Fun Facts About Iowa Food We Bet You Didn’t Know

Iowa’s official nickname is “The Hawkeye State,” but another nickname we are known by is “The Corn State” or sometimes the “Land Where the Tall Corn Grows.” We are also well-known for the many hogs that inhabit Iowa and, of course, one particular famous sandwich that’s a staple at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse.

Flatbread vs. Pizza – What’s The Difference?

Well, first of all, the Big City Flatbreads we serve at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive are packed full of flavors to rival any pizza you’ve ever bitten into! Beyond that, there are a few other things that set the two foods apart from each other.

Flatbread “pizza” is generally made on a thinner, crispier crust using lighter toppings and sauce. Most often the sauce used is not a tomato sauce.

Since they have differing definitions, technically there is a slight difference between the two. Some people would love to argue the fact that pizzas and flatbreads are not […]
