Our Story

Pizza was a relatively new concept in 1950’s America, but Round Table Pizza founder Bill Larson was quick to see the potential.  In 1959, the first Round Table Pizza was opened in Menlo Park, CA, and saw success by placing the emphasis on creating a gathering place where you could “share a little pizza with someone you love.”

Since the beginning, Round Table has been the place for family gatherings: where the kids could have fun while Mom and Dad enjoyed a beer and waited for their freshly baked pizza. 


Made from scratch daily

Our founder believed in using gold-standard ingredients and time honored recipes to bake handcrafted pizza worth sharing. Today, we pay homage to Bill’s vision by continuing to use only superior ingredients in our pizzas, along with many of his original recipes.

We’ve stuck to dough made from scratch and rolled fresh daily, along with hand-sliced vegetables, high quality meats, and real cheese in our three-cheese blend of whole milk mozzarella, smoked provolone, and aged cheddar. And as always, our toppings go all the way to the edge of the crust.

At the same time, we are refreshing our brand look – from the logo to the store design itself – to better reflect the extraordinary pizza we bake, and the dreams of our founder. We are the premier West Coast pizza franchise with over 410+ restaurants open and under development in California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii. For more than a half-century, we’ve become the go-to place for generations of families to celebrate birthdays and other milestones.

Round Table has a storied history, with decades of memories made within our walls. Our new restaurant design acknowledges all that came before, while boldly stepping into the present – providing a contemporary dining experience for friends and family to enjoy today and tomorrow. This isn’t the Round Table from the year 1250, or 1959, or 1985. It’s a reimagined space that combines medieval with modernity. What better setting to experience Pizza Royalty?
