, red pepper flakes, oregano and/or parmesan.

Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria has a large wine and bottled beer menu. Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria menu also offers appetizers, salads and hero sandwiches. Appetizers include marinated olives, meatballs, roasted peppers and sausage (roasted in the wood oven). There are four salads to choose from including the Arugola, fresh baby arugola, prosciutto, parmesan cheese with a balsamic dressing. The hero sandwiches at Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria are topped with sauce and cheese, and then roasted and toasted in the wood oven.

Fresco Pizza menu prices start at $7 and goes all the way up to $12. One pizza is plenty for 1 famished adult or is a lighter meal for 2 people.
