Village Host Pizza in Aptos

Yesterday I went into Village Host Pizza for the first time. They are part of a small chain with locations in the Bay Area and SLO. A co-worker had given their burger a high recommendation and that's what I was there for. Unfortunately, they had a "No Sandwiches" sign up and that included burgers! So since I was there, I ordered a pizza. They have a large selection of toppings. I thought their prices were reasonable, especially compared to other local pizza joints. I ordered a small pizza with eight toppings.

After what felt like a very long wait, my number was called and I picked up my meal from the counter. Village Host's pizza is what I would call "pizza parlor" pizza. It's in the same style as what you might get at Shakey's, Straw Hat, and Round Table. I liked the cheese and sauce just fine. The toppings were of a good quality and generously applied to the pizza. Sadly, the crust was weak. It had a dry, not-so-fresh quality about it. I'm even wondering they had used some sort of pre-baked crust. It's too bad because they would have one of the better pizzas in mid-county if they had a decent crust.

But, the worst part of my Village Host experience was sitting in their FILTHY dinning room. I couldn't believe it. The floor was covered in debris from one end to another. The staff was in no hurry to bus the tables. Almost every unoccupied table was piled with garbage. It's hard to believe that a restaurant in a nice area like Seascape would run their business that way.

I do not recommend Village Host Pizza.
