Antonio’s Pizza not only has a great recipe for spectacular pizza, but also for business success!

We are a family-owned business that builds personal relationships with our customers and our vendors. Founded in 1992, our owner Bill Suiter, Sr. opened the first Antonio’s Pizza locations in Virden, Illinois and the Old State Capitol Plaza in Springfield.  The recipes we use culminated from original ideas developed by Bill, Sr. and his friends who were “old school local Italian food veterans.”  While Bill, Sr.’s career in the food business spans over 50 years, sons Bill, Jr. and Dave Suiter now manage the day-to-day operations.  Our father and sons team has expanded to five locations throughout Springfield.  Antonio’s success comes from creating flavorful and unique products for our customers because we insist on using quality ingredients throughout an extensive menu.  Providing friendly customer service has also secured our spot as one of Springfield’s most popular pizza places.

Our special-recipe pizza dough is made fresh daily (never frozen!) in one location so we can ensure a quality, consistent crust for every pizza we create.  The dough is proofed in-store to ensure maximum flavor and texture on both our original crust and the thick crust pizza.  And we don’t skimp on the toppings!  We use a generous amount of only the freshest meat and veggies.  We also offer a special Bianco sauce as a marinara substitute, which is the perfect blend of olive oil, garlic, basil, oregano, and Romano cheese.
