Maurizio and Laryssa Cesta, owners and operators of Pie’za Pizzeria, will be giving away free (takeout) Margherita pizzas all day on Sunday, May 23, to celebrate their five-year anniversary at 188 Victoria Street in Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Pie’za Pizzeria opened its doors Victoria Day long weekend in 2016, and since then has been officially recognized and certified by the Vera Napoletana Association (AVPN) in Naples, Italy. With one of only 13 certifications in Canada, the owners say they strive to deliver a high-quality pizza out of their 5,000-pound wood burning oven imported from Napoli.
Laryssa volunteers weekly at St. John the Compassionate Mission in downtown Toronto, where she was born and raised. This is a charity near and dear to her heart, and in an effort to support those in need, donations will be accepted to support her favourite cause.
To commemorate the five-year anniversary of Pie’za Pizzeria, Laryssa and Maurizio want to say thank you to all their loyal supporters by serving their signature pizza, the Queen Margherita, free of charge, while encouraging safe curbside takeout practices they have put in place over the past year. Guests are welcome to come any time after 12 p.m., until they run out of dough. They will also have their full bar open for guests to purchase takeout wine, beer or soft drinks.
Owners say the team at Pie’za Pizzeria is excited to celebrate this milestone, and they hope to put a smile on their customers’ faces during these difficult times.
The owners ask that you follow the COVID-19 safety guidelines wearing a mask and keeping two metres apart. Washroom facilities are closed but public restrooms in NOTL are open.
