For those who already know me, and for those who "know" me from my other blog, you know that I love pizza. Actually, that's inaccurate. I am obsessed with pizza.
It's not an uncommon food to be crazy over, but I think my obsession really began when I got yanked out of my comfort zone -- aka, New York City -- where I had always taken my slices for granted. (I guess it's true that people always want what they can't have.)
I spent a year in Madison, Wisconsin and now I'm going on two years in Cleveland, Ohio, and during this time I made it a mission of mine to find the best slices and weed out the nasties. I'll review my slices as I go (in between bites, of course), and you can decide for yourself which you might want to try. Most of my reviews will be on pizza in Cleveland, but if and when I travel and find something, I'll write about that too.
I've come up with a few "rules" for myself in the creation of this pizza blog:
- I will only write about pizza that I myself have tasted, not just pizza I've heard about.
- I will include only original photos of all the pizza I review. This means a) no grabbed photos from restaurant websites and b) no photos from sites like flickr or photobucket. This, in turn, means that c) I will either have to wait to review most pizzerias until I can return to take a photo, or I'll have to write the review and add a photo later.
- Unlike my yelp reviews (which you can also read by clicking on the widget to the right), I won't be reviewing the restaurant or establishment as a whole, nor will I review other food at this place. Just the pizza. I do, however, reserve the right to take certain excerpts or phraseology from yelp reviews I've already written.
I think that sounds pretty doable, right?
Also -- if there's anyone actually reading this -- if you are a pizza lover/snob/guru/addict or all of the above, and you'd like to submit a review of a local pizza place in your area (even if it's not in Cleveland), let me know by leaving me a comment!
Now, let's get our slice on!
