The best pizza I have ever had. The crust was light and delicious. You can tell everything is fresh from the sauces... to the sausage and Canadian bacon. The owner is a gem so welcoming and kind. We enjoyed the Yo Yo Bread, Big Dill, Sausage King and Garbage Pizzas. Great experience. This little gem is our new favorite pizza place.read more

Came to try The Big Dill and it was good and unique. Our family is big on tacos and pickles so we ordered both in pizza... form and we may have liked the taco a bit more. Glad we tried this buzzed-about pizza! The crust was so good, I will also try a simpler topping pizza to let the crust shine next time we are in the area.read more

Mediocre at best. We had their sausage pizza a while ago and felt it tasted more like lasagna than pizza. We tried... their dill pickle pizza tonight and was extremely underwhelmed. With the amount of dill they supposedly put on the pizza, you should be able to taste it in every bite. Not the case. The "Canadian bacon" just tasted like ham. And the cheese bread (yo-yo bread) we ordered was obviously burnt and dry as hell. Most definitely will never order from them again.read more

We went here to try the famous Kinda Big Dill pizza and we were not disappointed - I can honestly say it was the best... pizza I’ve ever had. The perfect amount of pickles, the Canadian bacon that was smoked for 48hrs, the garlic dill seasoning - definition of delicious! In addition to the great pizza - the owner might be one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. We will definitely go back and try some of the other specialty pizzas.read more

Stopped in here again recently. I'm originally from the Quad Cities (the QC), so I know what I'm missing when it comes... to QC-style pizza. FINALLY, we have it here in the Twin Cities. First, the pizza. If you've not tried QC-style pizza, GET THE SAUSAGE. There are many favorites here, from the sour pig to the BLT. Yea, it probably doesn't sound that great for pizza. DO NOT JUDGE! Try it first. The pizzas are great. Gluten free crust is also available. QC Pizza has been in the media quite a bit lately, which speaks to how good it is. Second, the place. It's small with just a few tables. I think most people take it to go. Dennis, the owner, is great! He offers up samples if he's trying something new (the Big Dill pizza). We did try this one and it's another awesome pizza. This is a slight jaunt from our house, but we make this trip monthly. Earlier post: Yay! No more trips to the QC just for pizza! This place is Harris/Frank's in the Twin Cities. It was very good. Dennis, the owner, makes the sausage by hand, which is delicious. They also serve a taco pizza reminiscent of Happy Joes taco pizza. The minute we walked in and smelled the sausage, we knew we were "home." Plus, the Quad City photos on the walls were an added bonus. We really enjoyed the pizza, and Dennis was fantastic! Thanks, we'll be back!read more

Came here because of a City Pages article and because I'm a pickle lover. "Its kinda a big dill" is really kind of a... big deal. Not an average pizza, with marinara and all that, but it's even better. Everything tasted phenomenal and the ingredients were very fresh. On top of that was able to sit and talk to the owner and he genuinely wanted to know about us an serve us. If you like supporting local businesses, this is definitely one to go to! Thanks QC for the best pizza I've ever had!read more

If anyone had suggested to me a few years ago that I try a slice of a Pickle Pizza, I would have said "absolutely not."... However, I had an opportunity to do so at the the Taste of White Bear this past weekend and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised -- and actually went back for a second piece. Loved the garlicky sauce, pickles and Canadian Bacon combo! Can;t wait now to visit the restaurant and order a WHOLE pizza.read more

BEST PIZZA EVER!! I am a pickle-addict, so when I saw dill pickle pizza I knew I had to have it. When we arrived at the... restaurant we were greeted by the owner, who is one of the nicest people ever and gave us a warm welcome. We ordered the dill pickle pizza, as well as the elote pizza, and WOW!! Both pizzas were so flavorful, had so many topping, the crust was phenomenal, and they were both such distinct unique pizza flavors that just worked perfectly. Everyone who likes pizza should come here. I guarantee you it will be the best pizza of your life!read more

