Troubadours Gourmet Pizza (long)

At Mrs. Swift's insistance we got a pizza from this place last night. It was not really offensive but I don't think I'll go back. They have a fleet of cute little delivery cars and offer curbside pickup. The menu is limited to pizza ("gourmet" with a thick crust, lighter with a thin crust or construct your own in the traditional style, or inverted), salads, "homemade" pies, 20 teas and pot pies. Their speciality appears to be pies like: chorizo, chile rellenos, spanish onion, black olives, jalapenos, cacique cheese, mozzarella and cayenne; lump crabmeat, mozzarella and white sauce; lamb, eggplant, raisins, tomato, sweet onion, green olives and goat cheese; seared tuna, spring onion, papaya, and seafood marinara sauce; seared ahi tuna, shrimp tempura, lump crabmeat, avocado with spicy ponzu sauce. I think you can get the picture. So perhaps it wasn't fair of us to order mushrooms (shitake), red onions, garlic. cilantro and sausage. You get your choice of red, white or pesto sauce (we got red). The crust was spongy and floury, and the edge of the crust wasn't crispy or nicely charred. It also was unfortunately sweeter than I prefer. The sauce was pretty bland with no detectable spices. The onions and mushrooms were fine. We could neither see nor taste the garlic. The sausage was very mild and sweet as opposed to spicy. $17 for a 12 inch medium. Some of their combinations sound intriguing but I'm really put off by the crust. At 7:30 pm there were 11 people in the bar and 4 in the dining room. Eager and efficient service. 20969 Vantura Blvd., Woodland Hills. Troubadoursgourmetpizza.com.
