The crust is not as thin as that at Pepe's in New Haven, and the ovens are evidently metal, not brick. But whenever I visit, Casa Bianca reminds me a little bit of home. And I suspect the same was once true for President Obama.
Opening a hit restaurant has got to be one of our most enduring reinvention fantasies. Paul Giannone is one notable boomer who has actually done it. His Paulie Gee's in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York opened in 2010, and has gone on to be one of the top-reviewed and most beloved new pizzerias in the New York area.
Most pizzas have a history of way more than 30 minutes.
If you're traveling abroad and hankering for a slice, decision making can get tricky.

Chuck E. Cheese elicits a flood of memories. Thing is, I wasn't remembering my own childhood; I was remembering my trip at the end of December 2013.

As if that wasn't enough, the special toppings don't just stop at snake, but include other swamp critters like frogs and alligator.
The truest lovers of pizza craft their own from scratch and will most likely never reach for the frozen bricks in disguise.
Privilege is ultimately front and center here. Mr. Cisna could have stopped his fast-food diet at any point. Many Americans, however, are beholden to unhealthy eating out of necessity.
