The Old Forge Pizza Company is all about hand-forged freshness. What does that mean exactly? It means good, simple ingredients made with hard work and patience. The dough is hand-stretched and given time to rise slowly creating the perfect light and crispy crust which is known as Old Forge. It’s like no pizza crust you have ever had before, and it’s sure to become one of your favorites. The traditional Old Forge style is a rectangular pizza, and the thin crust is a more traditional round pizza. The thin crust is a great option for the carb conscious. Straight from the mid-West, the Old Forge Pizza Company uses a unique blend of cheeses from a small, family dairy. The pizza sauce is also from a family-owned-and-operated farm where the plum tomatoes are allowed to ripen on the vine creating the best tomato flavor and the best pizza sauce. All of this attention to detail means that you can taste the quality.
What They’re Known for: Take and Bake! They make it, you take it, and you bake it. Perfect for après parties and sporting events or even just a quiet, enjoyable meal from your home or a suite’s kitchen/kitchenette. When you want great quality that is easy to make at home, this is a first-rate option. Of course they will bake it for you if you prefer, but there is really something special about that fresh out of the oven taste that makes this an excellent way to produce some delicious food.
What to Watch for: Too much bread. While most people say the regular crust is the perfect amount of dough, some people still find it too much for them. Go with the thin crust if they prefer more sauce and cheese in ratio to crust.
