pizza is everything.

It all started when Ryan was 15 and took an entry-level position at a small pizzeria in Sanford, FL doing prep work and dishes. Things changed 6 months later when the pizzeria was in a pinch and needed a pizza guy to step in and make pies on a busy Friday night. Passion and a devoted interest for the pizza industry quickly emerged! After working at several pizzerias and learning about the endless possibilities in the pizza world, Ryan competed in his first acrobatic dough tossing competition in 2007 and won a gold medal in Orlando. He has been a member of the United States Pizza Team and the World Pizza Champions. Ryan has shared his passion for pizza around the country and has performed in acrobatic and culinary competitions both nationally and internationally in France and Italy.


He is now excited to share his passion with you at Leone's! 

Owner and head chef, ryan larose, has devoted his career to creating the pizza you crave and go home talking about. The kind that brings people together.
