Last month, I resolved that my end-of-the-year vacation would be a pizza vacation. I had intended to eat pizza everyday while I was off from work. I wound up chickening out after just a few of days of it, but I did make those few days count!
While I was there, I tried a plain and a sausage slice.
The two slices and a water were under $5, a decent value. The dough and sauce this time around were pretty good, but the sausage on the sausage slice is really something special, and it’s made in house.
Another day, I shot over to Crispy Basil Pizza to try one of their different types of Buffalo chicken pizza.
But the real crazy pizza meal was my homework meal. I had to comb over the instructions my cousin Bobby and I put together for our upcoming pizza class (now sold out) and make sure they were easy to follow.
I made three different types of pizza that night for just me and Cassie.
The first was one that’ll be part of the class: fig jam, arugula, and proscuitto.
The next was Buffalo chicken with homemade chicken cutlets and some blue cheese crumbles.
The one that I was experimenting with was “carbonara-style” with bacon, eggs, romano cheese, and black pepper.
I left it in a minute too long, and the egg yolks cooked hard. Just a minute less, and it would have been perfect! When it’s only in the super hot oven on the hot stone for 6 or 7 minutes, that extra minute makes a humongous difference! However, the flavors were great.
That was just about it as far as the amount of pizza I ate during the holidays and my vacation, though. But hey, if you gotta eat pizza, YOLO, man.
