A few years ago my kids gave me a cookbook that has copy cat recipes in it. There were recipes from restaurants that we had never heard of and one of them was the Pizza Ranch. Back in May we were in Columbus, NE playing soccer and they have a Pizza Ranch. We decided to eat there after our game with a few more of the soccer players. We were all very pleased with their food and the service was excellent. We came in right before closing and they weren't stocking the buffet any more, but we could ask for any pizza we wanted and they would put it out. The pizza was hot & delicious we will definitely be eating there again when we are around one.
The Pizza Ranch was a dream of Adrie Groeneweg in 1981 when he was only 19. He wondered why people had to drive out of town (Hull, IA) to get pizza. With a few recipes developed by his mom the Pizza Ranch was born. They now have over 190 locations across 13 states.
Pizza Ranch has a vision and mission to glorify God. On June 2, 2015, Pizza Ranch released a CD called Living Hope. There are 12 songs from many of their Christian artists, most of them are brand-new and were written for this CD around the theme of Hope.

My girls and I have been listening to this CD for a couple of weeks and we love it. The musicians are favorites of the Pizza Ranch and they are also favorites of ours. We already loved Day One and Francesca Battistelli is one of our favorite artists.
From Adrie Groeneweg, President & CEO of Pizza Ranch, Inc.: "This album has a very special meaning for Pizza Ranch. Although Pizza Ranch is not in the music business, many things have been happening, conversations have been taking place and doors have been opening for this album. Through these events, I believe it was obvious that God has been behind this for His specific purpose and putting it on our hearts to collectively create this project. As such, we call this our miracle album, Living Hope."
You can purchase the CD for $5 plus tax only in Pizza Ranch restaurants or you can download it at pizzaranch.com/livinghope through August 31. Or if you are in the US or Canada you can enter my giveaway below.
