Did this week seem to absolutely drag on for anyone else? I had a pretty low-stress week and I think the downtime actually made the week feel like it went by so slowly. I’m used to work and life being so crazy that on weeks when I have time to do extracurriculars (like watch all four episodes of the new Charlie’s Angels—not recommended, by the way) I feel like time must be grinding to a halt. I’m not sure which I prefer: a crazy week that speeds by or a lax week that ticks on slowly.
Regardless, we’ve made it to Friday, friends! And you know what Friday means, dontcha? Pizzzzzzaaaaa!
One of my favorite things about pizza is that the category can include such a wide variety of tastes, textures and flavors. I had my first slice of New York fold-y pizza this summer (at a stand-up booth, mind you) and I’m not even entirely sure how that can be the same “thing” as Chicago deep dish. Both delicious and incredible, but totally different experiences.
So this week is a nice little departure from last week’s pizza. Last week was heavy, white sauce, full of chicken and greens. This week is red sauce with smoky roasted veggies and dollops of airy ricotta cheese. Night and day, my friends. Still pizza, still delicious, but totally different.
If you had to choose between Chicago deep dish and New York style pizza, which would it be?
I’m a Midwestern girl, so I have to go with deep dish. But it’s a close one.
