What Is Kansas City-Style Pizza?!?!

The answer is not BBQ chicken . . . Instead, here's a worthwhile Saturday afternoon missive focused on foodies entertaining with delightful adjectives for the crowd-pleaser that this cowtown has yet to perfect.

Food Critics: The Best Pizzas In Kansas City In 2019

Unlike Chicago or New York City, Kansas City isn't famous for its pizza offerings. But that hasn't stopped area chefs and restaurants from developing their own distinctive pies - including two Lee's Summit chefs who claim they've crafted a "Kansas City-style pizza" and a local spot that offers toppings such as crab meat and Indian spices.

What is it? You go in and get a decent pizza one night and a couple nights later you get served a piece of crap. Probably leftovers from previous customers.

They are in smaller areas but Gambinos is good pizza. Make fun of me but I like Original Pizza too, especially the store on College & Antioch where I can also play pinball. Can't go wrong with Minskys either.

Cauliflower Pizza at Costco is best I’ve had ever! (In frozen section)
Heat it 5 minutes past what it says - super crispy and awesome!
Makes the chain pizzas taste like cardboard.

Old Shawnee Pizza FTW. Great local family owned place. Servers don't always change and always do a great job. The one in Shawnee rolls old school and the newer Lenexa location is a little more hip.

I've been wanting to try the cauliflower pizza at Costco but was afraid it wouldn't be good. I think I'll try it.

I miss the old BBQ pizza from Pizza Hut. They have really cheeped it out.

Is Old Shawnee affiliated at all with Pizza Shoppe? I can’t detect any difference between the two. My vote would have to go to Minskys.

Old Shawnee used to be franchise of pizza shoppe. The franchisee wouldn't allow the original Shawnee location to chnge the menu at all. The owner of Old Shawnee said FU and spun off. You may notice Old Shawnee has a far more extensive menu and a full bar. Wouldn't have happened as pizza shoppe.
