In 1995, Madeline Castellotti had a vision. Where frightened visitors saw adult shops and violence, Madeline saw potential. It was then when she decided Times Square would be home to the world famous John’s of Times Square. As she walked the Crossroads of the World, she was looking for a location that was as unique as her pizza. After stumbling upon an abandoned church on West 44th Street, where the homeless squatted and spray painted gang signs were apart of the décor, Madeline instantly saw the beauty of this old Gospel Tabernacle Church. During her initial tour of this location, the perfectly intact stained glass ceiling caught her attention. It was made up of 8 parts, all equal in size, just like a pizza pie. It was then that Ms. Castellotti knew this would be home to her dream, the most unique pizzeria in the world.
In June of 1997, John’s of Times Square opened its doors while Times Square was still recreating its image to be what it has become today. Since John’s of Times Square’s grand opening, Times Square has come along way, from streets filled with violence and prostitution, to the world’s most visited location. This unique location has hosted Broadway play openings, award ceremonies, album release parties, and a wedding, just to name a few.
John’s of Times Square has been voted one of New York’s best pizzas because of its unique characteristics. Not only are they the most unique pizzeria, but they're also the largest pizzeria in the United States. All pizzas are made to order in one of their four coal-fired brick ovens and like a cast iron pan, their ovens season with age, making no two pizzas the same.
