Roots Handmade Pizza was born in the Quad Cities, raised in Chicago. It’s what happened when a bit of hometown nostalgia met our obsession with inventive, made-from-scratch food. Roots is the brainchild of Greg Mohr and Scott Weiner, the duo behind Chicago’s Fifty/50 Restaurant Group. For over a decade, Greg and Scott moved up the ranks of several big-name restaurant groups. In 2008, they struck out on their own with their upscale sports-bar concept, The Fifty/50.
