I love anime. I love pizza. So you’d think I’d also love Code Geass, that perfect melding of two into an action sci-fi where pizza is always being eaten. Alas, it was not to be—but I still am a fan of C.C., that tritagonist (there’s a new word!) that among other things is known as “Pizza Girl.” I’ve love this description of her from the Code Geass wiki:
She has on some episodes worn the Ashford Academy uniform and has her hair tied in twin-tails. This is done to slightly blend in with the student body so she can move around more freely, to pass messages to Lelouch or just to simply find more pizza.
So today, I want to hear from you about your favorite pizza! But first, here’s what some of our writers mentioned when I asked them the same:
If I have to pick one pizza that was my favorite, it’s probably plain old pepperoni. It’s a classic. That said, the Greek Pizza by Pizza Boli is fabulous. The fantastic Tzatziki Sauce makes it a solid white pizza. Add on the gyro meat, spinach, and feta and I’m a happy camper.
There’s this Filipino pizza franchise called Yellow Cab that I really miss now, and the four cheese pizza with additional pepperoni was the best.
Home made cheese pizza made from ingredients from Trader Joe’s!
…all I’ll say is, just make sure there’s a lot of toppings, and if you can, either put very little cheese or even no cheese. Because I’m a heretic who doesn’t like cheese.
I’ll have a BBQ chicken pizza with red onion, jalapenos, and shredded mozzarella cheese from the nearest mom and pop pizza joint you can find.
A local place called Firehouse Pizza has really good pizza. My favorite type in general would be pepperoni, mushrooms, and green pepper—Firehouse is good for that, but I also like making it at home! Then I can pile on tons of toppings, haha.
I’ve never met a slice I didn’t like! And although there are definitely better pizzas, my go-to is sausage and black olives at Papa John’s.
Now it’s your turn! Please tell us what your favorite pizza is—toppings and pizza joint! We want to hear your recs!
