When the company talks about tradition, it has a lot to talk about. The history of the Toarmina family is virtually the history of the company itself. When the first generation American Santa Toarmina (Grandmother to the company founder) arrived in Detroit, Michigan she discovered that Americans had a different taste for pizza. She had found that a sweeter sauce better suited the American palate. Today, Toarmina’s pizza still utilizes Grandma Toarmina’s dough recipe, and a sweet sauce is still the quickest way to the American heart. This is the foundation of a Toarmina’s Pizza.
