Before, during, or after a Cyclones game there are a lot of places to choose for some pizza.  But one place has been doing it since May of 1979.  That's 44 years of cheesy goodness.

The Great Plains Sauce and Dough Co. makes their fresh dough daily in thin as a "Sam's, Thin Denver or Idaho" or thick with styles of "Denver, New Orleans or Oat".
