Mealtime Made Easy With Pausa Pizzas

February 16, 2022

Pizza is a guaranteed family pleaser ... And who isn't looking for a great pizza to try? To help you take the guesswork out of meal planning, we’re thrilled to offer something the whole family can finally agree on. For a limited time, Dinnerbell is partnering with Pausa Bar & Cookery in San Mateo to bring you delicious house-made pizzas without all the prep. Add other items from the Dinnerbell Menu like our Fresh Greens Salad, Garlicky Roasted Veggies, and Gooey Chocolate Brownies, for a complete wholesome meal.


Meet Chef Andrea

Pausa’s executive chef and owner, Andrea Giuliani, has been cooking throughout Italy and the Bay Area for over 25 years. The Veneto native came to the United States in 2005, excited to bring his passion for food and wine to California. He draws inspiration from his grandfather’s amazing home cooking and memories of sharing meals together as a family. To bring the Pausa vision to life, Chef Andrea wanted to stay true to his Italian roots while sourcing the freshest local produce from Northern California farms. 

It’s no wonder why this Michelin Bib Gourmand award winner has been rated among the top 19 Italian restaurants in the U.S. From charcuterie cured onsite to wood-fired pizzas to authentic Italian gelatos, everything is made in house for a truly unforgettable farm-to-table experience.


Take a Pause With Pausa

“Pausa” translates to “pause” in Italian, and Pausa Bar & Cookery was intended to be just that. Pausa offers guests a much-needed break from their fast-paced lives to savor authentic made-from-scratch Italian fare. Here, guests are treated like family:

"… each (dish was) amazingly balanced in flavor, like having a symphony with your 5 senses. I can feel the passion (the) chefs put in each dish. Outstanding customer service. Professional, knowledgeable, and caring with a personal touch. Can't wait to go back for more." - Rosey G. 
"Our light and airy pizza with fresh tomatoes, basil, and melted cheese reminded me of my trip to Italy. Service was exceptional. I rarely give 5 stars but I highly recommend Pausa to take a moment to pause and savor the wonderful flavors this restaurant has to offer." - Andrew T.

For a fuss-free dinner made from the freshest, seasonal ingredients, now you can have the Pausa experience delivered to your doorstep.


From Pausa’s Kitchen to Your Doorstep

To bring you a true taste of what the Bay area has to offer in terms of great Italian cooking, we’ve added two Pausa pizzas to the Dinnerbell Menu, for a limited time only. After being freshly prepared using the highest-quality local ingredients, each Neapolitan pizza is fully cooked and frozen, ready to reheat and serve within minutes.


Choose from Margherita or Calabrese (or try them both!). Each is prepared on Pausa’s famous 72-hour-maturated dough and blistered in their wood-fired oven. The Margherita Pizza is a traditional pie crafted from simple, wholesome ingredients: tomatoes, house-made mozzarella, fresh basil, and extra virgin olive oil imported from Sicily. More adventurous eaters are sure to fall in love with Pausa’s Calabrese Pizza. This pie features tomatoes, house-made mozzarella, house-cured salami, garlic, Sicilian wild oregano, and Calabrian chiles for a hint of spice.
