Episode 7: Pizza Napoletana (from the Corona bakery)

Mary Monaco left school at the age of 16 to help out with the family bakery, but nothing would prepare her for the events of 1940, when Montreal’s Italian community was torn apart by anti-fascist hysteria.

Hear the story of this hard-working Italian-immigrant family, while learning how to make the famous Pizza Napoletana from the iconic Corona Bakery (1932-1995) on Bordeaux Street in Rosemont, Montreal, with Mary Monaco, her daughter Joanne Romanow and her granddaughter Kat Romanow.

In loving memory of Mary Monaco 1913-2016
