Kansas City – Pizzabella

Pizzabella, one of Kansas City’s very best locally owned pizzerias have two locations in the area serving up some serious pizza pork. The original location is in the hip Crossroads district just south of downtown Kansas City, and the newest location, opened in 2013, is located in the Mission Farms area of Overland Park, Kansas. The name is French for beautiful pizza.

The story, as it was relayed to me, is that the owner, a small-town Kansas guy, always wanted to be in the restaurant business. He was able to buy the Crossroads location from his former employer and has been fortunate enough to expand to a second location. Whatever the story, the wood fired pizza is excellent; but then again, I’m yet to find a wood fired pizza that isn’t!  I shared a delicious chorizo pizza with my cousin Sterling, a Kansas City pizza aficionado. We ate at the original location which features garage door design that allows nearly the entire front end restaurant to open up during favorable weather.

Our pizza included fresh tomato, basil pesto, pork chorizo, roasted red peppers, ricotta cheese and parsley.  Some of the other pork menu options include a charcuterie plate, a sausage pizza and a Prosciutto pizza.

The name of the restaurant was certainly reflected in our beautiful and delicious pizza. For more information on other great Kansas City area pizzerias’ check out our blog entries for Spin Neapolitan Pizza and Grinder’s Pizza.

Until next time,
