Papa Rick's Pizza
Beef, sausage, pepperoni, canadian bacon, and bacon bits. Or, spinach, mushroom, black olives, cilantro, and artichokes. Although neither of these ingredient lists should be referenced when filling up a piñata, both embody the eclecticism of Papa Rick’s creations: one being a meat lover’s pie, the other a 10-topping veggie pie. Nearly 20 equally distinct pizzas populate the Papa Rick’s menu, including a barbecue hamburger pizza and a tandoori chicken pizza with Indian spices. Even with such a wide variety of pies, Papa Rick’s doesn’t stop at pizza. The restaurant also fills bellies with other pizzeria staples such as wings, calzones, and sub sandwiches.
