Pizza?! MIH, you need a good-cooking young man like myself to come over to your place. I'm home alone for three weeks now and I ordered pizza only once. :approve:
What's your specialty?

It wasn't a real flight but I guess it would probably be to New York.

Oh, I've got lots of them, I just don't know their english names. :tongue:

Well, yesterday I prepared a tomato sauce with tuna fish and pasta, for example. Simple and tasty.

Why am I always late?:cry: You know it's been for about 1 year since the last time I ate pizza and by reading your thread I suddenly miss that alot:tongue2:
(because I got sick so badly for 2 days, I quit eating pizza for such a long time. I know poor pizza wasnt the reason of my sickness but anyway I didn't feel like eating it anyway:wink:)
There once was a young woman named Lisa,
Who fell ill while eating a pizza,
Though the dish was not to blame,
She was conditioned just the same,
Now pepperoni makes her quite ill-at-ease-a.

:biggrin:

But, once the car situation is settled, I'll be an easy 15 minute drive from my office. So I should have an extra 2+ hours in the day. I can go looking for pizza! (Or just drive back to the city for it.)
Congratulations! That should be a significant quality of life improvement. For me, the memories of sitting in traffic for hours every day is nothing but a bad dream now.

As for pizza, I like everything but anchovies with a thin, crap, cracker crust please. :biggrin:

Sounds good! I make my pizzas on flour tortillas and cook them on a perforated aluminum pizza pan, so they get crispy. I used to throw my own pizza crusts, but one day I got lazy and decided to try using tortillas. They are so good, I never went back to fresh-dough crusts.

Oh, missed that. Yeah, hold the crap AND the anchovies. Pretty much anything else in the fridge is fair game, though. One of my favorite topping combinations is sauerkraut and hot sausage with minced garlic and onions.

I don't know if I can get into the idea of some things on a pizza, say like, avocado... :yuck:

This is one of those mexican pizzas though, so it might work better than I think.

My fave pizza is the tandoori chicken and mango topped pizza from California Pizza Kitchen. Looks something like this..

True dat! I don't think I've ever had a bad meal there. Although, their pizzas far outshine their pasta offerings.

MIH, we have avocado in the house so infrequently that it would never end up on a pizza, though I have been known to top pizzas with crushed pinapple, onions and ham. Generally, we have fresh green peppers and onions for toppings with hot sausage or hamburg, though if there's cooked bacon or BBQ'd pork spare ribs in the fridge, they just might sneak into the mix. If you haven't tried sauerkraut, onion, and hot sausage, you should give it a shot. Lots of minced garlic is OK with that mix, too, if you don't have any imminent social engagements. My wife likes LOTS of garlic.

Can you grow an avocado tree where you are? My neighbor has a huge avocado tree and a bunch of the fruits are hanging over the fence on my side. I grab one every once in a while. The only problem is that they never taste as good as supermarket avvies. They tend to be smaller and harder.

I don't think avocados they would grow up here. Our primary crops are icicles, lumbago, and chilblains. Occasionally, we see some avocations developing during the long winters, but the fruits of those labors often end up on the landfill or in "garage" sales. (They always forget the "b"!)

BTW, there is no conceivable recipe, in which avocado might be combined with moose tenderloin, smoked Atlantic salmon, fiddleheads, venison, or sauteed brook trout, so there's really no need for that particular alligator variant up here anyway. Oh, sure, there's the odd party-attendee that thinks everybody ought to swoon over her whack-a-mole dip, but they usually succumb to the coffee-brandy/milk drinks early in the party and wake up back home with lots of green paste in a bowl.

Tip: The old Evinrude LightTwin 3's are killer outboards that will idle/troll all day without fouling a plug, and they are easy to handle and lug to a pond. Easy on fuel, and easy to rebuild. (Make a Maine bride out of you yet, MIH!)

I believe that is described in Domino's Law. There is a relationship between the thin-ness of a semi-triangular pizza crust and the amount of crap it will hold without sagging when leveled between thumb and forefingers.

Thanks - that's a great suggestion for my dowry. I understand that model is pretty hard to come by, though. I guess if I could get my hands on one, that would make me quite a catch. :)

Very tough to find in decent condition. That and a lightweight aluminum boat (maybe a Grumman sport canoe) would vault you to the top of the most-marriageable list, for sure. :rofl:
