I am not really into the chain pizza buffet's like Pizza Hut and Cicci's Pizza. I have found that it tends to be a mini chow festival. Now I have found a great local place for a pizza buffet. Encore Pizza in Johnston has a buffet that includes a nice salad bar with a selection of thin crust pizza for $7.41. It is a popular place for lunch so I recommend that you try to come early. There was not a time between 11am and 12pm where there was empty pizza pans. Pizza available for our buffet- pepperoni and jalapeño, pepperoni, chicken alfredo with mushrooms, sausage, cheese, and ham with pineapple.
5775 Merle Hay Road # 8 Johnston, IA 50131-2811 - (515) 276-1625
Open Weekdays 11am-1:30pm for the lunch buffet. They also are open for dinner and have a great selection of appetizers and pizzas.
