PIZZA DAY!!!

Pizza Day!

Deep Dish… New York Style… White… Plain… Pepperoni… Works… Meat Lovers… Vege… Cheese… NO! Anchovies… Hawaiian…

How do you like your Pizza? Is there a food that creates such a strong feeling of emotion or memory? Do you like thin crust or thick? Extra Cheese or Extra Sauce? So many varieties and flavors. You can have your pizza delivered, dine in or by the slice. Cold leftover pizza. Do you eat your slice front to back or back to front? Do you fold it in half? There are endless possibilities.

Every Friday was pizza day in school. You could smell it in the hall walking to the cafeteria. That was the day that the lines were the longest. Pizza was never used as a flying projectile for a food fight. You never saw those square pieces of crust and cheese being flung in the air like the veal patty. You saw less lunchboxes on pizza day. Then there was summer camp pizza. A greasy gooey mess of 1 pound of cheese on every slice. We used to take a napkin and put it on the pizza to remove the extra oil. Laughing at to how many napkins would be needed. We had contests to see who could eat the most. Who could beat the legendary pizza eaters from Summer’s past.

There was pizza after the game. Late night pizza runs in college. Is pizza not the perfect food? Whats Happening Lower Merion visited 3 of the areas pizzerias to get their take on pizza and pizza day.
