We had been in search of extra hidden gems additional exterior Indianapolis and bought the within scoop that this Stoney’s Sourdough Pizza place is the actual deal. They’re up in Kokomo in what appears to be like like an previous Household Video retailer that’s now a comfort retailer for a fuel station. I am a sucker for a pizza wall mural so I needed to pose for a photograph. Additionally, I nonetheless have folks 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 value declaring if you’re making Stoney’s your pizza tourism vacation spot. They’ve a few 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 largely a carryout and supply enterprise, so we went and bought 32 oz fountain drinks from the comfort retailer for $1.50. The general public restroom can also be situated within the comfort retailer aspect and it is for patrons 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 previously couple years. There have been solely two staff working within the store and I feel a number of extra had been out doing deliveries. To dine in we bought 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. All the things is sourdough, from the common pizza crust to the Garlic Parm Bites to the sourdough breadsticks.
The breadsticks had been a little bit dry however had a very good 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 very good 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 identify implies, appears to be like prefer it was cooked in a 9×5 breadpan. This solely makes 2 fairly good sized slices of thick pan pizza, so I’d both take into account this like a private pan pizza or you can even order the Bread Pan Pizza as a aspect dish. The sourdough taste got here by means of 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 giant foldable slices. We bought pepperoni and bacon on half and meat lovers on the opposite half. The toppings had been superb and all the pieces stayed in place – even on the meatlover aspect with heaps of sausage, pepperoni, ham, and bacon the cheese saved all the pieces glued down so it did not do this cheese blanket factor the place all the pieces slides off without delay.
In abstract, we liked 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!
