Pizzeria Paradiso Women in Pizza, Beer, Spirits celebrates female entrepreneurs

Event returns to all Paradiso locations in March

For Women’s History Month, Pizzeria Paradiso celebrates and recognizes women with four limited-release pizzas. Through the Women in Pizza, Beer and Spirits 2020 celebration, specially-designed pizzas pay tribute to local women who have been pioneers in the local food and beverage scene. Pizzeria Paradiso collaborated with these entrepreneurs to create special pizzas, including a Spring Pea-Za by Leah Cheston, Right Proper owner and director of operations. The pizza chain created beer and cocktail pairing recommendations for these pies to be enjoyed all month long.

On March 26, the Spring Pea-Za will be paired with a Proper Friend Blend, which delivers a 5.0 percent ABV. The special blend of barrel-aged ales picked by Pizzeria Paradiso Beverage Director Drew McCormick provides a diverse combination: gin barrel-aged Astral Weeks, red wine barrel-aged White Bicycles and fresh unfiltered White Bicycles.
