Knolla's Pizza Maize
After working for a pizzeria chain, brothers Pat and Tim Knolla wanted an authentic pizza-making experience. So they packed it in and moved to New York, where they apprenticed under Sicilian pizza makers who taught them that true pizza is made by hand. In 1981, they opened the first Knolla's Pizza in the back of a video store; today, along with a third brother, they own and operate four locations that have grown so popular, they were awarded a 2014 Reader's Choice award by readers of The Wichita Eagle.
It's not easy to meet the chain's high standards. Chefs make the dough fresh every day and top it with just-cut veggies and whole-milk mozzarella, instead of the kind that's made from sliced up milk. Diners can choose from two different kinds of crust: the foldable New York style or the dense Chicago deep dish. In 2013, the restaurant even polled customers to create the Wichita-style pizza, which is loaded with bacon, beef, chunks of tomato, fresh herbs, and sunflower seeds.
