COLUMBUS-STYLE PIZZA TRAIL


It’s hip to be square with our Columbus-Style Pizza Trail! That’s right, Columbus has a style – it’s thin crust, edge-to-edge toppings and square-cut. Explore the flavors of recipes that have been handed down through generations of Columbus families, and easily check-in at participating stops using the trail’s free digital pass. (Just make sure to order dine-in or carry-out as delivery orders are ineligible for trail participation). After just four stops, you’ll earn a super-soft Columbus-Style Pizza Trail T-shirt. If you can try a (pizza) pie from every stop within a year, you’ll earn a stainless-steel pizza cutter and hot pad. Share your journey with us by using #CbusPizza.
