I need to add Jackís Pizza to the list. Founded in 1966 in the Indianapolis area. Edge to edge toppings and square cut slices.

Not to be confused with the frozen brand at the box stores.

We have been getting it often. Just had some last night. [emoji3]

Hmmm yeah I agree with whoever said the thin crust, blended cheese, edge to edge toppings sounds like what I've always known as St. Louis-style pizza (Imo's).

I went to Valpo for a year once upon a time, so I had Greeks pizza a time or two. Can confirm that it's really good, but yes different from the thin crust, edge to edge style previously described. Definitely recommend it for anyone who might find themselves in Valparaiso, IN.

ISO: Dark red/crimson mist kettle (cooker condition). 18" preferred, but a 22" would be awesome too.
Also ISO a current generation WSM 18".     
Grill on!

Yeah I donít mean to imply Indiana owns or started those trends but seems to be a common on the Indiana based pizza chains. Except Greeks.

Pizza king is still my personal local favorite.

Did your pizza king have arcade games?

We stop at the greensburg pizza king every year when we cut our Christmas tree down in new point. They have a small arcade room that myself and the kids play games at while waiting. They have pole position!  My kids are 21 and 18 but still amuse me by playing them with me.

I though the finest example of Indiana pizza was Noble Romans.

I didnít know it was founded in Indiana until I saw your post. Thatís a good one. Iíve always thought they had the best tasting sauce and their breadsticks and cheese dip are my favorite. Itís a shame they have declined in locations through the years.

I loved Noble Romanís growing up.
The was one on Wabash Ave in Terre Haute that we went to all the time.
It had the window to the kitchen where you could watch the guys twirl the dough.
The place was the greatest.

Originally from Fort Wayne, I remember Greeks Pizza in the village at Ball State.  Very good.  Relocated to the west coast 17 years ago and havenít fallen in love with a pizza out here yet.  Also, one of my favorite things about pizza king (and other Midwest pizzerias) was the ground up sausageófinely ground. My favorite pizzaís in Indiana: mother bears-Bloomington, pizza express- Bloomington, Munchie Emporium-ft. Wayne, Greeks-Muncie, big daddyís-Angola.

We may have been at ball state at the same time. Do you remember burritos as big as your head? 

And yeah I love noble romans as well.
