There’s never a bad time to have a pizza, but let’s be honest: pizza tastes just a bit better when it’s shared with friends. Of course, that only works if you’ve got enough pizza to satisfy everyone. When you’re feeding a crowd – or are so hungry you could eat a whole pizza yourself – these seven pizza joints in Wisconsin are where you want to be. They serve truly humungous, oversized, can’t-fit-it-on-the-table pizzas that will make sure no one leaves the table hungry.
1. Pizza Pub - Wisconsin Dells
If ever there were a place that should be prepared to feed the hungry masses, it's in the Wisconsin Dells. This kid-friendly spot knows you and your family will work up an appetite running around town and playing in the water, so they've got a menu that will make everyone happy, including their 20" Big Kahuna sized pizzas to feed the whole crew.
Address: 1455 Wisconsin Dells Pkwy, Wisconsin Dells, WI, 53965.
2. Jolly Rogers Pizza - New London
This is a 26" pie that Jolly Rogers Pizza challenges folks to finish on their own. It's truly bigger than the table and requires an extra-large tray just to deliver it. Folks rave about this spot that's been in the area for decades, saying it's the best meal in town.
Address: 220 N Water Street, New London, WI, 54961.
3. Saraphino's - St. Francis
Located south of Milwaukee near the airport, this pizza is called the 747 and it measures nearly three feet long! The 16" by 32" inch rectangle will surely feed even the hungriest family. This little Italian restaurant in a strip mall is easy to overlook, but the food is amazing and the pizza will make you want to come back for more.
Address: 3074 East Layton Avenue, St Francis, WI, 53235.
4. Ian's Pizza - Madison
Known as a place to pick up a giant slice until the wee hours of the morning, you can also order whole pies from Ian's. They wouldn't be able to serve up those big slices without making a truly humungous pizza. This 20" pie comes with all your standard topping options, but you can also order the weird and wacky combinations that helped make Ian's famous. Mac and cheese, Smokey the Bandit and cheesy potato are all options, plus tons of other great choices.
State Street Address: 100 State Street, Madison, WI, 53703.
Campus Address: 319 N Frances Street, Madison, WI, 53703.
5. Pizza Shuttle - Milwaukee
These folks used to host a pizza-eating contest with their 28" inch monster pizza that included a cash prize. That's since been discontinued, but they still make the massive pizza. One of the most interesting and underrated places in the city, Pizza Shuttle has been serving up pies to the East Side for 34 years. Pro tip: Get on their mailing list to receive massively good coupons to your inbox. These folks have a large delivery area and you'll want an excuse to take advantage.
Address: 1827 North Farwell Avenue, Milwaukee, WI, 53202.
6. Polito's Pizza - Wausau, LaCrosse, Rothschild, Oshkosh, Wisconsin Rapids, and Stevens Point.
This place is so well-liked that they continue to open new branches and have even expanded into Minnesota. This pizza literally is bigger than the table. It's a full 8" and one pound heavier than their standard large pizza and it's truly massive. It turns out 28" of pizza is a lot of dough, cheese, and toppings. They'll split the toppings up three different ways since they know you're going to need help finishing this beast of a pizza and they want everyone to be happy.
Wausau Address: 311 3rd Street, Wausau, WI, 54403.

7. Classic Slice - Bay View
You know the pizza is impressive when folks surround it to take pictures. These guys also love serving up a giant, New York-style slice which means you have to make a pretty darn big pizza. You'll love the crisp on the crust and the nice variety of topping options. They have gluten-free and vegetarian choices to go along with an already long list of choices.
Address: 2797 South Kinnickinnic Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53207
