Schlafly Bottleworks February 2012, Birthday Pizza.

It is that time of year when the Chief Pizza Eater gets to be another year older, rounder and shorter.  That means birthday pizza.

I had a couple of places in mind, but one was surrounded by the Mardi Gras celebration and the other I found out was no longer in business.  So after a bit of back and fourth I decided on Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood, MO.

I have reported on Schlafly Bottleworks a couple of times in the past so I won't bore you with all the details.  As in the past the food and service was excellent.

I ordered a Bison, pepperoni and red onion pizza with the house blend cheese and on their hand tossed Pilsner dough crust and it was delicious.  (WARNING, non-pizza content!) Just to mix things up Mrs. Chief Pizza Eater ordered the Meatloaf.  I have tried unsuccessfully several times to order the Meatloaf only to be told, sorry we only serve it during supper, or sorry we have already sold out of the Meatloaf, etc.  So of course the day I want to order pizza they have plenty of meatloaf, it was also excellent.  For dessert the table of 11 mostly non-pizza eaters shared a Sticky Toffee Pudding.  There just isn't much better way to end a birthday meal that the Sticky Toffee Pudding.

Highly Recommended.

Frozen: Culinary Circle Ultra Thin Crust Margherita Pizza

While doing our weekly Grocery Shopping I had a moment of weakness,  and found a Culinary Circle Ultra Thin Crust Margherita Pizza (and a Ultra Thin Pepperoni Pizza, but it's still in the freezer.  2 for $5 what can I say...) in the grocery bag when I got home.  Not a brand from my youth, but what the heck.

Culinary Circle's pizza has an "olive oil based sauce topped with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, vine ripened tomatoes and basil", that's what the box says.

The box doesn't look all that big, but once the pizza is out of the box it looks huge compared to the pizza.  following the directions on the box the pizza is done in less than 15 minutes.  As with most frozen pizza the final product didn't really look as good as its packaging.

As far a taste, well it was okay.  We didn't have any left overs to deal with, so it couldn't been to bad.

Culinary Circle is a Supervalu brand and is sold at Shop'n Save in my neck of the woods, so if you don't live in the St. Louis Metro area and you can't live with out trying a Culinary Circle Ultra Thin Crust Margherita Pizza goto and find a store in your area.

The Chief Pizza Eater.


Back in the day when the Chief was a young whippersnapper, he survived for weeks (maybe months) at a time on something called Frozen Pizza.  Today when the Chief looks back on his misspent youth he has fond memories of Frozen Pizza.  So going forward from time to time he will revisit his youth and throw some Frozen Pizza your way.

Can it ever be as good as it was?
