Gusano’s Pizza – Joplin, MO

Spread the love

Typically a Friday night for us consists of eating pizza.  Ok, not always, but there for a while, yes that was the case.  When Gusano’s in Joplin opened in December of 2009, we eventually wandered in there.  Now, this is our go-to place for pizza.  Yeah, it’s that good.

And the cool thing is you can get Chicago style deep dish pizza.

I watched a special on the travel channel where they compared Chicago style pizza to New York Style Pizza.  New York style is larger slices that are to be folded up and almost eaten like a sandwich because “New Yorker’s are always on the go.”  Chicago style was created to be a sit down and “eat with a fork and knife” style pizza.  I always found that to be interesting.

Anyway back to Gusano’s… But you definitely don’t have to get Chicago style pizza.  They have the thin crust as well, or I think it’s referred to as original.  Either way, it’s not Chicago style :).

Generally when it is my parents, my husband & my {step}daughter, we get a larger Carnivore Craze and a small Chaplain.  I eat a little of both, hubby, dad & daughter eat the Carnivore and my mom generally sticks with the Chaplain.

The Chaplain – An Oil Based Pie with Chicken, Artichoke Hearts, Purple Onions, Tomatoes, Mozzarella & Feta Cheese.

This is the Carnivore Craze – Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Canadian Bacon & Hamburger

We have also tried their Hot Wings, the Pizzadilla & salads.  It’s all pretty darn good, I must say!

If you’re in the mood for pizza and either in:

  • Arkansas
    • Bella Vista
