Are You a Pizza Purist?
I didn’t care much for pizza when I was younger – I was that annoying kid at birthday parties who had to have a PB&J made just for me. But it’s hard to get away with not liking pizza forever – especially in a city of 9 million pizza-eaters. You will never have a lasting relationship. You will never hold down a job. And you will definitely never get invited to Grimaldi’s with Beyonce and Jay-Z.
So as I’ve gotten older, I’ve acquired a taste for a really good slice of cheese pizza. No extra junk on top – I’m a pizza purist. And as I read Christopher Hudspeth’s hilarious post, “Loving Cheese Pizza Isn’t A Choice, So Stop Criticizing Me For It,” I realized I’m not alone. Call me a philistine, but what’s with all the toppings. You’re obviously compensating for something.
Read the full post – you won’t regret it. My favorite line:
“As a young boy watching Home Alone, I always felt like Kevin McCallister was my spirit animal because his love for Christmas, fear of basements and most importantly, his appreciation for the exclusive rights to a cheese pizza.”
Amen, brother. (Also, I’d forgotten how cute Macauley Culkin was.)
What’s your favorite pizza?
