It is hard to believe that LEDO has been making pizza since 1955. After all, pizza seemed to be a passing trend when a restaurant opened in Adelphi, Maryland.

It is rolled to order with fresh handmade dough topped with the same high quality cheese and the same style tomatoes. It may take a little longer, but it the pizza sure is worth it.

The concept was simple: to provide high quality pasta and Pizza at a great value in a comfortable, family atmosphere.

Word of mouth for Ledo Pizza quickly made LEDO a favorite spot for local residents, the University of Maryland community, and the Washington Senators.

Bobby Allison, “TEX” Clevenger and other members of the New York Yankees and Washington Senators ate at Ledo Pizza Restaurant in the 1950’s.

There are some unique qualities of LEDO Pizza that come from its long history. People often ask why LEDO Pizza is rectangular. The round pizza pans commonly seen today were very new in the fifties. Rectangular baking pans were readily available, hence the square pizza. Since that time, round pans have become the rage as  operators are able to cut costs by giving the appearance of more, while actually offering less. Our thick pepperoni  is also a LEDO Pizza trademark.
