Pizza #10 - Two Boots Pizzeria
So clearly I’ve reached that point where now that I’ve been doing this blogging thing for a few months it seems like just SO MUCH WORK to sit down and actually write one. This is ridiculous and will not continue. It’s rude of me to leave you unknowing of my pizza journey and for this, I deeply apologize.
I have not stopped eating pizza by any means. In fact, now I’ve had a couple pizzas from the #pizzalist that I’m not blogging about yet because I didn’t take pictures. Really, I just look for any reason for repeat pizzas. IT’S AN ADDICTION, PEOPLE*. Back to business.
I’ve heard for years that Two Boots Pizza is delicious and fancy. In fact, they claim to have been pizza pioneers since 1987**. Well, the rumors were true. In fact, I’m awarding Two Boots the #BestCrust award thus far. This is quite an accomplishment, as I’m someone who is picky about my crusts. The majority of the time the crust is simply a vehicle for toppings, but this was a crust I looked forward to, I savored, I gently crunched in my mouth, savoring each mouth-watering doughy moment. So, there’s that.
I need to find an apartment in this beautiful pizza community.
I love gimmicks***, so the fact that they use silly names for their interestingly-topped pizzas is of course a draw for me. My pal Rob and I enjoyed The Dude (cajun cheeseburger pie with tasso, andouille, ground beef, cheddar and mozzarella), and the Newman (sopressata and sweet Italian sausage on a white pie). Let me go ahead and spoil the ending for you-
THEY WERE BOTH SUPER DELICIOUS. It led to a Sophie’s Choice type conundrum- which do I eat first? Which flavor do I want to finish on? How do I craft the perfect taste journey when I have two distinct yet equally delicious flavor sensations?? I WANT TO STUFF THEM BOTH IN MY MOUTH AT THE SAME TIME SO NO PIZZA FEELS LEFT OUT.
Ultimately, The Newman was my fave of the two (sucker for a white pie), but the Dude was also fantastic (and less “cheeseburgery” than you’d expect with a cheeseburger pizza, but in a good way).
The Dude abides… in my belly.
Two kinds of pizzas
Each one better than the last
This one’s best… no this!
The Dude, The Newman
Put on your Two Boots… right, left
Walk into my mouth
Don’t leave me, pizza. Please, never leave me.
