Grande Jr. Pizza Express shutting down its doors after successful six-year run

After six years in business, Grande Jr. Pizza Express, a popular pizza spot in Washington County, is closing its doors. The shop, located along Racetrack Road near the Meadows Casino, announced that their time had come to an end. They will be keeping pizza in stock for as long as they can ahead of their final day on Saturday. However, as they run out of items this week, those items will be removed from the menu.

The shop thanked all of their supporters for six years of business. Earlier this year, Grande Jr. Pizza Express was ranked #1 in the 2024 Best Pizza in Pittsburgh contest hosted by 100.7 Star and judged by a panel of local experts. The pizza provided during the contest was a Detroit-style pizza.
