Our friends over at The Pizza Project (blog writters from Montco) regularly review area pizza restaurants. They recently visited the local chain “Peace A Pizza” and weighed in with their thoughts.
It’s been a while since we tried a pie from area staple Peace A Pizza. I used to get it quite frequently around work until the one in Liberty Place shut down. Couple this with the fact that Spicy said the location near the King of Prussia Mall was fairly empty on a holiday-shopping Saturday and it had me a little worried for the business’s financial security. At the end of the day, of course, it is not my job to worry about how much cash is rolling in for the establishment. I am only here to review their pizza.
We ordered two pies, one a plain pie (which was free with a coupon) and the other a Brooklyn Bridge style pizza, which came with pepperoni, Italian sausage, peppers, and onions. Normally, it would also come with black olives, but we requested that they be left off. While we asked for no extra sauce on the cheese pie, it was still ample and I must say that I do have a weakness for the sweet brand of sauce they use on their pizza. The cheese provided on the pie I found to be the perfect amount, although I would not say that it was incredibly flavorful. Meanwhile, I have always found their dough to be a tad thick, almost to the point where you get a bit of a moist feel as if it can sometimes not be cooked all the way through.
For the Brooklyn Bridge pie, we did ask for extra sauce because, when confronted with a pie with a large amount of toppings, I often feel like the red sauce can become overwhelmed. The toppings were definitely amply provided and the peppers in particular seemed very fresh. I was not as impressed with their meats. The pepperoni was run of the mill, but the Italian sausage was particularly light on pop. I wasn’t really even a fan of the way they cut the sausage, what with it not being in chunks but rather in the thin, circular form of an average pepperoni slice. In the end, I would say it was probably pretty dumb for me to order this. In my book, once a pizza gets past two toppings, it becomes a little much. As a result, even though we had a decent amount of food left over after our meal (these thick slices can really fill you up), I found myself loathe to return for more.
A couple words on intangibles: Despite the fact that the place is probably ten to 15 minutes away from our house (with traffic), the pizza was still fairly hot when the wife returned home with it. So whatever they are using to make their pizza boxes, keep up the good work. Also, we were able to get both large pizzas for $15 with whatever coupon the wife found. While I cannot tell you where she found it, I can say it is out there so if you plan on placing an order from Peace A Pizza, make sure to check the Internet before picking up the phone.
