Franks Quad Cities Style Pizza Review – Silvis, IL

Franks Quad Cities Style Pizza Review

Frank’s Club Napoli Pizzeria, in Silvis, IL (part of Rock Island area) is purported to have created “Quad Cities Style” pizza. Never heard of it? Me neither, until a couple years ago, and I lived there for two years back in the day! What’s different about Quad Cities Style Pizza? The crust uses malt as an ingredient, it’s relatively flat but the edges are puffy and crispy. Tomato sauce has a little bit of kick from cayenne and red chili flakes. Toppings are under the cheese, (and there’s a boatload of cheese) and if you opt for a sausage pie, the sausage is crumbled, not chunks. Finally, no triangles or squares on this baby, the pie is sliced into strips.

Characteristics of this style of pizza include a pizza crust made with malt, tomato sauce sometimes made with cayenne and red chili flakes, toppings placed under the cheese, and strips being cut instead of slices.

So here’s the thing. Ordered half sausage, half pepperoni, glass of Old Style (of course), and I COULD NOT STOP EATING IT.  Wanted so desperately to take some home.  Finally pushed myself away from the table so I could get a few slices out of there.

People don’t go to Frank’s for ambiance. They go for the pizza (and some for pasta).  They were doing a fairly brisk business even at a weekend lunch.

I loved it. Serious.  Top three on my list.   Just off I-80 if you’re traveling on Main Street USA.  Cash only.

Here’s a link to their website.
