Make Your Own Pizza With More Than A Million Topping Combinations At This New Wisconsin Restaurant
Pizza is one of the very best foods. It’s practically perfect in every way. But if there were one complaint to have about pizza, it’s that more often than not, when you’re sharing with other people, at least one of those people is having to eat something they’re not thrilled about. Pizza is mostly a group food, but getting everyone to agree on what to put on the pizza is nigh on impossible. In a household with picky eaters or siblings that just like to mess with one another, finding a neutral ground may as well be war. In the fast-casual food arena, we’ve stepped it up to sandwiches, pastas and even shawarma and falafel bowls where the customer can walk down the line and pick the meats, sauces and toppings they want to create their own, perfect-for-them, meal. It’s about time that concept made its way to pizza.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Customizing your food isn't a new concept - we've all been picking our toppings at sub sandwich shops for a long time now. But the idea that we can create a fully personal pizza that will be hot and ready to eat for us a few minutes later is a relatively new concept. A few different spots like this have popped up, but at Pizza Lab in the Wisconsin Dells, they've taken the concept to a whole new level.
The menu here says they have five sauces, six cheeses, seven meats and more than two dozen toppings. You'll get your own 11-inch pizza crust (though they use all those awesome options to make massive salads, as well) and you build it to suit. Can't decide? They'll do a half-and-half pizza. There are also 11 finishing drizzles and salad dressings and they say that means there are more than 87 million ways to create and enjoy a pizza here. Though they say there are two dozen toppings, they are always adding and expanding their options.
Doritos on your pizza? What about tortilla strips or bbq potato chips? You can have any or all of those. Vegan cheese? They've got you covered. Sauerkraut? Sure, this is Wisconsin after all. For the most part, if you can dream it, these folks can achieve it. The perfect pizza is really just waiting for you to come make it. Start with a standard pizza sauce or their spicy version. Or go nuts with pesto or alfredo or bbq, as well as garlic butter and olive oil. There are six types of standard cheese options, plus an upcharge for fresh mozzarella or the vegan cheese.
The end result is that everyone in your group has the perfect pie just for them. There's no compromising on toppings or negotiations as everyone tries to figure out what they want. The pizzas go in a fire-hot oven and come out a few minutes later hot, melty and waiting for you to dig in. Pizza Lab is basically the pizza joint of your dreams. These are the pies you'll think about for months to come since they're made to your exact specifications.
Not only does Pizza Lab make some of the most perfect pizza in the world, but it's a fabulously fun spot to hang out. No one here takes anything too seriously because frankly, pizza should be fun. Don't be surprised if someone is shoveling snow out front in an inflatable T. Rex costume or you see someone make a pizza with melty Peeps on it. Got an idea for an off-the-wall topping? Chances are these folks will at least think about your ideas.
They're currently a dine-in and carry-out spot only and don't take phone orders, so plan to head on over and settle in for a cozy meal in a really comfortable and welcoming environment. They're located in a strip mall, but don't let that keep you away. You'd be missing out on one of the best meals you can get in the Dells if you do.
Pizza Lab is a totally unique and amazing dining experience that's perfect for a quick meal or for settling the in-fighting when your tired family is worn out by the excess of the Dells and just needs to settle in for a meal that leaves everyone happy and full. You will love being able to satisfy the wants of everyone in your group in one quick trip. Pizza really is the answer to so many problems and Pizza Lab makes that even easier.
The massive stone hearth oven gets up to 650 degrees, cooking your pizza in about five minutes. Then they move it in front of the fire to make sure everything crisps up, giving you that perfect chewy-to-crunchy ratio on the crust and making sure that everyone in your group is happily chowing on their food quickly. There are no massive wait times or hours until the pie can be delivered. You'll barely be settled in your seats before your pizzas start coming out of the oven.
Pizza Lab is basically doing everything right. It's fresh-made dough every morning, sauce made using California tomatoes and the very best of Wisconsin cheeses, including Grande and BelGioso options. This isn't mass-produced or frozen dough discs. This is local and fresh and oh-so-delicious. It's the dinner of your Wisconsin Dells dreams.
Dells Pizza Lab is located at 332 State Hwy 13, Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965.
You can find out more about this great spot on their website. The online menu shows some but not all of the topping options they keep in house. You can find out more about specials and see mouthwatering pictures on their Facebook page.
Another fabulous off-the-beaten-path restaurant in the Dells is Edytka’s Polish Restaurant.
You’ll fall in love with this family-owned little spot.
