So a friend mine kept talking about this Pizza place up in Valley Village called Joe Peeps and said it was one of the best or the best pizza in L..A. (I wasn’t paying attention) so naturally as a pizza freak I had to check it out. So on a sunny Saturday afternoon we drove up to Valley Village to put his words to the test. There are some good Pizza places in L.A. but nothing that really impressed me, especially NY style.
We get to the place and it’s like a little divey, community styled place with writing on the walls. Everything from signatures to quotes, bands and all. I also love when these places have celebrity pictures on the walls with their signatures, i don’t know but something about that is pretty cool. It was a small place but I was here for the Pizza not the atmosphere. As per my friends recommendation we ordered the large cheese with extra sated mushrooms. (I love mushrooms) The staff there were so nice and it seemed to be family owned, so that’s always a plus as they care for what they put out. You can see them make the pizza right in front of you so that’s definitely cool.
Finally the wait was over and the pizza looked great and smelt even better. So I finally took a taste and let me tell you the sated mushrooms with the cheese was AMAZING! The crust was just right, not too thin and not too much on the bread side. The portion was big enough and trust me I’m fussy, when I want a NY pizza I want a big ass slice! These guys are definitely pros and my friend actually delivered on his promise. I was definitely impressed. So if you have a craving for a giant pizza and are in the Valley, go to Joe Peeps!
