The Best Thing About Pizza


The best thing about pizza is this: Even when your wife calls you from a foreign country (and you have to take that call—or else) just after you've transferred the oven-ready pie onto your peel right before you notice that the dog has pulled an oil-soaked paper towel out of the trash so that by the time you get back to sliding the thing into the oven you realize that the sauce has soaked through the bottom crust firmly cementing it to the peel so that you're forced to shimmy and scrape it off with a spatula while your head is feeling the effects of a blast of 550° air and your upper arm has just welded itself to the roof of the oven...

...when the misshapen blob finally comes out 10 minutes later, it's still f-ing delicious!

Just thought I'd share that thought with you.
