Parkway Pizza, located in the Hiawatha neighborhood of South Minneapolis, specializes in what is known as ”Minneapolis-style pizza”. What’s that? According to the description on their website, it’s characterized by 1) the use of fresh, local ingredients, 2) a thick, zesty sauce with a bite, 3) a thin crust, 4) lots of toppings, 5) cheese on top, and 6) square-cut pieces.
The star of the show, in our opinion, was the sausage. Parkway makes their own. It was flavorful but not overly spiced. It had a hint of sweetness that really made it stand out.
Parkway Pizza is a casual place with a comfortable neighborhood feel to it. The prices are very affordable. Check out their website for coupons.
Our only complaint – if you can call it that – was that the toppings weren’t piled on like promised on the website. Everything else – from the local mozzarella to the zesty sauce – was stand-out. We will definitely be back. We hear the Artichoke Deluxe pizza is amazing.
