The Best-Kept Secret to Great Pizza: Featuring Plymouth House of Pizza

In order to stand out from the crowd, restaurants need to have good relationships with their customers and an appeal that extends beyond homemade Alfredo sauce and an authentic Greek salad. Plymouth House of Pizza has all of those things because of its personable owner, great selection of food and community atmosphere.

The restaurant offers a wide variety of appetizers, subs, burgers, pizzas and pastas, with a large kid constituency that favors basic plain cheese pizza. It moved to a bigger location in Brigantine Square Plaza in 2006, but owner Jacob Pappas is still focused on the high-quality food and great service that has kept customers coming back since he bought the eatery in 1997.

A customer picks-up his order at Plymouth House of Pizza, which serves gluten-free pizzas that are a popular option.

Jake is known to greet everyone by name, making time to talk to his customers and get to know them. "A lot of people come to the House of Pizza not just for the good food or the great bargain but because of Jake and his personality," said Mark Vaz, a friend who helps Pappas with public relations.

If the combination of warm service and award-wining food wasn't enough, Plymouth House of Pizza has another trick up its sleeve to satisfy customers: friday night jam sessions.

"We give local musicians a focal point to get together that has really given them the impetus to dust off the instruments and have some real fun," said Pappas. "They perform original compositions and spontaneous jamming on the traditional and jazz blues forms, as well as improvising rhythm changes."

A view from outside, looking into the restaurant.

When they have a percussion player, the musical styles can range from Latin-inspired vamps, jazz and blues, a New Orleans two-beat, a Cajun rhythm on the washboard and even gypsy-inspired improvisation, which often brings the kitchen staff out of the back of house for a look.

The instruments are often as fun as the music, with harmonicas, washboards and ukuleles making past appearances. Pappas said that on one occasion, an opera singer from the Cape came and they played a German-language lullaby.

The music usually starts around 7 or 7:30 on Friday nights and all ages are welcome. You can find out more about Plymouth House of Pizza by calling (508) 746-0444/a>.
