Eager to try the new pizza joint in our small town, we wanted to give them a fair shot and went with a traditional pepperoni, a cheese, and then added one of their specialty pizzas with pulled pork & BBQ sauce. The guy that answered the phone was really chipper and pleasant but passed the phone to a woman whose customer service skills could use some help. She nearly deterred our business completely, I almost think that was her goal. Nonetheless, we ordered and opted to pick-up since is was conveyed delivery wasn’t convenient for them at the time. We noticed when we walked in, the crust is precooked and stored in plastic bags, waiting for toppings. I didn’t like that. I understand the dough is harder to toss because it’s sourdough but I feel a pizza should be fresh, crust & all. After digging in it was noticed right away the inconsistency of the crust. It was either WAY to stiff (and hard to chew) or so floppy the toppings would slide off completely (see photo). The cheese and sauce was a big problem for me and tasted of very poor quality. I enjoyed the pulled pork pizza the most, as it didn’t have either of these toppings. The guys working inside when we picked up were an absolute pleasure, really friendly. The rest of the experience was underwhelming to say the least.

Not a fan of the dough being mostly cooked and then sitting around until you order. Thunderhead says it’s because the sour dough is “hard to do” and so that they can get the pizzas out fast. Partially pre-cooked dough also probably contributes to the inconsistency of the flop. All three pies I tried ranged from no flop to so floppy that they completely fell apart. The cheese and sauce also tasted cheap. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful which is why I’m not giving Thunderhead a score in the 4s. I’d eat Thunderhead over Papa Johns or Dominos but that’s about it.
