Amazing pizza at Nima's - Gassville, AR

Being from NJ now (and previously in NYC for 12 years), I have to admit that I didn't expect to get incredible pizza in a small Arkansas town but Nima's is pretty remarkable. And no I don't work for them - I was visiting my in-laws who live in Mountain Home. My in-laws heard about the place and that they have been winning some pizza awards so we were intrigued to try it.

We ordered the Supreme (pepperoni, sausage, green peppers, mushrooms and onions) in a family size sheet which was a crazy amount of pizza for 6 of us. But for $27 how could we resist?

The crust was not too crisp and not too chewy. I would describe the style of pizza to be something between thin and thick crust. What we really loved was that the peppers, mushrooms and onions were diced small so that each bite had some of each rather than having long strings of peppers or onions that don't always cooperate when you bite into the slice.

My only minor criticism was that the sodas were all from a vending machine - pizza like that deserves to have fountain soda with it. And probably beer (I didn't see that they serve it).

Now that we're back home, our usual slice place still keeps us happy but we think about Nima's quite fondly.

    Tell me can you remember if the sauce they used for the pizza was sweet???? we where their several year's ago and found that the sauce was too sweet, not to our liking, so we never went back but we would be willing to try them again if they changed the sauce.
    What say you.

      I didn't think it was an overpowering sauce either way (not too salty, not too sweet). I do recall that the sauce was used quite sparingly.
