I don’t like watching the news. I do realize that, as a public relations professional, I should be interested in the news. And I am. When it involves my company or our industry.
But the local news? Not my favorite.
However, I didn’t turn the TV off fast enough when Castle was over, and I caught the first story on the nightly news.
Apparently, a Pizza Hut delivery man was carjacked and kidnapped Monday night.
What? Have you ever wanted pizza that bad? I mean, wow. I love pizza. And I’m sure I’ve craved it at times. But those are some pretty extreme measures. (Yes, I realize it’s possible that there’s more to this story than the delivery of a large one-topping. But just go with it, will you?)
Thanks to this brave delivery man and the fact that his story was the most newsworthy thing going on tonight, I now have a blog topic. That’s right. Here are my top ten favorite pizzas.
- Pizza Hut pepperoni stuffed crust (I know. Okay? I know.)
- Pizza Hut hamburger hand-tossed crust (Boring? Maybe. Or delicious? Oh, yeahhhh.)
- Papa John’s supreme when eaten with our friends, Zac and Mandy
- Totino’s Combination Party Pizza (This one’s a throwback to college…when have I even eaten one of these? I mean, half of one. Nope. One.)
- Jack’s frozen pepperoni pizza (with extra mozzarella, just to up the health factor)
- Homemade pizza, with hamburger, onion and green pepper
- Minsky’s combo pizza without sausage
- Godfather’s humble pie, substitute beef for sausage (What can I say, we don’t do sausage!)
- Shakespeare’s pizza with beef, pepperoni, onion, green pepper and mushroom
- Waldo Pizza – everything I’ve ever eaten there.
N0w I’d like to know: What’s your favorite pizza?

My aunt was always worried something like that might happen to me when I delivered pizzas. She must've forgotten I was doing it in KIRKSVILLE. Now, KC, I might expect. I just wouldn't expect it to be the top story though… ;)
I've never heard of Waldo's or Minsky's, which probably means I need to try them in KC sometime. ;) My favorites are gourmet chicken garlic from Papa Murphy's, spinach/artichoke pizza from Chip's (local restaurant), Papa John's, Uno's (love the crust), and Pizza Hut. For frozen, I like Freschetta, DiGiorno (but not the plain cheese so much), and Red Baron (I think) cheese (and then I add my own toppings usually). I think that's it. :) (Who am I kidding? I obviously love pizza!;)
Mmmmm……..i'm SO glad i read this in the morning and not at night when i'd then be craving pizza and would end up ordering some for dinner and therefore putting another delivery person in jeopardy!
but YUMM!!! stuffed crust pizza is probably my #1. it's a good thing ben doesn't like it otherwise i'd probably eat it WAY too much!
and then there's pan pizza…. Mmmmm.
i LOVE chicken pizza. and yep, no sausage here. ick.
and my favorite party pizza is canadian bacon. we STILL eat those! (but hey, we can blame it on the fact that we have kids!)
ok. so maybe i am craving pizza now…!
I used to love a good Papa John's pizza… mmm mmm good!!
Papa John's, light sauce, pepperoni and green peppers. Or Cici's white pizza with spinach. Or… The Best Pizza in the World.
I hate local news too…
but I can't believe someone would hijack a pizza deliverer.. er…er…
Godfathers' – now that's a place I haven't been to in a LONG time! YUM!
We'll be having a $5 Little Caesar's pizza with breadsticks tonight…
Jason used to deliver pizzas and he has some crazy stories. But, I tell you- thankfully nothing like this.
Your pizza list made me hungry! Thanks a LOT!
We usually go with DiGiorno 3 meat (always stocked in the freezer from Sam's) or the LIttle Caesar's across the street. And some breadsticks, cause if you're splurgin might as well do it right.
I can't exactly explain it, but reading this sent me into fits of giggles. My coworkers are staring. I'm blushing.
Anyway, my fav pizza is sausage, from practically anywhere. If it has sausage I will eat it. I must be your evil twin.
1) Domino's hand-tossed sausage & green pepper (that really is to up the health factor :))
2) Pizza Hut's hand-tossed cheese lovers with sausage and onion
3) Giordano's stuffed crust sausage
4) Tony's frozen sausage
5) Bacci's sausage
Oh goodness, I better end this and go eat…..
oooo, what a great question! I have to agree with the Papa John's fans – I love it and my favorite part is the sweet sauce on the pizza and garlic dipping sauce for the crust! Believe it or not (and this is not meant to be a shameless plug) but a while ago I wrote a whole post about how pizza has defined our cross-cultural marriage. I kid you not! http://thegypsymama.com/2009/08/03/pizza-is-my-homeboy/
My absolute favorite pizza is my homemade pizza, usually with chicken and broccoli as toppings. But I also love pineapple and ham (although Hubby does not!). In a pinch, I'd much rather have DiGiorno's than anything from the delivery places.
I never watch the news either. I read the paper and the internet, but can't seem to muster enough energy to watch the news. My favorite pizza? If I had to choose just ONE, that I can get (not from a far away place, like where I grew up or in Italy!) it would probably be Round Table pepperoni, olives and shrooms. Oh, and P.S. I hate you, now I want pizza!
I love pizza. It is my all time favorite food. I like supreme from Pizza Hut even though I pick off most of the meat. :)
When I am with my sister we pretty much always get Dominonos. I like the garlic butter at Papa's Johns. Ahh Pizza.
Our poor delivery guys were getting robbed all the time in college, I guess they were easy marks for quick cash. It was the most dangerous job in town for awhile!
Speaking of college, we had some great pizza there! And it was cheap! My brother used to call the pizza places, tell them how much he wanted to pay and a pizza for that price would show up at his door in 30 minutes or less. Hooray for capitalism!
Yummmm.I think I could do this same list. I ADORE pizza. Even those rectangle pizzas we had in the elementary school cafeteria.
One of my faves if from a little pizza place in Florida called, The Upper Crust. Or maybe I just liked the name of the pizza place.
Now I want pizza for dinner.
