Out of the way, small, nothing fancy. But they do have great pizza! When you first drive up, you don't have high expectations. Village Pizza is located in a small strip mall towards the end of downtown Stokesdale. Do yourself a favor and go and try the pizza.
Pizza is one of those dishes that is really easy to get right, but so many get wrong. The flour should be a high protein spring wheat flour. The dough should be made daily and allowed to ferment. Fermentation is critical in dough to get the proper flavors and textures. Yes, this takes time and many pizza joints will skip and use a low protein flour and skimp on the fermentation. These are the first 2 mistakes. Next, you need a good sauce. Not sweet and it needs to be balanced. Garlic, oregano, and other spices should be balanced. Too much sauce and you risk soggy. Too little and its dry and lacking flavor. Cheese. Yes, good cheese and not too little and not too much. Loading up the pizza with too many toppings and it will not cook properly. Also, cooking, pizza must be cooked on a hearth never a pan and never in an impingement oven.
So if it is so simple why do so many get this wrong? The good news is Village Pizza gets it right. If you like NY/NJ style pizza and you are in the northwest area of Greensboro, NC, Give Village Pizza a try.
