Our Trip to House of Pizza, Lancaster, Pa.
« on: February 18, 2012, 10:16:56 PM »
I had a pleasant surprise when my granddaughter invited to take me to a pizza business in Lancaster that I never tried before.  http://houseofpizza.com/ and the menu at http://houseofpizza.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=1&Itemid=4

My granddaughter, great-granddaughter, and I went shopping at Wal-Mart before we visited the House of Pizza.  I donít know why I never tried the House of Pizza before, but we do have many pizzerias in our area that I never tried.  My granddaughter told me their pizza was different than other pizza businesses in our area, so I was excited to go and try their pizza.

I was pleasantly surprised at how different their pizzas were and really enjoyed the pizza we ate.  The pizza reminded me more of a Chicago style, but really wasnít.  The rim is crispy and the bottom is crispy, but the middle of the crust is soft.  I am not sure if they use a different mozzarella than I have ever tried before or if there is a blend of chesses on the pizza we ate, but the cheese was enjoyable too.  The tomato sauce was also good.  I asked how they bake their pizzas and if they are baked in a pan and they said no, the dough is fermented for a day, then shaped and baked on the stone.  I couldnít see what type of ovens the pizzas were baked in, or how they shaped their pizzas, but might go back some day and investigate more.  They were busy tonight. I sure donít know how they prepared the crust, but it almost melted in your mouth when it was eaten.  House of Pizza also has another pizza business in Millersville which is close to Lancaster.  There are two sides to the House of Pizza that we visited tonight.  We sat on the non bar side.

I sure would like to be able to make a pizza like I had tonight, but wouldnít know where would be the first place to start.

I had an enjoyable afternoon and evening.   ;D

Dave,

House of Pizza isn't really "swanky", but like some of the pizza businesses we have in our area.  The pizza businesses in our area are bigger than most NY places.  The prices at the House of Pizza are great too, plus the pizza was really good.  ;D

Norma, if you wanted to recreate this, I'd talk to Larry.  His pizzeria, Lorenzo's, puts out a pie that is very very close to this (and possibly a bit better).

Scott,

I wouldn't mind recreating this pizza.  I thought it tasted very good.  Let me know where I should start.  I might go to the House of Pizza and look around a little better when they aren't as busy.

Thanks!  ;D
