TORONTO — Domenic Primucci, president of Pizza Nova, received the distinction of Top 25 Executive by Pizza Marketplace, an awards program held annually in conjunction with the International Pizza Expo. Primucci placed 10th – the first time he has been named to the list. During the event held in Las Vegas, Pizza Marketplace honoured 25 executives in the pizza industry, including pizzeria owners, presidents, directors of Operations and executive chefs.

In 2006, Primucci spearheaded a major brand re-fresh and charted a new course in menu innovation, which included becoming the first in Canada to introduce items such as Raised Without Antibiotics toppings, charcoal dough and pea-protein plant-based pepperoni. Over the past 25 years, he has also led the company’s That’s Amore Pizza for Kids campaign, which has helped to raise more than $2.5 million for Variety – the Children’s Charity of Ontario.

In 2023, in honour of the company’s 60th anniversary and under Primucci’s leadership, Pizza Nova announced a $1 million donation to Scarborough Health Network Foundation, an organization he has supported actively for the past eight years.

“It’s an honour to receive this award and stand among such inspiring leaders in the industry. Pizza Nova is a proudly Italian-Canadian company, and for more than 60 years, we’ve strived to ensure we provide quality food and service. It’s thanks to our staff’s commitment to this promise that I can stand here before you today and receive this honour,” says Primucci. “I’d like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to my father, Sam Primucci, the founder of Pizza Nova, our dedicated employees, and our loyal customers, whose unwavering support has been instrumental in our success. This recognition not only celebrates our past achievements but also inspires us to continue striving for excellence and innovation in the pizza industry.”
