OTTO South End is now open!

We are pleased to announce that our new South End location is officially open!

Conveniently located at the corner of Harrison and Washington (345 Harrison Ave.), across from The Ink Block and Whole Foods, and easily accessible from the Red, Orange, and Silver Lines, this new location will provide the busy South End neighborhood easy access to enjoy one of the best pizzas in the USA (Food Network).

Along with traditional takeout service, OTTO South End features a slice counter, indoor and outdoor seating, and catering services. This location will also feature our mobile pickup option, allowing customers to order any menu item (including single slices, whole pies, salads, apps, desserts, and beverages) and skip the wait entirely by grabbing their order from one of our heated mobile pickup stations.

OTTO South End will be OTTO’s 10th location in Massachusetts, and 17th overall. We are looking forward to being a part of the vibrant South End community.

In addition to our ongoing partnership with Cooking Matters MA to combat food insecurity, the OTTO South End location will also be participating in the Tips For Kids initiative started at our Southie location, where each tip will support children’s organizations in the community.

Come by, enjoy a slice and say hello. We can’t wait to serve you!

OTTO Pizza Dough now available at Whole Foods

We are excited to announce that OTTO Pizza Dough is now available for purchase at Whole Foods locations throughout New England, New York, and New Jersey!

OTTO Pizza Dough is vegan, and made with organic flour, organic extra virgin olive oil, organic evaporated cane sugar, untreated purified sea salt and yeast — and made from scratch daily.

Our dough is the most important ingredient we work with — it’s the defining foundation of every OTTO pie. In 2016, our Master Baker, Alex Castiello, joined our team and we opened our dough facility in Lynn, Massachusetts — today it’s operated by his team, which includes a fourth generation of baking Castiellos, his sons Jared and Julian.

Through a rigorous process of developing, testing, and sampling, Alex and his team were able to ensure that the texture, crust, and flavor is always of the highest quality and consistent across all locations. We’ve applied that same commitment to perfection to our first retail product. We hope you enjoy it.

Click here to learn more about OTTO Pizza Dough, including an instructional video, nutritional information, and organic certifications. We are looking forward to hearing about (and seeing!) your OTTO At Home pizza creations. Share them with us via Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter!

2020: A Year of Giving Back


There’s really no other way to put it; 2020 has been a trying year for all — a year of uncertainty, social upheaval, and unprecedented change in how we live our daily lives. Our friends, families and communities have all been affected in some way. While we could go on and on about the challenges of this year, we’d like to reflect on a few of the positives.

Giving back has always been a part of the OTTO culture. In the past, we’ve donated to countless organizations in our communities through fundraisers, in-kind donations, and of course, pizza. The nature of this year forced us to restructure our entire giving program. With schools closed for much of the year and fundraisers canceled due to gathering restrictions, we had to rethink our entire Good Food, Good Cause initiative.

Of course, we had no plans to stop giving back to our communities. More than ever, our communities needed our help. Fortunately, we were able to partner with two amazing organizations in Maine and Massachusetts that directly align with our mission – to end child hunger and provide better access to food in the communities we do business in, and beyond. Starting in March of 2020, we began donating $1 from every monthly special pie sold to these organizations.

In Massachusetts, we partnered with Cooking Matters MA – an organization which helps connect families with affordable and nutritious meal options. “Cooking Matters is helping end childhood hunger by inspiring families to make healthy, affordable food choices. [Their] programs teach parents and caregivers with limited food budgets to shop for and cook healthy meals.” $1 of each monthly special pie sold from our Massachusetts locations goes to Cooking Matters MA. This year, we have donated over $7,000 directly to the organization.

In Maine, we’re working with Full Plates Full Potential as one of their FEED Kids partners. Full Plates, Full Potential is an organization dedicated to ending child hunger in Maine. “[Their] work focuses on increasing participation in school breakfast, after school meals, and summer meal programs.” We’ve donated $1 of each monthly special sold from our Maine locations to Full Plates Full Potential since March. This has allowed us to donate over $8,000 directly to the organization.

Another group that’s been severely strained by this pandemic is healthcare workers. They have gone through extraordinary efforts to heal and protect their patients and our communities, working tirelessly around the clock dealing with scenarios that many of us cannot imagine. In April, we decided to get on board with an initiative called Feeding the Frontline – a donation-based framework that supports both restaurants and frontline workers during the COVID-19 crisis. Through purchasing gift cards or meals from participating businesses, those working on the frontlines are provided with nourishment to help fuel them through their shifts.

We had no idea what to expect at the start, but we quickly learned that our customers enthusiastically wanted to be a part of this effort. To date, we’ve received over $40,000 in customer contributions that we’ve turned into countless orders, feeding thousands of healthcare workers and first responders. We are both amazed and extremely humbled by the support we’ve received, and can tell you first hand how appreciative our healthcare heroes have been to benefit from this program. Below are a few of the facilities we’ve made deliveries to as a part of this initiative:

  • Maine Medical Center
  • Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
  • Boston Children’s Hospital
  • Massachusetts General Hospital
  • South Portland Fire Department – First Responders
  • Tufts Medical Center
  • Maine General Hospital
  • Lynnfield Fire Department – First Responders
  • Anna Jacques Hospital
  • Boston Medical Center
  • Beverly Hospital
  • Melrose Wakefield Hospital
  • Franciscan Hospital – Brighton
  • Maine’s Midcoast Hospital
  • Mount Auburn Hospital
  • Emerson Hospital
  • Lahey Hospital & Medical Center

With all of that said, we have to give a big shout out to our customers. The programs and initiatives above would not be possible without your support. While many of us have spent much of the year in relative isolation, the power of community has never been more evident. As we reflect on this difficult year, we are incredibly thankful for our staff, our customers, our partners and our communities. We wish each of you a healthy and happy holiday season, and look forward to seeing your smiling faces in the new year.

OTTO Andover opens Dec 2!

We’re pleased to announce the opening of the brand new Andover OTTO on Tuesday, December 2.

Located in the heart of bustling downtown Andover at 27 Main Street, directly across from the old Town Hall, OTTO’s newest location will open 11am on Tuesday for takeout and delivery orders.

Featuring a walk-up service window and delivery throughout Andover, OTTO provides several convenient options for folks on the run. Customers may order ahead and skip the wait with Mobile Pickup or Touchless delivery, both great options during this time.

While OTTO Andover boasts a spacious dining area and a full bar featuring 12 taps of the best regional craft beer, dine-in service will not be offered initially due to the current COVID crisis. (Stay tuned!)

Guests will find plenty of free parking in the lot behind the location (parking entrances are located at Chestnut or Central Streets).

We look forward to being part of the Andover community, and we look forward to serving you soon!
