The Ohio Restaurant Association Education Foundation announces the launching of statewide fundraising campaign to benefit Ohio Restaurant Employee Relief Fund
From Monday, January 25 to Sunday, January 31, the Ohio Restaurant Association Education Foundation (ORAEF) is collaborating with pizza operators and restauranteurs with generous hearts on a statewide fundraiser, called Pizza with a Purpose, to benefit the Ohio Restaurant Employee Relief Fund.
Participating pizza operators across the Buckeye state will donate $1.00 per pepperoni pizza sold to the Fund, which provides grants to restaurant, foodservice and hospitality employees financially impacted by the pandemic.
The number of pizzas sold will be tracked, the individual location that sells the most pizzas will be recognized as “Best Pepperoni Pizza” in Ohio and awarded the coveted “Golden Pizza” slice trophy.
Currently, more than 250 operators and restauranteurs with over 100 locations total have signed up to participate, including the following:

“We’re incredibly honored and excited to be a part of this effort to raise awareness and funds for restaurant employees that are hurting during this difficult time. Getting pizza operators across the state to come together for a great cause is something that is the heart of every business owner that cares about their community and its people,” said Ryan Rose, president & CEO of Romeo’s Pizza Franchise, one of many participating operators. Rose is a member of the ORA & Education Foundation board of directors.
“We are so thankful for all of the pizza operators participating to help raise funds for those in need,” said John Barker, ORA president & CEO. “The need is severe. During the pandemic, we’ve conducted polls about the health of restaurants across the state to assess the devastating impacts of COVID-19 on the industry. Recent poll numbers reveal that at current capacity, 74% of Ohio restaurant operators believe they will be forced to close within one year and 82% of respondents did not break even in 2020. Additionally, the Bureau of Labor Statistics just released numbers that the restaurant industry lost 372,000 jobs nationwide in the month of December alone and is down 2.4 million jobs since March 2020.”
Even with the vaccine distribution in the early stages, Ohio’s 585,000 restaurant and foodservice employees are still struggling to find work due to many furloughs and are in financial distress.
“Since its launch in April 2020, the Relief Fund has awarded more than 1,300 grants to use for housing, living and medical expenses, and fundraised over $400,000 for employees in need,” said Patty Halper, Executive Director of the ORA Education Foundation. “Pizza with a Purpose is one of the many ways the ORAEF and generous operators are supporting them and we look forward to the promotion later this month.”
Pizza enthusiasts can learn more here and contribute to the cause through participating in Pizza with a Purpose or by donating directly to the fund at OhioRestaurantsRelief.org.
You have heard the buzz and mumblings, and may have even seen what the pizzas look like. . Giordano’s Pizza is coming. Yes, finally, a one of a kind Deep Dish Chicago Style Icon will enter the Miami Valley, and thick pizza in Dayton will forever be changed.
Opening day will be Tuesday, Feb 19th!
They will open at 2819 Centre Drive, which is across from the Fairfield Commons, in the spot that was once Logan’s Steakhouse.
Eating the pizza here is a Food Adventure. in fact it is more of a pie than pizza. A combination of deep dish pizza, a stuffed pizza and a tomato pie from all walks and regions of Italian life.
HERE’S THE SKINNY ON GIORDANO’S RESTAURANT:
— In the 1800’s in Turino, Italy, Mama Giordano would get married to a Mr Boglio. Every Easter she would make a big “Italian Easter Pie” for her family. This pie was made only on special occasions and was a huge, stuffed pizza.
— In 1974 Italian immigrants Efren and Joseph Boglio started serving their mom’s recipe in the South side of Chicago.
— In 2018 they have about 50 locations, one about to be Dayton, Ohio !
HOW TO MAKE A FAMOUS GIORDANO’S STUFFED PIZZA:
1) The pizzas are made to order and baked like a pie
2) An oiled, Deep Dish pan is lined with a signature flaky, thick dough on the bottom. This dough tastes like a mix of pizza dough, part pie dough, and part “pot pie” crust.
