Big Mamma's and Papa's Pizzeria
1772 E. Colorado, Pasadena

I first heard about it from one of the blog comments (Thanks BadAss). This is actually a chain with several locations. You won't believe it but they do a 36" pizza. And they have a box for it! Go to the back parking lot and you'll see stacks of them. Unbelievable.

I've been driving up and down Colorado but never saw the place until recently. So I stopped by for lunch and they actually do a slice of this big pie. And they have a box for a slice too! This slice is probably bigger than a personal pizza at any other joint. So I had me a slice with mushrooms.

Now I can't say that the pizza itself is my favorite but it was decent and just to witness a slice of a huge pizza pie was worth the small price. The crust is thin but I found the pizza "wet". Could be b/c of the mushrooms. I'll have to try another topping another time.

I put a quarter and a regular size pen on the pan so you could get some perspective in the pics.

BTW: They actually deliver this 36" pie. And some stats on it from their website: Six pounds of homemade dough, homemade pizza sauce, eight pounds of mozzarella cheese and 100 slices of Pepperoni. The Big Papa weighs about 20 pounds. The Big Papa is sliced in about 60 3”X 3” square slices.

    me and my friends used to order one of their big mammas pizzas all the time. after a couple hours of playing basketball it always hit the spot. between 5 or 6 guys, there was still a lot left over. be sure to try the BBQ chicken with onions. its great.
