Voting Home / Santucci Square Pizza
Nominated for: BEST Pizza
Joseph Santucci, Sr. and his wife, Philomena are truly two visionary people who revolutionized the pizza industry for all time. Their most famous creation: Santucci Square Pizza. Buy increasing the size of the baking pan to a full 12 x 18 inches, Joe and Philomena were on their way to a taste sensation. Next, they combined the most superior seasonings to produce their famous Santucci sauce. Instead of placing in underneath the layer of grated cheese like most other pizzerias they took the finest 100% whole milk mozzarella cheese, sliced it and placed it directly on the dough and placed the sauce on top. Then, to remove any acidity in the sauce and to melt the cheese they raised the oven temperature from the standard 300 degrees to 550 degrees. The result? A revolutionary product that began to make history.
