STEVE CARCAREY
COLLEGEVILLE ITALIAN BAKERY PIZZERIA NAPOLETANA
COLLEGEVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA

Steve and Patrizia Carcarey took over the family Italian bakery and deli in 2009. The couple added a pizzeria in 2015.

OUR PIZZERIA OFFERS THE BEST OF
BOTH WORLDS - "old," and "new." When

we say, "old world," it refers to our authentic,
12-inch pizzas made in our Gianni Acunto
wood-fired oven. "New world" refers to
traditional, 16-inch pizzas made in our Marsal
gas-fired oven. We offer over 100 different
types of pizza, ranging from New York,
Connecticut, St. Louis, California and Detroit
styles in addition to our authentic Napoletana
pies made the old-school Italian way.
Our business was started by my wife's
parents, immigrants from Nusco, Italy, in 1994
as a small Italian bread bakery, deli and market.
We are known, first and foremost, for our
homemade bread, baked fresh on the premises
daily. Since then, we have truly flourished into
a one-stop shop for all things Italian. We're still
that same authentic bread bakery and deli, but
(we) continued to grow over the years. Once
my wife, Patrizia, and I took over the business
in 2009, we transformed our brand, expanding
our marketplace to offer a larger selection
of specialties and goods imported from Italy,
adding a dining room where customers can sit
down and enjoy their meals and, most recently,
incorporating a pizzeria, featuring old-world

and new-world pizza, with a Nutella bar.
OUR SLOGAN IS: "We're more than just a

bakery!" And it's something people realize the
moment they walk through our doors. When
they hear, "bakery," most people instinctively
think sweets - cakes, pastries, cookies, etc.
While we offer all of those items, there's so
much more to our business. We have such
a rich history, authentic culture and unique
offerings that we want people to know about,
so it's just getting past those initial assumptions
to show customers what we're all about.
ON BREAKFAST PIZZAS - When we sat
down to develop the menu for the pizzeria in
preparation for our grand opening in June 2015,
we knew we had to incorporate breakfast
pizzas. The pies were an instant hit with our
customers as they're something different from
the usual breakfast lineup. It's unique, delicious
and a true game-changer. Who wouldn't want
pizza for breakfast?
By far, our bacon, egg and cheese breakfast
pie is the most popular. Our breakfast pies
were featured on Philadelphia's Fox 29's
"Breakfast with Bob" segment, highlighting the

uniqueness of offering pizza for breakfast. No
one else in our area does it.
It doesn't matter what time of day it is.
Our customers will order a breakfast pizza for
lunch, dinner or even as a late-night snack. Our
breakfast pies are available all day as a 12-inch
wood-fired pie or a traditional 16-inch round
from the gas oven. We recently introduced our
Detroit-style breakfast pies which a feature a
buttery cheese crust.
There's really no limit as to what can be
included on our breakfast pies. We want our
customers to get creative and add their favorite
ingredients, so anything goes!

AT PIZZA & PASTA NORTHEAST IN
OCTOBER, Steve Carcarey will present

a demonstration on breakfast pizzas.

more about his session at the pizzeria
and Italian restaurant show in Atlantic
City on October 17-18.
