Let’s be real. Syracuse, N.Y. is not known for its cheese or tomato sauce. It’s famous for its snowy weather and winning basketball team. The first being somewhat dreadful, the second, THRILLING. But as wonderful as watching ‘Cuse beat ‘Nova was last night (HAHHHHH!)– I couldn’t help but glare at the perceptive, yet sloppy fans that made the choice to eat flat bread pizza at Chuck’s. Mmm. Just thinking about it makes me want to spend my Sunday night at the bar.
Clearly, it’s no secret at this point. I love pizza. The only things guilty of keeping me from eating greasy slices seven out of seven days a week are my healthy conscious, and arguably more so, my geographic limitation. I spent this past summer living in lower Manhattan, within walking distance to some of the best pizza I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating. Now, in order to get a decent slice I have to trek eight miles through a snow covered quad-like-forest. Okay, a slight exaggeration, but the point is although pizza exists in Syracuse, it’s more difficult to find that slice that will blow your mind with the first bite.
Don’t misunderstand, though. Great pizza DOES exist here. So, despite the limitation of being an upstate N.Y. pizza lover, I’m going to write about the pizza experiences I have with hopes to one day taste something better. Until then, I’m full of the excitement that comes with having an excuse to eat pizza more often.
