A few weeks back I decided it was time for Pizza. Believe it or not, that's a very tough decision for me to make. Probably the hardest part is deciding where to go, we (St. Louis area) have so many great pizza places that it can cause great mental anguish for me just to pick a place. I've seen several great pizza joints close in the past few years so I try to spread the love around and keep it close to home also.
So after much thought I decided to get pizza from The Haus Pizzeria and Bar, I had had both a good pizza and a good conversation with the owner from there during my Binge 2010 and wanted to try it again.
We started with a Garden Salad, which comes with lettuce, carrots, black olives, tomatoes, sliced bell peppers, chedder & mozzarella cheeses. Not only was The regular size salad very good it was also more than ample for two adults and one child.
We ordered 2 pizza's the first was a thin crust half cheese and half Zesto Pesto. The Zesto Pesto has chicken, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, pesto sauce and mozzarella cheese. Both of my fellow pizza eaters thought the Zesto Pesto was excellent. Although not the kind of pizza I would order for my self, I also enjoyed a slice of Zesto Pesto. The Cheese pizza was well accepted also. What little was left over of the two was gone before I could get to them the next day, they had to be good for the girls not to leave me any.
The second pizza was a "Thicker Crust" with pepperoni, Canadian bacon, hamburger and red onions. Yeah, I know I'm pretty predictable. I have to be honest here, I'm not a big note taker, never have been, so I'm writing this from memory and it has been at least a month maybe longer since I ate the pizza. That being said what I remember most was that I was in a happy place while eating this pizza. The crust brought a flood of memory's from my childhood. Although the pizza from The Haus is assembled and cut slightly different from the pizza of my childhood the crust is very similar, and was really bringing back great memory's. I keep going on about the crust, but the pizza as a whole was very good, and I know I say this all the time, but it was truly a struggle to close the box and not just eat the whole thing in one sitting. I normally take several photos throughout the eating process of the crust and such, but I was put a little off balance by the flash back and never photos beyond the unveiling.
I'm sure that there will be those that can't put the pizza into one of their well defined category's (New York, St Louis, Chicago, etc.) and won't like it, but if you don't try it you will never know, maybe it will bring a flood of memory's to you also. What more can I say?
