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.
In addition to specials at favorite restaurants, several food delivery platforms are also working to help out restaurants during COVID-19 closures.
