What's the consensus on Joe Peep's?

I was there once about 30 years ago. I remember the pizza weighed a ton, was expensive and slightly greasy(which is ok) and delicious. What's it like now?

    i think they do a very solid thin crust version they call their blue collar. their regular pizza is quite heavy. i think it's one of the better thin crusts in the area.

      Thanks, cdub. Is their list of ingredients about the same as all pizza places? I'm hoping they have clams like Micelli's Pizza has.

        I agree that the "Blue Collar" thin crust pizza with one ot two toppings is the way to go at Joe Peep's.

        My first time at Jow Peep's, I had the Kitchen Sink Combo on Regular Crust -- very generous with toppings resulyed in a very soggy crust.

          Absolutely agree.
          Note that you can also buy the raw dough, and sauce if you like, and take it home and make a really great pizza with whatever you desire (I like arugula and prosciutto after baking the pie). I recommend leaving the dough at room temp for about an hour prior to rolling it. Bake at 475 - 500 on a pizza stone or pizza pan for about 10-12 mins. You won't be disappointed.

        Haven't tried Joe Peeps for a while. It was very inconsistent. When it was good it was very, very good. But when it was bad, you were in for a rough night.

          Thanks for the info. Maybe it depends on how busy they are at the time. It's worth another shot.
