If you are looking for Pizza Paradise, look no further than Oxford, Mississippi.

On Saturday morning, a new pizza and ice cream eatery called Pizza Paradise & Ice Cream will open its doors on University Avenue in the same storefront where Little Caesar’s Pizza was located before it closed its door in April.

The new pizza restaurant will open at 10 a.m. on Saturday for the first time, offering the first 30 people 50% off their orders.

The restaurant is owned by Adam Malhotra. He brought the concept to Oxford from California where his uncle owns the family’s other Pizza Paradise.

He leased the location shortly after Little Caesar’s closed.

Pizza Paradise will offer pizzas with all of the traditional toppings. However, Malhotra said what makes his pizza special is the sauce.

“It’s made in Italy,” he said. “You can’t even get that in the United States. That’s what most attracts our customers. It’s called Pizza Paradise Sauce.”

There will be 16 flavors of ice cream to choose from with dozens of toppings. They are also serving bread sticks, mocktails and coffee.

“We will have soft-serve ice cream as well,” he said. “We will have better pizza and better prices than everybody.”

Pizza Paradise will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.

Delivery will be available through Uber Eats, Take a Break Delivery and DoorDash.

The new eatery is also hiring. Interested folks can send their resume to Pizzaparadiseoxford@gmail.com or call 662-934-3162 for more information.
