village pizza larchmont

For those of us that love it. what pizzas are good? I always get the village special with no anchovies. Sometimes, when I don't have enough money I get a pepperoni and mushroom. I was looking tonight at the menu and thinking of trying trying the chicken pizza. Also, has anyone tried the deep dish? Once I added sun-dried tomatoes to the pepperoni, it wasn't good. What have you tried? They have that clam one, but I'll never try that.

    Aww--so glad to see Village Pizza getting respect. My son and I used to go there, get a couple of slices of plain pizza and change from a ten-spot. Where else in LA can you dine out like this?

      I agree, delish and reasonable.

      Clam and garlic is actually a great pizza. Other than the Village Special (with anchovies) I usually get something basic like sausage, mushroom and green olives. Village isn't the place to go for gourmet ingredients like sun-dried tomatoes; you want to stick to the basics.

        I think their crust can't really accommodate too many ingredients, or it would become soggy.
        I usually get a do-it-myself with artichokes and mushrooms, or anchovies and olives.

          It probably is good, but I hate clams. Their sausage is amazing!

            Their meatball is pretty sweet, especially with either onions of peppers, but like bad nono said above, you can't load up that awesome thin crust too much without getting somewhat soggy! Damn, just ate dinner and now I'm hungry!

              It's so good, I do not care if it is soggy. The next day when I reheat it, I put it in the microwave for 50secs then into a cast iron pan and the crust gets crunchy. I tried to get a double sausage, pepperoni and double mushroom one time and the girl talked me out of it, saying the grease from the meat and the liquid from all the mushrooms would make it too soggy. So they are aware.
