About Us

Pleasant Unity Pizza opened its doors on June 8th 1979 in the empty space of a former market. It was established by two couples who feared losing their jobs. They began their business as pick-up and delivery. Sales started off slowly but word of mouth spread quickly. As the business began to grow, Priscilla and Russell Shaffer II took over the business themselves. After working at the shop for six years, Clayton Aukerman became manager in October of 2000. Soon after, Russell Shaffer III became part of the team. Russ, wanting to enlarge the business, opened a sit-down restaurant in October of 2001. On May 1, 2008, after 29 great years, Priscilla and Russell retired, handing full control over to their son.

While picking up your food, it is not uncommon to see us making our fresh dough and sauce, totaling around 800 pounds and 50 gallons each per week. We are hooked on our stone ovens and love the taste and uniqueness that it brings to the pizza. We refuse to become commercial with conveyer ovens. We enjoy the hard work the oven brings and the fast paced environment of a busy kitchen. We work side by side with many great people who care about making great pizza, all while having fun. You may pick from one of our specialty and gourmets pizzas or you can stick with our traditional red sauce pizza. Our crust isn’t too thick or too thin. It’s right in the middle to satisfy most. However, with special request you can ask for a little thinner or a little thicker. We also offer a large selection of strombolis, subs, pasta dinners, sides, and more.

Pleasant Unity Pizza and Restaurant is open seven days a week for dine-in, pick-up, and delivery. We open everyday at 11. Sunday through Thursday we are open until 10. On Fridays and Saturdays we are open until 11. The dining room closes one hour before pick-up and delivery. We are located at 2081 Route 130, Main Street in Pleasant Unity. Parking is located behind the building.

We hope you enjoy the food because we certainly have had fun creating it.
