My first job was Giordano's Pizza on LIncoln Ave in Chicago. My second job in Chicago (a few jobs later), was Bacino's Pizza. Both jobs were in my Lincoln Park neighborhood and instilled my work ethic as well as made me fall in love with the food industry.
Sometimes, I worked six days a week and on the seventh day I would crave pizza. I love pizza and I KNOW pizza.
So when I started thinking about putting together a food menu for a fundraiser, I quickly decided on a Pizza Party. It's the perfect fundraiser for A Yogi Kitchen! AND, our time frame falls right at both the Super Bowl and Valentine's Day. It wasn't calculated, but it's perfect.
What's better for the Super Bowl than pizza, right? Surprisingly, when I worked at those restaurants I found that pizza is a very popular Valentine's Day meal. In fact, heart shaped pizzas are HUGE in Chicago.
This is confusing to many people and I get it. I meet other Chicagoans who think pan and stuffed pizzas are the same thing.
Picture an apple pie. It's just like that. There's a buttery, tender bottom crust in a 6x2 inch, metal pan. . It's filled with fresh, healthy ingredients and the best mozzarella cheese. Then we top it with another crust. The difference, from the apple pie, though, is what happens next. The gooey, melted cheese and ingredients meld together, the top crust holds the deliciousness in and we top it with a well-balanced, not-too-sweet-not-too-tangy, house-made red sauce. If you like meat, you have the choice of our phenomenal house-made Italian Sausage. We make EVERYthing from scratch!
