I haven't lived in Indiana for over 8 years. I was born in Rushville, and grew up in Connersville and was fortunate to have Pizza Kings in both areas. I don't miss much about the state, but I ***REALLY*** miss Pizza King. Every person I know that grew up around my area and moved away says the same thing. They all miss Pizza King pizza most of all. I'm going to be making a trip back to Indiana this Saturday with a group of friends and I can't wait to eat there again! And I'm definitely going to try to take some one the plane with me back to Philadelphia! I don't know what it is... I think it's GREAT pizza, but it's also comfort food to me. Does anyone know of any around the Philadelphia area? Pittsburgh is a 5-hour drive...

$80 to ship a pizza?? There has to be a miscommunication there. I'd love to have some shipped out to me, but $80?!?! I'd be willing to pay $40....

Best wishes to all!
Dave

Mauci,
Welcome to the Roadfood website.

There are a bunch of folks who either live in SoCal or have lived there previously. Where in the San Diego area are you?

I am going to delete the duplicate post you have on the forum, as we discourage multiple posting.

I live in Central Florida but grew up in Lafayette, Ind. Arni's Pizza King was outstanding. Their pizza and junior salads were heaven. I moved to Florida in 1978 (after "THE BLIZZARD") and have missed Pizza King ever since. Does anyone know if the Chubbys Thin Crust Pizza in Apopka, Florida is still in business? I called their phone number and a recording says the number is not in service, usually not a good sign. I did a google search for Pizza King a few days ago and found this site and joined it. That guy that owns, or owned, Chubbys was a guy I went to school with in Lafayette. I did not even know he lived in Florida. Small world, I guess.

In any event, can someone who has ordered pizza from Pizza King, and had it delivered via FedEx, tell me how the pizza survived the trip?
I assume it is packaged in dry ice? Can someone give me the phone number to order Pizza King sent via FedEx? And is the cost really $80? Thanks folks.

Btw, if any of you have occasion to be in Indiana, check out Arni's Pizza (used to be Arni's Pizza King). They have a number of locations in Indiana. And the pizza is great. I would also suggest getting an Arni's Junior salad. I am not keen on salads, being a carnivore, but their Junior salads are outstanding. Oh geez, now I have a bad craving.

Speaking of salads, are any of you old enough to rememeber a place in Indianapolis, near the fairgrounds, called the Tee-Pee? They had a great salad dressing. The burgers were great too. Sadly they closed a long time ago.

They offered lunch during lunch hour with a slice, a moderate size bowl of spaghetti, a half dozen garlic rolls swimming in juice, salad and a soft drink for $4.35.

They ceased operation, not because of low prices, but because the neighborhood declined. I wish I could find them elsewhere. Does anyone know where they are in the Miami area?

Well suz, there used to one here in detroit on Jefferson ave. However, the other day I went over to that area, I saw I for lease sign up. I guess they werent getting any business. By the way, try Cotttage Inn's Pizza. I think you will like it.

I do love the Sir Pizza. Luckily there's one about a mile down the road. About a block away from the White Castle

I think there are a few Sir Pizzas here in Lexington.

I too am from the Lexington Area. The Sir Pizza you describe is my all time favorite pizza joint ever. I just wish they'd get all those red phones at the tables working again. I love their Hawiian pizza with the ham, pineapple and barbecue sauce. Tasty. Thier marinara based pies are great, and unique too.

I moved to Tennessee from the Muncie, Indiana area and grew up eating PIZZA KING! Up until a year ago, I didn't know TN even had SIR PIZZA. I drive an hour and a half every few weeks for my "pizza fix", won't order any other kind. I just read that it can be delivered half-baked by FedEx, can't wait to give this a try. Thanks for being here, once a year is not enough SIR PIZZA for me on my visits home. I learned to make the "Beef Boats" but cannot duplicate the pizza taste I crave.

It's been almost a year since I replied to this thread but I am much wiser today.
If you really want to know about ordering a pizza just find the web site and give them a call. I was in Muncie in early October and stopped at a Pizza King on S. Macedonia Ave. It was great. They told me that they had them in the freezer waiting to be shipped.
The Sir Pizza chain, out of Murfreesboro, makes the same pie. I ate both pies within a week. Matter of fact we had Sir Pizza tonight. I got a 2 month supply right after we got back from Muncie.
Terry's Pizza, here in Huntsville, closed after 48 years. The owner died in mid December of 2005 and his kids let it run into the ground. They were too greedy and stupid to carry on. The joint was 88th in the US of independant pie makers with 1.8 million in sales. No pizza worth eating here anymore. Gotta' run them into town like moonshine.

Terry,

If I may ask, what do they charge for shipping the pizzas? Also what is the contact info. Much appreciated. I am so craving one of their pizzas. It has been way too long!!

WOW!! I used to work just two blocks from that shop on 17-92. I only ate there once, did not really care for their pizza, but in hindsight, I should have given it another chance. I think their demise was due to the "big boy" pizza chains coming to town.

I recall that pizza hut offered that style of pizza as a limited edition styles of pizzas they do so often.

That style of pizza - round but cut into squares is some regional style, but I am not sure of what it is called.

"John in Seattle"...
If I remember correctly from my pizza-working days, we called it party-cut. The pizza chain I worked in was no where as good as Pizza King, to me, nothing matches that great flavor. Where I worked normally cut in pie-cut, but our big 24-inch pizza was different. It was cut in party-cut.

Oh, I hope you are still posting here. My husband absolutely ADORED Sir Pizza. We were working together in Atlanta, Georgia and that was our #1 favorite pizza ever! I would dearly love to know if they exist anywhere. Loved those little squares of pie and the sauce was terrific! We also loved their salads....great 1000 Island dressing. Oh, those were the good old days (60's - 70's). Carol Faver

easy cluck, let us know how the pizza turns out.

I am going to be visiting one of the locations in Nashville, in the Spring. I can't wait!

I, too, grew up with Atlanta lone SIR PIZZA that I knew of, across from the Moreland Shopping Center, in the S.E. part of the city.

Many good childhood memories there. Even as a youngster, I realized this was really unique pizza, like no other. The original sign is still on the side of the building, which last time I looked, was a pawn shop.

Just curious, if you ever ate at the L&M restaurant, that was located in the corner of said Moreland Shopping Center? My father was a friend of the owner, and they really had excellent country cookin' from scratch. Many a rewarding supper there too! Sad to see the Sir Pizza and L&M both gone, and the once bustling shopping center looking like the third world. NOTHING remains from my youth.

My Dad was born and raised here in Orlando, FL and he always talks about Tom's Pizza. I believe it was on Bumby. Does anyone remember that? If so, any pizza places that compare here in Orlando?

There are several Sir Pizzas here in Murfreesboro, in fact there is one just a block down the street from me. I have to hit that lunch buffet every once in a while.

It's pretty good, probably the best chain pizza I'd say, and I do really prefer the thin crust pizzas to the thick goopy ones. I would love to see some better places open up though, if they could stay open.

I've lived in the South my whole life and love Southern food. But I think the attitude of too many people was summed by my friends mother when she was talking about 'real cheese'. She was referring to Velveeta vs. the generic grocery store 'cheese product'. Sigh.

Of course I've had to smack some northeners that thought BBQ came out of an oven or a bottle too.
