Now’s your chance to own a pizza place fit for a king: Pizza Del Re, one of the Chippewa Valley’s most beloved and longest last purveyors of pizzas, is on the market, according to listing posted online Monday by Team Theisen at Re/Max Real Estate Group. For $750,000 it can all be yours: the building at 911 N. Hastings Way, as well as the business, its equipment, not to mention three lots and two upstairs apartments.

Pizza Del Re is legendary locally for its every-day pizza buffet, where for four decades countless families, couples, and Little League teams have lined up for thin-crusted goodness. The eatery has frequently landed atop the Best Pizza category in Volume One’s Best of the Chippewa Valley Reader Poll.

Here’s the announcement, via Facebook:
