MEET PIZZELLE: Kelly
Just like an Italian grandma, we want everyone to eat - so all our food is gluten-free and soy-free with many vegetarian, dairy-free, and meat-lovers options.
You might be wondering what the heck does "Pizzelle" mean? It’s pronounced [pit-sell] by some and [pit-sell-lay] by others , from Italian singular "pizzella." Pizzelles are the oldest known cookies to exist, dating back to the 8th century. The cookies are round and flat, just like pizza that shares the same root word "pizze." Pizzelle cookies are embossed with different designs and are eaten at weddings, holidays, and special events.
We love pizzelle so much that we offer them everyday. Our pizzelle are made plain, dipped in chocolate, glazed & sprinkled with candies or nuts, and are used to sandwich everything from ice cream to a cannoli filling.
