Malawi's Pizza

Serving up amazing pizza, pasta, salads and community love!

Malawi's Pizza With A Purpose is a new, exciting and delicious restaurant nestled in the Spotsylvania Towne Centre's beautiful courtyard area. They offer up FRESH customizable gourmet pizzas, delicious pastas, breadsticks, salads local wines and brews and more! Not only does their pizza come with the freshest hand picked ingredients in the industry, they also have a purpose. For every meal you buy, they donate a nutritious meal to a child in Malawi, Africa. It’s one-to-one, and it’s a measurable impact that is saving lives across the globe. 

I had the chance to sit down with the awesome owner, Rebecca Church and her husband, local Fredericksburg native, Patrick to talk about why they started this venture and how they are impacting us on the local level. After a rough pregnancy and the birth of her beautiful baby boy, Rebecca knew she wanted to start a business venture with her husband and one that made the world a better place for their son. The funny thing was she swore that she would never enter the restaurant industry. When her mother came to be with her when she had the baby, she told Rebecca that she was really lucky because she was missing out on her very favorite dessert pizza, the Berries and Cream at Malawi's Pizza in Utah. After doing a little research, Rebecca knew that she had to dig more into this amazing company and find out some more about their food, culture and opportunity. Patrick flew out to Utah to learn as much as he could about the company and instantly knew this was what they needed to bring back to Fredericksburg. 

At the local level, Patrick and Rebecca give to the Fredericksburg Food Bank and have barrels set up in their restaurant for donations. For every box of cereal that you donate at their restaurant, they will give you 20% off of your bill. Saving money and giving back, a win-win!

We look forward to partnering with Malawi's pizza here at Macaroni Kid Fredericksburg with family-friendly community events. Our first event will be kicking off on December 12th, 2017 at 11:30 am. We will be holding a Mommy and Me Christmas Tree Pizza Baking Event. The cost is $7.00 + Tax per participant and includes 1 Pizzetta and 1 Kids Drink (Free Refills).  Participants will be given one dough ball and all the tools to build their very own Christmas Tree Shaped pizza! Once participants have assembled their pizzas the Malawi's Team will bake them for you in our stone oven to be enjoyed. *Gluten-free dough is available at an additional cost per participant.

As a gluten free momma, I was so excited to find out that most of their pizzas a customizable to include gluten free crust! I tried out the Pepperoni, Sausage and Mushroom pizza, the Wedge Salad and The Berries and Cream Dessert pizza and I have to say it was one of the best gluten free options I have ever tasted! Score!

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant, their owners and their outlook on community giving. Have it a try for yourself and make sure to tell them Macaroni Kid Fredericksburg sent you!
