Pizza Massimo's

Ferdi Wepener was out and about with his daughter when she stopped at a local pizza place and ordered a pizza; she only had R2, so they made her a mini one.


Rooihuiskraal, Pretoria – R2.00 can’t buy much any more, but to a child, it feels like a world of opportunity. Ferdi Wepener was with his daughter when he witnessed a remarkable act of kindness.

We spoke to Ferdi who confirmed his youngest was quite insistent on ordering and paying for her own pizza. The family were getting a nice takeaway for the evening. They were at the Rooihuiskraal Roman’s Pizza when asked if she could get a pizza for R2.00. The staff there obliged her request and made a pizza for her.

The manager of the store went into the kitchen and instructed the staff to make two small pizzas for the little lady who was very upset that she couldn’t order and pay for her own food.

When the manager came out with two smiley faced pizzas, his daughter was beside herself with excitement. She gladly took her pizza box and paid the manager her R2.00. She was chuffed that she got to place her own order and pay for it herself.

The mini pizza was a simple little smiley face, the perfect option for a young child. Ferdi was so moved by their dedication to helping a little girl; he thanked the branch on his Facebook page.

He said their actions had made his daughter’s day.

Take a look at her pizza below; the manager really made a simple trip for pizza into a sweet moment for a little girl.
