Give Me J&S Pizza

Posted on July 14, 2021 at 4:36 PM by Claire Rodgers

Early in the morning, quality ingredients are mixed to make delicious dough. The aroma of yeast, as pizza crusts rise, settles in the kitchen and dining areas. 

Old friends catching up, little league teams, and family birthday celebrations will soon come together and enjoy that handmade dough as it becomes a one-of-a-kind creation at J&S Pizza here in Liberty. 

This family-owned restaurant is the dream of Josh and Sherry, the actual J&S. Josh has spent his entire career in pizza. He’s not only a professional, he’s passionate, and it shows. His wife Sherry is his biggest supporter and favorite recipe tester, at least for now. With a 1-year-old son and another on the way, Josh and Sherry are sure to have plenty of inspiration and opinions from the youngest members of their team.

J&S Pizza isn’t the place you just come and order a pepperoni pizza. You can, but you’d be missing out. With pizzas like Philly Cheese Steak, Chicken Margherita, J&S Meatball, and CHZ Burger, you’ll want to order more than one and try them all. In addition to a full menu of loaded pizza, J&S also serves up calzones, pastas and salads. They even offer lunch and weeknight deals.

The menu at J&S Pizza features a variety of specialty combinations. Most notably, is the Jalapeño Popper Pizza. They’ve taken the famous appetizer and made it into one of their most requested favorites. Their fresh made dough is prepped and topped with whipped cream cheese, pepperoni, jalapeños, bacon, mozzarella, and pepper jack cheese. After some time in the extremely hot pizza oven, it’s ready to be devoured. Because that is what happens, it goes fast.

Since its opening in 2016, J&S Pizza has become a staple restaurant in the Liberty community. It’s not hard to see why. Josh and Sherry love the family community that is Liberty. Their customers are like their family. You can see it in their service, the quality of their food, and the atmosphere of the restaurant. 

The Liberty community certainly loves them too. During the month of March, J&S Pizza emerged victorious as the champion of our Takeout Tournament. They made it through four rounds of fierce competition against 15 other local takeout restaurants before taking their title as the crowd favorite.