We ordered the Keto King with Mushrooms tonight. Had to keep reminding myself that the crust was made with cauliflower,... because it is hard to believe that it is! The crust was crunchy and had some chew and the toppings were absolutely delicious. It really hit that mark for wanting pizza and eating a low carbohydrate diet. Will absolutely eat from here again!read more

Very nice! And from those actually from the QC... Close to my home both physically and in my heart being from the QC of... IA. The pizza sauce and cheese balance is perfect plus the crust is just right. For those craving the Happy J (and you know what this stands for you are from the QC) then the Sour Pig is as close to the Canadian bacon and sauerkraut from home as you can get! It's good. Really good. I'd dial down the seasoning just a bit for my taste but overall it is 4.5 stars without a doubt. The crust is far better than the Happy J. Can't be more ecstatic that this place is in the Twin Cities and so close to me too.read more

Best pizza I've had in quite some time! The garbage pizza was stacked with toppings and the crust was delightfully... crispy. The veggies still had crunch and texture. The yo-yo bread was a crisp, cheesy, and garlicky treat. Looking forward to our next visit.read more

A friend of mine recommended this place to me. I got a large Kinda Big Dill pizza. WOW... I was unsure about pickles on... pizza until today. Also the service I received was absolutely amazing. The guy there insisted that we tried a slice before heading out because he wanted to make sure we absolutely loved it. And we did! It was cooked to perfection. I don’t write reviews often but I just had to share. I will definitely be returning and I would recommend anyone looking for good pizza to try this place!read more

QC Pizza is a solid pizza spot. Though it’s placed in a strip mall you’ll be surprised at how good the quality is.... The wait was 49 minutes on a slow Sunday but the wait was worth it. Portions and ingredient quantities are massive. Staff was kind and direct about the time of wait. Bathrooms were clean. They had delicious condiments.read more

Had the "Big Dill" pizza and it was very good!! I LOVE pickles but next time I'd ask for half the amount cause it was... too much. There were even pickles under the cheese!! (It was like a pepperoni pizza but with pickle slices.) Good stuff!! The location has very limited seating so keep that in mind when planning to dine in...read more

Ordered a small "Big Dill" to bring to work to share with coworkers. Ordered online to be ready the next day at noon;... they open at 11, noon is the earliest time they offer online. First time there, so left early - got there at 11:30. Despite being so early, they happily put it in the oven so it would be ready before noon. Know now to call when they open if I need it before noon 🙂 Got the Pickle Pizza as a 'let's try different things' exercise and was happily surprised. The pickles are mild, the flavors of the canadian bacon and sauce go really well together, and the crust is GREAT. Will definitely start ordering here for work lunches. Next company pizza lunch is coming from QC!read more

Incredible pizza! Unique crust style that is incomparable. I never eat the crust, but here my plate is clean. Fantastic... homemade toppings that generously cover the pizza. Unique and creative topping combinations that are delicious and set QC apart from the herd. And a zesty sauce that doesn't get lost among all of the flavors. An instant favorite! Friendly and engaging proprietors are the icing on the cake. Keep up the great work!read more

Tried QC Pizza for the first time for lunch today, it was absolutely phenomenal. We had yo yo bread and a pepperoni... pizza. Both have become my absolute favorite in the Twin Cities!! From the fantastic flavors of the dipping sauce for the yo yo bread to the delicious cup pepperoni of the pizza - just SO good!!! 🤤 The service was great too and we really enjoyed getting to know and getting to chat with Dennis the owner. We will for sure be back!!!read more

QC Pizza's Big Dill Pizza is one of the best pizzas I've ever had, which is crazy for me since I don't even really like... pickles all that much. The combination of the pickles, smoked Canadian bacon, cheese, and garlic dill sauce is fantastic. The crust is thin and crispy, just how I like. I've had the taco pizza as well, the sausage and toppings were delicious, added sour cream and taco sauce. Highly recommend!read more

