Working in construction, Todd Hugh figured he may work on a restaurant, but never saw himself running one.

"My better half, Andrea Haus, came home one day and said 'I think we're going to start a restaurant.' I said 'Oh, OK,' and that was 6 years now," says Todd.

Wanting to keep the business close to home, Riverwest Pizza now sits on the corner of Wright and Weil.

"Love being part of the Riverwest neighborhood and are heavily supported by our neighborhood when it comes down to it and our very thankful for that," says Todd.

Sure, pizza may sound ordinary, but the combinations here are anything but.

"We do have the basic staples but then not many places where you can go to get duck on pizza," says Todd.

"That one in particular is my favorite. The Fratney has got caramelized onions, duck, goat cheese, green onions, and red sauce. By far my favorite pizza here," says Byron Wilson, employee and local of Riverwest.

With cook, Bryon's seal of approval on the taste, he can also promise safety. Despite having a plan approved by the city, Riverwest Pizza has decided to stay curbside or delivery only.

"So it's a lot easier, for us to come in and know that we are keeping each other safe and not spreading the virus and we are doing our best to keep it clean and make sure everyone is doing the same routine," says Bryon.

Open seven days a week, next time hunger strikes, try a slice from Riverwest Pizza.
