MILWAUKEE- Yes, you can get authentic Chicago style pizza in Wisconsin and it's never too cold for custard! This week we're handing out Blue Ribbon Awards.

Rosati's Pizza on National just west of Sunnyslope in New Berlin. Manager Mark Wucherpfennig tells us "we just pride ourselves on good customer service" and on it's authentic Chicago style pizza. That's the specialty but Wucherpfennig says you can pretty much order any kind of pizza you want. Also on the menu anything from Italian beef to a Greek salad.

Wucherpfennig says good business is all about setting a good example and keeping things clean of course. "We just stay on top of it, and I got a good crew and that's half the battle." Rosati's in New Berlin had a perfect score on its health inspection and gets out first Blue Ribbon Award.

Over at Fred's Frozen Custard and Grill they sell a lot of burgers. Fred's has been in business at 48th and Vliet since 1967. Now owner Carol Smith Carter wears two hats,

"I'm the cleaner and the owner!" Even when the kitchen is hopping they keep things clean. Smith Carter says "after the big rush they usually clean up and I'm in the morning; I come in in the morning and clean."

For its clean health inspection Fred's gets our second Blue Ribbon Award.
