Youngstown’s Pizza Tradition
Youngstown’s pizza roots stretch back to the turn of the last century, when Italian immigrants began to arrive in the city and settle mostly in the Brier Hill neighborhood. In fact, Brier Hill even lends its name to Youngstown’s own unique pizza – a pie with red sauce, green peppers, and romano cheese!
Since then, great pizza has become inscribed into the culinary consciousness of Youngstown, Ohio and America. When locals who have moved away are asked what they miss about Youngstown, the typical first response is, “the pizza!” Why such a response, you ask? Because, the Youngstown area is fortunate to have some of the finest pizza places in the country!
