Crust is undoubtedly the most polarizing part of a slice of pizza.
Some people – the "monsters", as I call them, refuse to nibble in the plain, a pasty goodness, while I really like that stuff. I'm not above eating a friend's crust if they do not want it. I am this guy.
But even I do not know what an Italian restaurant in New Jersey is.
Try this: you'll soon be able to order a pizza crust as a side dish at Villa Italian Kitchen in Morristown.
You read correctly. Just the crust.
"We are huge pizza pizza fans at Villa Italian Kitchen," said Mimi Wunderlich, a spokesperson for Villa Italian Kitchen in a press release announcing the menu. We know that crust is the favorite part of pizza. seemed only to be the perfect idea. "
The crusted side dish will be added to the menu on July 18th and will cost $ 2.75.
So … we have questions.
Is the crust really The favorite part of each pizza? In my opinion, cheese is the most popular element, followed by the sauce. The crust is excellent and all, but I can not help but think that just eating crust would be incredibly frustrating excitement. I would like at least some marinara sauce to dip it – which you would not need if you had, you know, a whole slice of pizza.
And where do they just get the crust to sell? Do they cut normal pizzas? Do they sell crustless pizzas, or is there just a bunch of naked pizzas running somewhere in search of their crusts (try to get rid of this image)?
"The crusts are prepared with fresh, homemade dough placed in the outline of the famous Italian Villa Italian Pizza," a spokesman for Villa Italian Kitchen. "A touch of sauce and cheese are then delicately placed around the crust to create an authentic crust experience"
Delicately placed, huh? OK then.
Villa Italian Kitchen reported receiving "a record number of consumer inquiries" about their crust and what makes it so good. I call shenanigans. This is a chain located at Newark International Airport and several New Jersey shopping centers – it's not exactly Razza in Jersey City or Santillo in Elizabeth. I recognize that I have never eaten pizza, but the next big dough I get from a pizza chain will be the first.
Moreover, is not there a bread stick of different shape?
This whole situation reminds me of the episode "Seinfeld," where Elaine opens a muffin shop that sells only muffins and throws away the funds. Muffins are definitely the star of pastry, but it looks like they only sell the bottom of the muffins.
One of my big slogans is "do not babble anyone else," but I'm a little suspect. Because the pizza crust is good. But you know what better?
A slice of pizza.
