Pizza Is...


napkins and greaseThe slap of the dough on the table
More than the words on a label
Tomato sauce, cheese
Napkins and grease
A whole pie or more if you're able

the crackle of wood in the ovenThe crackle of wood in the oven
Worth all the pushin' and shovin
A peel and a stone
A craft you must hone
A subject of awe and of lovin'

the fiery glowHydration, percentages, yeast
A snack or a meal or a feast
To stay or to go
The fiery glow
Of the fuel in a coal-burning beast

A great marinara
Soppressata and pepperoni

the last piece that's left on the trayDi Fara, Bianco, and Ray's
The last piece that's left on the tray
Who's gonna take it?
Me! I just ate it!
(It was going to waste anyway!)

Bloggers with notes and recorders
Tense topping debates
Best divided by eight
An obsession that crosses all borders.
