Uncle Sal Rococo

b. 1928

Born in Sicily, Lillian “Mama” Rococo followed the love of her life, Albert “Night Breeze” Rococo to the new country (New Jersey) in 1946. Mama soon set her sights on starting a family, and was blessed with the 2nd love of her life, Rocky, in 1948. Soon after, “Night Breeze” lived up to his nickname and disappeared in the middle of the night never to be heard from again. Mama persevered. With little Rocky in tow, she started doing the only thing she knew – selling Sicilian pizza by the slice from a pushcart on the streets of Newark. She supported her family and raised a famous pizza purveyor in the process. Mama is still very involved in Rocky’s pizza business and his life!
The brother of “Night Breeze” Rococo, Uncle Sal stepped in to help raise little Rocky when his brother disappeared. A slightly shady character, Uncle Sal is a phenomenal pizza maker and has helped Rocky throughout his pizza making years. Still involved in the business, Sal strives to keep the details of his love life with food critic, Olive Fude, out of the news.

Mr. Rocky Rococo was born in 1948 in Newark, N.J., the son of Lillian “Mama” Rococo and Albert “Night Breeze” Rococo. Born into a life of pizza, Rocky followed Mama’s example and helped to support his family by selling Sicilian pizza by the slice from a pushcart on the streets of Newark.

Rocky spent 20 years of his life pushing his cart and it is estimated that he wore out 347 pairs of shoes in his endeavor. As Rocky got older, he decided to strike out on his own. He seemed to have no trouble landing, in quick succession, the position of encyclopedia salesman, the job running the “ring the bell” game with a traveling carnival, and a job selling coupon books. Then Rocky started the job that would change his life….selling pizza peels. (To the uninitiated, a pizza peel is a big flat thing with a long handle that is used to pull pizzas outof the oven). Soon Rocky was getting into pizzeria kitchens all over the country; learning the tricks of the trade in the process and consuming thousands of pizzas. Like all aspiring pizza purveyors, Rocky thought he could make better pizzas. Not surprisingly, he could. Encouraged by his friends, Rocky opened his first restaurant in Madison, WI in April of 1974. The rest is history.

Raised in Wisconsin, Bess Quality was born to be a quality control specialist. True to her calling, she pursued a career in the pizza industry and quickly fell in love with Rocky Rococo. Undeterred by Rocky’s meddling mother, Bess & Rocky had a secret love affair for 25 years until they were discovered in 1999.

Bess & Rocky decided to tie the knot in 2002 and had their first child, Dinah Mite, in 2003. Dinah is now being raised to be the best quality pizza maker in the world.
