Ohio Valley Pizza

Iggy's Pizza - YUM YUMAH, Ohio Valley Pizza, nothing quite says, I’m from the middle of nowhere like making up your own style of pizza (or something). Now if you’re not from Steubenville or Toronto you may not know exactly what Ohio Valley Pizza is. First off, it is the best pizza on the face of the earth. Secondly, there is no contesting the first fact because I said so. HAH. Anyway the first thing that you’ll notice that is odd about our favorite pizza is that it’s square. Square as in it’s made in a square pan and then cut into square pieces. Then you’ll notice that the cheese isn’t melted all the way. The uncooked toppings are put on after the sauce, base cheese (minimal), and dough are cooked. You always have to make sure to have a slice ASAP before everything melts on the drive/walk back to your place. You’ll also notice that our pizza sauce isn’t really much of a sauce at all as much as it is just stewed tomatoes. Also the crust is a mix between a deep dish and thin crust. It is very much Focaccia bread, if you’ve ever had that. Oh, and the best part is that you buy it by the slice. So I can just walk up on any given Tuesday and get dinner for 2 bucks. The “by the slice thing” causes considerable issues for those who are only used to ordering this way. I’ve heard of more than a few people that have walked in to pizza joints in other cities and walked out with 8 large pizzas when they really just wanted 8 pieces. Anyway that was my much delayed description of the best pizza on earth, I hope it’s brightened your day considerably.

  1. New York and Chicago style pizzas are so very overrated. They all taste the same, and you can find them anywhere in the country. There’s only one area you can find pizza like this. You just don’t get it unless you’re from there. When you move away, you jones for it… you crave it like crazy!!!!! Sad thing is, that’s the ONLY thing the valley has going for it… everything else has all gone to hell.

  2. youguys sure are passionate about this place, we don’t have anything like where i live, Washington State, but my mother in law lives out that way, maybe we’ll just have to make a special trip … from what you gus are saying it sounds like its worth it. one pizza i have found and absolutly love is AC LaRocco pizza!. here’s the crazy part … its a frozen pizza that is delicious and good for you. youcan find it in your grocers frozen natural foods section. check it out

  4. I grew up in Pittsburgh having since moved to L.A. and Florida. Dicarlos is what I miss the most and I get it every time I come home to visit. My father worked at Weirton Steel and brought home Dicarlos about every other week, when I was young. And, the pizza still is delicious to this day. However, I do miss the pepperoni that they used to use in the 80’s and 90’s which rolled when cooked. It’s the best pepperoni I’ve ever had and I wish I could find it today.

  10. The funny story is the names of the DiCarlo boys
    Primo, Secundo, Murphy and Galdo
    Primo means first
    Secundo means second
    Murphy was named after a neighbor they liked
    Galdo named his fourth boy after himself
    Galdo Jr. statred most of the valley pizzerias
    Primo ran the one in Steubenville
    Murphy ran the bakery-great bread
