Pizza King (Lawrence, MA)

IMG_9807A welcoming gateway to the city of Lawrence, the bold red and white letters spelling P-I-Z-Z-A K-I-N-G  (Corner of Salem and Loring Streets) break the monotony of the dull urban backdrop. For over 4 decades, those seeking sustenance in the form of cornmeal crusted-pizza or delicious meat pies have been beating a path to this comforting landmark. The Sapienza family brought the business to Lawrence in 1966 from its original location on Revere Beach. The reigning Pizza King, John Sapienza made his first pizza at the age of 9, it took him an hour. Now able to make a pie in one minute with both eyes closed, Mr. Sapienza keeps ‘em coming back for his great food and a bit of Lawrence sass. 

Noted here John Sapienza is donating funds collected at his restaurant to the Friends of the Lawrence Public Library by way of Louise Sandberg, archivist and librarian.
