Welcome my friends to another week of Travels in the South. This past weekend, daddy was craving his favorite – pizza. It doesn’t matter what kind or where, daddy loves all kinds and doesn’t discriminate – snorts. Mom/dad went shopping this past weekend a couple of towns over from the Hotel Thompson. After a long day of spending money and daddy lugging all the bags (like a perfect southern gentleman), both were ravished.
So mom saw this darling little pizza shop and thought she would bless daddy cause you know his hard work of (A) pulling out the credit card often this date and (B) lugging said packages everywhere. Let me start by saying that this is *not* a meal that mom/dad would splurge in often because of their new way of eating; however, today was a special date night of sorts.
Mom/dad started with buttered garlic knots. Now there were more buttered garlic knots in the bowl but someone conveniently forgot to take a picture before diving head first into that wonderful dish. Not that I’m pointing hooves mom but it’s so hard to train humans. Those two humans of mine acted like they had never eaten before and the next thing you knew – the dish was empty except for buttery/garlic goodness on the bottom of the bowl.
And of course, mom wouldn’t give that bowl up for all of the money in the world. She told dad they would keep it. Why? So they could swipe their pizza crust up all in that concoction. Yep, it was that good.
Now for the main star. The pizza. Not just any pizza. Dad said it was probably the best pizza he has ever had – and that is saying a lot! Look at all of that cheesy goodness.
This is called the white pizza (one of mom’s favorite pizzas to order anywhere). It has a blend of ricotta, mozzarella, provolone, parmesan cheese and minced garlic. Then they sprinkle MORE fresh parmesan cheese on top before bringing it to the table.
Can you see the cheese dripping everywhere? Okay, maybe this picture of dad eating slice shows you how cheesy and wonderful this pizza was.
