Peter Falzo, Vinnie’s Pan Pizza on The Hot Slice Podcast
On this week’s The Hot Slice Podcast, Executive Editor Denise Greer chats with Peter Falzo, owner of Vinnie’s Pan Pizza in Millburn, New Jersey. Peter created Vinnie’s to honor his uncle who owned a successful pizza restaurant for decades.
Peter shares his story of transforming his own Italian restaurant into a high-demand carryout pizzeria. He details how he created Vinnie’s Pan Pizza brand and vital tenants to allow it to thrive.
Vinnie’s has received high marks locally and nationally for its unique take on pan/bar pie. The pizza garnered such a reputation that Dave Portnoy gave it 8.3 score out of 10 on his Barstools Pizza Review. “This place is going to be electric after I’m done with it,” Portnoy says in the video review. This is great… Wow. I love it 8.3.” The review sparked an infusion of new interest in the pizzeria. Peter reveals what happened at the restaurant after the review and tips for other restaurants who receive a visit from Portnoy.
