Wig & Pen Pizza
Iowa's best pizza!
The Iowa City Wig & Pen is inspired by a London club of the
same name whose members were either lawyers or journalists.
The building is located at 230 The Strand, London
and it survived both the Great Fire of London (1666)
and the WWII blitz.
Started in 1988 by attorney Tom Riley and
purchased by Richard Querrey in 1993, the Wig & Pen Pizza Pub
has been serving some of the area's best pizza, but don't
take our word for it.
Recently both Zagat.com and Thrillist.com
have mentioned "The Wig" as the best pizza in the state of Iowa.
We are also proud of the following accolades:
Iowa City Press Citizen - Reader's Choice Best Pizza in Johnson County 2018
Locals Love Us - Best Pizza 2019 & Best Carryout 2019
Floods in 1993 and 2008 couldn't knock us down,
as the building was completely gutted and rebuilt both times.
Today, we offer a family friendly dining experience
as well as carryout of our full menu.
Mobile carryout ordering is now available via
our own app or online at www.wigandpenpizzapub.com.
Whether this is your first visit or you are a long time regular,
all of us at the Wig want to express our gratitude
for the opportunity to serve you.
Welcome and thanks again! - W&PLearn Our History
