Mama Lucia's Pizza
"Taste is the true test.....and a matter of family honor"
It began as a labor of love, Mama Lucia Tumminello otherwise known
as "Mama Lucia" baked homemade pizza for her children on "The Hill",
St. Louis' famous Italian neighborhood. When she baked pizza for
the family, it wasn't just dinner, it was an event. The pizza was
so popular that other families asked her to make extra pizzas for
their enjoyment. As word spread, the demand grew and Lucia's Pizza
had been discovered.
Even though she has traded her oven in the bungalow for big, new
kitchens, she hasn't altered her homemade recipe, she simply hired
more cooks. The family's hard work and determination has brought
Lucia's Pizza from Mama's kitchen to a legendary pizza business.
Mama Lucia's founding principal was people are willing to pay for an
honest, well-topped homemade tasting pizza, and she was right!
Lucia's has shown steady growth since the day it was founded in 1981
and is now a regular item in some 300 St. Louis area supermarkets
and convenience stores. It is the number one "Off-Sale" frozen
pizza in the market.
