About Pizza Man (website)
In 1970, Mike Amidzich purchased a small carry-out pizza restaurant that he soon renamed Pizza Man and set off to satisfy the munchies of Milwaukee’s hippy-dippy East Side. Proud to fill the niche by offering pizza delivery service until 4 am, he also gave his unsuspecting customers a free quart of Pepsi with every order to wash down the pizza and quench the cottonmouths of his growing fan base. Soon, word spread of Pizza Man’s incredible pizza, free quart of Pepsi and late night delivery and business exploded!
Over time Mike integrated his love for Napa Valley wine into the fabric of the restaurant, eventually curating one of the largest domestic wine lists in the Midwest. He even went so far as to offer every single bottle on his list, which at one point featured over 600 different selections, by the glass! In 1989 Pizza Man won its first Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and has continued to receive this prestigious recognition every year since.
