But it's been a long time since I've had any. I haven't lived in Sierra Madre for years, and at any rate, Sierra Madre Pizza Company has been open for almost eight years, serving pizza that I like just as much as Village Pizzeria, for a fraction of the price. (Village Pizzeria calls its barbecue chicken pizza the best in Southern California, and I admit it is quite good... but look at those prices. Almost 24 bucks for an extra-large?)
But they have pizza by the slice, too, so the other day when I was in the neighborhood and hungry, I stopped in and got two slices. One pepperoni and one with sausage, bell pepper and mushroom.
But it's still pizza, so it was good. As I've written before, I've only had one slice of pizza in my life that was so bad I refused to eat it.
So I would have no problem eating Village Pizzeria again... but I doubt I will. As I wrote, I think Sierra Madre Pizza Company is just as good, and with Mamma's Brick Oven - my favorite pizza in the San Gabriel Valley - opening a second location on Rosemead just a couple of miles south of here, Village Pizzeria is one of those places that used to be a big part of my life and no longer is.
