Carlton (Melbourne) June 19, 2007 – Today, Toto’s Pizza is being inducted into the International Pizza Hall of Fame in a ceremony taking place on Lygon Street in Melbourne’s Italian district. Australia’s oldest pizzeria is the second pizza store in as many years to be enshrined at www.PizzaHallOfFame.org   

Previous inductee, Lombardi’s Pizza of New York City joins Toto’s Pizzeria as being one of the two oldest and original vendors of the pizza in their respective countries. Interestingly, since Toto’s first opened in 1961, Victoria has become the leading state in the per capita consumption of pizza domestically. The Pizza Industry owes a debt of gratitude to Toto’s Pizza and today we all recognize and honor founder Frank Fera and today’s flame keeper Sami Malzoum.
