Every pizza lover has had to play the game. Whether out with friends or a family meal, there is always that moment where two, three or even seven people must navigate the social landmines of deciding what will go on the pizza. Inevitably, someone will sacrifice in the name of saving a few dollars and avoiding arguments. Let’s face it; sharing is good, except when pizza is involved. Top That! Pizza offers a solution that renders this awkward game a long-lost tradition. The solution is simple – everyone gets their own pizza and unlimited toppings.
It really is that simple. At Top That! Pizza at Tulsa Hills South, pizza gets personal. Everyone gets exactly what they are hungry for, and at an affordable price. “We have over 40 choices of veggie and meat selections, ten different cheeses, three different crusts and eight different sauces,” explains Samantha Bell, assistant manager. “For no extra charge, customers can add as many toppings as they want.” Owner Sean Swank, who is a 19-year Air Force veteran, adds, “A lot of people get intimidated at first when they see all the choices, so we do have some signature combinations on the menu. After a couple visits, though, they start experimenting and modifying with their toppings.”
If you are not up for pizza at the moment, Top That! Pizza offers fresh-made salads and bakes (meatball and chicken chunk based dishes) as well. With several options for meal combinations (includes a drink and salad) and family deals, as well as plenty of drink and dessert selections, you are guaranteed to find something for any appetite and every budget.
Top That! Pizza also partners with teams, schools and other organizations for fundraisers. “On fundraiser days, customers put receipts in our fundraiser box. At the end, we tally them up and 20 percent goes to the organization,” explains Mr. Swank. “It really is an easy, fun and helpful fundraiser. We love having schools and teams in here – we have a lot of fun.”
Fun is certainly one of the words that comes to mind as you enter Top That! Pizza. Everyone is smiling – customers and staff alike. There are a handful of games for kids to play in between slices. Large screens on the wall behind the counter make topping decisions a breeze. As customers make their way to the counter, they can view all the fresh ingredients for toppings and ask questions as their pizza is made right in front of them. The ordering process is not only no-mess and no-stress, but it is fast, too. Pizzas are usually finished baking within minutes. “By the time you get your drink filled, you turn around and your pizza is ready,” says Sean.
As a husband and father, Sean knows the value of an easy, affordable, positive dining experience. The establishment he and his staff have put together is ideal for families. There is plenty of seating, with wide aisles and plenty of floor space (because kids have a tendency to avoid sitting in one spot). Also, there is no alcohol served at Top That! Pizza. Everything about the restaurant is geared for a pleasant pizza experience. So, whether your party is a house divided on the veggie versus meat choice or co-workers on a quick lunch between meetings, you can be sure everyone will get exactly what they want at Top That! Pizza. You can view their menu and more at www.topthatpizza.com or stop in at their location in the Tulsa Hills Shopping Center at 71st and Highway 75. Business hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
