An average human being needs at most two slices of the doughy pie to feel satiated...right? And if he/she could have two different toppings or sets of toppings on both he/she would attain the pizza equivalent of LSD induced nirvana...that would be a good approximation of the truth, right? Then why can't I experience pizza bliss anywhere around here? What is it about the pizza-by-the-slice concept that it seems comprehensible only to some guys in New England? U
Then there is the price. Consider this - a medium sized pizza with decent toppings is 25 $ + delivery. However if you had starving hordes to feed and provided the said hordes had de-sensitised taste buds you could order two large one topping pizza's for 15 bucks (and some places will throw in a free coke too)...go figure! And what may I ask is the deal with designer pizza's? The last time I checked pizza was still not in the gourmet category. I don't care on which half you put the jalapenos or in which quadrant you put the chicken(Pizza Hut are you listening?) just give me two slices of pizza topped with everything (read onions, mushrooms, pineapples, chicken, peppers, jalapenos, olives for starters) and a soda for under 10$. Is that too much to ask for?
U: The internet tells me its more of a Southern concept.
PS: This rant was inspired by half an hour of online comparison shopping for pizza (with and without coupons) this weekend. In the end we settled for frozen stuff and till Antonio's comes to town I shall get my pizza from the Trader Joes freezer. The prices quoted are approximate by the way.
