    Klondike Pizza – out of Alaska and out of the ordinary
Adventures in food, fun and tall tales
Alaska has the highest moun- tains, biggest open spaces, most variety of wildlife, the best glaciers – but the best pizza? That’s at Klondike Pizza in quaint village of Arroyo Grande. The story is that after meeting at a blackjack table in Skagway, Alaska – the gateway to Klondike Gold Country – Mike and Pamela Dennis headed south, open- ing Klondike Pizza in September 1988. How they actually arrived
in Arroyo Grande is the subject of several original, true, authentic, and genuine tales about their adven- tures.
Peanuts, furry trout and tall tales
From the peanut shells littering the floor, the old Alaskan license plates, Mickey the Moose, a furry Arctic Trout and more, to those framed true, factual and genuine tales about the origins of Klondike Pizza, every view is reminiscent of Alaska. Music from the 1930s to to- day plays in the background. There’s even an epic movie that Pamela made about Alaska.
Realizing you have just entered an extraordinary place you begin thinking that one of those framed tales just might be true. “I am forever being told how romantic the way Mike and I met was,” Pamela said. Does it matter which tale is true? Sometimes the best tales are in the telling.
Delicious food and fun
Come on in, place your order and enjoy a bag of peanuts.
Pizzas are made from scratch. Toppings include pepperoni, sau- sage and more, with red or garlic sauce. Specialties include real Alas- kan reindeer sausage, Chicken Cor- don Bleu and Buffalo Style chicken pizzas. Burgers satisfy every taste with specialties like the Yukon
Jack and the Cheechako (meaning “greenhorn” in Alaska). Chicken sandwiches include Chicken Cordon Bleu, teriyaki and barbecue chicken, and Hula Chicken with pineapple. Try a grilled sandwich with Alaskan reindeer sausage or Louisiana hot sausage. Enjoy all kinds of salads, including the signa- ture Klondike Salad with mandarin oranges, almonds and Klondike’s sweet ‘n sour dressing.
During the Coronavirus pandemic, in-house seating will depend on the CDC rules. But no worries—there’s takeout, curbside delivery, home delivery with Café Runner, and patio seating. And while you’re there, you might even hear the factual, actual tale of how it all began!
