Unlike other leading national frozen pizza brands, Home Run Inn pizzas are made from scratch using fresh, high-quality, all-natural ingredients with no additives or chemicals. Its distinguishably delicious dough is hand-crafted and made from clean ingredients you can pronounce, including wheat flour, water, corn oil, yeast, and salt.
“For decades, Home Run Inn fans have been over the moon about our signature crust, so we thought it would be fun to strip it down and give them the gift of Nothing But Crust this holiday season,” Gina (Perrino) Bolger, Senior Vice President and fourth-generation family member of Home Run Inn. “As a family-owned and operated company, what we make our pizzas from matters, which is exactly why we use only the best ingredients. Pizza is the great unifier, no matter what holiday our fans are celebrating or how they choose to enjoy our crust, we know they will be excited for this historic first.”
Celebrating its 75th anniversary year, Home Run Inn is a proud, family-owned business—one with deep roots in the city of Chicago. In 1923, the original Home Run Inn location opened as a small tavern on Chicago’s South Side. Founded by Mary and Vincent Grittani, the tavern received its name one fateful day when a home run baseball from the neighborhood park smashed through one of the tavern’s windows. In 1947, after baseball made history, Mary and her son-in-law, Nick Perrino, crafted its iconic Chicago pizza recipe. Today, Home Run Inn operates nine pizzerias throughout the Chicagoland area, with its frozen pizzas sold nationwide.
