The pizza farms outside of Minneapolis offer incredible pies - and a glimpse of life in the Midwest


Minneapolis is an up-and-coming food city with aspirations that outstrip its flyover reputation: James Beard Award-winning restaurants, secret cocktail bars, what seems like an endless number of craft breweries. But to focus on the city’s cosmopolitan developments is to miss out on the unique culinary landscape that helped develop local palates — namely, the pizza farm.

The pizza farms of Minnesota and Wisconsin are an exercise in good old Midwestern delayed gratification, the idea that a little bit of suffering makes the reward that much sweeter. That said, there are worse things in life than driving two hours out of the city, along the Mississippi River and through the early summertime expanse of shin-high corn, to feast on perfectly crackly, fresh pizzas in what feels like the middle of nowhere.
