  • It typically takes 6 different craftsmen to make a Giordano’s pizza.
  • It’s a 10-step process and butter is heavily involved in several.
  • They’re famous for cheese pulls – where the server pulls the first slice as far as it can stretch without breaking off – they’ve gotten pulls up to 4 feet long.
