Pagliacci Does Seafair

Pagliacci had an absolute blast at the July 14 Lucerne Seafair Milk Carton Derby. This unusual Seafair event has been held annually at Green Lake since 1972. From much smaller beginnings, it has sprouted into a major event with live entertainment, a beer garden, and loads of food trucks. This years event occurred on Saturday, July 14.

Riso Gelato

Riso is a gelato unlike any other and we've patiently awaited the day we could offer this seasonal option. With Gelatiamo's move to a larger production facility and a lot of begging from Pagliacci co-founder Matt Galvin our dreams were finally made a reality. The Arborio rice is prepared just like a risotto, stirring and stirring with cream, sugar and organic milk. One taste of the Riso and you'll see why we are so thrilled! [...]

Pizza Margherita

The pizza Margherita, beloved for its simplicity—tomato, mozzarella, basil, olive oil, and sea salt—is the standard from which today's pizza evolved. The origin story is one worth telling. In 1889, the king of Italy, Umberto I, and his wife, Queen Margherita, were in Naples. A local piazzolo, Raffaele Esposito, made her three pies. Her favorite had the red, white, and green of the Italian flag (tomatoes, mozzarella, basil), hence, Pizza Margherita. Our Margherita pizza may not be certified by the Italians, but it is a Pagliacci classic and an ode to pizza history. When you're in the mood for a pizza on the lighter side, composed of the simply of elemental pizza ingredients of the highest quality and flavor, give it a try. [...]
