Reeds Spring Pizza Co., and my quest for fabulous pizza

On Wednesday, I was at a press conference at Silver Dollar City and on my way home, I decided to stop at the Reeds Spring Pizza Co.

This tiny pizza joint was named as one of the best pizza places in the country by USA Today, a couple of years ago.

I’ve wanted to try it ever since, but I didn’t want to drive two hours roundtrip for a slice of pie when we have such good pizza here.

But I was only 5 miles away on Wednesday, so I drive there.

I ordered the Galaxy, which was probably one of the more boring choices. You can get pizza topped with cashews, hot sauce and a variety of other toppings there, but I love a good old fashioned pizza.

The galaxy had green peppers, marvelous pepperoni, sausage, onion and black olives. Simple but delicious.

The pizza was great. I don’t think I’d drive two hours for it, but it was delicious. The crust is thin and not even remotely greasy.  The ingredients tasted incredibly fresh.

But I have as much to say about the atmosphere and the beer selection as I do the pizza.

The walls are mustard yellow and people have written all over them. One wall is glass shelving and showcases vintage cameras.

There graffiti continues in the bathroom and the things written on the wall– and the toilet– will leave you either in shock, or in stitches, depending on your personality.

I thought it was pretty funny.

Hey, I even took a selfie in there.

The beers on tap were outstanding! I wouldn’t expect a tiny pizza shop in a small town to have this great selection of craft beers, but they do. You can get mead from The Leaky Roof Meadery; or Mother’s Brewing Co., or my favorite new beer, a Chocolate Wheat from Shock Top. Awesome stuff.

If you’re ever in the area, the Reeds Spring Pizza Co., is worth a visit.

When I got home, my husband and I started talking about our favorite pizza and we couldn’t decide what our favorite is. I LOVE pizza. Thin crust, thick crust, Chicago style, you name it. I love it. What about you?

Any pizza place i must visit on my next trip?
