Discover the true story of the largest FBI investigation of all time where a trail of drugs and billions of dollars led from Sicily to New York pizzerias and Midwest strip malls.

It is one of the most remarkable cases in the annals of AMERICAN JUSTICE®, and the biggest investigation in FBI history.

On July 12, 1979, Carmine Galanta, notorious boss of the Bonanno crime family, was ambushed and killed in a Brooklyn Restaurant. Federal officers investigating the hit soon found a link to a previously unknown, billion-dollar drug pipeline.

THE PIZZA CONNECTION shows how the case soon expanded to include the Italian Government and Federal agents all across America. Trace the network of crime that converted tons of Sicilian-made heroin to billions of dollars in cash using small businesses throughout America, from New York pizzerias to Midwest strip mall stores.

FBI and DEA agents tell how they uncovered the powerful figure behind the vast network Gaetano Badalamenti, a Mafia outlaw trying to stay alive and build an empire. And attorneys for both the prosecution and the defense recall the trial that brought this unique case to an end.
