Niagara-on-the-Lake's Pie'za Pizza will be giving away free margherita pizzas all day on Sunday, to celebrate the store's five-year anniversary.

Maurizio and Laryssa Cesta, owners and operators of Pie’za, opened their shop on the Victoria Day long weekend in 2016 and have been passionate about 'za ever since, cooking up high-quality pizzas out of their 5,000-pound wood-burning oven imported from Napoli.

Pie'za is one of 13 pizza restaurants in Canada to have been officially recognized and certified by the Vera Napoletana Association (AVPN) in Naples.

Donations will be accepted toward St. John the Compassionate Mission in downtown Toronto, where Laryssa volunteers weekly.

The Cestas said they wanted to give back to people who have supported them and will offer the pizzas from noon until they run out of dough.

Curbside pickup and safe social distancing procedures will be maintained. They ask that everyone stopping by follows COVID-19 safety guidelines, wears a mask and keeps two metres apart.
