Synopsis by Mark Deming
Two warring families are brought together by love and pizza in this romantic comedy. Vito Rossi (Vincent Pastore) and Frank Bianco (Frank Vincent) are two men who used to work together in the same pizza parlor in Yonkers, NY, but when their mentor Emilio (Louis Guss) retired, he decided to give his secret formula for perfect crust to Vito, and his recipe for the best sauce in town to Frank. Now the two men are bitter rivals, each running their own pizza place and constantly battling over who has the best pie in town. However, Vito's daughter Angela (Robin Paul) recently graduated from business school, and has big plans for shifting the family business into overdrive. Frank, meanwhile, has an idea of his own for getting ahead -- he'll persuade his handsome twenty-something son Tony (Conor Dubin), a budding cartoonist, to romance Angela, and hopefully persuade her to reveal her family's share of the famous pizza recipe. However, something unexpected happens -- Angela and Tony fall in love, despite the bad blood between their families, and have to figure out a way to break the unexpected news to their families. A Tale of Two Pizzas was the first feature film from writer and director Vincent Sassone.
