The first Blue Highway Pizzeria was founded in 2004 in Micanopy, Florida by Frank Ruffino. “I wanted something casual that people would enjoy and eat all the time.”

Mr. Ruffino found this little beat-up place that was the former Witts Inn, 12 miles south of Gainesville on U.S. 441.The Ruffino’s secured the old building, gutted it and that was the birth of Blue Highway Pizzeria, a family-run business with his wife Winny, his son and daughter.

The Ruffino’s pride themselves on using local fresh and organic ingredients whenever possible and making affordable dishes from scratch. “To be able to create a great pizza, that’s a beautiful thing.”
