In this time of uncertainty, we are eternally grateful to our guests and staff who have supported us up to this point. We will be keeping Roots Handmade Pizza open for pick up and delivery during this government mandated closure. For the time being, we ask that if you’d like to support our staff and our business, you may purchase gift cards at, you may still order from our locations offering delivery/pick-up, and you are welcome to contact us directly for any other means of support outreach and we’d be happy to facilitate. Our group is fighting for the livelihood of all of our staff, and we’re working on the best ways internally and externally to take care of our people. Although we recognize that this  is the right precaution to take, it doesn’t take away the fact that many people will have a hard time making ends meet in the interim.
