Joe Santucci’s Original Square Pizza
It all started in 1959 with the drive and love of the late Joseph N. Santucci and his wife Philomena for Old World Tradition. Remember the many renowned local Italian bakery shops that lined the streets of Philadelphia in the 1950s. It was a revolutionary idea by Joe Santucci to serve the legendary square dough creation topped with homemade tomato gravy. He would soon transform this neighborhood specialty into something uniquely his own.
