Nick's Pizza

I've had a craving for pizza for some time, what with all the heat, cooking, and salads at home lately.  Rodney and I both knew he'd likely suffer for it, but since he was game for some ultra-cheesy, thick-crusted, grease-laden Nick's, I snapped on the opportunity while the iron was hot.

Calling in the order at 6 p.m. on Friday night, we were delighted in finding that the wait wouldn't be any longer than the typical 20 minutes.  Once Rodney returned home with hot pie in hand, we excitedly opened the warm-to-the-touch box to find...















A pepperoni pizza?  Say WHAT?!

Initially shocked, then slightly disgruntled, we decided not to call and complain.  After all, it was 6:30 on a Friday night.  We dished up our slices and found, with some surprise, the other ingredients nestled under the cheese! 















I think I've mentioned before that Nick's doesn't serve up a standard pizza.  By that, I mean you don't get the same exact thing each and every time, even if you order the exact same thing.  While some people find that dastardly, we sort of like it.  It's like gambling in a way, except the chances of losing are nil.  It might not be perfect each and every time, but you'll definitely be satisfied.
 
This pie, though, was too wet for my tastes, with juices and grease running, requiring Bounty to come to the rescue.  It was so wet, the box right under the pie was getting damp.  But man, the salty sweetness of sauce, ham, pepperoni, olives and cheese mingled with the mushrooms and slightly biting onions, it cannot be outdone.  And I could only imagine how well this would reheat in a skillet yielding toppings smothered in warm gooey cheese with crispy crust the next few days.

About $19 OTD plus toke.  Plan on having pizza for 3 days, it's that big and dense.

I was right -- it was superb reheated in a skillet today.  Lunch was killer!
