America's 8 Favorite Pizza Toppings

 Li'l Rizzo's Italian Restaurant not only serves amazing pasta but also the best pizza at the Lake of the Ozarks. We believe that the heart of any pizza is an incredible dough but what makes each pizza unique is the types of toppings chosen to put on top. 

Top 8 Pizza Toppings

We did a bit of research around the internet and the following 8 pizza toppings kept popping up on multiple lists.   

  1. Pepperoni
  2. Mushrooms
  3. Sausage
  4. Bacon
  5. Extra Cheese
  6. Onion
  7. Green Peppers
  8. Black Olives

The Top 8 on Li'l Rizzo's Specialty Pizzas

We're happy to hear that so many people agree on those top 8 toppings because we serve every single one of them at our Lake of the Ozarks Italian Restaurant! (Plus a lot more, but we'll talk more about those below.) 

While you are always free to create your own pizza with any and all toppings you like, we also feature a wonderful selection of specialty pizzas. Here are of few of those that happen to feature the top 8 toppings listed above. 

This particular pizza has 6 of the top 8 toppings all together on one delicious pizza, with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, bacon, and black olives. 

Macho Meat
This meat lover's pizza takes 3 of the top toppings and adds 2 more very popular choices, with pepperoni, sausage, and bacon plus Canadian bacon and hamburger.  

Our veggie pizza is topped with 3 of the top 8 toppings plus an extra one that also rated highly among pizza lovers. It is topped with mushrooms, onions, green bell peppers, and tomatoes.

Ordering Pizza at Li'l Rizzo's

When you dine on pizza at Li'l Rizzo's, the toppings are just one of the choices you'll need to make to create the "pie of your dreams!" First, of course, you'll need to decide which size to order. In our opinion, especially when it comes to pizza, bigger is always better. Why? Because this is a food that always begs you to eat  "just one more piece" plus it's always great the next day as leftovers too! 

Next, if you're ordering from our Osage Beach location, you'll need to decide on a type of crust. Both locations offer our made-from-scratch thin crust but the Osage Beach location also offers a hand-tossed crust. Both spots are also able to offer a gluten-free crust too. 

The next decision to make is the sauce. Our sauces include:

  • Traditional Red
  • Alfredo
  • Olive Oil
  • Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • Tangy BBQ 
After that, we've got a few different kinds of cheese that can be added, including:     

  • Mozzarella Shredded
  • Mozzarella Fresh
  • Provel
  • Ricotta
  • Parmesan
And then, after all of those decisions, it's finally time to choose the toppings! Written out it may sound like a lot of work but in reality, it's not that hard. Just think about what sounds the most delicious on that particular day and go for it! Or, if you want to simplify things even further, just choose one of our expertly crafted specialty pizzas.   

The next time you've got a crowd of hungry people to feed or you just happen to have a craving for amazing pizza, head on over to Li'l Rizzo's. That's where you can find the best pizza & pasta at the Lake of the Ozarks, 7 days a week, all year long! 

You can also easily get pizza to go by either giving the restaurant closest to you a call, downloading our free Lil Rizzos mobile app, or ordering Li'l Rizzo's to go online through our website. Whatever makes it easiest for you to get those pizza cravings satisfied, we're here to make that happen!
