Live Action Quick Tips
Did you know….
The word “pizza” is thought to have come from the Latin word pinsa, meaning flatbread (although there is much debate about the origin of the word).
A legend suggests that Roman soldiers gained a taste for Jewish Matzoth while stationed in Roman occupied Palestine and developed a similar food after returning home. However a recent archeological discovery has found a preserved Bronze Age pizza in the Veneto region. By the Middle Ages, these early pizzas started to take on a more modern look and taste. The peasantry of the time used what few ingredients they could get their hands on to produce the modern pizza dough and topped it with olive oil and herbs. The introduction of the Indian Water Buffalo gave pizza another dimension with the production of mozzarella cheese. Even today, the use of fresh mozzarella di buffalo in Italian pizza cannot be substituted. While other cheeses have made their way onto pizza (usually in conjunction with fresh mozzarella), no Italian Pizzeria would ever use the dried shredded type used on so many American pizzas.

I have that itch right now…
That ooey gooey cheese leaking craving for some pizza itch.
Where can I satisfy this beast within me?
How about an Italian restaurant packed with glamor and pizazz?
Why not Piatti’s!
Let’s talk about it…
Like I said, I am feigning for a wonderful crusty, greasy, cheesy tomato sauce smothered slice of pizza.
As I’m driving down the street I turn my head to see an Italian restaurant winking at me on the corner.
I turn in immediately knowing that a great genuine Italian pizza awaits me.
I look at the menu and see a Chicken pizza.
Wow this looks exciting!
Described as bacon, spinach, caramelized onions, mozzarella, roasted garlic-parmesan creamcrushed tomatoes, house-made mozzarella, basil, and evoo.
I order an ice cold IPA while I await this masterpiece to arrive.
I can see the round decorated designer pie coming to me from afar.
Felt like a marching band was coming my way to announce the Queen.
Her oozing cheese with breasts of tender chicken spread over her, with her crusty curvy body made me want to just jump on her right then and there before she even arrived in front me.
She now sits in front of my face and I grab a slice of her with force and put my drooling fangs directly into her luscious tempting tomato sauce smothered body.
A nice crunch, with packs of flavor all over the place!
I bite again to find myself in a dream state engulfing myself in this delightful array of utmost satisfaction.
Thanks for joining me on today’s adventure! I look forward to seeing you on the next run! Keep hope alive!
Eating is an enjoyable way of life. Live it..Learn it..Love it!
