The Pizza Snob’s excitement last year about real New York-style pizza finally coming to the Redneck Riviera was short-lived. Unfortunately, after only a single season, Luigi from Connecticut has shut down Peppinos Pizzeria & Ice Cream Shop.
In the dark until my recent annual beach vacation with Ms. Pie, my anticipation of seeing a “Peppino’s” sign hanging out front this year ended with the sad sight of a Mexican Restaurant where the pizza joint once stood.
Prior to Peppino’s, another pie-maker, Pizza Nona, occupied this same space, also for a lone season. Here’s a pictorial history of the location over the last three years.
I hope that Luigi is still making great pizza somewhere. Maybe another budding entrepreneur from the Northeast will come down to once again make some real authentic pizza on the Gulf.