3) The pan is lined with ingredients placed on top of the thick crust.
4) The ingredients are covered in a huge mound of mozzarella cheese
5) This step is the “secret” that sets them apart. A thin layer of top dough is than placed atop the pizza and trimmed off, making a pie type appearance. Numerous air holes are purposely put into this layer.
6) A thick, generous helping of marinara sauce is hand ladled onto the thin top crust , covering it completely.
7) The pizza is baked for 45 minutes.
There you have it, the steps to a Giordano’s Stuffed pizza. We hope they open sooner than later, we cannot wait for a stuffed pizza Food Adventure.
Besides stuffed pizza Giordano menu features appetizers, Italian dishes, thin crust pizza, salads, and has a full catering menu.
Dayton has had its brush with Chicago Pizzas. Uno’s Pizzeria used to operate 3 stores in Dayton, Centerville and Huber Heights. Two Uno’s have since closed and only the downtown Dayton location remains at 126 North Main St. next to Victoria Theater.

We love Food Trucks. I mean who doesn’t? Mobile, locally owned places filling up hungry patrons anywhere they can get on 4 wheels. The inventive menus always allow for a Food Adventure. And when the trucks form a rally? It’s like a dream ! An instant food court powered by generators !
One such truck that has flown a bit under the radar, is Shantz Express Food Truck. But lately, they have been making some big leaps and bounds.
HERE IS THE SKINNY on SHANTZ EXPRESS FOOD TRUCK:
— Owner Bill Shancey had a pizza place in Pittsburgh, before moving to Dayton more than 16 years ago.
— The menu features, Sandwiches, Gyros, Pulled Pork Nachos, Cheesesteaks, Subs, Pizza, Wings, Fries, Burgers, Dogs and Pierogies.
— They have just announced they are opening a restaurant at 5993 Bigger Road next to Bee-Gee’s Market near the Centerville / Kettering Border. The location is near the Victoria Secret call center which could mean some serious lunch carry out business and they hope to be open in October and to continue to keep the food truck out as well.
— The owner is sometimes flexible and was able to make a private party with just a few hours notice.
We have visited the truck 3 times and always have been impressed. Whether a Food Truck rally or a pool party, Shantz Express pleased the masses.
Here is our list of MUST EATS from our times at this wonderful food truck….
“MUST EATS” AT SHANTZ EXPRESS FOOD TRUCK:
— BUFFALO HOT WINGS:
They are crispy with a kick and a little tang to them. These wings are what put Buffalo on the foodie map.
— GARLIC BUTTER WINGS:
Possibly the best food truck wings in Dayton. These are served wet, and with a few napkins. The results are quiet patrons gnawing on the wings in pure delight.
— THE SHANTZBURGER with CHEESE:
Have you ever had the burgers at the Rootbeer Stand or The K in Springboro?? This burger is just like those. It is a delicious taste of summer and a throwback top the burgers of the 60’s with bellhops. We loved it , great flavor on a soft bun.
Polish people of Dayton unite ! This take on the pierogie is a deep-fried, almost crunchy version served in a buttery garlic bath. The result is a mixture with the garlic mashed potato filling that is simply divine. Dip, bite and repeat for maximum effectiveness.
— THE CHICKEN PARM SANDWICH:
Deep fried chicken sandwich with a slice of mozzarella cheese and homemade tomato sauce. Pretty good stuff for a food truck ! His sauce is the same as Shauncey’s former pizza place in Pittsburgh.
—THE PHILLY CHEESESTEAK:
Flavorful, hearty and filling are the strengths of this sub. He must have spent some time in Philly learning the cheese steak trade…
Honorable Mention: The French Fries, which are slightly reminiscent of McDonalds… whose of course are the best. Also, try a GYRO but make sure to ask them to grill the onions and add extra tzatziki sauce. It makes it all good.
They do have pizza, but we found the other items to be the menu stars.
