As you may recall, my aversion to sauerkraut made me skeptical that I would enjoy the Festus pizza at Charlie’s Pizza.
However, I had several friends who insisted it really is, as the Food Network has called it, among the 50 best pizzas in America. And when it comes to pizza, I’m willing to give anything a try.
A couple friends arranged to meet me at Yankton’s most beloved pizza joint Tuesday night with the singular goal of ordering a Festus pizza so I could give it a try.
Soon after came a steaming pizza topped with sauerkraut, spicy meatballs, jalapenos and more. And it was delicious.
I love spicy food, so it had me there. The sauerkraut turned out to be no obstacle to my taste buds, either.
Now, I can join the chorus: The Festus (and you have to make sure not to drop the first “s” in Festus when you type it out or people are going to look at you very funny) is a delicious concoction. I’m genuinely impressed.
If I had been thinking, I would have taken a photo of our meal, but thinking is not always my forte. Apologies.
Now get to Charlie’s and try the Festus pizza!
