My Delicious Pizza!

We’ve already talked about the best ice cream in the world.  Now we’re going to talk about the best pizza.  Villiage Pizza III is in Red Hook, NY.  Like Holy Cow,  it is a local landmark.

It was night time and dark 😦

Just like Holy Cow I know many people who have moved out of Red Hook who make sure they stop by Village Pizza for a visit whenever they’re in town.

I’ve spoken to many people about what I consider to be the “best pizza.”  Many people think it’s all about what you grew up on.  If you grew up eating thin crust – that’s what you like.  If you grew up on deep dish – you think that’s the best.  The pizza here is thin crust with just the right amount of sauce so it doesn’t get soggy.  Perfection if you ask me!  I spent so much time there growing up that I can hear the familiar squeak and slam of the front door in the place!

I moved to Pittsburgh for a couple years.  I brought a Village Pizza pie back with me so they could taste what real pizza was supposed to taste like.  Little Caesars is NOT real pizza!  Neither is Pizza Hut!!

Even Isabella understands good pizza!

I grew up on Village Pizza and I love it!  Order me up a slice with cold cheese (or mushrooms – or both) and I’m in heaven!  (So is Miss Isabella!)

One bite just wasn't enough!

Where do you get your favorite pizza from??  What makes it the best?

Loaded Questions

Last night Michael and I attended the Times Union’s Baseball & Bloggers event at the Dale Miller Restaurant.   It was a fun evening with a great turn out.  It was out first visit to the Dale Miller Restaurant.  The event was held on the 13th Floor (A.K.A. – P1) and the views were beautiful!!  Mike Huber – the Times Union’s Interactive Audience Manager organized the event.  Job well done Mike 🙂

Baseball & Bloggers - Boston Red Sox vs. NY Yankees

We arrived earlier than most of the crowd along with Amanda Talar and Kari Vanalstine.  Soon after; we were approached by a Times Union photographer who wanted to take pictures of us.  After she took the picture she asked us “Where are you from?”  (Insert awkward silence here)

WHAT A LOADED QUESTION!!

After she left Kari and I got talking about the possible answers.

Where it all stated:  I came from my Mother’s womb.
Where I grew up:  I grew up in Red Hook, NY (Dutchess County)
Since it was a blogging event I could have said my blog: Dozenroses13’s Blog
Where I currently live: Albany County

Kari’s response to the woman was “when?”  (She’s moved around through the years….)

What other loaded questions have you been asked??
