About a month ago, a good friend asked me to accompany him on a work road trip to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It’s about a five hour drive from Minneapolis and I hadn’t spent a lot of time with this particular friend in a while, so I said yes. Who doesn’t love a good road trip?
We decided to stay in Racine, Wisconsin, a suburb to the south of Milwaukee, which is famous for having the largest population of Danes in the USA. And, of course, where there are Danish people, there are Danish kringles. If you’ve never tried it before, we implore you to order one right now. They deliver all over the world.
But this blog isn’t about kringles, or baked goods for that matter. This blog is about pizza. So I told my friend to ask his coworkers where the best pizza in the city was and we’d try it out on our last night there.
Unanimously his workmates recommend an Italian joint called Infusino’s Restaurant and Pizzeria that was actually also in Racine! We couldn’t have planned that if we tried.
Infusinos Pizza Locations
It appears like Infusino’s has three locations. We friend and I stopped at their main spot located at 3225 Rapids Drive Racine, Wisconsin 53404. It was a spacious facility with a small parking lot. Their other places look to be very different, one being a banquet hall and the other just being for takeout or delivery.
Infusinos Pizza was right off one of the main “thoroughfares” of Racine, if we can call it that, and was very easy to find.
They had a very large and very Italian style sign that pointed us the right direction. Sadly, the work van we were driving had a janky unreliable GPS, so we were grateful for the big sign.
Infusino’s Racine Italian Atmosphere
When we got inside, we were greeted by a cordial waitress and a European-American atmosphere of a bar on the left and a dining room through to the right. They were quite busy at dinner time and we didn’t get a table right away, so we had to sit and wait a bit.
There were multiple TVs in the bar area showing the local baseball team losing.
The waiters and busboys were frantically running around in front of us to and fro through the hallway where patrons were waiting to be seated. It felt like the building just wasn’t big enough for all of us there. But I guess that happens when you’re popular and delicious.
The Infusino’s Pizza Menu
The pizza menu was not easy to understand, especially when only expecting Italian style choices. They had 7 types of different pizzas in the top section, then the listing of toppings in the bottom section. Both were split up by pie size and subsequent prices.
The seven types of pizza they have are: Pizza A La Calabrese, Sicilian Style Pizza, Vegas Pizza, Infusino’s Famous Pan Pizza, Virgin Crust Pizza, Thin Crust Pizza, and Airplane Carrier Pizza. Their list of topping combinations seemed normal, at least. Oh wait, they have anchovies, a not so strange pizza topping.
Looking at that menu picture alone – which would you choose?
Our Infusino Choice
I don’t remember exactly how my friend made our decision, but I think it had to do partly with the recommendation of his coworkers and the waitress. She challenged us that we wouldn’t be able to eat more than 2 slices of the Infusino’s Famous Fan Pizza.
We ordered a large with pepperoni and sausage. We were not prepared for what we were about to eat. The blessed waitress was not joking when she challenged us on how big the slices actually were. And they weren’t only big, they were thick.
Thankfully, I was able to eat two whole slices and retain my pride. Barely. My friend could barely finish one and we were collectively shamed.
This meant, though, that we had cold pizza for our road trip back to Minnesota! Yes, we here at Homemade Pizza School strongly believe that you are allowed to eat pizza for breakfast.
Our Infusinos Pizza Review
Overall, we do recommend a stop at Infusino’s Pizza in Racine, Wisconsin, if you happen to be there and are hankering for a thick Italian pie.
The pizza was filling. You do not need to go big, as it’s already more than thick enough for any hearty meal.
Just like Lilys Pizza Boston, there was a creepy old painting hanging up on the wall. I guess these are the original Infusino’s Pizza founders? Bless the ancestors of the Infusino fam.
Another con would be the confusing menu. No real explanations besides arbitrary thickness of crusts. Maybe add some comparisons, graphs, or photos? Hey, we’re not marketing experts but user experience can always be improved.
