Before I get started, did you know about this website? You poke in your zip code and it shows you all the restaurants that deliver in your area? Hmm. Sorry, I’m easily amused (and distracted). UPDATE: The website above is awful. Sorry.
The other night I called Al’s Pizzeria to deliver a pizza, veggie calzone, and a salad. Al’s is close to my house so the pizza is always hot and they make a good pie. While my (Words With) Friend chowed down on a righteous pepperoni pizza, I tried the veggie calzone. (Check it out above. It looks like a smiling spaceship.) At first I was a bit disappointed—the cheese in the calzone wasn’t melted and the vegetables (mushrooms, peppers, olives, and onions) were cool to the touch. I popped it in the oven and heated it up until the cheese and marinara sauce bubbled over the mushrooms.
I hadn’t eaten a calzone in a while and I’d forgotten how dang hard they are to eat (especially when you are attempting to play WWF on your iPhone). Once you add the sauce and pick it up, the whole ship crumbled to a messy pile of melted cheese, vegetables, and crust. Had to use a fork. And while it may not look pretty, it tasted pretty damn good. Do you calzone or pizza?
