ST. LOUIS — It’s now even easier for local pizza lovers to get a slice from Katie’s Pizza and Pasta Osteria.
The restaurant’s frozen pizzas are now available at all St. Louis area Dierbergs. Pizzas available at Dierbergs include Burrata Margherita, Meatball, Super Ezzo, Fig, Squash & Bacon, Creamy Tuscan Kale and Kid’s Cheese.
Each pizza is hand-stretched and baked in the restaurant's 800-degree, wood-fired ovens. Owner and chef Katie Collier uses the “highest quality of scratch and specialty ingredients,” according to a news release.
If you can’t make it to the store, Katie’s Pizza is also available for nationwide shipping to all 50 states.
In the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Katie’s Pizza first began freezing and delivering its pizzas to customers contact-free. This pivot to their dine-in-only restaurant saved more than 100 jobs and the restaurant itself, the release stated.
After selling 40,000 frozen pizzas by May, the restaurant launched its first national frozen pizza delivery service.
Last month, the restaurant shared its struggles with making nationwide shipping available amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Today we sent out an email announcing our NEW nationwide shipping of frozen pizzas.....and then FedEx changed their shipping zones an hour later due to COVID restrictions,” the restaurant shared on Facebook last month.
Katie’s Pizza was only offering shipping throughout the Midwest until earlier this month.
“Official 👏 official 👏official —> We NOW ship our wood fired/frozen pizzas and fresh extruded pastas/sauces to all 50 states! Your friends in Hawaii and Alaska are covered,” the restaurant wrote on Facebook.
All pizzas are made fresh-to-order and shipped on the same day. The pizzas take one to three business days locally and two to five business days nationally to arrive.
