Gio Italian Grill has won the 2012 Lehigh Valley Style Decadent Dish award for Favorite Pizza!
Have you checked out this month’s issue of Lehigh Valley Style? If you did, you already know that they love our pizza! If not, here’s what they had to say:
It starts with hand tossed dough made from 100-percent wheat flour imported from Italy. Then it’s topped with San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and basil. And that’s just the plain pizza at Gio Italian Grill. Owners Tony and Giovanna DiMaio know a thing or two about creating the perfect pie. Both were involved in family restaurants and born to Sicilian parents. They’re a couple who love food and sharing it with their neighbors and friends. After cooking alongside chefs in Palermo, Sicily, Tony returned home (with recipes in hand) and began his search for a high quality brick oven like the ones he encountered in the old world-style of cooking. He found an open flame hearth, while Giovanna imported authentic ingredients and wines, and the rest is history. Together, they’ve created an irresistible marriage of crispy thin crust and savory toppings you know were combined with love. Perhaps that’s why the Salami picante, homemade sausage, hot pepper and fresh mozzarella pizza is called the Giovanna.
Thank to everyone who voted for us! We are proud to make the Lehigh Valley’s favorite pizza.
