[Photo Story] Check Out Canyon Pizza’s New Home

It’s inevitable: Some of you will wind up on Beaver Ave. tonight craving a one dollar slice of pizza. When you show up at the corner of Beaver and Locust to find the Canyon doors closed, don’t panic! Just head two blocks west (towards the new target) and you will find the new home of Canyon Pizza.

Though the new location may never feel the same, who can resist the same dollar slices after a night well spent in State College?


The new location which unfortunately lacks long open windows and blue picnic tables.


Customers line up as they wait to place their orders.


A happy patron exchanges smiles with the Canyon employee as he is served his pizza.


 Canyon is definitely not gluten free.






The same essential Canyon Pizza condiments prevail. 


The iconic Canyon Pizza boxes are here to stay.


At the end of the day (well, night…), the price is what we really care about, right?

While seeing the old location across the street might evoke feelings of nostalgia for past drunken escapades, we assure you the new location houses the same old canyon, and the same old ranch, but with much better seating.
