Rulli's Pizza - Elkhart County Pizza Winner

Rulli's Pizza


Rulli’s is a neighborhood favorite, and was chosen as Elkhart County’s Pizza War winner.

Sam Rulli’s recipes have been passed down from his Italian grandparents, and you can see his grandmother’s photo on the wall, stirring sauce. Sam says his grandfather taught him to make crust  40 years ago.

Most will sit down to either Papa’s Spicy PizzaGiardinara, pepperoni, tomatoes, onions & red hot sauce, Papa’s Spicy Pizza (flavored with giardiniera, pepperoni, tomatoes, onions and red-hot sauce) or Nana’s Sweet variety (a delicious combo of Vidalia sauce, onions, chicken and tomatoes).
