and Named Finalist in Worldwide Culinary Competition

International Pizza Expo Southwest Winner Saccone's Pizza & Subs, Austin, TX

Austin, TX – May 20, 2014  – It won’t come as a surprise to the legions of loyal fans of Saccone’s Pizza & Subs, but rest of the world recently experienced what we in Austin have known for over 17 years.

Owner Daniel Saccone nabbed top honors and was proclaimed best pizza in the Southwest Region of the United States.  In addition, Saccone was named one of eight finalists in the 2014 International Pizza Expo competition.

Saccone, a New Jersey native who has delighted Austin pizza lovers since 1997 with his “Pizza with a New Jersey attitude”, won Best Traditional Pizza in the Southwest Region and was one of 8 finalists for Best Traditional Pizza in the World, and was in second place going into the finals.

Saccone’s famous “Signature Sauce” pizza has won many steadfast fans in the Central Texas area. The judges were also impressed.  The World Pizza Games is the largest competition of its type in the world.  A victory at the event highlights the quality of the pizza and the pizza maker.

Saccone’s Pizza recently started a joint venture with River Place Country Club bringing the award-winning favorite to the Four Points Area. Saccone shared, “Every ingredient, from the dough, to the signature sauce, is made to my exact specs, and I couldn’t be more impressed with the pies that we’re making here at River Place.  Due to the growing traffic in the Four Points area, it’s been difficult serving our loyal customers who live here, and I’m extremely pleased to be partnering with River Place and The Dominion Golf Group in this venture.”

Saccone adds, “Being in a competition like the World Pizza Games is a great way to ‘put your money where your mouth is.’  The prestige of winning gives you ‘real’ bragging rights!”  Congratulations to the entire Saccone’s team on representing the diverse Austin pizza scene on the international level.

    Congratulations. You’re the only real deal in the region anymore. Well that’s not quite true.
    Hoboken Pie is the real deal – real authentically bad NJ pizza.

    I only wish you had a store closer in to the center of the city. 36 mile roundtrip for pizza is a helluva haul. With my crappy mileage, that’s a 5 dollar surcharge. And worth every penny.
