Few foods speak to the American soul like pizza. Pizzas have become the most popular food in America with entire football fields eaten daily. In Missouri you can find a pizza places all over. You can make pizza however you like it. It doesn’t have to be unhealthy, maybe you use it to pile on the veggies for the kids. Or it can be a decadent special treat for yourself and family with all that oozy-gooey cheese you love.
There are also several different styles of pizza. The Chicago deep dish, famous for its thick crust topped with mounds of cheese and chunky tomato sauce is an excellent example. Other popular styles include Greek style, Neapolitan, Sicilian, and perhaps even Missouri style?
You may love only a specific style of pizza or you may love them all and enjoy savoring the differences of each. We focused on trying to choose not specific styles but a variety of styles that stood out in Missouri because we want you to be able to find something for every palette in your family.

After trying PaPPo’s, like many customers, you might find that any other pizza just doesn’t measure up. They don’t measure up because they just aren’t willing or are not able to invest in a scratch menu with the quality ingredients that PaPPo’s uses and bake the old fashioned way on a stone hearth oven. It takes a little longer to handcraft and bake their pizzas on hearth ovens, but honestly you can taste the difference and very few places have as many choices as PaPPo’s gives you.
