Today for lunch I ventured deeper into the valley to Valley Village. Not that deep I know. There is a small place hidden in a strip mall, as most places around around here. This place however you really can't see from the road. They have however, have a wood fired oven, which is what brought me here. There was a lovely lady working the counter that convinced me I'd love the pizza. She was nice enough to let me take pictures as well. I ordered a large 18 inch pizza and it was 15 dollars. On half of it I ordered sausage and green peppers. Boy was there a lot of toppings.

The pizza was just average unfortunately. It looked pretty good. The first thing I noticed as you can see, there was a whole lot of toppings. The peppers were thick chunks and the sausage were bog round slices. They covered the whole half a pizza completely. So this was all too much for me, and it made it very difficult to eat a slice. The cheese slice on the other hand: The first bite was a taste explosion of a very heavily spiced sauce. It was a thick tomato paste with lots of flavor. The cheese was pretty typical, there was a good amount of it compared to the sauce. Very oily though. The crust was pretty crispy from the high heat the wood puts out. At first I liked the crust it had pretty good flavor, although not as much smokey flavor as I was hoping. As the pizza started to cool off however the crust became very tough. It was a dense crust and very chewy. I guess this experience goes to show that just because it has a wood fired oven doesn't mean its going to be amazing pizza. But I give it credit for having one anyway.
