Football Counter-Programming 2022: Week 6

I finally had some Di Carlo's Ohio Valley style pizza this week. And it was pretty good. Not mind-blowing or anything. But much more enjoyable than I thought it was going to be.

Don't know what I'm talking about? This (admittedly a bit out-of-date) article can help you.

What is my favorite type of pizza? I grew up eating Pizza Hut, so I still tend to gravitate to the supreme-style pizzas that are heavy on the toppings, with a mixture of pepperoni, sausage, and vegetables. If I am paring down my meat topping choices to only one, I definitely always lean toward sausage as the dominant flavor.

Am I a thick or thin crust guy? I'm easy. I like both. And I won't say no to Chicago-style deep dish but it is not my preferred variety. I like New York style, but I'm not going to fight anybody about it either. Mostly I like that NY-style comes in an extra large box and it connects to my media-fueled memories of pizza consumption on TV and in movies.

Columbus-style tavern cut pizza is good and I like it. It did take me some time to get used to it however.

In general, hey . . . I like pizza. No matter what. It's a great food that is endlessly adjustable. But it always tastes good to me.

And that's about it (at least for now).

Did I distract you from watching football today?

Or did your brain's connections between football and pizza cause an undesired impulse to make you watch inevitably?

Or does the image of sad pizza forever and always turn you off from ever watching college football again?

Until next week . . . try a new pizza topping that you've never tried before. Because it is more likely that you will try something new an unexpected in the pizza world than it is likely that your alma mater is going to win big against their inter conference rivals.
