It's ALL IN THE STUFFING: The history of Nancy’s Pizza dates back to 1971 when Italian immigrants, Nancy and Rocco Palese, opened their first pizza parlor, Guy’s Pizza, in Chicago. Rocco modeled his pizza style after his mother’s recipe for ‘scarciedda,’ an Easter specialty cake.
The end result was the first stuffed pizza in America, which is now a staple in the pizza industry. The invention and success of the stuffed pizza led to the opening of Rocco’s new restaurant in 1974, Nancy’s Pizza in Harwood Heights, IL. This was the first of many Nancy’s Pizza locations.
City Block managed Nancy’s Pizza’s social media pages in 2017 and currently consults on social strategy as needed.
