In the pizza wars, only one pizza reigns supreme for me.
Because there's only one pizza for which I get cravings. For the buttery, flaky crust. For the deep dish stuffed spinach goodness. For the liberal amounts of tangy tomato sauce on top.
Sure there are other deep dish pizzas and other stuffed pizzas, but only Giordano's stuffed spinach pizza comes with heaping amounts of nostalgia for my undergrad days. For snowy winters and having to decide whether to brave the cold for Sunday dinner or stay in the dorm and make do with a bag of popcorn.
The stuffed or deep dish pizzas I've tried in California, NorCal and SoCal, just aren't the same. So I was way excited when Gourmet Pigs came back from Chicago with a frozen stuffed spinach pizza for me. Yippee!!!
You can order the pizzas half-baked and frozen at the restaurants and they'll have it ready for you to take on the plane. One of my college friends did this once. On the way to take me to the airport, she said she had to make a pitstop, and came out with two frozen pizzas for me to take home. Way cool.
Just look at the cross-section. Isn't it a beautiful sight?
So delicious. I haven't been back to Chicago since 2006 and sometimes I get pangs of longing for the city and the food.
Giordano's ships frozen pizzas nation-wide, but the prices are pretty steep. Besides, this way, I appreciate the gesture so much more.
Thanks Gourmet Pigs!
