A food blog without a photo of the food. I know, it seems crazy. However, the point of this piece is merely to explain a bit about my theories in food blogging and especially about pizza.
Pizza is a wide world of culinary interpretation. For the Mr., anything from a hut or chain of any kind is simply unacceptable. I tend to agree most times. We are from New York state and for us, crust is fairly thin, preferably crisp, bubbles are a bonus. Cheese should be stretchy, ooey, gooey, but without a river of orange grease running down our arm when the slice is folded. Sauce is a point where he and I can sometimes differ in opinion; a bit of sweetness is fine, but I feel the crust, sauce and cheese should work in balance and harmony with none being a main focus while he loves to taste and feel plenty of sauce.
In any case, Colandrea's pizza is our benchmark. All other pizzas are judged and compared in relation to the Pizza King.
We recently had take out pizza and when the Mr. walked in the kitchen after a long day at work said, "Oh my, is it my birthday!"
THAT is how special Colandrea's is to us.
The pizza that leaves us all feeling Fed Well and can turn an ordinary day into something fabulous.
