KAUKAUNA (NBC 26) — Tuesday marks National Pizza Day.
At Pagoni's Pizzeria in Kaukauna, the roots of this shop go back to Chicago. Since coming to Northeast Wisconsin in 2008, not a lot has changed.
“We make our dough the day before, so it ferments overnight. We make our own sauce, we shred our own cheese, we get fresh produce, and we prep it up every single day,” said owner Ernesto Morale.
During the pandemic, Pagoni's has a special buffet. It's a touch-free way to get some delicious pizza and can get customers in and out in a hurry.
“They pay up front, but we have someone working in back that has their gloves and their mask on. You just let them know what you want, and they will provide the food and put it on the plate for them. So, it's the least contact as possible, but it's still available for the people that just have 10 or 20 minutes to eat,” said Morale.
Pagoni's gave back during the pandemic. The owners say they provided food to local schools and lunches for those in need.
