Next Pizza to Try: Godfather’s Pizza

Godfather’s Pizza, famous for commercials that feature a knock-off of the Marlon Brando character Don Vito Corleone in the movie, “The Godfather,” has 640 restaurants scattered in 39 states as of current date, according to the company’s website. Established in Nebraska by Willy Thiesen in 1973 shortly after the movie was released, the pizza chain operates in several Minit Marts in Kentucky as well as in some Hess Express outlets. Godfather’s Pizza’s pizza products have four crust variants: Golden, Original, Thin, and Mozza-Loaded.

The Classic Combo, a Godfather’s Pizza original creation, is the standard by which all of Godfather’s Pizzas is made: fresh pizza crust piled deliciously high with succulent meats, fresh vegetables, and 100% pure mozzarella. Now that you know the back story, let’s dig in at the menu.

Super Specialty Pies

These aren’t called “super” for nothing. Ingredients on each of these pizzas are in lip-smacking abundance:

Super Combo: ham, sausage, green peppers, beef, tomatoes, cheddar, pepperoni, mushrooms, mozzarella, and extra cheese.

Specialty Pies

These are truly “special” pies in the tradition of everything Italian — olives, mozzarella, onions, and beef – with some twists like the inclusion of taco sauce and jalapeño peppers:

Classic Combo: the “pie” that started it all, this is the original recipe with pepperoni, mushrooms, sausage, onions, black olives, beef, and mozzarella.

Hot Stuff: mozzarella, Italian sausage, onions, pepperoni, beef, and, obviously, something hot like jalapeño peppers.

Taco Pie: of course the inclusion of taco sauce to the onions, cheddar, beef, tomatoes, mozzarella, and lettuce make this as Mexican as taco.

Veggie Pie: the Godfather’s Pizza version is mozzarella, green peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, and black olives.
