You never know where you’re going to find pizza.  Last week, I was driving around trying to get L to sleep.  My favorite route is down M-43 towards Bangor because there’s a long stretch with only one stop light.  I don’t know how I never noticed it before, but not far outside Kalamazoo, there’s a little market advertising pizza. I filed it away in the ol’ short term memory for the weekend.

A couple days ago, I was hopping around from party store to party store on a futile search for a friend to find Founders Brewing KBS.  I figured I was wasting my time, but I wanted to go out to that little corner market outside of town, if for nothing else, just to see if they have carry out menus.

Turns out, they didn’t have the beer, but I did wander back to the kitchen area where there was a stack of paper menus.  I picked one up to take home because I wasn’t in the mood for pizza at that time, but it would only be about 24 hours before I was.

Dougherty’s Corners Market is just to the east of Almena Drive on Main Street in Oshtemo Township.  The small building leans towards the typical party store with a few more general grocery items.  In the back of the space, is a pretty large kitchen serving up a pretty large menu of pizza and grinders. 

I asked J if she was interested in pizza if I ordered.  She said she’d eat a couple pieces, so I got half of my 16″ pizza was plain cheese.  My half I got with pepperoni, bacon, and jalapenos.  They were doing a special on any size three topping pizza, so I went for the jalapenos in addition to my usual pepperoni and bacon.

I was told on the phone it would be about 20 minutes, so I took my time getting out to the store.  I got there almost right at 20 minutes and my pizza still had a few minutes.  I was handed the ticket to go pay at the front.  I grabbed a Pepsi and a Mt. Dew out of the cooler near the cash register to round out my meal.  The total with the two pops was just a little over $13.

After paying, I went back to the kitchen area to wait.  By the time I walked back, my pizza had been pulled out of the oven and boxed up.  The ladies working saw me walk back in and grabbed the box to hand it to me.

The pizza from Dougherty’s Corners Market isn’t anything you wouldn’t expect from a place like this.  It’s a thicker crust similar to Papa Johns but it had a nice crunch to it on the ends.  It’s a hand stretched dough so you get that little extra chewiness.  The surprising thing to me was that the pizza was not greasy.  The pepperoni and bacon were nice and crispy while the sauce had a little bit of a bitter taste to it.

Doughtery’s Corners pizza serves up a pretty standard pizza and a great price.  It’s one of those pizzas that don’t immediately jump out at  you, but it’s a solid pizza and the price makes it even more attractive.
