Since 1963, the Leucht family has been making pizza in Owensboro. Bob Leucht started PizzAroma, which is now run by his daughter Sherry Leucht Hayden.

Even though the locations may have changed over the years, the Leucht family’s dedication to making the best pizza from quality ingredients still remains at the forefront of everything they do.

If you have been a regular patron of PizzAroma for any amount of time, you may be aware that some favorite menu items do not necessarily have a permanent spot, but have been rotating on and off the menu for years.

One of those dishes is the infamous Fungus Humungas.

It starts with a mushroom “as big as your hand,” and is topped with garlic butter, tomatoes, black olives, onions and pepper rings then sprinkled with cheese and baked in the oven.

This delicious starter made its way back to the appetizer menu and remains a favorite of employees and diners alike.

Make sure you ask for the “Fungus” during your next visit to PizzaAroma at 611 Emory Drive in Wesleyan Park Plaza. They are open Monday – Thursday 11 a.m. – 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. – 11  p.m., and for Sunday Brunch       8 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
