With pizza dough, sauce and toppings for four personal pizzas, each $20 pack is available at the Ankeny, Drake and downtown locations via curbside pick-up and delivery. All tips are donated to team members who had to be laid off due to the pandemic’s impacts on business. (Three locations across the metro; fongspizza.com)
