Pizza in the wind

The other morning I was getting into my car and noticed that the wind blew some pizza into my yard from my neighbors trash can.  Honest to God.. my first thoughts were:

1. Who the hell throws away pizza?

2. I wonder what toppings that slice has on it?

3. Hey.. I know exactly where they Bought that pie!

Yeah, I know some people would call my pizza obsessed mind a problem, but heck.. I call it a gift!

Still Alive and Eating Pizza!

Wow.. I can hardly believe it's been eight months since I've posted here.  I have been active on Instagram, but I'm afraid new content here has suffered in the meantime. 

Up until now my posts have focused largely on Northern Colorado, but soon they will be dedicated to Florida pizza!  Which helps to explain the main reason for my time being capitalized.  Yes.. a cross country move is in my very near future, and I'm super excited to see what kind of life it breathes into the blog and social media!  Stay tuned my friends. It should be fun!

I feel like Grilling... Pizza! Screamin' Sicilian's 'Holy Pepperoni' pizza review

Last Sunday I decided to grill up dinner, so as not to heat up the house on a fine 96 degree summer day.  However, the only thing I craved that late afternoon was pizza.

Enter Screamin' Sicilian's Holy Pepperoni pizza. A beautifully made pie that sports spicy, rough cut, thick pepperoni, heaping piles of shredded whole milk mozzarella straight from the fine state of Wisconsin, and a tongue-popping tomato sauce crafted from the finest tomatoes available.  All of it is set atop a stone-baked, artisan crust, that acts as the perfect vessel to deliver all of this goodness straight to your pizza piehole.
As far as frozen pie goes..
my rating is 5 out of 5 slices

First off, all of the Screamin' Sicilian pizzas are a sight to behold cooked or uncooked.  I love the cutaway mouth on the front of the box that lets you peek at what you're actually buying.  It's what coerced me into buying my very first Screamin' Sicilian pie not too long ago!

I have a decent gas grill that holds a consistent temperature pretty well. I got the grill up to 425 degrees, placed the pie over indirect heat, and checked it at 15 minutes.  It ended up taking around 17 minutes to cook it the way I wanted.

As you can see, the artisan crust looked beautiful, and actually attained a nice char that reminded me somewhat of a pie pulled from a brick or wood fired oven.

The pizza looked great and tasted incredible.  I wasn't sure at first about the rough cut pepperoni, but once I sunk my teeth into a slice, I realized I wasn't missing a thing.  The pepperoni was thick, spicy, and you could definitely tell a difference between this uncured pepperoni versus your traditional pepperoni.

All in all it was a great tasting pie, and I'll definitely be grilling up more Screamin' Sicilian pizzas outside very soon.  If you've never cooked a pizza on the grill, I highly recommend it, and Screamin' Sicilian is an incredibly fine pizza to cut your teeth on!

I feel like a Pizza... BURGER! Old Chicago 'Pizza Burger' Review

For a limited time, Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom is offering a one pound pizza burger on their 40th Anniversary menu.  I was more than intrigued when I first heard about it, and finally got a chance to give it a try this week.

Old Chicago's Pizza Burger really is a sight to behold, and I must admit that my pictures don't do it proper justice.  The burger sports a one pound hamburger patty, sandwiched between two pub pizzas that are topped with Italian sausage and pepperoni.  Oh yeah, this behemoth is also served with sides of onion rings, fries, and ranch dressing.

My burger was cooked perfectly, with the center right on the verge of turning from pink to light brown.  The outside of the patty had a nicely seasoned and crispy char to it.  No other condiments are added to the burger, apart from a nice layer of pizza sauce on the bottom "pub pizza bun".

This pizza burger was incredible, and had neither too much or too little of any one ingredient.  The proportions were spot on as well.  The pub pizza buns held up perfectly, and worked nicely with the massive hamburger patty.   A bit on the pricey side at $19.76, the burger was still worth every penny, and is totally big enough to split with someone.

I love burgers, and I'm of course a pizza addict, so this wild creation was right up my alley.  If you are adventurous enough to give it a try, get to your nearest Old Chicago Pizza and Taproom soon, as it's not going to be around for very long.

Review - Right Coast Pizza in Greeley Colorado

Right Coast Pizza
811 8th Street
Greeley Colorado
(970) 352-9129

When it comes to New Jersey style pizza, I believe Right Coast is the only pizzeria in the town of Greeley (and the surrounding areas for that matter) that touts such a style.  As you can see, Right Coast's Jersey pie looks very similar to New York Style pizza, maybe with a thinner hand tossed crust.

 As far as Jersey style pie goes..
my rating is 4 out of 5 slices

What you get with this type of pizza, is a very simple and wonderful tasting pie. A very simple sauce, super thin but not crispy hand tossed crust with just the right amount of char, and nice tasty cheese that's not piled on too heavy.

Right Coast always has a nice selection of beers on tap, and on this particular scorcher of a summer day, I opted for a New Belgium Watermelon Lime lager.

"Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication" - Leonardo DaVinci

I love that quote.  It applies to so many different aspects of life, but especially rings true with pizza.  And hey.. DaVinci was an Italian cat, so he may have even been talking about Pizza!  

Whenever I am trying out a pizzeria for the first time, I order at least one cheese slice.  This is the quickest way to find out if a pizzeria is worth its salt.  Plain and simple, if you can't even produce a good cheese slice, you won't be getting anymore of my business.  When a cheese slice physically moves you in some way, whether it's making you close your eyes, relax your upper body, or even give an audible "Mmmmmm", you know you've found a great pizzeria. 

Right Coast Pizza is located right next door to my favorite comic book store "The Nerd Store".  More often than not, I will stop by the Nerd Store to pick up a few comics for my son and I, and will then pop over next door for a light lunch.

As of the time I hit publish on this article, Right Coast currently has these two standing lunch specials:

  • Two Slices and a Drink for 6.99
  • One Slice, a Salad and Drink 6.99

Their lunch special ends at 4 pm daily. All prices above are for slices with one topping, feel free to add as many as you’d like, but it will cost extra. Salad included is their house side, drink special is for soft drinks only.

A side note/tip
As you are probably well aware, craft beer can sometimes get pretty pricey.  That being said, Right Coast currently has a deal running, where you can get $2.00 off of your beer if you show them you are following them on Instagram.

I really dig Right Coast.  Great pizza and beer, in a warm and hip atmosphere.  If they don't change a thing, I will continue to be a patron for years to come.
