Pizza King [Chicken & Mozzerlla Salad]
THRIVE Lunch was on the east side of Appleton on Monday at Pizza King. To my surprise, they had a large menu that included many things outside of plain old pizza. Also, the place was actually pretty large, which I wouldn’t have thought from looking at the outside of the building on the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Meade Street. It is right across from Appleton Paper, which is a huge building. I knew it was large, but while eating lunch, I got a better idea of the mass of big red building. The pizza place also had rooms to rent out for specials occasions such as birthday parties.
Salads, Wraps, Sandwiches & Pizza
We arrived at the joint at around 11:00 and we were the first THRIVE goers to show up, which was a bit of a shock, because lately we show up at around 11:30 and people are already finished with their lunch and heading out the door. Anyways, they had a large menu hanging from the ceiling and it was a bit confusing, but the lady behind the counter made sure to answer any questions we had. Turns out there are were many options to choose from and they could all be made into a sandwich, salad or wrap. There was also a rather large pizza menu that was reasonably priced. A small (8 inch) chicken bruschetta pizza was only $5.50 and the salad I ordered, which included chicken, mozzarella, and my choice of veggies came to right around $6.
Fat Free Dressing Is the Devil
The salad was delivered to the table by a friendly staff member and it was a pretty massive salad for $6. For no additional cost I could add vegetables, so I decided on tomato, onion, sprouts, green pepper, and black olives alongside the lettuce, chicken, and mozzarella cheese. I also decided on fat free ranch dressing, which was terrible. I know better than to order fat free dressings, but it has been awhile, so decided to give it a try. It was absolutely as bad as I remember. It tasted like chemicals and pepper. Not exactly what I like to put on top of my salads, but luckily I didn’t put much on it. Anyways, the place was decent, but I don’t think I would go out of my way to eat here again.
