Inventor of the Stuffed Pizza

Watch the story of the birth of Chicago's stuffed pizza and the family that started it.

“The Best Stuffed Pizza in Chicago” – Chicago Tribune, Chicago Magazine, ABC-TV

Welcome to Nancy’s Pizza on Golf Road, a local restaurant offering delicious food in Niles, IL. Our story goes back to 1969 when Nancy and Rocco Palese moved to the United States. They had a lot of experience making pizza in Italy so, after 18 months in Chicago, they opened a pizzeria called Guy’s Pizza. They were serving thin crust pizza, which was popular at the time, but Rocco also decided to introduce a pie of his own. He was inspired by a recipe from his mother and so the stuffed pizza was born. Later, in 1974, Rocco opened a new pizzeria which he named “Nancy’s” after his wife. The goal was to serve mouthwatering stuffed pizza. In the following years, Nancy’s Pizza would become very popular and expand to more locations. Today, our restaurant continues the tradition of Rocco and Nancy by providing quality food and service. At Nancy’s Pizza, we serve many tasty dishes such as: different kinds of pizza like our stuffed pies, thin-crust pizzas, and pan pies. Furthermore, we serve delicious munchies, salads, sandwiches, pasta, dinners, desserts, and more. Make sure to check our menu for deals and coupons. Stop by anytime at our restaurant and enjoy our 21+ gaming area while you wait for your food or place an order for pickup or delivery.
