Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This pizza recipe was passed down in the Petrella family. Apollo (Paul) Petrella was just 19 when he came to America and settled in West Warwick RI. He owned a bakery and his pizza recipe was passed down to his only son Antimo. Antimo (cheif) became famous for his delious pizza and made it often for his family. He as his father before him always made a cross in the dough befor letting it rise.