So, there you have it hungry foodies, your best chance for success when devouring some Shantz Express. We look forward to the new “brick and mortar” place, as they say. For us, it means enjoying Mr. Shauncey’s food year round ! Ohh, those wings though …..
Feel free to browse our gallery below and we will see you at the next food truck rally !!
Boy, have we got a Food Adventure for you this Wednesday! Pizza and Beer!

Food Adventures is a local food blog run by 3 local foodies with a passion for the food that Dayton has to offer. From wholesome nutrition, to fine dining, dives and home kitchen creations, we leave no plate unturned and throw rules out the window. We are honored to have a feature article each and every week right on Dayton Most Metro!
In the Dayton suburb of Franklin, one pizza reigns supreme, Pisanello’s Pizza . This restaurant has quietly been spinning out pies for the past 30 years. Inside the community of Franklin, they have gained a loyal, cult following. Pisanello’s makes hundreds of pizzas each weekday and thousands of pizzas on the weekends. Outside of Franklin, this place is a well-kept secret. But now, The Food Adventure Crew is letting the masses know about this.
One of their biggest attractions, literally, is the Reaper Pizza – a 34 inch monster with your choice of toppings. They even have an eating challenge called the “Reaper Challenge” where 2 people must eat the pizza in 30 minutes to succeed. But we say, order the Reaper pizza with a group and let the Food Adventure begin!
Now to learn a little bit about the Pisanello’s secret….
HERE’S THE SKINNY on PISANELLO’S PIZZA:
—Pisanello’s Pizza started in Alliance Ohio in the early 1960’s. It branched out to Kent, Ohio and eventually Bowling Green, Ohio, in October 1964. Jerry Liss, of Kent, Ohio, started the Bowling Green business after working for Ron Pisanello. Jerry chose Bowling Green, because of the growing student population of Bowling Green State University. With his wife Sylvia, they ran the store for 50 years, to great success. It is still a success today.
—With over 15 franchises in Ohio and Michigan, the chain is strong.
— The Franklin Pisanellos is celebrating their 35th year in business. Owner Tom Combs and Marketing director Bruce Horstman run a well oiled machine. Busy weekends are no problem, as the staff is always hustling with great service.
— Staying with a family theme and atmosphere, no alcohol is sold or allowed on site.
— The pizza dough is made from scratch every day and the sauce is made in-house, with the famous San Marzano brand tomatoes from Italy.
— Sharing the restaurant with sister company TLC Catering, Pisanello’s hosts parties in any of the 3 floors of their building and the party rooms are incredible.
MUST EATS at PISANELLO’S PIZZA:
—THE REAPER PIZZA:
Behold the Masterpiece. This behemoth, 34 inch pizza is sliced into squares, although you can ask for pie slices. The one topping Reaper starts at $34.95 and the deluxe gets up to $54 bucks. You can get up to 4 different sections with different toppings.
—SPICY ASIAN WINGS:
An amazing combo of tang and heat, these are the best wings we have had at a pizza joint in the Dayton area. Although they are baked, they maintain a crisp crunch and stay true to the Buffalo Wing style.
—LOADED TATER TOTS:
Who doesn’t love tater tots? Jackie and Ragu devoured these on the spot during our visits. Get them loaded with cheese and bacon. Sour cream? YES ! or…. dip them in ranch or ketchup !
We were very impressed with the pizza on our visits. They have a nice selection of toppings and we have loved our pies from cheese, to loaded deluxe. The Hand tossed is our favorite style, aka the traditional style. Great Crust, great sauce, the foundations of what makes great pizza, and they have excelled at both.
The slight tang to the Buffalo Wing. Mild, yet a bit of flavor, this is the perfect wing to compliment pizza. They are great, and you could eat ton of them.
A must eat appetizer at Pisanellos.The cheese topped crust is great for dipping and savoring. A solid choice to open the meal.
