Macaroni and cheese. Peanut butter and jelly. Beer and pizza – just a few of the great gastronomical combinations of all time. Yet, nothing sends the taste buds into overdrive quite like a hot, fresh slice of pepperoni and an ice cold beer – or even a cold slice and warm beer, come to think of it. Add to this everything from extreme skiing videos to gourmet sun-dried tomato and Alaskan Sea Bass, and you’ve got yourself a pizza dining experience that rarely fails to disappoint or at least entertain. So here’s to the culinary wizardry of our local pizza spinners, who faithfully deliver two of America’s favorite pasttimes to the clamoring masses, all while managing not to get too crusty.
