For the record, The Omaha Pizza Kings look for the following criteria before we will review an establishment:
- We prefer locally owned establishments.
- Most are within a 1 hour drive from Omaha.
- Pizza must be a main feature of their menu, but the eatery doesn’t specifically have to be a pizzeria.
- The Kings will generally scoff at national chains. We deem their ilk formulaic and void of character worthy of the pizza kingdom.
