Co-owners Brent and Angie Boles, Brett Klausman and Lee Eaton cut the ribbon on their newest SPIN! Pizza location
SPIN!’s recipes are developed in collaboration with James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Smith, who also was just named national Chef Innovator of the Year. In addition to a diverse selection of traditional thin-and-bubbly crust, rustic whole wheat, and gluten-free pizzas, SPIN! serves a tremendous selection of fresh salads topped with made-from-scratch dressings, homemade soups, signature Panini and Italian deli sandwiches, appetizers, small plates, and all-natural gelato ice creams.
SPIN! is best known for its eclectic, affordable premium wines priced well below traditional restaurant prices and hand-spun, stone-fired pizzas.
SPIN!’s pizza dough is made fresh every day using several types of flour and its gluten free crust is renowned for its flavor and texture. SPIN! offers both traditional Pizza Rossa (red pizzas with crushed tomato sauce) and Pizza Bianca (white pizzas with roasted garlic olive oil glaze), and many hand-grated cheeses. Dairy-free cheese also is available.
SPIN! takes the unique step of boosting flavors by roasting pizza toppings including mushrooms, caramelized onions, artichokes, and even capers, pecans, pineapple, pine nuts, pancetta, and more in herbed olive oil in its stone hearth ovens each day.
Known for a rotating roster of affordable premium bottled and barrel wines, SPIN! also makes homemade white, red and blood orange sangrias and offers a selection of craft beers.
In addition to its wines and artisan menu, SPIN! is recognized for its convenient service model. Guests place their orders at a counter in the restaurant’s ordering lobby and then relax at their tables where servers deliver their food and beverages. This lets guests control their time whether they’re in a hurry or in the mood to leisurely hang out.
Ranked number one by Zagat among Kansas City area pizza restaurants, SPIN! has been awarded “best pizza” by numerous local publications, and honored for the city’s best gluten-free menu. SPIN! also has won a number of national and regional honors. It was listed among the “Rest of the 101 Best Restaurants” in the nation by TheDailyMeal.com, one of the most heavily visited “foodie” websites in the country, its Margherita Pizza was crowned one of the nation’s best dishes of the year by a trade magazine, and its architecture won Best of Show at the Mid America Design Awards.
The Lawrence SPIN! Pizza is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends.
