Monical’s Pizza


The Monical family started their business in 1959 by making pizzas in Tolono, Illinois, which is a small town just south of Champaign. The recipe that the Monical family came up with quickly became a hit with the people in Tolono. Soon Monical’s Pizza restaurant was born and grew across Illinois and neighboring states. Today Monical’s can be mainly found in central Illinois, however, there are several restaurants in Indiana, and one in Missouri and Wisconsin.

Monical’s is known for their crispy baked thin-crust pizza. The thin-crust pizza is one of the most famous and ordered items on the menu. Monical’s also offers a pan crust and gluten-free crust. You can pick several options when it comes to what you want on your pizza. If you want to build your own pizza you have 8 meats, and 12 veggie toppings to pick from. If you build your own pizza it can add $0.60-$2.20 for each additional topping you put on it (price depends on what size of pizza). You could also pick a specialty pizza: BBQ Chicken, Mighty Meat, Delight, Italian Special, Deluxe, Hawaiian, Maroon Special, and Veggie. Depending on the pizza’s crust and size, the price varies from $6.25 to $30.30.
