I have had it once before, Mimi and I went on a pizza road trip one night, but I only got a slice of cheese. Saucey being known for its assortment of bizarre pizza concoctions, I felt as though I had to go more in depth with their pizza. We strutted into the tiny shop, and of course out of nowhere Matt instantly knew the man behind the counter. Some bull that he went to high school with all the way out in Harrisburg, and who is now employed at Saucey, and enrolled at Dub C university. The whole time they were conversing I just thought in the back of my head if this bearded gentleman who I shared a mutual friend with was going to hook me up with that chicken bacon ranch pizza I was eyeing up. It never happened.
I ended up ordering the slice of the chicken bacon and ranch (CBR), mostly because I thought it was going to taste like a turkey bacon ranch ciabatta melt from Wawa, but somehow morphed into pizza form (Side note: when is Wawa going to start making their own personal pizzas?) . I also ended up ordering the “420” pizza. If I remember correctly, the pizza had chicken, mozzarella sticks, and French fries on it. Trippy!
I remember not being completely in love with the CBR, specifically because it was a sauce less pizza, which I am 95-97% against! Even though, I think self consciously it may have fallen into that 3-5% range. Overall, the pizza had excellent malleability to it, it folded most excellently. The ranch already built into the pizza was splendid, it even had some nice herbs sprinkled all over it which I enjoyed. What was really nice was the size of the slice as well, Big enough that you felt like you got your moneys worth plus a little.
The 420 pizza was a winner too. I think the mozzarella sticks added a nice flavor; I always love having mozzarella cheese on pizza. The french fries I felt sort of iffy on. They weren’t completely cooked all the way thorough, but I guess having so many toppings on one pie you can’t always get it perfect without jeopardizing the pizza being burnt and what not. The sauce to cheese ratio was good with a 1:1, and again very malleable.
With Saucey’s late hours on the weekends (open until 3 AM,) it’s a great place for the university students to go for a late night snack. As well as accepting “Ram Bucks” they also have great deals. For example, I think every day between the hours of 6-8 2 large pizzas are only $12! But you can check the menu for the others …. http://getsauceddubc.com/index.php
As one of the many competing pizza shops in West Chester, this is my new favorite place. Conveniently located on the corner of Market and High street, it will hopefully be around for a while.
