That's true. I think that the biblical Manna from Heaven was pizza. It has meat, vegetables, wheat, and dairy products all in one meal. We currently live in St. Louis, Missouri. The local pizza brand is Imo's. To me it's a piece of cardboard with toppings on it. But most of the city seems to love it. I told my wife about this thread and she said we can always just make our own pizza. Which leads to a funny pizza story:

20 years ago we lived on a hobby farm in a rural area. My wife, four kids and me. One day a mother from the nearby city brought her daughter over to play with my kids. This was the only child of an only child of an only child. The mother was concerned that having another kid around would be a hardship, especially as I said I would feed the daughter before I took her home. I explained that with four kids another one is not an issue. It's not like I have to double the amount of food provided.

When the mother arrived I was working in our large garden. I showed her around the land a little bit. We were in a slow process of building a new wing on the house, we had about 30 hens (and one mean rooster), some fruit trees and 3 or 4 pigs.* The mother went inside the house and talked to my wife. At the time my wife was sewing a new Girl Scout uniform. I mean literally creating a uniform out of fabric. This is a pretty rare skill in the U.S. now. When the mother came out I gave her a box of fruits and vegetables, pecans and a dozen eggs.**

Later on in the evening it's time to take the daughter home. But the kids hadn't eaten yet. So I called up the mother and explained that it was taking longer than expected to make the pizza dough so the kids could have pizza. Could the daughter stay awhile longer? She said okay. The wife and kids finished making the dough, cut up whatever toppings they wanted, then baked and ate homemade and 90% homegrown pizza. When it was all over I took the daughter home.

It wasn't until much later that I realized how this must look to a person from the city. She must have thought that we were Amish or something like that. Growing our own food, building an addition onto our house, sewing fabric into clothing, making pizza from scratch. To us it was normal and this was the life that we lived and enjoyed. We worked for money. But our relaxing hobby was working on our land. Which is the difference between working to live and living to work.

To this day we sometimes make a joke about the pizza incident. I wanted some blackout curtains for our bedroom recently. My wife said that we had better plant cotton so she could weave fabric. Or if I need nails from the store I've said that I'm going to mine and smelt ore so I can get make nails.

----

*We bought 4 shoats (newly weaned pigs) each spring. Then fattened them up over the summer for slaughter or Lechon. They were usually named Breakfast, Lunch, Supper, and Sausage. The kids did not get attached to them. The kids understood that the meat they ate came from animals.

**With 30 hens running around anyone who visited us got free eggs. The kids school teachers got free eggs. Our Priest got free eggs. God, we would get tired of eggs.

I enjoy Pizza Hut in the USA, but have tried Philippines Pizza Hut, Greenwich, S&R, YellowCab, Michelangelo's and many other pizza places, but none of them could compare to USA Pizza Hut. Worse yet if you tried to compare to Gino's Pizza in Chicago! I gave up trying to find good pizza in the Philippines and instead bought an oven and make my own. There are good suppliers of Italian flour, pepperoni, cheese, etc.. in Cebu. Go homemade!

I'm with you. I like pizza for sure but I'm sure not willing to mess around trying to make the stuff. Growing up in Southern California, my favorite pizza place was Two Guys From Italy. They had one in Van Nuys, in Hollywood, and one in Las Vegas NV. Here in the islands I have found that S&R is about the best.
Now, if I could just find a decent bagel I'd be a happy camper.

There's a bagel kiosk in both Robinsons Galleria and Ayala malls in Cebu that produce palatable bagels... I didn't grow up in New York, but worked and went to school there. Bagels in Cebu are okay, not excellent.

From my perspective on pizza, I'd rather have no pizza than garbage pizza. I also tried S&R hoping it might be the equivalent of Costco in the USA, but no dice.

As has been mentioned by Lefties, each to their own. All one can do is try it & see if it floats your boat.