—KIDS MAKE YOUR OWN PIZZA OPTION:
The most fun a kid can have is making their own pizza, right? This is an ingenious meal where they serve the kids raw ingredients, of crust, cheese, and sauce, and the child makes their own pizza. You then give the pizza uncooked to the server who pops it in the oven and in a few minutes, the kiddos are eating their own creations.
Don’t forget the pizza by the slice deal “2 huge slices and a drink for $5.95.”
Also, we cannot stress enough the amazing beauty of this building. The upstairs floor are refurbished party rooms. They are perfect for your next meeting or get together.
So many great tastes, so little time. Although this place has been here 35 years, so you have all the time in the world….
The bottom line is that this is a great pizza pub, with delicious pies. Go there with some friends and try the REAPER… or go with your immediate family and get a pizza of your choice. We are sure you will find it a tasty stop with friendly service. It isn’t just Franklin’s little secret anymore ….

Are you looking for something different to to for dinner? Then the Food Adventures Crew has a tip for you. How about dinner at the Dayton Raceway’s Skybox Restaurant at the Hollywood Casino while watching live horse racing at a table overlooking the track? The live racing schedule ends December 30th, so you have that much time to book an unforgettable night of fun and food.
Today, we spotlight an unsung restaurant that really doesn’t get any recognition, but has been putting out some decent food for a couple of years now. It is the Skybox Restaurant at Hollywood Casino and Dayton Raceway. It is a smaller restaurant, with a bar and booth area with seating capacity of about 60 people. During live racing days, the restaurant spreads out serving tables in the racino area that overlook the track on different stairstep levels.
HERE’S THE SKINNY ON THE SKYBOX RESTAURANT :
—A one of a kind experience in Dayton, this restaurant is “Vegas Style” in decor, but during live horse race days, the dining room also includes the tables overlooking the horse race track on 3 levels.
— The races are Harness Racing, where the jockeys are behind the horse on a sled with wheels. The horses have to trot and are not allowed to gallop. Getting into the action is CHEAP ! You can bet as little as $2 on a race and you can use electronic betting machines near your table or place your bet at the nearby betting window with an employee.
— Live Harness Racing season ends at Dayton Raceway on December 30, 2017 for a few months.
Mondays & Tuesdays: The first race begins at 2:15pm
Thursdays , Friays & Saturdays: The first race begins at 6:15pm
Here is the racing calendar for 2017. Call 937-235-7840 for restaurant reservations overlooking the track with a spectacular view.
— Typical hours for the Skybox Restaurant on non-racing days are
Sunday thru Thursday 11AM-9PM and Friday & Saturday 11am – Midnight
— The restaurant is casual American Pub Fare with a couple of local beers on tap, but mostly bottled beers in stock.
— Each month they have a dinner special of the month, December is Steak and Shrimp for $12.99
— Wednesday is trivia at 7pm with special appetizers and everyday they offer 4 domestic bottles in a bucket for $12 or a Birdie Bucket with 10 wings for $18.
Now you are at the party spot, but what are you gonna eat? Well, luckily the Food Adventure Crew has been to the restaurant about 10 times and tried everything on the menu. As always, over the couple years we have developed our “MUST EATS” at the Skybox Bar and Restaurant.. so here we go …
MUST EATS at the SKYBOX SPORTS BAR at HOLLYWOOD GAMING DAYTON:
— ALL YOU CAN EAT BABY BACK RIBS:
This is typically a monthly special, but anytime they offer the ribs on the menu, you have to grab them. Cooked to perfection, these ribs are slathered in a nice BBQ sauce and melt in your mouth. Fall off the bone? YES and right into your mouth. Ask for napkins, as it is how they say “finger lickin good.”
— THE PRIME RIB DINNER:
This is sometimes a monthly special for $19.99. If you see it on the menu, you must grab one. The dinner is delicious and so are all of the sides offered. Great view, great steak and races? This is the life!
— CHICKEN QUESADILLA:
Want a huge appetizer that you can share? You wont go wrong with this giant, loaded quesadilla with cheese and veggies, even guacamole and sour cream are on the plate. Indulge! Enjoy!
