In 1973, a year after The Godfather was released, mobsters were in vogue. Godfather's Pizza took advantage of the timing, combining the gangster mythos with delicious, thick-crust pies.
The eatery's first location in Omaha, Nebraska, served the classic combo pizza: pepperoni, sausage, beef, onions, black olives, mushrooms, and mozzarella cheese. Today, at more than 600 locations, Godfather's Pizza serves specialties such as the updated classic combo and the pineapple- and bacon-covered Super Hawaiian pizza. Many locations are dine-in pizza joints, just like the original, but others are smaller kitchens found inside airports, universities, and safety deposit boxes.
