Pizza Ranch

Pizza Ranch is a Midwest chain with more than 200 locations across 15 states.

I stoppped at the Peoria location and picked up my to-go order. I went with the "Tuscan Roma" - Sliced Roma Tomatoes, Spinach, Alfredo Sauce and I added mushrooms and a balsamic glaze. And, because I could, I added a side of stuffing.

"In the heart of every cowboy is a dream. Adrie Groeneweg had one that started in Hull, Iowa, in 1981 when he was just 19 years old. It was simple. Why does everyone have to drive out of town to get a pizza? With just six specialty and single topping pizza recipes developed around the kitchen table, Pizza Ranch was born. The residents of Hull flocked to the young restaurant for made-from-scratch sauce and dough and other fresh ingredients. As word spread, Pizza Ranch grew," reads the website.

The customizations I added to the pizza made it. The sweetness from the balsamic balanced the rich, cheesy alfredo base. The stuffing was disappointing - too mushy and flavorless.
