GAPCo’s Mexican pizza.

Devour this news: Two East Dallas pizzerias are considered some of the hottest independent pizza places in the country.

Pizza Today, a national industry magazine dedicated to helping restaurant owners grow their independent or franchised pizzeria, named Cane Ross and Greenville Avenue Pizza Company to its Hot 100 Independent Pizzerias list.

“The list is a testament to the ingenuity, diligence and skill of the pizzeria owners who make the grade,” according to the rank.

GAPCo came in at No. 61 after appearing on the list at No. 95 a few years ago.

“Pizza Today’s 2018 Young Entrepreneur of the Year Sammy Mandell keeps taking his pizzeria to new heights with over $4 million in annual sales with its two Dallas units,” the magazine wrote.

Cane Rosso was ranked No. 3.

Since opening in 2011 in Deep Ellum, the wood-fired Neapolitan pizzeria has eight locations, including one at 7328 Gaston Ave.

It garners more than $18.6 million in annual sales and has been listed among Eater’s 38 Essential Pizzerias in America and The Daily Meal’s 101 Best Pizza Places in America.
