I like to experiment a bit with my snacks at home. Yesterday, realizing how much of a fan I was with cheese on crackers and also melted cheese, I thought I might try putting melted cheese on crackers.

I mean, cheese on crackers is tasty, and so is melted cheees, so by putting the two together, it's only logical that the end result is twice as tasty, right? WRONG. Turns out the tasty scale is actually logarithmic, so I was mildly disappointed with the outcome.

Anyway, that's my cullinary highlight of the week.
Good day.

I made some pizza dough on Thursday. I had some left over come dinner so I took the dough rolled it to about 6 inches and put some chicken, bbq sauce, mozzarella, and my pizza sauce in the middle. I rolled it up covered it in fake butter and fake garlic. Sprinkled it with cheese and cooked it.
Very good.

Until the flu hit. It did not taste good the second time.

the flu. Good times. And 100 posts for you as well. Crazy.

I went over to my friends' house for dinner last night and they made me this mango chicken dish over couscous. Super tasty.

My family use to make pizza, but we always went for overkill with the amount of toppings, and it wasn't worth the time or the effort in the end.

the key to good pizza isnt the toppings. Lots of topping just means the rest of the pizza sucks. If you make the food right, you don't need to add stuff to it.

I remember when I went to Italy I was confused as hell, since the pizza there is nothing like what we eat in the states. Still delicious, just a completely different thing.

I disagree. I make the sauce just the way I like it, which is better than anywhere else I've tried (it is basically just pasta sauce, but with my own blend of spices and garlic). The crust is basically exactly the way I like it (I have had good crust elsewhere). And the other than the fact that cheese is just standard mozzerella (which is pretty normal for pizza), it would be pizza just the way I like it, regardless of toppings. But you throw on some bacon, chicken, pepperoni, ham, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, fresh tomatoes and I like it all the more.
Though, I would agree with you for pizza not made at home. For ordering, I'll order a many-topping pizza if the place generally makes them poorly.

And I would also agree about food in general. Stuff shouldn't have to be added to it afterwards if you are spending the right time cooking. But, I'm not willing to say that the sausage penne I ordered is a poor bit of pasta because they added sausage to it, which is how I feel about your topping argument, at least in regards to my homemade pizza.

I have never really seen the appeal of pizza, its just a cooked tomato and cheese sandwich without the top slice of bread. Sure you can add loads of cool toppings, but why? I would rather have those toppings as they are normally and part of a normal meal.

However when I am drunk I would tell you that pizza is probably the best food in the world, so dont trust my opinions too much.

Home made lasagna is the best food ever.

But pastas in general are ace as well.

Also, i love subs, especially quiznos'*

You don't have any "cred".
Also, one of the worst meals of my life was lasagna. The guy making it loved using thickly chopped veggies in nearly everything. In this case, they didn't get cooked properly, and I ended up crunching through my lasagna. Not good.

My mother is terribly miserly about how much cheese she uses, so her lasagna end up looking and feeling nothing like lasagna. They still taste good though.

Geez, thanks.

Also, i maintain my point about lasagna. When executed properly, it's a perfect mix of pastas, cheeses and meat. Something that can never be equalled.
