The proposed series will feature Ciccone riding across North America on a Harley and helping families revive old-fashioned pizzerias. “The show has 30 to 40 million potential viewers. I crunched the numbers. Everyone loves pizza,” the rising star tells Macleans.
The pizza owner knows the trade from working in the business since he was a teen, but East Town Pizza was acquired by Ciccone in 1990 with his brother and brother-in-law. In 1995 the family won the award for Best Pizza in Canada, followed by the World’s Best Pizza title in 1996 — the first two of some 20 awards in total.
