Foods We Can't Live Without #3

Have you ever had the discussion about the foods you would want if you were stranded on a desert island or if you could only have one or two foods what foods would it be? For me one of them would be pizza. Is there a pattern here in "Foods We Can't Live Without"? Potatoes, Chocolate, Pizza...no items from the four food groups here. Although, they are now saying dark chocolate is good for you, especially as you age. Thank goodness there's something I really love that is good for me. Okay, I know, in moderation!

Pizza made it's first appearance in the United States in the late 19th Century. Pizza, as we know it today, originated in the Midwest. In 1943, Pizzaria Uno originated in Chicago and the original pizza delivery company Dominos, in Detroit in 1960.


My first memory of eating pizza out was at one of the early pizza chains, Shakey's. It was an occasional Friday night treat to go to Shakey's. I remember watching them make the pizzas and singing along with the player piano.

Everyone has their favorite type of pizza, deep dish, thin crust, thick crust, lots of sauce, a little sauce , lots of cheese and so on. Crust, it's all about the crust for me, no thin crust pizza for me.

What's your favorite kind of pizza?
