Pizza? Anyone?


Today was a long day at work. Not really. I was busy so the day really flew. The weather is nasty outside. The wind is blowing strong, snow is blowing crazy, and it's extremely cold. I was just happy the rain didn't freeze too bad. So the drive home wasn't as tedious as I anticipated when I left work. On the way home I was trying to decide what to fix the hubby for supper. I hate this routine if I have nothing planned. I ask that typical question and usually get a very minimal response. The hubby hasn't been feeling well, bad headaches, so I decided something quick and simple. Frozen pizza. He LOVES pizza. "Peytza", as the hubby pronounces it. He LOVES it.

This weekend we made a quick trip to Columbia to run a big errand. I promised him I would buy him lunch if he ran this errand with me. We went to a sports store first to look for golf head covers. Don't ask me why, but we did. He announced he was hungry. I asked if he had somewhere in mind. He didn't care he just didn't want mall food, thank goodness. I remembered reading about a bar and grill that served brick oven pizza. It's called the Ski Hi Bar and Grill. He used his new GPS thingy and away we found this place. The pizza was awesome. I have to admit. He loves pizza and his newest found love of food is toasted ravioli. We indulged. It was very, very good. If you are ever in Columbia and don't mind loud, LOUD music this is a good place. Definitely NOT for the prissy sort, but a good place to go for pizza and beer if you will. We just didn't do the beer part.
The hubby loves to search for new places to eat pizza. I'm not always so thrilled. We did find this great place in Lee's Summit which served wood roasted pizza. It took awhile to bake, but boy it WAS THAT good.

The truth be known, the hubby treats me a little nicer when I fix or serve him pizza. I like taco pizza. According to the hubby this is not pizza. You cannot put lettuce on a crust and qualify it as pizza. But truly it's in my top two favs. The top fav is just mushroom and ham or mushroom and tomatoe. That's not pizza either according to the hubby. There can be too many mushrooms. I disagree. There's always more room for mushrooms.

What do you think? Is pizza a single food group in your life like ours? We have it once a week some how some way. Sometimes I just use tortilla shells with a little pizza sauce and a few toppings like ham, pepperoni or MUSHROOMS and call it supper.

So, IS pizza a single food group in your family? What kind is your favorite? Is your hubby a pizza nut like mine? Or, are you a pizza nut like my hubby? Just curious to see the numbers...

We both love pizza, but if I had to say which loved it more, I guess I'd have to say my husband. He's half Italian so he just loves Italian food. We had pizza last night at our favorite local place. Yum-oh! My favorite there? Pepporoni, mushroom and their carmelized onions. To die for! No kidding.

Christmas hugs for you!

Have you had Shakespeare's Pizza in Columbia? If not, you are missing out! We like Ski Hi's, too!

We make it a practice to try a pizza joint wherever we travel. We have had mighty fine pizza every where we have been!

We love pizza and have it at least once a week - our fave is everything on it - sausage, pepperoni, green peppers, mushrooms, onions & black olives.

I'm with your hubby though - lettuce, taco sauce, seafood, fruit, etc is not really pizza.

My hubby and I love pizza. My fav is pineapple and green olives, but my hubby hate's green olives. SO we just get pineapple and extra cheese. Lately we have been getting pineapple and roasted garlic. My husband loves garlic, the more the better. We could eat pizza all the time though..

I love pizza! I could eat it every day. I like it with a round, crispy, turbo, crust. I like just about any topping. My husband really doesn't like it that much.

We both like pizza but Stewart is a veggie so its cheese nad mushroom or peppers for him, me, Ill eat anything on mine as long as its spicy!! We dont go out for it, i buy the base and add the toppings myself, onetime i did a really stupid thing, I made Stewarts one first and put it into cook then I got mine ready, only I forgot to take off that polyplastic tray it sits on, and i shoved it into the oven, while later i could smell something funny, melted plastic all over the oven, not nice and no pizza for me! Had a bit of cheese on toast instead... I pay more attention now LOL...X
