SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — When San Diego County leaders suspended in-restaurant dining to slow the spread of the coronavirus, many businesses were left to figure out how to feed patrons.
Sardina's Italian Restaurant & Bar on Morena Blvd. was one of those restaurants forced to transition to pickup or delivery only — but did so in a way that appeals to kids (or the kid in us) forced to stay home.
"Looking for something fun to do with your children (and/or partner!) during this unprecedented time?" the restaurant's Facebook post read, introducing a $10 pizza kit. "The kit will include fresh pizza dough, cheese, pepperoni and sauce to make a medium size pizza at home!"

After opening Thursday, the restaurant told 10News it had sold 20 kits in its first three hours and expects a lot more orders.
It's just one of the ways San Diego County restaurants are adjusting to continue serving families.
The City of San Marcos has started a list of restaurants open for takeout or delivery in the city. The North Park area also has a list of eateries offering takeout options.
In addition to specials at favorite restaurants, several food delivery platforms are also working to help out restaurants during COVID-19 closures.
