Take-out Pizza, The Great American Phone Call!
As all you veteran readers of my blog know, Friday night is Pizza Nite at the Buffalo household. Well, today was Thursday and my wife and I had a mutual, simultaneous, not-to-be-denied urge for a pizza NOW! As laziness, poor planning, and a large dose of apathy all hit us at once, we made The Call. We are blessed with a multitude of good pizza places within 2 miles of our home that will deliver a pizza quickly to our doorstep! The one that gets The Call 90% of the time is Florentines. Over the years, they have gotten to know us (and our various Airedales!)and if the new kid on the phone says the wait is 40 minutes, the guy at the oven sees our name and it's here in 20! After jumping in and out of my car in 35F weather making sales calls all day (with a sore foot!), somebody bringing me supper sounded like a great plan. I have never gotten a bad pizza from these guys (is there such a thing as bad pizza?) and this one hit the spot. The size pizza we order is like my kids are still at home, so leftovers are a given!
OK, here's your assignment: What's the name of the best pizza place that you go to regularly? Give location if you want. And: What size do you order, and what toppings?
P.S. Tomorrow is the 30th anniversary of me becoming a father for the first time! It's all about me, isn't it? Happy Birthday to my son, Rich!!!!!
