The revered pizzeria was born from the idea that an extraordinary pizza requires the utmost attention to detail and the finest ingredients. Mister O1 uses only the freshest ingredients with most being sourced from Italy or from local vendors.
Founder and Master Pizza Chef, Renato Viola was raised in Southern Italy where he developed a passion for cooking at a young age; by 11 years old he was apprenticing with some of Italy’s best chefs.
Viola moved to Miami under the O1 Visa category, reserved for those with “extraordinary artistic ability” of internationally acclaimed fame and opened the first location of Mister O1 in 2014 and has since grown to 13 locations. In 2021, the concept was named “best pizza” in Florida in Food & Wine.
The first Dallas store opened Fall 2022 in Turtle Creek Shopping Village and the second location opened in Grapevine in Spring 2023 under the direction of local Franchise Partner, John LaBarge. As a Dallas local, he is thrilled to bring a third Mister O1 to yet another home in the area.
LaBarge says of opening in Mansfield “The Mansfield community is thriving, and we feel Mister O1 is going to be a great addition to the area. We hope to become a go-to spot for those working and living in Mansfield,” He continues, “The success of our other locations in DFW has proven that our family-friendly restaurant is not just a destination to dine, but for extraordinary experiences.”
Mister O1’s acclaimed menu presents an array of extraordinary pizzas characterized by a delicate thin-crust style, with an exceptionally light dough that undergoes a minimum 72-hour preparation and resting period before being served.
Traditional pizza combinations are served as well as recipes unique to Mister O1 such as the Star Beckham – star shaped pizza filled with ricotta cheese, mozzarella, bacon, onions, fresh tomatoes, ranch dressing, basil; Coffee Paolo – Italian tomato sauce, mozzarella, gorgonzola blue cheese, natural honey, coffee, spicy salami calabrese; Elisa – mozzarella, ricotta cheese, natural honey, black pepper and white truffle oil; and Star Luca – star shaped pizza filled with ricotta cheese, spicy salami calabrese, mozzarella, Italian tomato sauce, basil.
Select calzones, salads, antipasti and dessert pizzas will also be available. In addition to the food menu, Mister O1 offers red, white and sparkling Italian wines by the glass and bottle as well as the well-known Italian beer, Peroni.
