Secret Menu Spotlight: Sexton’s Pizza

Jack McLaughlin

Typically, our “Secret Menu Spotlight” segment highlights an item you can grab today at a local eatery, but when really good Columbus pizza is involved, we tend to make exceptions.

And that’s exactly the case with Sexton’s Pizza’s Victorian Village Cheese.

According to Joey Sexton, who co-owns and operates the popular local pizza concept with his brother, Jamey Sexton, the pizzeria is planning to open a unique New York-style slice shop in Victorian Village later this year.


The new store will operate as a carryout pizzeria that’s focused on selling pies by the slice until they’re gone, a unique departure from Sexton’s other locations.

It will be located at 360 W. 3rd Ave., and when it opens later this year, it will do so with a new secret menu item that will be available (at first, at least) only at this location: The Victorian Village Cheese.

According to Joey Sexton, the new slice will feature shredded whole milk mozzarella, fresh, hand-pulled mozzarella, and fresh basil. It gives patrons the opportunity to add local Ezzo pepperoni as well for a small amount more.

The new slice isn’t a reinvention of the wheel, but it will offer a subtle, culinary upgrade on the classic (and sometimes boring) cheese pizza.

According to Joey Sexton, the new secret menu item will initially only be available only at the Victorian Village slice shop, but there’s a chance that it could make its way to other Sexton’s locations, depending on how it’s received. 

No matter the case, there will only be one Victorian Village Cheese.

“There’s a chance we’ll make it available at other locations, but it will be under a different name,” Sexton said.
