We had been in search of extra hidden gems additional outdoors Indianapolis and acquired the within scoop that this Stoney’s Sourdough Pizza place is the actual deal. They’re up in Kokomo in what seems to be like an previous Household Video retailer that’s now a comfort retailer for a gasoline station. I am a sucker for a pizza wall mural so I needed to pose for a photograph. Additionally, I nonetheless have individuals stealing my content material so I will hyperlink again to my Indy Pizza Weblog homepage.
This place has some quirks, nothing too loopy however some issues price declaring if you’re making Stoney’s your pizza tourism vacation spot. They’ve a couple of dozen bar top chairs in opposition to the window, after which two small cubicles contained in the comfort retailer aspect. They solely have 2 liters as a result of they’re principally a carryout and supply enterprise, so we went and acquired 32 oz fountain drinks from the comfort retailer for $1.50. The general public restroom can also be positioned within the comfort retailer aspect and it is for purchasers solely (therefore, purchase your drink over there after which come again to the pizza aspect to sit down down).
The within is tremendous clear and appears prefer it was renovated prior to now couple years. There have been solely two staff working within the store and I believe a couple of extra had been out doing deliveries. To dine in we acquired our two pizzas and two sides in about quarter-hour it did not take lengthy in any respect.
I used to be wanting this place up on social media forward of time and knew I wished to attempt their Bread Pan Pizza, like a sourdough model of Detroit fashion. Every part is sourdough, from the common pizza crust to the Garlic Parm Bites to the sourdough breadsticks.
The breadsticks had been a bit of dry however had a great taste and texture. My favourite aspect was the Garlic Parm Bites – they put them right into a bag with a beneficiant quantity of parmesan cheese and provides them a great shake. There’s a ton of additional parm left within the backside of the bag. Get the Garlic Parm Bites, do not miss out!
The Bread Pan Pizza with pepperoni, because the title implies, seems to be prefer it was cooked in a 9×5 breadpan. This solely makes 2 fairly good sized slices of thick pan pizza, so I might both contemplate this like a private pan pizza or you can even order the Bread Pan Pizza as a aspect dish. The sourdough taste got here via stronger within the pan pizza, and it was a superbly executed Detroit fashion with greasy golden spongy heart and cheese crisps across the high.
The sourdough taste was extra delicate within the common pizza crust, which was hand tossed fashion with massive foldable slices. We acquired pepperoni and bacon on half and meat lovers on the opposite half. The toppings had been superb and every part stayed in place – even on the meatlover aspect with heaps of sausage, pepperoni, ham, and bacon the cheese saved every part glued down so it did not try this cheese blanket factor the place every part slides off directly.
In abstract, we beloved the sourdough twist that had simply sufficient zing to it with out being obnoxious. Our favorites had been the Garlic Parm Bites and the Bread Pan Pizza. Definitely worth the 45 minute drive from Indy and that is saying one thing!
