Welcome to the blog, I guess you all know why we're here.

I want to find the best old fashioned thin crust pizza in the Des Moines area. I'm tired of fancy pizza. I am tired of easy bake oven pizza. I am tired of chain pizza. I am tired of standardized pizza. I want a pizza made in an old fashioned metal pizza oven (stone oven pizza just doesn't do it for me) with simple ingredients. We decided that we need to get something specific so we had the correct sort of test. In this case one pepperoni pizza, one sausage pizza.

I have been at this for almost a year now. Everything here gets posted to my FB page as well. Feel free to comment, feel free to recommend a pizza place if you think it will fit my criteria.

Places that are on our list to try;

Hilltop Lounge & Restaurant
Bianchi Boys Pizza & Pasta
Angelos Pizza
Belluci Pizza House - Boone
Corigliano's Pizzeria
La Pizza House
Sonny's Pizza Bistro
Marino's Italian Restaurant
Pete's Pizza - Indianola  
Encore Pizza
Paul Reveres - South Side 
Jersey Guys Pizza 


  1. You were willing to come all the way to Dubuque. If you're willing to go a little further, Manny's in Savanah, Ill might be the one. They are super thin, super crispy and very yummy. The place is the opposite of fancy but worth the trip.

  2. Dubuque was on the way on one of our trips. Looking at the map, Savanah isn't that far out of the way for a couple of place we tend to go. We may have to take a wander through. Thank you for the tip.
