Smack dab in the middle of fancy California–style flavors and floppy, sloppy East Coast slices, southwest Missouri is filled with a hodge podge of pizzerias serving up a little bit of everything. In addition to 417-landers who are hand-crafting fresh artisanal pies with locally grown ingredients, restaurant owners came here from as far as Italy, as close as St. Louis and everywhere in between, and they brought along age-old recipes for foldable New York–style crusts, robust Chicago-style sauces and dozens of secret spice combos and cheese blends. But it doesn’t stop there. We’ve also recently gained a food truck that serves up wood-fired pies, plus a few spots where you can order pizza by the slice. Read on to learn about all the pizzerias and restaurants that create southwest Missouri’s very own perfectly seasoned pizza scene.
