It’s hard to replicate that fresh out of the oven taste at home. But don’t worry Grotto Pizza’s bake at home option is back.

According to Yahoo Sports! “Customers can once again purchase 12-inch frozen cheese pizzas at the counter of Grotto Pizza restaurants in Delaware and Maryland and cook them at home. The Bake at Home pizza, however, is not available at Pennsylvania stores. The pizzas can be stored in the refrigerator or freezer. A thawed pizza takes up to 10 minutes to cook in a 425-degree oven, and a frozen pizza heats up in about 10 to 12 minutes.”

The return of the bake at home option concludes a two year hiatus. Grotto Pizza says they wanted to perfect the process to bring a high quality pizza into people’s homes.

Grotto Pizza encourages customers to add their favorites toppings at home.

For now there is not a shipping option for the pizzas but Grotto says it is something they will consider in the future.

According to their website “Dominick Pulieri was born in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania to Italian-immigrant parents. After high school, Dominick enrolled at Kings College in Wilkes-Barre and graduated as a pre-med major with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology in 1964. In addition to founding Grotto Pizza, Dominick taught biology, general science and chemistry in the Smyrna Special School District from 1965 to 1970.”

Grotto Pizza has grown to multiple locations throughout the states of Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. Although Grotto Pizza has expanded beyond the small take-out stand, the company continues to adhere to its core values of excellent pizza, food, friendly guest service and community service.

I used to live off Grotto’s buffalo chicken bites in college. I am really digging this bake at home option.

Wilmington Area Restaurants Open On Christmas Eve

Wilmington Area Restaurants Open On Christmas Eve

Personally, I enjoy being in the kitchen with family cooking up traditional recipes during the holidays.  I enjoy baking cookies, making my corn casserole and supplying the appetizers for our family.  But, that’s me.  Not everyone likes to spend their time at home, much less behind the stove.  It does take a toll after being on your feet all day for a meal that really only ends up lasting about 15 minutes or so.

Or maybe you do enjoy cooking, but your Christmas Eve plans call for take out or going out to dinner.  If you’re one of those people looking for a place to grab a bite to eat on Christmas Eve, look no further.

We’ve put together a list of Delaware Restaurants Open On Christmas Eve.  Most of the restaurants on the list are chains, but there are some local places offering meals too.

As always, it’s a good idea to reach out to your nearest location before going in to be sure your locally owned restaurant is open and not operating on their own holiday hours.

So, here are Wilmington Area Restaurants Open On Christmas Eve
