Sammy’s Pizza – Est. 1954
As World War II soldiers returned home from Italy telling tales of their favorite food, the popularity of pizza in the U.S. grew. Sam Perrella, a former miner who owned a small café in Keewatin, picked up on this growing trend. Having connections in Chicago, Sam visited with some pizza makers and returned home with an idea that sparked and gave birth to what is now Sammy’s Pizza.
In October 1954, armed with enthusiasm and their own secret recipes, Sam and wife, Louise, opened the doors of the first Sammy’s Pizza restaurant in Hibbing, MN. Today, some 63 years, 15 locations and more than 20 million pizzas later, Sammy’s is now in it’s fourth generation of pizza makers, who all use Sam’s original recipes.
In 2015, PMQ Pizza Magazine, the pizza industry’s No. 1 publication, inducted Sammy’s into its Pizza Hall of Fame — which pays tribute to popular pizzerias in business for 50 years or longer.
Sam Perrella III opened Sammy’s Pizza Hermantown in 1991. Owned by the Perrella family, Jeanne, Sam, Tim, Terry, Julie and Jodie, the restaurant may be small in size compared to other Sammy’s restaurants, but it’s just as big in flavor and tradition. Every pizza served uses dough that was made fresh that day, and spices mixed together by Grandma Louise in Hibbing!
