There are plenty of places to grab pizza in Branson, MO – but why go where the tourists go? Just south of the main strip in Branson, is a town called Hollister, the home of Hook & Ladder Pizza Company. The rustic building is small but cozy – just order your pizza at the counter then grab a seat in the dining room.
I personally always order a salad with my pizzas, as I think a nice salad can tell about a place. The salad at Hook & Ladder was fresh with ripe tomatoes, onions and croutons.
The pizza was the star of the show however. Mr. Beet and I split a Veggie Pie – green peppers, sauteed onions, mushrooms and black olives. The crust was crisp and golden – not too thin, not too thick. And the veggies were abundant.
Our friends ordered a thin crust sausage and cheese pizza and they enjoyed it.
We loved exploring a local spot in Branson and look forward to a visit there again! There is also a location in Ozark, just north of Branson. 4 1/2 out of 5 sprouts.
