(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A unique, new pizza restaurant made its anticipated debut in St. Joseph Saturday.

iL Lazzarone opened on Frederick Avenue and houses a brick oven shipped from Italy.

Owner Erik Borger says the oven is the only one in America made on the Main Street OF Naples.

He says the feedback from locals so far has been really positive.

"This is very different style pizza than any kind of American pizza." Borger said. "We have over 30 craft beers here so we are doing something different and we love the response. Everybody tells us they love everything and we're just really happy to help people."

The new pizzeria is open 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Friday and Saturday hours are 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
