Enjoy the Best Pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks During National Pizza Month!
Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant not only serves incredible pasta dishes every day but we also offer the best pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks. The entire month of October is designated as National Pizza Month, giving you an added excuse to eat even more of this incredible food than usual!
The Heart of Any Pizza is...
...THE DOUGH! Fresh, flavorful toppings are very important but if you don't have a good base to put them on, that ruins the entire slice. At both locations of our Lake of the Ozarks Italian restaurants, we make our pizza dough from scratch using only the very best ingredients to create the perfect crust.
We use unbromated, unbleached flour due to health concerns surrounding Potassium bromate. Fine sea salt is also used for its intense, clean flavor and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) because it creates a smoother texture and more tender dough.
Our Lake Ozark restaurant proudly serves this pizza St. Louis style, thin-crust. The Osage Beach location offers that same incredible thin crust but here you can also choose to have it hand-tossed instead. They also offer a gluten-free 14" cauliflower crust. Once the crust is prepared, it's time to add your favorite toppings.

Li'l Rizzo's Specialty Pizzas
As we mentioned earlier, if you'd like to leave the toppings up to us, we've got an extensive list of our own specialty pizzas that you're going to love. These are made with red sauce and St. Louis pizza cheese unless specified otherwise below.
For the Kids
One more specialty pizza that can be found on the kid's menu (because they're usually the only ones that realize how great this will taste) is our Gummy Bear Pizza! Sure, it may sound strange at first, but after just one gooey bite, you just may like it. (Kids LOVE it!) This cheese pizza comes with a side of gummy bears to be added at the diner's discretion.
We've Got Calzones Too!
A fantastic variation on a classic pizza is the calzone. We take our made-from-scratch pizza dough and wrap it around up to 3 pizza toppings of your choice plus a Romano, Ricotta, and Mozzarella cheese filling. Once it's done in the oven, we serve it up to you over Li'l Rizzo's homemade marinara sauce. If you've never tried a calzone yet, we highly recommend it! (FYI, we've got dessert calzones too!)
Dine-In or Order To-Go
