Although Mirko Vucinic netted a double to ultimately hand the Bianconeri all three points at the Juventus Stadium, the hosts had a difficult time finding a way past opposition keeper Ivan Pelizzoli, who put in an inspired display to thwart his opponents on numerous occasions.
Nonetheless, the win was enough to extend Juve's lead at the top of the table to 12 points, although second-placed Napoli can reduce that on Sunday when they entertain Genoa.
Speaking after the game, Conte admitted the game had been a stressful one for him as he was left wondering if his side were going to manage to grab the win.
"I'm exhausted and relieved at this success," he told Sky Sport Italy. "It appeared to be a cursed game.
"We dominated, had many efforts on goal, hit the woodwork and saw shots go wide by a whisker. They they [Pescara] come up with an effort from 40 metres [through Emmanuel Cascione] and it finds the top corner.
"We'll take these fundamental points, we know we still haven't achieved anything, but we've taken another step towards our target."
Although Vucinic proved to be Juventus' match-winner, Conte does not believe he had an excellent game but remains upbeat the Montenegrin can make a difference in Wednesday's UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg against Bayern Munich.
"Vucinic didn't play well at all but scored twice," he added. "Just think [what could have been] if he had put in a good performance.
"I hope these goals are a good omen for Bayern Munich."
The Bianconeri head into their European encounter trailing 2-0 on aggregate following their first-leg defeat, and Conte is aware of the challenge that awaits his side if they are to advance to the semi-finals.
"They [Bayern] have won the [Bundesliga] championship with a 20-point advantage and deserve plenty of congratulations for this achievement," the ex-Italy international said.
"We must be willing to take risks, even to go one-on-one with [Franck] Ribery or [Arjen] Robben. Robben's introduction for [the injured Toni] Kroos hurt us [in the first leg].
"If we want to peg them back, we need to impose our rhythm from the start."
The last time Juventus won the Champions League was back in the 1995/96 season, when they beat Ajax on penalties in the final at the Stadio Olimpico.
