Beggar's Pizza

Many years ago when I worked in the human resources office of a school district, we'd often order pizza for lunch from the original location in Blue Island. There are now several more locations, including one close to my home in Lansing.

As far as I'm concerned, it's the best location because it has a very cool pipe organ and it is played live two nights a week. The building was once a movie theatre, so it has an interesting layout with different tiers of seating and a big stage in the center with the massive organ as a centerpiece. If you've never been there to see it played, do yourself a favor and plan a visit when the organist is there. It's so fun listening to everything from Disney tunes to rock medleys played while you eat.

The food is great - it's still my favorite pizza. They really load on the cheese and their sausage is the best! I've also had lots of other menu items over the years, from salads to pasta to appetizers to chicken entrees. I've ordered the food for catered parties at home and I've held events in their party room.

They've also been named a Top 100 Pizza company in the U.S.A. - quite a distinction!
