I’ll admit it; I’m a damn commie when it comes to my food preferences.
Very rarely do I enjoy pizza and you will never hear the following words out of my mouth, ‘Man I could really go for a pizza right about now!’ In fact about the only time I resort to pizza is when my drunken prowess’s allows me to dial the delivery guy’s number correctly.
Maybe there are very few people making good pizza that explains my disinterest.
Or my lust for pizza could of been lost after living with three college roommates, who were pizza delivery drivers, combined with living right above a Little Caesers, which lead to a six month diet of nothing but $5 Hot and Nastys and screwed up delivery pizza
But All Souls Pizza may just make me an American yet, because after a recent trip I find myself craving pizza again.
I ordered the Country Ham and Egg pie pictured below (See this is why restaurants hate people taking photos of food because of shitty Instagrammers like myself).
This pie is a mountain of sexy on dough bro.
First, the crust is just the right version of crisp. I don’t understand these pizza places that are serving pizza where the crust is soft in the middle. Do people actually enjoy that? Sure I like to fold my slices, but Christ I don’t need a Droopy Dog pie, where I spend my time eating most of my ingredients on the pan instead of the actual slice.
Second, holy shit I’m such a whore for food with a cooked egg on top. Yeah break that yoke and let it run ever so slowly over the country ham, cheese, and crust and just let Barry White take over the narration of what you are about to experience.
Now I know your inner redneck is screaming, ‘hey I could really go for a side of ranch or Papa John’s garlic sauce for my crust.’ Be quiet Bobby Hill and just dip that crust in the yolk and thank me later.
There are only two pizzas I have had in my lifetime that is better than All Souls Pizza’s Ham and Egg pizza.
The first Graziella’s Italian Restaurant’s Arugula & Parmesan pie in Brooklyn, NY, recommended by the Food Network’s Chopped Host Ted Allen on The Best Thing I Ever Ate.
The second Biga Pizza’s Sicilian pie, with Italian sausage, mascarpone, roasted red peppers, mozzarella, roasted garlic, and olive oil, in Missoula, MT.
The only complaints I foresee about All Souls is the price, which people will take to the Interwebs to claim things like, ‘I can get two pizzas at Dominos for the price of this medium sized pizza.’ But I will take one ham and egg pie over two chicken, bacon, and ranch pies any day. Put down the ranch bro!
