Pizza is the most nutritious food you can eat in a fast and casual setting. More and more people are eating out and with all the emphasis on healthy nutrition, pizza is your best bet. Don Carmelo’s, is even better. We’ve been focused on nutrition since 1988. We use 100% meats, quality cheeses with no fillers, only fresh vegetables and almost everything is prepared from scratch. We use the natural flavors of the food and don’t depend on gimmicky spices, fillers or fried foods.
In 1995, the Omaha World Herald commissioned a study of the leading pizza chains in Omaha. They found that Don Carmelo’s had the lowest fat content among all the pizzas. (Most would agree that we’re also the best tasting.)
Why do we eat food? There’s really only one reason why humans eat food. That is to get the nutrients out of the food as our body digests it and turn it into life-giving energy. That’s why our focus is on delivering the most nutritious and good tasting food that we can. We use the best available products to create our traditional recipes.
When we create our meatballs, we start with two types of meat, custom ground by a local butcher. We mix (by hand) a combination of spices and special ingredients in the same measure and the same order, each time. They are baked in the pizza oven and the aroma is intoxicating! After they have cooled, we float them in our Spaghetti Sauce so they take on the complexity of the lean meat, the spices and the sauce.
We wouldn’t serve you food that we don’t serve our own family.
