The amount of times I’ve driven by on or on the outskirts of Peace A Pizza without stopping in is too high to count. I’m perplexed at myself. But earlier this week I was in the vicinity and decided it was finally time. Maybe the sun being out consistently has snapped me back into a bit of normalcy.
So when I stepped out of my car and saw a hippie and positive logo on the outside I was hoping I was in for a positive and vibrant experience. And that’s exactly what I got.
First things first, Catonsville is the home of this location. And even though I’ve spent a minuscule amount of time in the town, I felt at ease and at peace walking around. Yes I gave myself a few minutes to soak in the area. It may not look as historic as towns near you, but it still had a community feel to it that I welcome in my life.
Smack dab and nearly centrally located is this pizzeria. I was there at an off time so I had the whole place to myself. While that may sound lonely, it was fine by me. I was able to snap some photographs I otherwise might not have been able to.
Without even realizing, the two slices I ordered were based on my favorite ingredients. And I savored both. I went with the Buffalo Bleu Cheese and the Green Goat, with the latter containing pesto. For those who’ve been following this blog, I’ve raved about this sauce from the get go. More on that in a moment.
The chicken on my buffalo slice tasted fresh and real. That’s all you can ask for. I could pieces of chicken on this slice all day. I didn’t have all day though. The bleu cheese was delectable but the funny kicker is that instead of sour cream, they used crème fraîche instead of our cream. What’s the difference? You can read more here. The red peppers were a nice touch. This was a wonderful gourmet slice. And that’s what they tout.
The Green Goat is a funny one. When I ordered the slice at the counter, I forgot to ask what it was. I just liked how it looked and saw the green pesto sauce emanating from the slice. So after looking my pictures over and perusing the menu, I can deduct that is what I ordered. My excitement got the best of me. At the time I could only officially identify my slice as, ‘what is this?’ or just ‘this’. That’s the crack reporting you’re looking for I know.
The goat cheese and pesto are a winning combination. I love how both slices look. I’m admiring them even more a few days after the fact. The arugula and plum tomatoes also complement this slice accordingly. Man I love this one too.
I noticed they didn’t heat up either slice entirely. I’m actually glad they didn’t. I’ve mentioned before, that sometimes heating it up too much will cover up for glaring holes and issues with the pie itself. Lukewarm is a strong barometer of how the pizza truly tastes.What I ate is what I got. Makes sense right?
The vibe inside is one of happiness, harmony, and hippies. Did I just do some alliteration again? Oh boy. And I wanted to avoid using the word hippie if I could. But it applies here. I’m all for uplifting vibes and feeling good.
I had way too much fun here. I will have to come back here sooner much rather than further down the line. Whether it’s this particular location or elsewhere, I welcome trying some more unique and groovy slices.
I’m feeling those good vibrations.
Peace and Love,
