Shop Howard-Suamico First!

Josephine’s is a made from scratch pizza and pasta house by Ma and Pa — Vickie and Frank and children, Josephine Jack and Melanie. Josephine’s opened June 7, 2004 using rustic and simplistic homemade ingredients. The best homemade pizza east of Italy because the recipe is from Italy.

The craftmanship stands toe to toe with the best in the food world. Making all of the sauces and dough from scratch with no additives or preservatives. Living in the community and supporting it. Hassle free caterings up to 50 miles to make you look like a hero and address your interest to make your life simpler.

Josephine and siblings Jack and Melanie have all taken turns as managers. Working their way up from host phone helpers to pizza and more. Inspired by Frank’s passion for wanting to open a carry out pizza place.

Finding a location in the Suamico area was a challenge, then found the old Burger Barn with lots of room that is located at 2560 Glendale Avenue in the Village of Howard.

Vickie added to the menu offerings with her own and family recipes. Devoted to the most authentic old world Italian cuisine.

Other Recipes from some of the chefs that help get things going and of course others that contributed throughout the years. Josh Pirkle the very first employee still works there today.

Josephine’s Pizza and Pastaria now offers quick grab 12” frozen pizzas in addition to 14” take ‘n bake pizzas.

Delivery still offered through some food apps such as Slice, Door Dash and EatStreet. Beer, wine and basic bar, 14” take ‘n bake pizzas and now quick grab 12” frozen pizzas are also offered.

Josephine’s daughter has carried on son Jack’s hot dog stand tradition. Angelina and her friends — The Wiener Wednesday Gang — sell Chicago style Vienna Beef hot dogs every Wednesday throughout the summer from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Josephine’s has been honored with several first place awards from many pizza tasting competitions for Best Sauce, Best crust, Peoples Choice and others. Awarded Best Catered Lunch in Wisconsin by the number one catering website in America.
