Rock 'n Dough Pizza To Open Restaurant in East Memphis

Jeremy Denno, who also manages Trolley Stop Market, is heading east.

Rock ‘n Dough Pizza Co., the much loved pizza truck operated by Jeremy and Amanda Denno, is opening a brick and mortar restaurant in East Memphis.


The couple is refurbishing the former location of YoLo Frozen Yogurt next to Amerigo Italian Restaurant on Ridgeway Road and hopes to be ready for business by the first of the year. Look for pizza by the slice with quality toppings, along with lunch-time combos including a slice, salad and drink.


“Our focus will be the same,” Jeremy Denno said. “A little funky, locally-sourced ingredients and prices that are fair.”


Denno intends the restaurant to be a friendly, family affair.


“We’re keeping it simple,” he said. “Fresh-squeezed juices, great pizza and a personable kind of place where everyone knows everyone else.”


The couple still plans to open a late-night pizza pop-up behind Trolley Stop Market downtown, but cleaning up and securing the property has taken time and money, Denno said.


“We’ll get to it,” he said. “We need a secure place to park the trucks.”
