The service was fantastic, although there is fairly limited contact other than ordering and receiving the pizza. Pizza is always made speedily, even when it gets busy up there. The atmosphere is that of a typical campus pizzeria: plenty of places to sit and decent music.

The pizza is pretty average. I am not a fan of their crust as it runs thin compared to other crusts, and the sauce mostly just tastes like tomato paste with no special seasonings. I would suggest layering on the pizza toppings, since their toppings are decent and will help add body to the pizza. They have a nice selection of appetizers: wings, cheese sticks, jalapeño poppers, etc. These are my favorite, but expensive for the amount you get. It accommodates large groups well, but would not be suited for a romantic date. I would recommend PP only with low expectations. It is definitely average, but they put up with a lot of guff later at night, so they get props for that.

The best pizza in Ames. The cheesebread is fantastic. We head there every time we come back for an ISU game. We even stop at the Iowa City location for takeout on the ride back home. Too bad they don't have the se cheesebread.

Love how the 'pit' is actually upstairs. Not fancy, but pretty good pizza for Ames. Definitely something unique about the sauce and crust that I haven't tasted anywhere else. Love the cheesebread too. Probably bought 100 pizzas while at ISU. Quick delivery and the actual dining room was nice and quiet. Remember that these guys had coupons everywhere, so no need to pay full price. Wonder if they're still doing the football picks during the NFL season. Won a couple of free pies by playing. Go Clones!
