Monday Blues? Nah.. not for the Pizza Chap.
I don't know of many people who love Mondays.  In fact, most folks I know dread them. That being said, attitude has a lot to do with how your Monday is going to play out.  One thing that always helps me get through a tough Monday, or any day for that matter...

I feel like Grilling... Pizza! Screamin' Sicilian's 'Holy Pepperoni' pizza review

Thank the maker for " Pizza Pizza " from Little Caesars!
Let me tell you.. it's been a real scorcher of a summer so far in Northern Colorado.  So much so, that we have been avoiding cooking inside as much as possible to keep the inside of the house cool.  Therefore, my crafting of homemade pizza has been pretty m...

Enlightened 20th century retro Dad with an affinity for the recent past.  I'm a bonafide Pizzaholic and fan of just about anything retro.  Hobbies and interests include writing, blogging, Disney, Vintage Bicycles, homebrewing, toy collecting, and Disc Golf.  I live in Northern Colorado, but have a love affair with the Florida gulf coast, and visit often.

Nothing my party of 8 cared for very much. Seemed like the place was almost entirely staffed by teenagers that were very complacent (at least on the night I visited). Chicken was decent.. but I don't go out for pizza to eat chicken.
