I love pizza. It is a fact that is undisputable.
Like everyone, I like going to a place that makes a fantastic pizza. But I love pizza far more than that. I will order pizza at a bar. I will buy pizza at a sporting event. There are even plenty of frozen pizza options out there that are excellent.
I’m not sure there is such a thing as bad pizza. OK, that might be going a little too far.
But as a fan of pizza, nothing makes me happier than to see this:
Take a close look at this small glass container filled with crushed red peppers. Do you see the slots on the top? That is what I am talking about.
Nothing frustrates me more than a pizza place that puts the lid with the small holes in the shape of a star on the jar with the crushed red peppers. Why? Because you can’t get anything out of them. It’s great for parmesean cheese, but not for crushed red peppers.
Yes, I realize that this is a completely ridiculous post. But it is my simple way to applaud those forward-thinking, pizza experts who realize that a customer who gets his or her crushed red peppers on their pizza is going to be a happy customer.
Now you’re talking!
BTW, you’re welcome at mine, I’ll whip one up for you *and* provide crushed red pepper flakes.
