"I Bet You Don’t Eat Pizza…"

by Sarah on October 30, 2010 · 4 comments

One of my co-workers said to me the other day, “Oh, I bet you don’t eat pizza.”

Wrong.

I love pizza. LOVE LOVE LOVE pizza. I just don’t eat Dominos. Or Pizza Hut. Or anything that is going to make me feel like a literal couch potato of sluggishness.

But when the pizza is on a delicious thin ‘n crispy, or chewy ‘n doughy, handmade crust, and you can actually taste the flavor of each delicious ingredient, and the topping & sauce ratio to cheese is so high that you barely even know there is cheese on it…

Well, then I will eat quite a few pieces.
In fact, at Rebecca‘s birthday dinner at Salvation Pizza last night, I ate three. (One of the above “#3″ featuring eggplant, sundried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts, and two of the “Special Rebecca Request” with artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, spinach, and mushrooms.)
Oh, and then I ate three more pieces partygoers had left on their pizza stands that I proceeded to smuggle home sandwiched in between paper plates. ["You could get a to-go box you know." "Yeah, I could."]

No pizza left behind, people.
Not when it was that good.

So yes. I ate six (and a half, I think) pieces of pizza. Possibly aided in the endeavor by the 1/3 of a carafe of red wine I drank with it.

And aside from the Tums I needed at 2 in the morning, and the strange dream about Hanson* I had last night….I feel really good about it.

*Taylor was there. Ike was there. Zac, too. It was weird.

I love pizza, but I'm like you and prefer the homemade varieties over the take out. Do you ever get annoyed when people assume you don't eat certain things because you are a healthy person? I kinda do :)

Those pizza's look amazing. I think my first experience eating pizza with vegetables on top was in Korea. They seem to just make everything healthier! It had corn on top and it was so amazing.
I love Salvation's thin crust. Rebecca's request sounds like Pizza Nirvana.. wonder what it'd taste like with corn on top :}
