FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the difference between the Original Style and the Thin Crust pizzas?
The Original Style pizza is made exactly like a fresh pizza. Fresh dough is rolled out by hand, topped with sauce, cheese and other toppings and then partially baked. The pizza is then cooled, frozen and packaged. If the pizza were baked completely it would be a fresh restaurant quality pizza. Our employees enjoy these for lunch during the week. The Thin Crust pizza is a pre-baked crust topped off with the same quality ingredients as other Portesi products, and then frozen raw.
What is the difference between the 12” and the 11” Original style pizzas?
The 11” and the 14" is THE ORIGINAL recipe. Nothing has changed with the recipe or the way it is made with the more simple flavor profile including a fresh tomato tasting sauce. The 12” is almost identical with the exception of a sweeter sauce for a different taste.
Does the Original Style pizza require less baking time because it is partially baked?
No, the cooking time is about the same.
We live outside of Central Wisconsin and can’t find your pizza.
Our pizza is mostly available where we are able to service stores directly. Our 9" line of pizzas and Cheese Fries are available in Roundy's Copps, Pick 'n Save stores throughout the state and our 9" Cheese Fries are available in Rainbow Foods in the Minneapolis area. Check our availability to see if there is a store near you with Portesi products.
Can you ship pizzas or cheese fries to an area where Portesi is not available?
Unfortunately we are not set up to ship product at this time. When this time does come, we will only be able to ship within Wisconsin because we are a State Inspected facility. Shipping overnight in an insulated container can be costly. We suggest that you contact a friend that lives in an area where Portesi products are available and ask them to ship product to you.
Are Portesi products available for fund raising projects?
Portesi offers our Thin Crust line of pizzas and Cheese Fries for most fund raising projects. The Original Style line and Hi-Rise Cheese Fries are available for an additional amount. The key is to keep the project simple for your best results. Check our fund raiser page for more information.
I noticed that not all Portesi products have nutritional information. How can I find that information?
It is available on our website under products-freezer case- and then the specific pizza.
How can I get seasoning shipped to me?
--Send us an email. We will give you the specific information. We can ship anywhere. Seasoning must be purchased in case quantities (12 jars). Perfect for sharing with friends.
Do you handle any other products?
I have enjoyed your rising dough pizza at riverfront, where is it available?
We get that question all the time...this is a special item for special events...sorry.
