Pinellas Pizzeria Wins Best Pizza in the Cabbies!
In 2021, Gregg Procaccini and Michael Dobson (co-owners) decided to open up shop, Pinellas Pizzeria! “My parents and uncle owned pizza restaurants going back to the late 60s in Connecticut. I had a pizza shop in Manchester, CT for 14 years and sold it in October of 2021 to start a pizza shop in Florida. I contacted my friend Michael Dobson (chef) whom I’ve known since high school and asked him if he wanted to head south to be a partner in a pizza shop and here, we are,” stated Gregg Procaccini.
Pinellas Pizzeria was one of 24 nominees in the category “Best Pizza”, so to win and beat out 23 other local pizza shops in the area is a big deal! They offer more than just pizza too! Some other items on their menu include grinders (hoagies/subs), dinners, beer & wine. They offer dine-in, take-out, and delivery through their website or other delivery apps.
Their pizza is unique and is what sets them apart from competitors. It’s not a thin or deep dish, they also twice-bake their pizzas, meaning they put fresh raw items on them, cook them for 7 or 8 minutes, take them out of the oven and then put the mozzarella on them and finish cooking it. Their dinners are prepared by a chef who knows how to get the most flavor and has a nice presentation.
At Pinellas Pizzeria you can always expect a friendly and personable experience. It’s part of what makes them the best! They love chatting with their customers and getting to know the people that come in and out of their business. Part of being such a successful business in such a short amount of time stems from creating relationships with customers and making them feel good every time they come in. That is something Pinellas Pizzeria has mastered, as well as making a dang good pizza!
When asked what his favorite part of going to work every day was, “It’s a good feeling knowing that our establishment is doing well considering we are opening in tough times. We love feeding the locals!” said Gregg excitedly.
“What Does Winning the Cabbies Mean to You?”
“It’s amazing that we, in such a short, time built up a clientele that was already dedicated enough to vote for us. It feels like we’re at home here! Don’t settle, eat happily!” said Gregg.
If you haven’t done so already, be sure to stop in and visit Pinellas Pizzeria for a fantastic dining experience and… the BEST PIZZA! Be sure to check out their social media for more information!
