Pizza Saturday

I did my traditional Saturday morning trip to Costco and managed to get that all done before the rains showed up. Nothing really new to report, though.

Later in the day I had lunch with Katie at an old favorite, Angelo's in Alhambra. When the kids were little we'd take out pizza from there nearly every week. And every week, the same thing: 1/2 pepperoni and olives and 1/2 sausage and olives.

Today we dined in. The pizza has gone up in price since those days but it is still yummy and worth the money. Katie said she was hungry.. I was, too. We ended up ordering a small Angelo's Deluxe.

"Small" over there means a 14" pizza. We also ordered the "thin" crust, something we've never tried before but the regular crust is so filling we thought maybe we could eat more of the pizza if the crust was thinner.

Here's a picture of the pizza by itself, and then so you can gain a perspective on how big it really is, a picture of Katie sitting across from it.

That's no small pizza! Angelo's "small" is bigger than any jumbo deluxe extra large gigantic-size you might find at Pizza Hut or Dominoes or any of those other chains that are poor excuses for pizza. And you can see the toppings are rather plentiful. This is not deep-dish pizza but it weighs more than any other pizza I've ever had... you would think it was inside of a frying pan, it's so heavy.

We managed to eat half (2 slices each) and took the rest in a box. That was one heavy box.. again, just that 1/2 pizza must have weighed more than 3 extra large whole pizzas from any of the chains. The "thin crust" turned out to be about what a regular crust is anywhere else.

Was it good? Oh, yes.. We had our calorie fix for the day but it was worth it.

Here's a song about another health food:

Well I kept telling you to take the leftovers so you don't have to eat a Cup Noodles.
