The Greathouse of Pizza is owned by Trent Groothius and he is the genius behind the various concoctions served at the restaurant.
“We specialize in thin crust pizza. I think most people call it a Midwestern pub style kind of crackery crust, it’s pretty good,” says Trent.
The restaurant offers both a jalapeno popper pizza and a bacon cheeseburger pizza – each very popular with their customers.
On Wednesday nights, they do a special Chicago style pie, the true deep dish pizza.
“Four or five years ago I went to my brother, he lives in Chicago, and had Chicago style pizza for the first time and I was like, I can make this just as good if not better and I played around with it and I think it’s a pretty good product.”
Customers agree, the Wednesday night Chicago style pizzas are big sellers. Trent believes the reason for his restaurant’s success is simple:
“Everything’s fresh so I think that’s why it’s so good, we make the sausage in house and grind the cheese and make the pizza sauce and everything … it’s no secret …”
Those who love the deep dish Wednesdays can even buy those pizzas as a ‘take and bake’ so they can freeze them and cook them at home later.
