Lots of folks are making great pizza, but few pies taste as much like Minnesota as those at Big River Pizza.
With humble roots as a pizza wagon on wheels, Big River originally posted up at farmers markets, poking around the piles of produce for inspiration.
They found plenty of it. Roasted pumpkin, purple cauliflower, and copious basil are the kinds of things that find their way onto Big River pies. Crust has the impeccable crisp-chew of good Neapolitan-style pizzas anywhere, and cheeses are always best quality.
Just because it was in need of a permanent space didn't mean that Big River was going to give up its origin story.
It's now located in a shiny new space, adjacent to the St. Paul Farmers' Market, the perfect proximity for produce poking.
