All I Want is a Decent Pizza

by Leann

Deadlines are the most stressful times. I hardly sleep, I worry, I procrastinate, I think of stuff in the shower that I don't write down that would be awesome to include in the latest and all of a sudden I find stuff I should have researched better. That is why this blog will be very short. I am pressed for time and I am a wreck.

What do I want the most during this time--besides a full-time housekeeper and a chef? I want a decent pizza. I could settle for delivery except there is no delivery in our neighborhood. I know! What the heck is wrong with this picture?

Thing is, I haven't had consistently good pizza since we moved from New York decades ago. Real New York pizza with just sauce and whole milk mozzarella. Nothing else. The kind of pizza you can fold in half because the slice is so big. Okay I have tortured myself enough. I recently bookmarked a recipe for New York pizza crust, but until I can dedicate myself to actually cooking a decent meal again, it will have to wait. If you live in the Northeast, have a slice for me! See you on the other side of a finished manuscript!

I live in the northeast and I've never been able to get decent pizza anywhere else. Even when the crust has been OK it just never tastes the same. Although I did have pretty good Sicilian style pizza in Switzerland once.

Leann, I long for New York pizza, too! I've been experimenting with home-made pizza crusts and the results have not been spectacular. At the moment, I buy Paul Newman frozen pizzas because all the profits go to charity and I try to "doctor" them up a bit. But nothing beats New York pizza, I hear ya!

I envy you, Sandy!

Some of the Newman's frozen pizzas have oats in the crust and I am allergic. Sigh. I am allergic to everything.

Pizza fixes everything. Since I doubt I'll ever visit New York, please let me know if you find a great recipe or product that compares.

I live in the Northeast (Schenectady, NY to be exact) and could not imagine living with out our fabulous pizza!! I guess you never think about foods having regional qualities, but they most definitly do. And, since I could live on pizza, I am so glad that is one of our specialties. So I would be more than happy to have a slice for you.

I love NY and NJ pizza! My husband and I buy frozen Amnons NY kosher pizza sometimes. It's not bad. We live in CT and the pizza isn't too bad here.

Sorry, Chicago thin crust pizza is the best. New York pizza is okay but too doughy.
