Pie’za giving away free pizzas to help Toronto mission

Maurizio and Laryssa Cesta, owners of Pie’za Pizzeria, are raising some dough again for Toronto's St. John the Compassionate Mission.

The couple will be giving away free takeout Margherita pizzas for the second year in a row all day on Sunday, May 22, to celebrate the restaurant's six-year anniversary and to help out a worthy cause.

All donations received will go to the agency, which works with vulnerable individuals and families.

Laryssa volunteers weekly at the mission in downtown Toronto, where she was born and raised. 

Free pizzas will be available from 1 p.m. until they run out of dough.

Pie’za opened on Victoria Street on the Victoria Day weekend in May 2016 and since then has been officially recognized and certified by the Vera Napoletana Association (AVPN) in Naples, Italy.

There are only 13 such certifications in Canada and the Cestas strive to deliver a high-quality pizza out of their 5,000-pound wood-burning oven imported from Napoli.
