Country Folks Pizza: Kouts, Indiana


Country Folks Pizza in Kouts, Indiana should be the Indiana town you think of when you want pizza.

For twenty years this June, this Porter County pizza joint has been cookin’ up one heck of a perfect pie. This pizza is amazing!

This pizza is so amazing that I had to go grab a leftover slice after I wrote that second sentence. I kid you not. What will I do when it’s gone?

I had a meeting with Jesse Harper from JBH Productions who will be producing the pilot pitch for little Indiana. We met at Country Folks Pizza and chatted over water (me) and soft drinks (my husband and Jesse).

It smelled so good inside. After our sit-down was over–my husband, Jeremy, and I decided we had to bring home some pizza.

We didn’t take long to make up our minds. In fact, I think this was some sort of record! Looking over the sides and extras portion of the menu, we got started with Tomato and Cheese Bread. For the car. What? You think we could wait until we got home?

We didn’t take home just any pizza. We took home the most unusual pizza we’ve seen in any of the small Indiana towns we’ve traveled through. We took home a Pepper-Jack Swiss Beef Pizza! For research purposes, we had to get the 20″ pizza. It is loaded with two pounds of roast beef. Two pounds! They say it is equal to four foot long sandwiches worth! Yowza.

Laden with Pepper-Jack and Swiss Cheese, garlic butter, green peppers, and onions–it is impressive. This is the Country Folks Pizza people’s signature creation. Customers raved about this delectable sandwich selection so much, they thought, “Why not turn it into pizza?”

They sent me home with a pizza cutter because, if they cut it in store right then, butter would have leaked all over. Oh. My. Word. I ate it for dinner, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I also ate it cold. I also just ate it again.  Any way you slice it–I am obsessed!

You know me. You know my pizza obsession. You need to know Country Folks Pizza. It’s more proof that great things are frequently found in the smallest of packages.

THIS is a menu. Between Stan’s Stuffed Pizza or the classic crust, from super-thin to deep dish, Country Folks Pizza has it!

A slew of sandwiches and their own pizza creations, you’ll find plenty here to keep you happy. As for me? I think there’s one slice of pizza left in the fridge–and it’s calling my name.
