The chefs at Pizza World, a franchise stretching from Missouri to Pennsylvania, top freshly made dough disks with artful combinations of tame and exotic toppings. Specialty pizzas bear monikers such as Ole Mexicana or California Spin-Dip and come decorated with refried beans, sombreros made of jalape?os, alfredo sauce, or artichoke hearts. Pie sizes range from 8 inches in diameter to the grandiose 24-inch Big World pizza, which covers 452 square inches of mouthspace. Cooks also pull calzones and baked subs out of the hot ovens and toss crisp salads with ingredients that include italian meats, feta cheese, and hard-boiled egg. Located in Maplewood's Deer Creek Center, this casual strip mall eatery boasts indoor tables as well as some outdoor seating for alfresco noshing.
