Lou's Pizza - Olyphant


Whether Under the Bridge or in the Gas Station - It's Pretty Darn Good!

I've known about Lou's Pizza for years.  I've consumed many-a-slice sold at various gas station counters around NEPA and thought it was better than acceptable as far as fueling station pizza goes.  I've followed their social media for sometime and had their pizza at luncheons and parties, but I've never had the pizza fresh and on location.  The first lady and I were in the area for a fund raiser and ventured out on a quick journey to find the first pizzeria that I had not yet reviewed yet.  We accidentally made one wrong turn across "the bridge" and ran right into Lou's Pizza.  We knew right then we had to pull in and give the place a try!

The place is pretty small and unassuming with some bright vibrant signage.  It's neat and tidy inside with a couple of tables, a modern setup, a TV that rotates pictures of all of the various gourmet pizzas they serve, and pizza boxes piled high just waiting to be filled with pizza and sent out into the world!  We were on the run and eating light so we decided to go with a half tray of pizza which cost $7.40 which is an average price for a half tray of Old Forge style pizza.  The friendly lady at the counter took great care of us and our pizza was ready in less than 5 minutes.


When the pizza was brought to our table is was piping hot and looked so good with cheese just gushing and oozing everywhere.  I'm not a big fan of burned American (or any kind of cheese) so I was thrilled that this cheese was cooked to the perfect point of just melting together and flowing like lava but not burned.  The cheese was a very flavorful and rich blend which seemed to have some sort of Romano or Parmesan cheese involved in the mix.  The sauce was also very vibrant and tasty and combined so well with the sharper taste of the cheese.  I was appreciative of the volume of sauce on this pizza because with this flavorful cheese, you need enough sauce to balance the pie out.  It wasn't too dry, nor was it too saucy.  The crust was super light, impossibly tender and slightly crisp on the bottom.

Overall, I very much enjoyed my first fresh Lou's pizza.  It didn't taste anything like their gas station version of the pizza to me - it was so much better.  Then again, isn't every pizza when it is hot and fresh?!  I'm not typically an Old Forge style pizza fanatic, but this is right up there competing with some of the better rectangular pizzas in the region.  This place has good stuff and Lou's certainly receives the NEPA Pizza Review stamp of approval
