Enjoy pizza on the prairie in Orient

True fact: Pizza tastes better in the great outdoors. Photo: Wallace Centers of Iowa.

Sample some of the state’s freshest flavors this summer at the Wallace Center in Orient. On Friday nights from June 2 to Sept. 29, head out to the prairie for a homemade pizza experience.

There are a few picnic tables, but you’d be wise to bring lawn chairs or a blanket for a dinner of pizza made from scratch and loaded with fresh veggies and local meats. If you’re hungry for more, the kitchen also serves house-made sides and desserts made from the farm’s own produce. And there’s live music every week, so plan on making it a long evening.

Reservations are filling up fast for June and July. Keep an eye out for later dates in August and September.
