Going on a trip and then dedicating myself to World Cup rambles means I have so many topics waiting to be rambled about. That’s funny, considering today’s topic is something I only decided to ramble about yesterday afternoon.
Ramble of the Day
My wonderful older sister, who is “always happy to supply the Hoddle topics,” shared a tweet with me yesterday afternoon, which I will now share with you.
This Pizza Place Is Selling "Just The Crusts" And It's Either A Dream Or A Nightmare https://t.co/s402vhTYLQ— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) July 10, 2019
I will save you the click and tell you that a chain restaurant called Villa Italian Kitchen is selling just pizza crusts as a new menu item. I’ve never heard of Villa Italian Kitchen, but that’s not really what I’m here to discuss. What I’d like to know is: are you one of the people for whom pizza crust is a dream, per the tweet, or a nightmare?
I’m firmly on team dream. Pizza crust is a true delight; crunchy and airy and such a wonderful use of carbohydrates. It serves as a lovely follow-up to the cheesy delight that is the majority of the pizza as perfectly simple bread.
Looking forward to discovering who my friends and enemies are in the comments.
tl;dr: Pizza crust is awesome.
