About this Business
From Our Editors
Started by a family with more than 50 years of dough-flinging expertise, the first Old River Pizza Company came to fruition in 2000, with two sister locations opening soon after. All three restaurants sport an outdoorsy, Northern Minnesotan motif and boast a menu of brick-oven-baked pizza. Pizza Picassos coat the signature dough—which was perfected over three generations of trial, error, and warlock magic—with a South Alma cheese blend and a seasoned, slow-cooked sauce made from vine-ripened tomatoes. More than 35 toppings, such as sauerkraut, taco meat, and locally sourced italian sausage, encourage customized crusts, and 23 preconceived specialty pies spotlight time-tested flavor combinations. An assortment of sandwiches also awaits the crispy kiss and awkward back-pat of a brick oven, and a variety of calzones, pastas, and salads round out the edible bill of fare.
