We got the Signature crust in a small and it was delicious and enough for 2 people. The crust was flaky and buttery and oooh so good. The onion rings were homemade as well and to die for.

They have a great variety on their menu from thin crust to deep-dish and specialties. We ordered a couple Chicago style pizzas and were not disappointed. They take around... More

I will admit to being a pizza fanatic. In the 70's I discovered Chicago deep dish STUFFED pizza while in Chicago for a few years. Definitely my favorite pizza. Wig and Pen, in Ankeny near the Des Moines community college, has a deep dish stuffed pizza that is the next best thing to being in Chicago. It is not as... More

We visited Wig and Pen tonight and it was great! The pizza was so deciduous. We also ordered onion rings and they were good but not great for the price. That pizza though we couldn't get enough. Our server Nik handled everything with ease. They were packed and he was swamped but he made it look effortless. We will definitely... More

I have been here many times. We have an office Christmas party there every year. I sometimes go there for pizza on Friday night. It is a great place for a large group to meet. The staff is friendly and fast. The prices are competitive.
