Next time your craving calls for pizza during quarantine, head to Vito's Kitchen in Springfield, Missouri. When you open the classic cardboard takeout box cradling your custom order, you'll get a view of toppings with contrasting colors and a welcoming whiff of the vine-ripened tomato sauce. Each pie comes topped with whole-milk mozzarella that offers that soft yet slightly stretchy texture every pizza-lover craves.
Chef-owner Vito Palmietto takes toppings seriously, which is why each offering must past a strict quality assessment test. With his carefully curated choices, it's hard to invent a bad combo. He offers 10 toppings:
- Fennel sausage
- Genoa salami
- Banana pepper
- Black olive
- Hot pepper
Each addition costs $2.50 each, or you can opt to only add it on one side of the pie, which brings the cost down to $1.50 each.
You can place a to-go order and request curbside pickup by phone, or order through a delivery site like CarGo or GrubHub.
