15619 West Center Road, Omaha, Nebraska
It’s been a while, but the Omaha Pizza Review Crew is back. Our pizzeria of choice this time is relatively new to the West Omaha area, Piezon’s Pizzeria located on the South West corner of 156th and West Center Road.
Piezon’s Pizzeria, located at 15619 West Center Road, occupies a single bay in a very small strip mall that thousands of motorists pass by everyday. Most probably don’t have a clue that Piezon’s is even there, and that’s a shame. Perhaps now that there is a giant gorilla statue standing at the entrance to the strip mall (a new King Kong restaurant is on the way), more people may take notice. Being located in such a small bay means no tables. It’s pretty much take-out only. I suppose you could eat a slice at the small counter located in the front of the joint on your lunch break, but most will order and go. Behind the counter you’ll find a friendly, shiney headed dough slinger who clearly runs the joint along with the gold standard for cooking pizzas in my opinion, a Blodgett deck oven. Continue reading
Yotes BBQ Pizzaria
7007 S 181st St, Omaha, Nebraska
It looks like Harrison’s Pub and Yotes Pizzaria are no longer. A new business is taking over that location.
The Omaha Pizza Review Crew is at it again. This time our pizza of choice is a new comer to the West Omaha area: Yotes BBQ Pizzaria located inside Harrison’s Pub (the former Rum Runner) on the Southwest corner of 180th and Harrison. Yotes, formerly of Springfield, Nebraska, operates a small dine-in and carry-out business inside the pub. They have just two tables on the restaurant side, but you can also order from, and eat in, the much larger pub side, which is exactly what we did this past Friday night. Continue reading
1004 S 74th Plaza, Omaha, Nebraska
A few Friday nights ago, we had the pleasure of testing out yet another fine local pizza establishment. In our crosshairs this time was Lighthouse Pizza located in a small strip mall just north of Pacific street at 74th. Their large, clean restaurant has plenty of seating, a number of flat screen televisions, a help yourself soda fountain, some of the coldest beer in Omaha and, wait for it, a drive-thru for those who just can’t muster up the strength to park and walk across the parking lot. Oh and one more important bit that clearly caters to the college crowd at nearby UNO, they’re open until 3am on Friday and Saturday nights. Continue reading
Roman Coin Pizza
3504 Samson Way, Bellevue, Nebraska
Roman Coin Pizza
This past weekend we found ourselves in the Papillon area in search of the new kid on the block, Circo’s Pizza. Unfortunately, Circo’s wasn’t quite ready for business yet as they’re still putting the finishing touches on their new place. So after the disappointment faded, I grabbed the iPhone and searched for some pizza in the general area. After automatically discarding Pizza Hut and Little Ceasars, I spied an old favorite: Roman Coin Pizza located in the Varisty Sports Cafe in nearby Bellevue. Continue reading

The Pizza Shoppe and Pub
Well here we go again, yet another pizza review of yet another great Omaha pizza place. Our latest visit was to The Pizza Shoppe and Pub in the hopping Benson neighborhood of Omaha. You’ll find no shortage of young kids, bars, shops, restaurants and stop lights in the 6 blocks or so along Maple Street and we are pleased to say, one damn good pizza place. Continue reading
