Heres the thing, I make deep pizzas for a group. One person says there isn't enough meat even though the pizza is covered. Another says the sauce wasn't spicy enough even though it was just right.

Then

Numerous people approach me and say how good the pizzas were. One person said she went back on her heals it was so good. I could go on. And on.

I make these pizzas, they disappear by the slice or whole. Never had a leftover. And still people get sniffy.

Cant please everyone.

No you can't please everyone. But the best compliment is when everyone takes huge helpings and looks disappointed when the dish is all gone. Then you KNOW it was well-liked, even if no one says anything.

CharlieD, what's Swanson's about?

Swanson's are your regular canned soup.

Care to share recipe. I make thin crust pizza, but we have friends who love deep dish one, need good recipe.

I use to laugh at Paul...while I was frying bacon and the smoke alarm would go off he would tell Kevin " when its burning its cooking, when its burnt its done..breakfast is ready lil Bud" ( that is an old Marine corps expression..LOL)

thats what he gets for putting a smoke alarm in the kitchen...Bless his heart.

If they don't spit it out, wipe their tongues with their napkins, swish the wine in their mouths and spit THAT out just to clear the taste from their mouths and then curse at you for 10 minutes, it isn't that bad.

That's the way I look at it, too. Of course, if the dog won't eat it, I just pick up the phone and order pizza.
