I took this photo on Tuesday for a Gathering Together Farm blog post. It was only a photo, and the pizza wasn’t mine to eat, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it. This afternoon on our way to a Star Wars-Lego party at the local library, Levi and I stopped by GTF just to pick up pizzas. I ordered the mushroom/spinach, and I enjoyed every last bite. So satisfying.
Okay, I’m ready to declare…Pizza is my favorite food. Period.
I feel like pizza’s kinda gotten a bad rap lately with all the debate about school lunch nutrition and reclassifying pizza as a vegetable. It’s true that the hydrogenated cardboard stuff that they’re serving in school cafeterias deserves a nasty reputation, but GOOD pizza? I wouldn’t go so far as to say pizza is a vegetable, but real, handmade, wood-fired-oven pizza is not only delicious, but it really is pretty healthy, too.
At the present time, my two favorite localish places to eat pizza are at Gathering Together Farm (Yes, I am biased, but really, it is fabulous.) and The Bread Board in Falls City (and now a second location in Silverton).
I hardly ever leave town, but maybe I would for a great slice, so tell me, where do you go for pizza? Leave your recommendations (in Oregon or elsewhere) and fun pizza stories in the comments if you feel so inclined.
