Pizza Tough Guy sounds like something Jim Duggan would say when he overpays for a slice. Or maybe said about him when he whacks the guy behind the counter with his 2x4 for charging him $8 for a slice.
Every day of my life, my mind drifts to the worst case scenario for the situation I am in and how I would handle it through the power of the Hacksaw

I was thinking @Spaceman Spiff had a post that made me wish I could assign multiple reactions with the roller coaster it took me on then @Fall of Epic pops in here like he is some kind of pizza tough guy.

@SFH - where you at? I want to hear about crawdad or gumbo pizza
:p:p:p:p:p:p:p Gumbo pizza is actually a thing at a few independent places here. And off the top of my head, the only shellfish I've seen on local pizzas is the shrimp offering Dominoes trots out every spring.

The gumbo pizza at both places I know about is basically the seasonings, meat and vegetables (sans okra) on top of standard hand tossed dough and white cheese (I assume it's mozz but I can't swear to it as I have to order no cheese when I have it as a calzone). With apologies to Freud, hot andouille sausage tastes great on a pizza. Throw in red onions, green onions, bell peppers, and all that damn pepper, holy hell, it's strange but delicious.

I have not gotten restaurant / takeout food since this all started in March. Only means from home. That being said, when I’m asked what I miss most out of all things it is probably take out pizza. I have done like French Bread pizzas quick and easy but maybe I’ll plan on doing my pizza from scratch over New Year’s as I don’t think I‘ve made it for a few months now.

I did just make MorningStar Farms Anytizers Sausage Pizza bites for lunch just now so will salute @JN News as I eat the sausage pizza tribute snack

I probably will not watch classic wrestling with it because I couldn’t figure out the proper Bob “Spark Plugg” Holly to pair with it.
Just as well. It has been a while since I read his autobiography but I seem to remember Hardcore Holly referring to pizza as “dago biscuits and gravy” in it.
