Pizza House has been a Galesburg favorite since 1955 when it opened. The same recipes have been used since the beginning. People that came in many years ago can come in today and remember that great pizza they ate in the past. We use the best ingredients available and almost all of our ingredients are fresh. We are known for our thin crust pizza and house salads.

What's your all-time favorite Galesburg pizza?

I stopped by Pizza House on Tuesday so I could get some photos of their delicious pizza, and co-owner John Sperlin (along with his brother and majority owner DeWayne Sperlin) was kind enough to send me packing with a couple of pizzas to share with the newsroom. At 4 p.m., stomachs were craving food, and the pizzas didn’t last long, as Assignments Editor Lisa Coon, Web Editor Ken Exum, business reporter John Pulliam, cops reporter Jen Wheeler and columnist Tom Loewy were among those sampling Pizza House pizza. Lisa, who lives in East Peoria and has her personal favorites over there, said Pizza House is definitely her favorite Galesburg pizza.
Editor Tom Martin, who had the day off Tuesday, came in this morning to see two empty pizza boxes in the newsroom and was disappointed he missed out on his favorite Galesburg pizza. John Sperlin told me that Pizza House has used the same recipe for its pizza since 1955. And John added while it's rather expensive, they do ship their pizza, sending as far away as California and Colorado.
As of 10 a.m. today, my unofficial favorite pizza poll has 97 votes and Pizza House is running away with 46 percent of the vote, with Happy Joe's second at 16 percent. You can still vote in the poll at right.

More conventional pizza fare also has its place in the city’s landscape, and spots like Hammer’s, which moves roughly 50 plus pizzas on Fridays, and Pizza House, which can sell upward of 200, serve up classic takes on traditional favorites.
Lifelong Galesburg resident and retired Galesburg Fire Department firefighter Randy Fox agrees pizza is inextricably tied to childhood memories. His father was a GPD officer and used to bring home Pizza House pizzas.
“It was kind of a treat to us,” Fox said. “Now, when we get one, it takes you back to when you were a child.”
Pizza House owner Dewayne Sperlin says whether you’re out for an experimental pizza or one more akin to what you grew up eating, Galesburg’s pizza joints offer something for everyone, which is part of what makes the city’s pizza scene so special.
“Everyone has a little niche,” Sperlin said. “And everyone loves pizza. It just makes you feel good.”
