Demarco Jenkins is making some of the BEST pizza in the Houston area at his restaurant, d' Marcos Pizzeria located in Sugar Land. Originally a Chicago native, Demarco relocated to Houston for work in 2012. He soon discovered he was unable to find the type of pizza he was accustomed to eating back home. So for anyone that's ever been to Chicago, you know exactly what he's talking about. Demarco reached out to his favorite pizza place in Chicago, Mama Rigetta's. He learned they were closing their doors and was graciously gifted all their secret recipes.
d' Marcos Pizzeria uses only the freshest ingredients on their pizzas. The thin crust pizza is baked in a pan so it's crispy and firm enough to support all those tasty toppings. My favorite is their deep dish pizza. It has a flaky, buttery crust that holds in mounds of cheese, pepperoni, sausage, and chunky marinara. For a unique twist, try chicken sausage on your pizza. It has all the flavor of the Italian sausage, but with a lighter taste. It's also a wonderful alternative for those that don't eat pork.
Demarco has entered his delicious pizzas in many competitions, including the NAPIC, North American Pizza and Ice Cream Show and the International Pizza Expo. At a recent media tasting, I had the privilege of trying several pizzas that Demarco was entering into competition and they were all amazing. Mama Rigetti only made one request when she gifted Demarco her recipes and that was to make her proud. This family man is doing just that.
d' Marcos Pizzeria will also be participating in the inaugural launch of Houston Black Restaurant Week (#HOUBRW) which runs April 3 - 10, 2016. Diners can choose a $20 lunch menu or $25/$35 dinner menu with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Change Happens.
