Pizza is a family affair for me. My Uncle Angelo arrived in America in the 1930s with a passion for pizza. He worked hard and eventually bought his own pizzeria in Brooklyn. It was there that Uncle Angelo invented a recipe for coal oven pizza. That recipe has been perfected over 60 years and passed down through the generations.
My brothers and cousins in New York know the recipe. Diners at Patsy’s, Nick’s and Angelo’s have enjoyed their pizzas, pastas and salads for years. Here in Philadelphia and New Jersey, you can feast on my Uncle Angelo’s secret recipe dishes at our three Pietro’s locations: 1714 Walnut Street and 121 South Street, and 140 W. Route 70 in New Jersey.
