  • 🔥 My spicy-loving heart went with the Pepperoni Popper Pizza — a play on America's most beloved appetizer.

What I liked: These New York-style slices are fold-in-half huge, but the quantity doesn't compromise the quality.

  • This hit all of my pizza standards: Hot, gooey mozzarella cheese. A quality, thick tomato sauce. Yeasty crust with a little bit of chew.

  • The blend of toppings makes it special — salty bacon and pepperoni + crispy onions and jalapeños are obviously a winning combo.

Pro tip: During lunch, you can get a slice, breadsticks and a drink for $7.

Open: 11am-9pm Sun-Thurs; 11am-10pm Fri-Sat; 2330 University Ave., Des Moines
