John & John’s in Sodo

By Cassady Quintana

Located adjacent to downtown Orlando in the Sodo District, a slice of New York-style pizza waits for you at John & John's Pizza. Taking over where Mediterranean Blue once stood, this pizzeria has quickly grown into a local favorite, offering an array of flavors and a family-like atmosphere. outside of john & johns
