Why Upper West Side's Legendary Sal and Carmine Pizza Started Delivering After 56 Years

Sal and Carmine Pizza is a 56-year old Upper West Side pizza legend, known for fresh, jumbo sized slices of classic style, New York cheese pizza.

In this short video from 1 Minute Meal, we hear directly from the current owner, Sal’s grandson Lou Gaudiosi, on why he is only now starting delivering pies.

When Lou Gaudiosi announced that his family’s legendary pizzeria, Sal and Carmine, would begin delivering pies to the neighborhood, he broke one of his late grandfather’s golden rules. He also took responsibility for keeping the business alive, carrying on his grandfather’s craft by adapting to the realities of a New York slice business that isn’t what it used to be.
