Papa Bear’s Pizza

Papa Bear’s Pizza is a true gem in Petersburg, offering visitors a taste of the traditions of great pizza making. The pizzeria prides itself on using only the freshest ingredients, including daily made dough from a recipe passed down from generation to generation.

One of the standout ingredients at Papa Bear’s Pizza is the Wisconsin cheese, which is specially made for Italian food. The meats used in the pizzas are of the highest quality, and the marinara sauce is freshly made, working as the perfect base for traditional pizzas. All these ingredients work together to create some of the best-tasting pizzas in town.

But that’s not all that Papa Bear’s Pizza has to offer. In addition to the famous pizzas, the restaurant also offers a variety of other dishes, including salads, subs, burgers, wraps, and chicken. And for dessert, visitors can choose from eight unique flavors of gourmet hard ice cream, making it the perfect place to satisfy any craving.

Papa Bear’s Pizza was established in 2003 by father and daughter Scott and Mandie H. The idea to become partners in the business was born when Scott and his wife Carolyn were considering leaving the state. Scott had run grocery stores for over 20 years before buying the restaurant, and when the company he was working for restructured and pulled out of Petersburg, he was planning to move. It was Mandie’s suggestion to buy the pizza parlor in town and become partners that led to the creation of Papa Bear’s Pizza.

Nearly 20 years later, Papa Bear’s Pizza has become a beloved institution in Petersburg, known for its delicious pizzas, fresh ingredients, and friendly service. Whether you’re a local or just passing through town, you won’t want to miss out on the chance to experience this classic pizzeria.
