Along with most things this summer, a new habit has formed for the chums in Iowa. Every week since my return to the beloved state, we have gathered at Bill's Pizza in Ankeny, Iowa.
The restaurant offers a setting where we are encouraged by Bill to sit, relax, and enjoy the afternoon along with some yummy pizza. One of the first things you notice about Bill's are the characatures around the restaurant. They are of local "celebrities" and/or friends of Bill. It's fun to see if you can guess who is who.
But, back to the pizza!
The pizza is VERY good. I am sure that any pizza that we tried at Bill's would be delicious, but we have a soft spot for the DUTCH OVEN. Creative in its name, it offers onions, green peppers, sausage, pepperoni, and Canadian bacon on a perfect thin crust. A large has been perfect as we have three regulars and one rotating guest each week. Two slices a piece.
Having the DUTCH OVEN would be enough, but we always start with the side salad. It comes with not one, but TWO containers of the house dressing, Creamy Parmesan.
Finally, the service is complete when Bill brings out our bill and fresh baked chocolate chip cookies! Can you believe that?! Free chocolate chip cookies!
Maybe if we keep up with our Bill's Pizza habit, we can end up on the wall of celebrities!
