Louis Acerra (Luigi) owned an Italian bakery in Red Bank, and in 1939 he started making pizza and eventually switched his business to pizza full time. The unique pizza was an extra-large “squarish” pizza, crispy thin crust, well done, cheese and sauce right to the edge. The dough formula was handed down over the years to his children and grandchildren.
