Pizza - Part 2

Clear evidence that people read my blog this week as I received two posted comments on my "Pizza" posting regarding the largest pizza companies in the USA. Sadly though -- the topic of "pizza" garnered more comments than my past postings regarding income tax reform ideas but there in lies the challenge. Although I could completely re-vamp my blogging to create a blog solely dedicated to pizza -- recipes, restaurants, chefs, appropriate beers, etc -- which could lead to a book deal like my friend's blog which is dedicated to a pork product (I won't disclose the book deal until she tells me it is public then of course I will buy a book for my brother who loves the stuff!!).

Coincidentally pork is a key ingredient for several pizza recipes so let's get back to pizza. In this "Part 2" posting I want to respond to the two posted comments. A college buddy noted that I completely overlooked a campus favorite -- Pizza Pit -- which tastes great if you are sober or drunk!! Just for fun today I called the location we always used to go to at +1 515.292.6914 . It is amazing how memory works since it has been 19 years since I graduated from university but can still remember their phone number. FYI -- they are open until 12 midnight today if needed.

So thanks for reminding me about Pizza Pit. Here are a few other chain pizza operations that I have enjoyed over the years:

1.) Godfather's
2.) Rocky Rococo's

To recap for my readers from my initial pizza posting -- Pizza Hut is ranked at the largest (in terms of 206 revenue) pizza firm in the USA but clearly "bigger is not better" when it comes to pizza since I would much prefer a trip to "the Pit" than to "the Hut".

Save me a slice,
