Johnson City Pizza Landmark Turns on Its Ovens Again
Almost two weeks after it was shut down by a fire, Brozzetti's Pizza shop in Johnson City has reopened.
Some loyal customers of the iconic pizza place on Baldwin Street had wondered whether they would be able to place an order for upcoming Super Bowl parties.
The business reopened with no fanfare around 10 a.m. Monday, shortly after a check by a Broome County Health Department inspector.
A small fire on January 16 was extinguished by firefighters within a matter of minutes. But the blaze caused some damage to the kitchen area and the roof above it.
Over the last several days, the phone at Brozzetti's had been ringing with folks trying to find out when they could once again place an order.
Finally, on Monday, employees were able to share the good news that they were again making pizzas, continuing a tradition dating back to 1949.
