There are some foods that you crave as soon as you are done eating them. When you think of them, you always let out a little sigh. You want them often and you think of them when you least expect it. You constantly wish you could make it yourself, but it is just not in your skill set. You have to patiently wait until the right time comes and you are invited to partake in them, or you make time to go to that restaurant that holds these wonderful items.
I am sure I have brought unique items to each of your minds, and that was kind of the point. The item we crave and love and dream about is different for each of us. For me, it has changed over the last few years. It brings me sadness to think that in the past my favorite food items came out of my father's restaurant in Columbia, Maryland. The reason this makes me sad, is because I live so far away. We had a pizza on our original menu that I will never forget! The menu has changed multiple times over the past few years, and it will never again return, but the truffle oil drizzle was only the beginning of it's perfection.
Is this post making you hungry? Making you wish you could walk away from your computer and get your favorite foods? Well, I am sorry for doing that to you, but I feel as though I have adequately set the stage for the joy that Bill's dad's caesar salad pizza brings my heart. It is so delicious I can barely stand to write about it knowing we won't have another pizza party for awhile. He make his dough from scratch and has such a science to the process. I cannot get enough of it. I can literally make myself sick eating piece after piece.
I believe this to be a high compliment in life. When people can't stop eating your food and won't stop telling you how wonderful it is. I aim to be a cook like that... one day!
To the original Bill Rogers, thank you for sharing this treat with me two years ago. I am so happy to have been truly initiated into your family and to have finally gotten to help with pizza night this last time around. I look forward to many more to come!
