What's your appetite for another pizza place?

We've shown the world that we can eat burgers with the best of them, but what's our appetite for pizza? The Kansas City Star reports that Toppers Pizza intends to find out.

The chain based in Whitewater, Wisconsin, has entered rapid-growth mode -- 28 locations will become 50 over the next two years -- and the staging point for a pizza-pie takeover of Missouri is apparently going to be Kansas City.

Toppers has developed a number of signature items over its 20-year existence, but Topperstix -- breadsticks covered in cheese and garlic butter -- are its calling card. In addition to the standard,  there are Cinnamonstix, Baconstix, Tacostix and Pepperonistix.

The menu also includes grinders, boneless wings, and quesadillas. The pizzas have crazy flavors, from the mac n' cheese (topped with macaroni noodles smothered in mozzarella and cheddar) to the Potato Topper (twice-baked potatoes, cheddar, mozarella, green onions and bacon with sour cream on the side). Toppers appears to have taken the world of pub fare, whether it's potato skins or buffalo wings, and dropped it on a pizza.

Anybody had a chance to eat at a Toppers yet?
