"we moved to Ashland after we sold Martolli's pizza in Sisters. we were drawn to ashland."
Mark Hedford, co-owner of Martolli's Hand-tossed Pizza
Mark and Brad grew up in Portland and worked together gourmet pizza restaurant as teenagers. Both dreamed of owning their own shop someday. After high school, their paths took different directions. Mark attended Oregon State University and Brad left the Portland area to work, and travel. Brad helped open and manage several restaurants in Crested Butte, Maui, Portland, and in Bend and Mark completed his degree. Their mutual love for skiing and the outdoors lead them both to Bend, Oregon in the early 1990’s, where they followed their dream of opening their own pizza shop.
After owning a Martolli’s location in Sisters, Oregon for nearly a decade, Mark and Brad opened Martolli’s Plaza location in February of 2010. They were drawn to the arts and culture, outdoor opportunities and college feel of Ashland.
"We offer whole pizzas and pizza by the slice. We prepare our yeast dough’s from scratch, along with our homemade pizza sauces and salad dressings. We use the freshest and highest quality cheeses and grate them daily. We use local in-season vegetables when available and organic salad fixings. We have a wide and changing variety of beer on tap, wines by the bottle or glass, and unique non-alcoholic beverages. We admire great music and enjoy discussing live music and concerts." Patrons can’t help but enjoy the restaurants walls, which are decorated with local art, old band photos, and posters of concerts we’ve attended and some we have just dreamt of.
Martolli’s supports local schools and enjoys being active members of the community. The atmosphere at Martolli’s is inviting for friends, families, visitors, locals and those who appreciate good music and quality pizza. We are excited to further our relationship with the Ashland community via our second location and are thankful to be able to keep doing what we love.
