Now Open: Red Wagon Pizza

If you’re in southwest Minneapolis, why pick 54th and Penn’s Red Wagon Pizza over Pizzeria Lola on Xerxes and Mozza Mia on France? Comparing one plain pepperoni pie to another, unless you love ultra-thin crust with a cracker-crisp cornicione, I don’t know that you would. But Red Wagon has a few amenities the other shops lack: a whopping 36 craft beers on tap and a more extensive dessert menu that includes a luscious Mason jar banana-cream pie. And if you’re tired of classic pizza toppings, the Reuben and banh mi pies improve on the sandwiches’ bread/filling ratio. •
