At Rosa's Pizza, you'll find pies bearing all your favorite toppings like pepperoni, sausage, olives, and mushrooms. But the chefs here also create pizzas that are a little more creative. One might arrive bearing alfredo sauce and chicken or shrimp, while another sports classic taco ingredients, including seasoned meat, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, tortilla chips, and taco sauce. The chefs even build a breakfast pizza topped with ham, sausage, bacon, and scrambled eggs. But whether you decide to take the traditional route or branch out to try something new, you'll want to be sure to save room for the shop's popular cheesebread, or its boneless wings, which come in classic flavors such as barbecue.

The full list of specialty pizzas includes several more; take the hassle out of haggling over individual ingredients and boldly cast your straight-ticket ballot for the pizza party that your conscience dictates. Alternatively, you can create your own game-changing, custom pizza by selecting up to seven pie-worthy toppings to adorn your large creation.

When Spokane natives and Adelo’s Take-N-Bake Pizza owners Matt and Kim Howes decided to open their restaurant in 2008, they wanted to offer, in their own words, "great pizza at a great value." After four years and gaining a following in the community, Adelo’s Take-N-Bake Pizza continually strives to appease. Customers can construct their own pizzas, matching four types of crust, including their very own gluten-free, with six house-made sauces, hand-grated 100% whole-milk mozzarella, and more than 25 toppings. The gluten-free option came about when they discovered Kim’s gluten allergy, and, as a result, they knew they would have to adjust their approach to pizza. However, instead of simply declaring the pies off-limits, they spent their time in the kitchen tweaking recipes and researching alternative ingredients that would keep their slices both delicious and healthy. The result was a gluten-free dough derived from rice, potato, and tapioca flours that helped bring pizza back into the lives of celiac sufferers and earned the restaurant accreditation through the National Gluten Intolerance Group in 2011. Today, that dough forms the basis of their gluten-free specialty pies, which range from the pineapple-sprinkled Hawaiian and creamy garlic chicken to the jalapeno burn packed with peppers and spicy sausage. No matter what pie they choose, customers can also complete their meals with a six pack chosen from the shop's large selection of mix-and-match micro brews, which also include gluten-free beers from forward-thinking brewers such as Bard’s Tale Brewing Company.
The chefs at Pizza Oven hand toss fresh dough to create specialty pizzas available by the slice or whole pie. In addition to creative pies like the Bangkok Bombshell, slathered in thai peanut sauce, chicken, cilantro, and mozzarella, they also make classic bread sticks and garlic bread sticks.
