Pappo's Pizza dishes

Pappo's Pizzeria serves Italian dishes alongside their signature pizza. 

Late last year, the south side of Columbia, Missouri, welcomed a new pizza joint – but pizza isn’t the only specialty at PaPPo’s Pizzeria & Pub. The eatery also serves Italian classics such as insalata caprese, hand-rolled meatballs, eggplant Parmesan and calzones, alongside St. Louis-style toasted ravioli and a lineup of frothy local beers.

PaPPo’s offers a long list of crusts, sauces, meats, cheeses, veggies and herbs to build your own pie, but if you find yourself suffering from decision fatigue, there’s no shame in ordering a refined favorite such as the apple-bourbon pulled pork pizza topped with housemade barbecue sauce.