— THE CHEESEBURGER:
Going simple and quick? This is the best bet and grab a homemade soup. Fresh ground chuck, and melted cheese make the sandwich. The condiments are typical and you build your own burger. Just a good solid, no frills option.
— HOMEMADE DAILY SOUPS:
We have had a couple of their soups, and the chefs really know what they are doing. These homemade creations from chili to shrimp and onion soup have been phenomenal. Always something inventive cooking up in the soup world at the Racino !
— DEEP FRIED PICKLE CHIPS:
Sweet, sour and salty, this appetizer is a perfect one to share with the table. The other option is to grab some ranch dip and slay the basket yourself. Either way you win with good, tasty food, even if you lose your horse race bet.
There they are – the MUST EATS you shouldn’t miss at the Dayton Racino.
This is one of the most entertaining Food Adventures you will ever go on.
Not familiar with horse racing?
IT IS EASY to be a part of the action with these few tips.
Here are a couple horse racing tips on us:
1) Bring a pen with you, buy a program, ask them to print out Dayton Raceway only, to save money. Use the pen to take notes and circle your favorite horses. Sometimes betting on the name of the horse works just as good as looking at the stats/odds.
2) Bet $2 on each race, so if there are 10 races, you will only spend $20 on gambling the whole night, and that’s if you lose every race ! If your horse wins, you will be paid out based on the final odds of the horse after all bets were placed. The higher the odds, the more cashola you will be paid!
4) Chances at big wins:
Bet EXACTA and you must pick 2 horses and they must come 1st and 2nd place in the exact order you pick.
Bet TRIFECTA and you must pick the horses that finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the exact order you name. You win some decent money if this happens, so it isn’t easy to do !
5) Get into the race by clapping and whistling and cheering your horse down the stretch…
Some of the more favorite shouts we have over heard are …..
“Come on Now 3, mon now !” (use any number you bet on)
“Tap that animal” a tongue in cheek urge to have the jockey tap the horses butt with the long stick to get him to run faster (we dont condone animal cruelty).
“Ghanan ha wa hooha” – while slapping your program on your knee (this is just what most people do, they yell an incoherent scream and go crazy, we are just trying to fit in and add to the excitement and volume.
7) Watching the races from the table is great, but take about 6 minutes and during one race, walk outside and watch it from the track. You will be about 10 yards from the horses and it gives you a feel for the speed and intensity of these races. There is no other feeling like it.
Thanks for letting us into your electronic device this week.

Aloha! Jax here, from the Food Adventure Crew with our monthly recipe feature.
School may be starting, but we still have plenty of sunshine and summer ahead of us! For many of us, summer means using the grill as much as possible. But if you’re falling into a grilling funk, here’s a fun and delicious recipe that is sure to please a crowd. And while this recipe is for a Hawaiian style pizza, get creative and use the base recipe of grilling the dough as a blank canvas for any type of pizza toppings!
You can also grill the dough ahead of time and either keep in the refrigerator for later or freeze!
When ready to eat, top the grilled dough with your favorite toppings and bake in the oven at 375 for about 15 minutes. This recipe is great for feeding a lot of people. You can lay out tons of topping and let everyone make their own!
Grilled Hawaiian Pizza
Preheat Grill to medium-high heat
Thats not all Food Adventure fans! You gotta have a base sauce for that pizza!
Bourbon Sriracha BBQ Sauce
Bring the onion, garlic and whiskey to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Low heat to a simmer and allow to cook for 10 minutes. Add remaining sauce ingredients to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and allow the mixture to simmer for 20 minutes. Use BBQ sauce in your favorite recipes or as a dip or topping ingredient.
If you prefer a smooth sauce, run the sauce through a sieve or strainer to remove onion and garlic bits.
Store in refrigerator and use within 10-14 days.
(Sauce adapted from: here)
There you have it. A fun summer twist on grilling that is sure to please the masses.
