On Tuesday, October 31, 2006, my wife and I had lunch in Winchester at Patsy's Pastry Pizzas, a fairly new out-of-the-way place at 500 West Jubal Early Drive, Suite 130.
She did not want pizza for her lunch, and elected to try a strawberry walnut green salad. I did want pizza, and ordered a large slice of one with sausage and cheese.
The restaurant was a medium-sized place at the end of a row of suites in a business park. The single room was separated into two sections by a double row of waist-high dividers running from front to back down the middle, forming an aisle.
Each section was provided with tables; some seated only two people, and the others, four. An official sign limited occupancy to a maximum of 30 persons.
When my order came I was surprised to see that it was a double-layer pizza; in other words, it had a crust. I suppose that was what makes it a pastry pizza, but I had never seen one like it before. The sausage, etc., was layered between the two crusts, and the top had some melted cheese.
The pizza dough had not been baked to a hard crust, and I liked its texture. I thought the pastry pizza idea was great, and it's the kind I'll be looking for in the future. My wife was pleased with her salad, and said that we should be sure to come back to this place.
This place has good salads and soups. The "pizza" is not really pizza. It is more of a croissant with toppings on it. I have tried it twice, and both times left my stomach torn up after eating the pizza. I have gallstones and have a hard time with fatty foods so that is probably why. If you think you are eating healthy with this place, think again. It is more like eating a buttery, fatty dessert. I will say that the salads are excellent though.
I was really disappointed when I visited, I have had the pleasure of enjoying some of their fare at meetings and took my kids there for lunch, the service was awful, maybe a bad day but WOW! And this was really surprising. The luch was lukewarm and not really what I expected but the cold service was the topper. Wont be going back.
