Doughboys Pizza was opened in Waunakee in October of 2008 by Zach Witt and Alex Kugle. The two went to high school together and both worked in multiple restaurant/bars. They eventually met up at the Pizza Oven in Monona which Zach’s dad at that time owned. Although he wound up selling the business Zach and Alex wanted to continue in the pizza game. After many long discussions and tedious planning they left the Pizza Oven and came to Waunakee with their own brand. The two with help of friends and family came up with “Doughboys”.
The two wanted to keep everything local, homemade, and fresh. The special cheese blend is a combo of 100% Wisconsin cheese. They make every batch of dough and sauce in house with their own unique recipes. Their specialty is the thin and crispy crust. All vegetables are also fresh and cut and chopped daily by the employees. But it’s not only pizza at Doughboys, they also have a delicious salad bar. On top of that many appetizers and dinners are also available.
Inside the restaurant is also unique. On one side there is a full liquor/beer bar with three HD TVs perfect for watching the big game. It is decorated with a plethora of Wisconsin sports teams memorabilia. On the other side is a large dining room great for family dining. When the parents need a break there is a game room in view from the dining room for the kids. Centered in the dining room is the salad bar and pizza buffet. (Pizza buffet Mon-Friday 11-2 & Monday 5-8) On the walls are many vintage signs various artwork. At the front counter there are cutouts displaying the pizza sizes making it easy to choose. This includes there STATE RECORD 32” PIZZA, which is perfect for sports teams and large groups of people.
