Taste Twin Cities Pizza Tour


Jump on our bus and enjoy a slice of Minneapolis on the Twin Cities' only pizza tour. Pizza lovers will eat their way through four local pizza joints where you'll compare pizza crusts, cheese and sauces while learning the history of these Minneapolis staples. Experience authentic local pizzerias who have been featured on many "Best Pizza in the Twin Cities" lists and get a taste of the best pie in the Midwest from a Minneapolis favorite, the first coal burning made pizzeria in Minnesota, a Minneapolis legend, and the home of football pizza!


  • Coal fired pizza featuring a crust that is crisp but not chewy, thin but not crackery and firm enough to hold a slice with one hand.  
  • Only found here in Minnesota - home of the football pizza served up with their "green sauce"
  • Making pizza since 1963 this "Minnesota style" pizza served up in squares and features sweet and garlicky sauce and the mega-blanket of cheese 
  • Twin Cities' first modern boutique pizza parlor with whole wheat-based crust in the specialty pies

Tasting menus and food stops are subject to change without notice. At this time, we cannot provide an alternative menu. We cannot guarantee that the food or drinks on the tour were made in a facility free of the following items:  peanuts, tree-nuts, dairy, shellfish, meat or other food allergies.
