Tony Sacco’s was started in Estero, Florida in 2008 by three friends from Michigan: Chuck Senatore, George Kurajian and Tony Sacco. The trio wanted to bring back the original taste and quality of pizza as it was made in those first authentic pizzerias from New York dating all the way back to the early 1900’s. It was from a time when pizza just tasted better. Genuine coal fired ovens, homemade sauce & dough, as well as fresh hand-cut toppings that created a taste unlike any other.
This is what they wanted, an authentic original coal oven pizza. A subtle smokey yet crisp tasting crust. To achieve this required designing a special custom-made 7,000 lb. coal burning oven. It’s the same oven as what was used in Italy dating back more than 500 years ago where it all first started. At Tony Sacco’s there are NO FREEZERS, FRYERS, GRILLS or MICROWAVE OVENS. Everything is made fresh daily to order and baked in our coal fired oven.
When making a pizza, there is no substitute for using the best ingredients. At Tony Sacco’s we start with freshly made dough. Next is our authentic sauce made from olive oil, fresh basil and ground tomatoes. Then only the finest quality cheeses and toppings. The real secret is drawing out all the flavors by going back to where it began – the coal oven. The coal oven was the mainstay of the early pizza restaurants in New York and the Northeast. It is now experiencing a resurgence thanks to the influence of Tony Sacco’s Coal Oven Kitchen. The friends had succeeded in bringing back authentic coal oven pizza… that just tastes better.
