I was told late in the day today that I’m needed at work early in the day tomorrow… so this one is going to be a quickie. I’d like to get your opinions on pizza. For instance, what are your favorite toppings? If you could choose three or fewer, which ones would you choose? Cheese is a given, but feel free to go with extra cheese. I like any combination of pepperoni, sausage, bacon, onion, and green peppers. Those are my favorites, and if I had to narrow it down to just three I’d probably go with pepperoni, green peppers and onions. Tomorrow it might be something slightly different. The pizza in the picture looks almost perfect… except for the fungus. What do you have on this? Please tell us about it in the comments.
I never really liked the deep dish, or even the locally renowned “Old Forge style.” It’s almost like a casserole. I just prefer the kind you can get at a regular pizzeria, or at a walk-up NYC-style by-the-slice kinda joint. In the latter case just pepperoni or cheese will do, thank you very much.
We’re lucky to live in an area of the country where there are good-to-great pizza shops every couple of blocks. I’m not kidding, this area is lousy with kick-ass pizza. Sometimes I’m just blown away by how good it is. It feels like we’ve ordered from 25 different pizza joints at my job alone. There’s a place called Pizza Bella and another called Gerry’s that are just fantastic. There’s always good pizza available, wherever you are. But up here… it’s an abundance of riches. I wish I had some right now.
Needless to say, I’ve also enjoyed my share of chain takeout pizzerias. I sometimes opt for a large three-topping pie from Domino’s for lunch. You have to order it online and pick it up, but it’s only $7.98. And Domino’s is pretty damn good these days. They had a reputation for being terrible for many years, but they’ve improved. And it’s difficult to shake a negative opinion of a business. Can you think of any that you originally hated, then came around to liking? In any case, they’re good and not great. Perfect for a quick and cheap lunch. And there’s always half a pizza left over for after work! I haven’t had Pizza Hut in years, but don’t have a negative feeling about them, either. I remember being lukewarm on Papa John’s and Little Caesar’s. I’d take Domino’s over them, unless my memory is faulty. There’s a place called Hungry Howie’s in Myrtle Beach that I always thought was pretty damn good, too. They’re a chain, but I don’t know much else.
What do you have on this subject? Do you have pizza opinions? Please unburden yourself.
And I’ll see you guys again soon.
Have a great day!
