Whether you enjoy your pie hand tossed or with a thin crust, we can all agree that pizza is the best for any meal and any occasion. Have you ever wondered where pizza came from? Your favorite Italian restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks did some research and we have the answers! Here's a little history of one of our favorite menu items.

History of Pizza

Like many other dishes, the origin of pizza is uncertain. While many people think of pizza as an Italian creation, pizza can be dated back to the Ancient Greeks. They would cook flatbread in mud ovens and top it with oils, herbs, spices and dates. Tomatoes haven't been discovered at that time, and they wouldn't have used them as we do today.

5 Tips for Getting Ready for 'Back to School'!

'Back to School' is just around the corner! In fact, School of the Osage starts back up on August 20th and Camdenton starts back up on August 19th. With just a couple more weeks of summer to go, we want to help you get prepared and make sure you start school off on the right foot. Here are a few things that can help you with the 2019/2020 school year!

1. Get School Supplies

If you didn't get out and do your back to school shopping this weekend during Tax Free weekend, you've still got time before the first bell rings.

Most schools will let you know what each grade needs and some times teachers will have specific items they want their students to have. Look at your local store for a grade appropriate list of school supplies provided by your student's school.

2. Get Your New School Clothes
