A new calzone restaurant on Milwaukee’s east side is scheduled to open this week.
Mike and Georgina Styke are opening a franchise of D.P. Dough at 1515 E. North Ave. The location was previously an Open Pantry convenience store. The shop will be the chain’s only Wisconsin location.
D.P. Dough serves a menu of mainly calzones, along with chicken wings, tater tots and different flavors of breadsticks. The fast-service restaurant will scale up to also serve salads, Georgina Styke said.
Signature dishes include options like the “Maui Wowi Zone,” which is stuffed with pineapple, ham and mozzarella, and the “Italian Zone,” stuffed with salami, ham, pepperoni, mozzarella, parmesan and ricotta.
Customers can also create their own calzone.
The Stykes plan to open the restaurant for a soft launch beginning Wednesday. D.P. Dough offers dine-in, carry-out and delivery service and maintains hours late into the night. The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