This is a truly welcome addition to the Twin Cities pizza scene. The QC king pizza, with finely ground wonderfully... seasoned pork sausage is one of the most delicious toppings in the area. Be sure to add the seasoned mushrooms made in house. The yo-yo bread was some of the most savory, garlic cheese bread I have ever had in a restaurant. It is up there with the best homemade versions. After repeated visits, this place has been consistently great. Pizzas are always delicious and the employees are very friendly. Be sure to sign up for email updates and coupons. It's definitely worth it to save a few dollars while enjoying the best pizza in the area. Without a doubt, I would visit QC Pizza again. It's delicious!read more

Delicious pizzas. We had the Big Dill Pickle pizza, with Canadian bacon and garlic dill cream sauce. So good! The crust... was flavorful & slightly chewy. Also ordered a cauliflower crust pie with pepperoni cups & a light char. Flavorful, with a crisp crust. Met Dennis, the owner, who was super friendly & gave us the info on what makes his Quad Cities pizzas special. We will be back!read more

A friend from the quad cities recommended this place. He said nothing in this area comes even close to it. We drove... 45 min to try the pizza and it was well worth the drive. They don't over sauce, plus the sauce taste delicious. We got The Meat pizza (3 meat) and although that was very good, the sausage on it was amazing. Not like other sausage you find on pizza. I'm normally not a sausage pizza fan but would definitely go back just for that. I highly recommend this place.read more

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon, it was not busy, ordered the "King" and the taste and texture of the pizza was... phenomenal! Crispy on the edges, firm but soft underside, the crumbled sausage was a nice change from the clumps that you get on other pizza. Overall, it was a really good change of pace. Definitely will be back!read more

The owner is a genuine great guy. The pizza is top notch. You can taste the malt in the crust, a good unique... difference. They LOAD on the toppings. Sausage covers the whole thing, every inch. The wife and I got a Meats 16", and despite being pigs, the two of us could only finish half. Can't wait to have the rest tomorrow. I'll definitely be back. This gem has been around 3/4 of a year less than a mile away and somehow I didn't know it. Better late than never I guess!read more

Finally got to try QC pizza tonight and I wasn't disappointed. Dennis is super friendly and we had a nice conversation... while waiting for my pizza. When it was finished he insisted I try a slice before I leave because pizza is always better fresh out of the oven. I tried the big dill and it was great. The pizza seemed to have quality ingredients used and plenty of them. Excellent pizza from top to bottom!read more

Pizza is amazing! To the people concerned about price- it's well worth it. They do NOT skimp on the toppings. The... ingredients are super fresh. The owner really has a passion for his food. He is regularly there ready to greet you with a smile and some small talk while you wait for your food. Nice guy. Not many places like this around. A total gem! Definitely recommend the Taco and Big Dill but they are all really good. Give 'em a try, you won't be disappointed!!read more

Hands down amazing, Went in there treated with 100 percent respect. Really great food I definitely recommend trying. I... had the pickle pizza and the chicken bacon ranch. Only input I could give is I wish there was more crust options and wish they had a barbecue chicken pizza. The sauce is really good and the meat was on point. New favourite pizza place.read more

First time trying QC. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. Comparable if not better than Savoy's. I couldn't stop eating it. A little... spicy for the kids but other than that excellent! You've got to try it. To QC: Maybe you could add a less spicy version for kids? I'll definitely be back!read more

Had QC for dinner and got a pasta dish (just because I was by myself) which I was very satisfied with. Talked with the... owner for awhile and he said that he was going to make a pizza for himself and wanted me to try. He made their signature sausage pizza and man did I love it. You can definitely taste the difference with the homemade sausage and pizza crust. Also, the sauce is probably the most flavorful pizza sauce I’ve ever tasted. Will definitely be going back!!!read more

What's not to love? The sausage is hands down some of the best in the Twin Cities. The narrow slices are easy to hold... and eat. The inventive pizzas like famous Big Dill demonstrate a well-balanced pizza and a true chef's touch. Most importantly, the owner Dennis is truly passionate about pizza pies. He and his team take pizza making very seriously and want to be sure that everyone that eats there feels the love that goes into the food. Passion is the key to good food and QC Pizza is already established as one of the best pie shops in all of Minnesota!read more
