Picasso's Pizza - Wichita, KS

While away from home, my goal is to eat only at places I can't find when back home.  Places unique to the area I'm visiting.


My aunt suggested we hit up a place called Picasso's Pizza in the Old Town section of Wichita. A place known for their HUGE pizzas and massive individual slices. A slice of pizza that lops over the sides of a food tray, because this "Za" is too big for a plate.


The menu has a wide selection of toppings to add in addition to their signature slices. Not only pizza was on the board though, they also have a wide variety of calzones, salads and more. Beyond the food, Picasso's has a massive beer selection to perfectly pair with any slice you may like.


I indulged in a meat heavy slice called the Heart Attack. So large are the slices, that the guy behind the counter asks you if you'd like it cut up into more manageable pieces. With a slice of pizza as long as your forearm, wrist and hand, it's sort of a must.

Now here comes the unique part, my cousin's daughter asked me if I was going to put honey on my slice. From the expression of "dafaq" on my face, she began to attempt to convince me that not only was she serious but that it was actually good. When the pizza arrived, so did the moment of truth and so did the honey.


The pizza was delicious; the taste and quality is not lost in the novelty of the giant slices. Even though the slice is massive, it is still manageable and not a waste because they don't go overly thick on the dough or heavy on the cheese, two things that tend to fill you up quickly. Now the honey... What can I tell you? I recently saw a group of people talking about combining peanut butter and chilli, something I can't imagine being good. Then again, I wouldn't think honey could go on pizza but even there, I was wrong. The sweetness of the honey is a perfect combination with the savory of the pizza, like strawberry jam on a sausage patty. I don't think it will be a regular addition to pizza for me but definitely deserves a revisit. 

So if ever you are up Kansas way, make sure to stop off at Picasso's for a huge slice of pizza and MAYBE a drizzle of honey.
