Give Back With Big Willie’s Pizza Pies For A Cause

With over 45 years of experience within the culinary industry, Willie DePascale is giving back to restaurant and hospitality workers with the launch of Big Willie’s Pizza Pies for a Cause. The former chef, whose quarantine hobby involved crafting wood-fired pizzas for his friends and family, is now offering his homemade creations to the public on a donation basis, to support a great cause.

Originally from New York, DePascale knows what it takes to craft the perfect pie. His menu features a variety of Neapolitan and Sicilian style pizzas including the option to create your own! Savory selections include the Margherita, the Pesto Lover, and the Sophie, which features homemade meatballs and fennel sausage, mushrooms, basil tomatoes, and ricotta cheese. For dessert, DePascale offers a classic New York-style Chocolate Chip Cannoli.

Menu selections are available to order at a suggested donation price, with all proceeds going towards the purchase of $500 gift cards to shops such as Vons, Ralph’s, Amazon, and Target. Gift cards are provided to restaurant and hospitality works in need, on a monthly basis. To date, DePascale has been able to raise $4,500 in donations, helping a total of seven families.
