Tony Sacco’s Coal Oven Pizza AT A GLANCE

Tony Sacco’s was started in Estero, Florida by three friends from Michigan: Chuck Senatore, George Kurajian and Tony Sacco. Their mission was to bring back the original taste and quality of pizza the way it was made when the first pizzerias were opened in the early 1900′s. This required the use of a coal burning oven, homemade sauce and dough, and fresh, hand-cut toppings. In the fall of 2018 Tony Sacco’s Brand became part of Dynamic Restaurant Holdings, LLC. Dynamic Restaurant Holdings, LLC is a Restaurant Umbrella Group of multiple brands position across the Mid-West and Southeast.

By combining their years of restaurant experience and using old family recipes, they have claimed success! Everything we serve is prepared fresh daily. We have NO FREEZERS, FRYERS, GRILLS or MICROWAVE OVENS. Everything we make is made fresh to order and baked in our coal oven.

When making a pizza, there is no substitute for using the best ingredients. At Tony Sacco’s we start with freshly made dough and the finest quality cheeses and toppings. But 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 and is experiencing a resurgence thanks to Tony Sacco’s Coal Oven Pizza.
