Peter Sciortinos Bakery is one of Mr. Pea and my favorite Saturday morning stops. Brady street in Milwaukee is one of my favorite places for food. It is ever changing, yet it has some really great places that have been there for years, and have been there for years with good reason. Peter Sciortinos Bakery is a America’s Finest Italian Bakery, at least in my eyes. At Peter Sciortino’s Bakery, they make all of their products from scratch on a daily basis, this ensures that everything is fresh.
Some of the great things to get at this bakery is their bread, their Italian hard bread and hard rolls is easily a family favorite. They even distribute their bread to a few local restaurants, and when you taste it, you will know why, it is amazing. They also have really great doughnuts and pastries, in my opinion they have the best cheese danish and cruller doughnut I have ever had. They also make fantastic Italian pastries and cookies that I heard are delicious. I have only had the holiday Italian Christmas cookies they make every year, people will wait in line for these cookies and buy them by the dozens.
They don’t just have great bakery items at Sciortinos, they also have really great deli items, like turkey and Swiss cheese. They also have Mr. Pea’s personal favorite item, the pizza doughs. These pizza doughs are great, they are $1.50 each and are bagged individually and you can throw them in the freezer for up to three months, so when you want to make a pizza you just pop it in the fridge while you are at work and by the time you get home you are all set to make a delicious homemade pizza. My homemade pizzas are one of Mr. Pea’s favorite things that I make, so I will make one soon and let you all in on my secrets to both my homemade pizza and calzones, stay tuned.
From their amazingly fresh breads to their delicious Italian pastries, I assure you that you will not find a fresher or better tasting bakery in the Greater Milwaukee area!
