Pizza Planet has been serving the best pizza in Amarillo since 1974. That’s when Kerry opened up on Paramount street. We were one of the first Pizza joints to open but many more followed. We had a lot of competition with the major chains. They have come and gone. Thanks to you, our customers, we are still here and growing.
