What have you been craving for?

For me, Iíve been wanting to eat a pizza, we rarely eat pizza, maybe 2 times a year so when I do get it, itís a big treat for me, last time I can remember eating one was just a little caesars pan pizza back in April or May.

Slow cooked, smoked brisket, spicy bbq sauce to go with it, and pecan infused buttered corn bread.

You can fly from NY to Texas these days. We have airports!

However, real Texas BBQ purists don't sauce their brisket. In some bbq joints, asking for sauce is worse than calling Pork Roll taylor ham.

I’ve got to ask: Why is pizza such a rare occurrence in your household? Moses’ sake, it’s the perfect food! It’s perfect because pizza is 1. Not expensive, mostly, 2. Endlessly adaptable* and, 3. It’s healthy (ok, depending on how it’s made)

The definition of pizza has exponentially widened in a relatively short time. Here’s an article on the history of pizza. It’s short, with some interesting trivia and verifiable facts. Unfortunately, the typos kind of undermine its authority.

The point is, there’s no reason to ration pizza toma couple of times a year! People with medical issues? Every element of a pizza can be modified to match any health/medical issue. And once you get rid of the purist attitude that says pizza is is a specific kind of yeasted dough, topped with tomato sauce, grated Italian cheese, a narrow range of herbs and spices, and a fairly limited list of acceptable toppings, you could probably fashion a different and delicious pizza every night of the week, and never consider the phrase “Pizza? Again? Even if you’re a lactose-intolerant, diabetic vegan with high blood pressure and food allergies, there’s a pizza out there for you!

Oops, back to the topic.

It may be weird, but I crave Jordan almonds. My current dentition can’t handle them.

And yes, I crave a purist’s perfect NY style pizza. Foldable, with perfect ratio of bread to sauce to cheese to toppings. I like pepperoni or mild sausage, mushrooms, black olives and anchovies.

A real, authentic Philadelphia Hoagie. Not enough to buy a plane ticket, but close.

I think itís because Iím Asian and my wife is Thai, sheís only been in the USA for 3 years and her tastes are not Americanized at all, we eat rice 3 meals a day. We live in California and I introduced her to Mexican food, we have some of the best in the country here and she absolutely hates it. Another reason is that I think pizza is a very heavy meal, once I start eating pizza I really canít stop and I always overeat, I can literally feel the added weight after a pizza meal, might be a placebo effect but Iím pretty certain Iím right. I know a lot of guys that eat pizza weekly or even bi-daily and they are not small in stature at all.

To be able to chew... anything! I am having some reconstructive dental work to prepare for partial plates. At the moment I only have two molars that line up (total for both sides) that I can chew with. After tomorrow when I have my permanent crowns on the lower right, I will have a second set of molars I can chew with - one on each side.

I think the first thing I will crave when I can chew is a mushroom swiss burger with fries and gravy!

I hope your wife opens her mind up to more new foods. California Mexican, like Tex-Mex, is not necessarily "Mexican." She might like something like ceviche, or other real Mexican foods that are lighter and fresher tasting.

As for pizza, the original Neapolitan pizzas are lighter and healthier than "American" pizzas. Try to find an authentic Neapolitan pizza restaurant, and try a Pizza Margherita. Very simple, and healthy.
