Halftime Pizza is Boston’s premier family-owned and operated pizza restaurant located in the heart of Boston’s Hub District across from the TD Garden.
It all started when Leonardo “Tony” & Dora Pasquale introduced Boston to the original Pasquale Family dough recipe in 1966 at their King of Pizza restaurant, located in Boston’s notorious Combat Zone. Their three children, Nancy, Mark, and Rita followed the family’s footsteps of sharing generational recipes originating from their ancestral hometown in Prezza, Abruzze. Their reputation was built by employing an incomparable pizza from farm to table. In 1981, The Pasquale family continued their legacy, introducing “Halftime King of Pizza” to Causeway Street.
Through decades of hard work, the family established themselves to become Boston’s ‘Pre-Game’ destination. Mark’s oldest son, Justino, is the newest Pasquale entering the family business. Justino has been working hard all his life, cultivating the knowledge to run the restaurant and take over the family business. Justino understands that food is love and is intent on expanding and growing the Pasquale Pizza legacy for another generation to enjoy. In 2021, the Halftime Family combined forces with another Boston icon, J. Pace & Son. The two celebrated brands strive to widen their culinary offerings to satisfy customers for years to come.
