Lately I've been putting links to non-Slice pizza reviews in the new(ish) Leftovers link roundups, but something about this photo of a Colony Grill pepperoni pie on Writing With My Mouth Full calls out for its own post to highlight it.
Blogger cia_b spends much of her review dissing pizza in general—to the point that you fear the awesomeness of this photo will outstrip what she has to say about Colony. But at the last minute, she comes around and confirms what seems evident here: that the pizza here rocks.
I have not yet traveled to Stamford for Colony, but this photo makes me want to jump on the train north or take out a Zipcar NOW. Colony is famous for its "hot oil" topping—hot as in "spicy"—which is drizzled all over a pie when you opt for it as a "topping."
You can see the areas where the oil bubbled up and transmogrified the cheese into a pockmarked (and I'm guessing) almost crunchy landscape.
