For you, what is good pizza? Like many food, I think often it’s what you’re accustomed to when you’re growing up. Sometimes.
My Idea of Good Pizza
Yes, I looked forward to Fridays when I was in grade school because of pizza day in the cafeteria.
It was only good in comparison to some of the other food at the cafeteria.
Growing up in the North East, I never understood that I was fortunate to have had lots of wonderful pizzerias to choose from. We didn’t often do take-out pizza when I was younger. But as I gained a little bit of independence, I would often go to the local pizza place for a slice or two.
For me, a pizza needs to be just like the feature photo (this one is topped with mushrooms and sausage). Thin-crust with slightly thicker edges is important. I also prefer my crust a bit more well-done and darker. Also, the crust has to have flavor and have a certain toughness to it. Your teeth need to rip off pieces to eat it. Sauce is used sparingly. If sauce is dripping out of a pizza, they use too much. Cheese needs to be cheap mozzarella, but not so cheap as to be greasy. I don’t mind cheese-grease-dripping pizza, but I prefer it to be less greasy if given the option.
Thaddeus is our meal-planner. He’s excellent at it.
Recently, we both wanted pizza. He chose one of those fire-oven pizza places. Artisanal pizza. It was good, but it didn’t quench my craving for pizza. So when he had to take a friend for a colonoscopy, and I was left to my own devices for dinner, I chose a local pizza place. Suffice it to say, I was quite satisfied.

Continuing with strong productivity, I finished the pair of mitts I started last blog entry.
I liked this yarn so much, I finished a second (smaller sized) pair using the same yarn.
This yarn is a bit coarse, so I want to try washing these mitts before I make any more with this yarn. So I started another pair using a different yarn.
Thats quite a bit of progress for me…I’m quite pleased.
