Proud TRADITION, a unique PRODUCT and delicious PIZZA! The story of DiCarlo's Pizza can be told based on these three words, which has captured the heart of the family's philosophy for nearly 100 years. In the early 1900's, Michael and Caroline DiCarlo owned and operated an Italian grocery store in Steubenville, Ohio and later extended their endeavors into the bakery business, which lead to the birth of the one and only Original DiCarlo's Famous Bread! Michael and Caroline who had immigrated from Sora, Italy, along with their 6 children ran all facets of their business enterprises.

World War II

Returning home to Steubenville from serving in World War II, Michael and Caroline's oldest son Primo described a dish that was popular in Italy. It was a delicacy consisting of crispy bread covered with sauce and cheese and it had been sold in many of the Italian cafes. His ingenious idea would eventually lead to the grand opening of the very first Original DiCarlo's Famous Pizza Shop located at 146 South 3rd Street in Steubenville Ohio in 1945.

Two Brothers

In 1949, Primo along with little brother Galdo DiCarlo would together as partners open the second shop in Wheeling West Virginia at 14th and South Main Street. During the next 3 decades, this famous recipe would spread throughout the Ohio Valley with shops popping up in eastern parts of Ohio, Glen Dale, Elm Grove and Wellsburg West Virginia and as far as Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and surrounding areas.

Galdo DiCarlo passed away January 9th 1994 but shortly before his death in May of 1993 he had acquired the trademark. It wasn't until several years later and with the efforts of his daughter Toni DiCarlo that Original DiCarlo's Pizza would become an official franchise and have the mobility to move outside the Ohio Valley opening stores in Columbus, Ohio and Parkersburg West Virginia.

Today

Today, that distinctive square shaped crispy crust along with its delicious signature sauce, fresh cheese and pepperoni is still the benchmark of DiCarlo's Original Pizza. DiCarlo's Pizza is successfully going into the future by honoring the traditions of the past as well as keeping the investment as low as possible. We will continue to use the same famous recipe and strict standards to keep the legacy of DiCarlo's Pizza as an invaluable asset to any prospective business partner.
