Via's Pizzeria is quickly becoming one of Topeka's favorite pizza places. They opened in 2008 with a few recipes and a commitment for making the best pizza they could.

They cook their pizza on stone, and they offer a thick Chicago style pie. If you don't like the thick Chicago crust, you can get a regular crust. Via's also offers their crusts made with white or wheat flour. Via's have entered their pizza's in the 2010 International Pizza Competition, and they finished 21'st in their category. Not bad for a recently opened (2008) startup.

Each month they feature a pizza that is a specialty for the month.

A few months back it was the Mediterranean Pizza-which is comprised of Artichoke Hearts, Feta Cheese, Banana Peppers, Sun Dried Tomatoes, Roma Tomatoes, and Ham. Another specialty pizza, for those who love spicy is the "Inferno" pizza. Which consists of roasted red tomatoes, pineapples, jalapenos, and habaneros and that's just the sauce. Then they top it off with the three cheese blend, Italian sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onion and banana peppers.

One thing about Via's, they don't scrimp on ingredients in their pizza. If you order the deep dish pizza, be prepared for bliss, and keep in mind it takes a while to cook a masterpiece like this. Expect it to take about 40 minutes from the time the order is taken, to the time the waitress sets the pie on your table, They do have salads you can order in the meantime, and the other night when we were there, we had a salad, and it was a better than average tossed salad. The lettuce was fresh, and the other veggies in the salad were good quality. Some places around here, when you ask for salad give you a bowl of shredded lettuce. Not at Via's.

One other plus at Via's. They serve 32 different brands of beer, and 7 of those on tap are locally brewed.

If you are visiting the world famous Topeka Zoo, or if you are in Gage Park, you are just a block or so from Via’s. If you get hungry while touring the zoo, you can run over for lunch, and then continue your zoo visit.

Via’s is owned by a local couple, Jeff and Jessica Schell, and one of them is usually on hand at the restaurant.
