About Mijo’s Pizzeria
Mijo’s is a family pizzeria established in 1979 and home of the original Brooklyn style pizza. Enzo – the new owner, and staff (all family) are natives of the Naples and Sicily vicinities of Italy. The new staff arrived in the U.S. less than 5 years ago bringing with them the taste, pride and talent of their delicious unchanged recipes right here to the surrounding N.J. area!
Enzo’s family is no stranger to pizzerias. They have a long history and reputation in the food business. His father established the first storefront in Brooklyn circa 1964 called “Frank’s Pizzeria”. Enzo also learned early in life on how to take great care and pride in the food business that is easily noticed both in his discipline and and in what he serves.
Mijo’s is proud to serve the original and famous Brooklyn style Pizza. The dish was founded in Queens, NY and then introduced to New Jersey in 1968 by none-other than Enzo’s father-inlaw renowned pizzeria owner Steve Bruno. Steve is the father of this Brooklyn Sicilian style pie, but he didn’t stop there. Steve also formed 18 pizzeria establishments since that time all with the name of “Mr. Bruno’s Pizza”. Today, Mijo’s serves that same great recipe. That SAME GREAT UNCHANGED DELICIOUS SECRET RECIPE served since the 1960’s – right here at Mijo’s Pizzeria.
