Rick's Pizza in Rensselaer, Indiana

Pepperoni Pizza from Rick’s Pizza in Rensselaer, Indiana

Rick’s Pizza in Rensselaer, Indiana is the local go-to for pizza.

This Jasper County pizza parlor seems to be the place to go on a Friday night judging from all the cars in and out of Rick’s Pizza!

Situated on a corner, what locals call Five Points, in what looks to be an old gas station, Rick’s Pizza is nothing fancy. No sides or extras, just real good pizza.

Since you’re wondering (I’m pretending you are, anyway) I loved the Cheese Pizza. I’ve been on a cheese-pizza kick lately and this one had a great blend of cheese and seasoning. Yum!

My husband, Jeremy, and Kid #1 shared a half-sausage and mushroom and a half-pepperoni pizza. Kid #1 then decided mine was the best so I had to share. My husband really liked the sausage and mushroom side and hoarded it all to himself.

Here’s my word of advice for those of  you who pick-up or eat inside of Rick’s Pizza: don’t forget the quarters!

There are a few arcade games inside so you can distract the kid(s) and/or your husband while you wait for your order. It’s classic arcade gaming and probably includes an old favorite of yours from “back in the day.”

Just a note: this is a hand-tossed pizza. The sizes run small with a very thin crust than you might be expecting, so you might need to get a size larger than what you might usually order.
