Project Description

– The Philadelphia Inquirer– June 28, 2019 –

We lost a favorite family destination when Roma Pizza changed hands this year. But we gained an excellent new pizza option with the first Shore franchise location of Philadelphia’s Santucci’s, whose baked-to-order square pies are definitely something different for a pie scene dominated by giant pre-baked slices. The nine-inch square personal pies take about eight minutes to cook, but it’s worth the wait because you’ll find the same sauce-topped, cheesy-centered, pan-baked-style pizzas as the South Philly mothership, along with stuffed strombolis. Simple toppings (just pepperoni or sausage) are my preference, but “the Works” is also irresistible. There are more seaside Santucci’s to come: A giant new project with a liquor license is in the works for a late-summer opening in Ventnor, and franchisee Marc Bongiovanni suggests that other Shore towns could get Santuccified, too. Santucci’s, 944 Boardwalk, Ocean City, 609-493-7200; santuccispizza.com
