Wheat State Pizza! has more kinds of pizza than a high school football coach has inspiring halftime speeches. The abundance comes from a rainbow of options diners mix-and-match to create unique combinations, starting with a whole wheat, white, or gluten-free crust topped with homemade sauces in flavors such as traditional red and whipped cream cheese. On that base, diners can construct a masterpiece pie from a palette of more than 30 toppings including standards such as pepperoni and sausage along with gourmet variants sunflower seeds, avocado, and soy cheese. Though diners don't need to assemble their own combination to enjoy a pie, as, like the Christmas list of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, the menue includes 15 types of specialty pizza. Creations such as the chicken carbonara treat mouths to a velvety blend of alfredo sauce, chicken, mushrooms, mozzarella, and bacon atop a hand-tossed or thin crust. Non-pizza options include the Crispy Chicken Salad and philly cheese steak sandwiches with chicken or beef. Diners can end their meals on a sweet note with one of the restaurant's medley of dessert pizzas, which layer wheat crust with saccharine toppings such as cream-cheese frosting, and apple pie filling.
