>Most college students live off of pizza. When I tell my friends I don’t like pizza they look at me like I just told them ‘I’m an alien.’ Generally, they can’t believe it when I say I don’t like pizza. However, saying I don’t like pizza is a little bit of an overstatement. I cannot eat thick crust pizza that is mushy and greasy and all you can taste is the dough. I do like really thin, crispy crust pizza with interesting ingredients on it.
Tonight, I went to Roman Candle pizza with a friend and got one of those pizzas! Also, on our way we found a really cute organic bakery in Middleton…great find! I recommend the banana bread whoopie pie with cream cheese frosting! As for Roman Candle, the pizza was exactly what I was looking for. Although the prices were a little high for my liking, when we were seated by the succulent lined front window I was excited for people watching and to order their most popular pizza, the pestoral. The pestoral comes with pesto, feta cheese, kalamata olives, roma tomatoes, roasted red peppers and artichoke hearts. It was very good! I little greasy and I would have appreciated the addition of chicken for the $17 price tag but it was definitely better than the sauce-covered lump of dough I could have gotten from numerous campus pizzerias. The one thing I wanted to try but my wallet and stomach wouldn’t hear of it…the roasted asparagus appetizer. I’ve never heard of such a think and wonder what it consists of!
