We always make time to get pizza here when in Ames visiting. Unique pizza crust with an excellent flavor and fresh ingredients. Save the thick part of crust and put on honey for a sweet treat!

We were in town for a family issue and took our two 20 something children in the evening. It was beyond expectation and we all had a great time. Food and drink were excellent. Great service and reasonable prices. Thanks!

Great pizza! Get the Denver crust! It's darn good pizza. You go in and order pizza at the counter and then find a table. The crust is filling so you don't need a very big pizza!

Lunch by the slice is awesome. A piece of pizza and a side salad is a great 'go to' lunch for me. No one can argue their price for a piece of pizza at lunch. Crust with honey as dessert finishes it off.

If you like cheese and more cheese, this is the place to go. Love the honey for dipping the crust. Its like the desert. A must if you're in Ames.

Great Plains is simply the best pizza in Ames. The only issue is the lack of seating larger groups especially when they're busy

This is another of our favorite restaurants since College. The pizza is awesome and the thick crust with honey is to die for. Beware you will see lots of Iowa State fans :)

I have been eating here for over 30 years and it is still a special meal every time. It is a cheese lover's paradise with Denver style crust to eat with honey applied to it. We always try to go at a "between meal time" (eg 2:00) to try to avoid the large crowds. We called ahead to order our... More

Been eating at this place since I was a teen! Never had a bad "pie"! Several different choices of crusts and lots of options for your favorite toppings! And for dessert, bring on the honey to finish off your crust! Tastes like the best bread ever🍕!!

Great Plains Sauce & Dough is my favorite pizza. It's a local favorite. Some people I've been with to dinner here don't like it because of the thick crust but they offer a tasty thin crust too. It's a bit self service which is fine. Love the honey on the crust. It's like having dessert. If I could pick a... More
