There are lotsa ways to enjoy pizza, but this new restaurant is off the charts. With five locations and counting, Lotsa Stone-Fired Pizza is taking everyone’s favorite food to a whole new level. Lotsa inspires you to use your creativity and create a master-pizza.


As a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I am lucky enough to have a Lotsa location just a little ways off campus. After my friends and I finished our midterms, we were ravenous for pizza and fortunately it was only a short walk away.

Worth the wait

When we walked in, there was this huge line out the door. We debating on whether or not it was worth the wait. Finally, after 20 minutes in line, it was our turn to order.

Lotsa has several menu options to choose from including Buffalo Chicken, Vegetarian, and Margherita pizzas. Feeling daring, I decided to create my own.

I chose traditional dough with alfredo sauce and fresh mozzarella. Then I added my favorite toppings like kalamata olives, banana peppers, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, and chicken. It was definitely not a pizza you’d see every day.


They tossed the pizza into a giant, rotating stone-fire oven. It took about 3 minutes to bake. When the pizza came out of the oven, it looked super rustic. I had my pizza finished off with some balsamic glaze for some sweetness to complement the brininess of the veggies.

The final product

Don’t mean to brag, but I gave my creation an A. I loved the flavor combination of the briny olives and artichokes, spicy peppers, and creamy alfredo sauce. The crust was baked perfectly, softer in the middle and crispy on the edges. And yes, I ate the entire thing in one sitting. It was definitely worth the wait.

Lotsa's business is growing, and you may have a location close to you real soon. So use your creativity to the max and create a pizza that screams you.
