Pizza Party...

When I was a kid, we used to have a pizza party whenever our class did something particularly good.  It wasn't the rectangles of cardboard doom they served on Mondays in the cafeteria either!  It was brought in from a local pizzeria and was definitely a reward.

The pint-sized metal desks with wood veneer tops have long been put away, but the tradition still stands.  On Thursdays (our late nights at Allegory Gallery) I treat myself to grilled pizza from Connections Cafe.  And boy is it good!
They only make the grilled pizzas during the warmer months on Thursday nights and special occasions.  One of my favorites is the caramelized onion with blue cheese.  Sharon drizzles a bit of balsamic, which seems to bring out the sweetness of the onions and the tang of the cheese.  The grill gives a nice smoky quality to the crust and makes it nice and crispy.  

It's definitely a good thing!

I shouldn't have read this one. I want pizza now. I do remember the pizza parties we would have in school.
