From the Times Ledger:
The three cousins who own Bayside’s VIPizza said their eatery is not only the last pizzeria in the borough to strictly serve pizza and soda, but also the only one that delivers pies to customers who live thousands of miles away.
The pizzeria, at 43−02 Bell Blvd. in Bayside, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this spring. The restaurant first opened as Bell Pizza at a site two doors down on Bell Boulevard in 1959, changed hands twice, became Ed’s Pizza and in 1995 moved to its current locale as VIPizza.
At least one person operating the pizzeria at any given time has been related to one of the previous owners, said Mike Guercio, one of the current co−owners. Now Guercio and his two cousins, Luigi Dammassa and Peter Agorious, run the operation, using the same recipes as when the eatery first opened.
