They’re calling it the “Wichita-Style Pizza Movement.”
Local pizza restaurant Knolla’s is launching an online event that it hopes will result in the invention of a signature pizza style for Wichita. Why should New York and Chicago be the only cities to have their own?
Knolla’s is asking Wichitans to take an online survey, which allows them to build their dream pizza — choosing shape, sauce, toppings, etc.
Next month, the survey results will be tallied, and Knolla’s will create a signature Wichita pizza.
Then, from 3 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 27, the Knolla’s at 7732 E. Central will put on a launch event during which the first 100 people there will get a commemorative T-shirt. Everyone who attends will get a sample of the winning pizza combination.
After that, the Wichita-style pizza will likely be a special on the menu, and if it’s popular, it could be added permanently.
One of the shapes voters can choose in the survey is Kansas-shaped. I think I know how I’ll be voting.
