So have we reached the point yet where every single article listed on the food tab is an advertisement? Or is it only the majority of them?

Hey, a woman's gotta feed her family. Sh*tty pizza, apparently.

Papa John's, for when you don't feel like dressing up to go to Sbarro's.

Bacon is the worst topping on pizza. Yeah I said it. 90% of the time it's gonna be bacon bits. If it actually is real bacon, it's a waste of real bacon. It adds no value to pizza.

Pizza is almost always too greasy anyways for me.  you're going to add piles of bacon to the equation?  I feel like you'd have to wear a trash bag over your shirt while eating this.

We're still Pavlov-doggin' bacon? Isn't that trope kinda old now?

You are not only wrong, but painfully wrong. I don't know where you go, but it shouldn't have 'TM' next to the place's name. My go to is bacon and garlic. Real shredded bacon and plenty of chopped garlic. It just works. The only thing is, it doesn't really taste that great cold so you have to warm it in the oven the next day. That aside, I just figured out what to get for the weekend.

RIP The AV Club. You used to be cool, now you just pass along press releases and rave reviews for whatever Marvel junk is released each week.

"Julienne cut Canadian bacon"  is just salad bar style ham and it's gross.

Yeah still won't get Papa Johns. I kinda like Mod Pizza. Personalized single serve pizzas as many toppings as you like. I go Sausage, Ham, and Bacon. I call it a Pork-a-palooza. Add onions, mushrooms and peppers. Yummy.

100% this. I've never had pizza with bacon where I didn't think, "It would have been better without the bacon."

It's reversed. Shiaty pizza is always better cold, just like shiatty beer. The cold numbs the tastes buds so you can't taste how shiatty it is. On the flip side you can't taste how good the pizza actually is if it is cold.

Good pizza is better hot. Good pizza properly retreated slowly in a skillet on the stove is better than the same pizza cold or shiatty pizza in any state.

Insert like Skywalker stating you are wrong with every word.

With cold pizza, the toppings don't fall off as you chomp on the pizza in the way back from the fridge to the couch or wherever. I bet you eat pizza with a fork.

yup. Personal pizzas. Thin crust. Pick your sauce and toppings. Cook in Stone oven. Very good. Done in about 5 minutes.
 
2021-10-19 12:52:16 PM  
Bacon on pizza? Sure, why not! Once in awhile I'll make a BBQ sauce based pie w/bacon, and maybe some shredded pork or chicken.

It's not traditional pie, but it's good. A garlic/olive oil base with bacon and mushroom (I've gone so far as to use morels I'd recently foraged)? Yes, please.

I don't think it's officially open yet. Can you request an extra minute or two in the oven?

2021-10-19 1:01:46 PM  
I can imagine Papa John's with bacon bits or whatever being nasty, but I make Neapolitan style pies in my pizza oven with full applewood-smoked strips of bacon, and it is delicious.

No matter how good the pizza, if toppings fall on the floor, it is more difficult to eat and much less savory.

Food blogs and recipe sites are horrible too. Just the other day I was making a Libby's 100% pure pumpkin pie. Using my new pie pan from Amazon. Scrolling though the endless ads and auto play videos, when I realized I needed nutmeg, so I had to run to Target...
