There’s no shortage of places to grab a slice around Birmingham, so what would Fat Boy’s Pizza bring to our local foodie scene? The enormous pizzas measuring 30″ across!

Don’t worry, that size is their large option. They also offer pizza by the slice (10″) and a 16″ pie.

What about the flavors? Though I haven’t had the privilege of experiencing Fat Boy’s Pizza, the menu and photos were enough to get my cravings going.

Some pizza options that caught my attention were:

  • BBQ Chicken: sliced chicken breast, red onion, Sweet Baby Ray’s bbq sauce + shredded mozzarella
  • The Trinity: garlic oil, shredded mozzarella, ricotta and grated oil

Seeking lighter fare? Try The Skinny Boy with fresh gulf shrimp, baby spinach, Roma tomatoes, artichoke hearts, garlic oil and shredded mozzarella.

You can view the full menu here.

Fat Boy’s Pizza is also known for its 2ft Challenge, where you can try to eat an entire 2 ft pizza in seven minutes or less. Do it and win a Fat Boy’s Pizza T-Shirt or gift card.

While we await more info about Fat Boy’s Pizza’s franchise expansion to the Birmingham area, you can drool over the menu items to come via their website, Facebook and Instagram.
