I'm quite a tardy man with the scribing of this post. Alas, I am a busy one these days.
But tardy as it might be, it is now upon us.
Read it for sure, enjoy it I hope
I really am having a tough time figuring out where to start this one. The day was amazing, the surprise was awesome, the pizza was more than delicious. I guess we'll start there.
Father's Day, 2013
My daughters son in-law came over to spend some time with me in the afternoon and share a meal. I was told none of the details, not that it was presented as a surprise, I was just told not to ask, that everything was taken care of, chill, enjoy the company, food would happen when it happened. So we chatted, opened cards, and I was getting hungry, ready to eat.
The next thing I know a dude rolled to the door of my apartment with 3 pizza boxes and a big smile
You've probably already picked up on two things.
One, this guy kicks ass.
Two, these photos are going to suck.
I simply wasn't prepared, didn't know that this was going to go down. I grabbed my phone and shot what I could, and I missed a lot. So enjoy this half-assed post and try to glean what you can from it, knowing that this was some of the best pizza I have ever eaten, anywhere, anyhow.
it isn't the greatest and best pizza in the world, just a Tribute
Already this is great. Jack Black quote???? Hell to the yes!
This guy, I think his name is Matthew, but I'm not sure, loves pizza. Everything about pizza. There is no restaurant, no way to go and enjoy it when you want. He performs "pop-up" events and you can also order through his website, but not at the moment you want the pie. This is special event pizza, planning ahead pizza, days in advance, from what I gather. All I know is the dude rolled in with pizzas he made in a commercial kitchen in North Park and finished them in my kitchen. They were already cooked, he just finished them with olive oil, parmesan cheese, etc., whatever.
Now, sit back and enjoy the terribly blurry photos and no explanation of the toppings
Lame, I know, what can I say?
Three pies. From near to far, a margherita type, then an arugula and white type, then a hard salami thicker rectangle type,
(this one was the favorite. All were super delicious, this one was just a bit more wowzer)
awkward photo, sorry dude
And then, like a ninja, he was gone
I MISS YOU (and your pie) PIZZA DUDE!!!!!!!!!!!!! COME BACK SOON!!!!!!
I love this guy, his deal, his pizza. I want to eat it every day. The crust was sent from heaven. A pure work of art. Soft on the inside and perfectly crisp on the outside, and not too much of either. Simply perfect. A master craftsman.
