Taranto's Pizzeria Polaris

Orange Celebration's Featured Supporter

Taranto's Pizzeria was founded on Super Bowl Sunday in the winter of 2000.  Even after all these years, we still make our own fresh dough and special pizza sauce daily. We received the honor of "best in the Midwest", and the "international pizza award" in Las Vegas, and even voted "best pizza" at Olentangy Orange High School.  

I grew up in the area and my family made Orange Township our home.  I have strong ties and love for the Orange community and hope you love my "hometown pizzeria" as much as I do bring it to you.  Be sure to try our new cauliflower and gluten free crusts and other NEW MENU ITEMS!  You'll love it!

Igniting Souls Conference (October 25–27, 2019), October 25, Hilton Columbus PolarisSince the beginning of time, we’ve been gazing at our neighbor’s lawn, trying to see whose grass is greener. Thanks to the internet we now have access to billions of backyards—at all hours of the day and night. But grass is no longer the focus. We’ve migrated to followers, dollars, and views.  Comparison is a popular blood sport, making causalities of us all. Our competition isn’t found in the marketplace. It’s found in the mirror. We don’t need to change the world. We need to change ourselves. And somewhere in the process, we’ll end up changing both.  You’ve been created to create, and it’s time to admit that you’re in a race of one. Marathons and mountaintops share one thing in common. Both are reached by taking YOUR NEXT BEST STEP.  LEARN MORE
