Great tasting pizza. Wide variety of crusts. Honey at the table to enjoy while enjoying the thick crusts. They also make wonderful, large cookies.

Great Plains Sauce & Dough creates a nice variety of pizzas. I am very fond of the Denver crust. That is a wheat thick crust with a rolled edge. I finish off the edge with honey. Truly awesome pizza! The service is good also.
