Old River Pizza Company Big Axe

Old River Pizza Company's The Big AxeOld River Pizza Company takes their challenges seriously. When they serve up the 5 lb“BIG AXE”,they get the party started by turning on some entry music to enter with the challenge and of course the ringing of a cow bell. They say this helps with the motivation factor for the challenger. Also, they serve the calzone on a 24’ by 12’ length log cutting board made by a family friend in Minnesota.

The BIG AXE consists of 2 lbs of dough (18″), 1 lb of mozz cheese, and 2 lbs of 5 different meats; Beef, Pepperoni., Canadian Bacon, Bavarian Sausage, Italian Sausage, including our homemade pizza sauce. You have one hour to finish it.
