You know you're a pizza making nut when...
« on: October 27, 2006, 06:08:39 PM »
- your phone is ringing.  It's your mother who you haven't spoken to in a week but Peter just posted something new and you can't walk away from the computer.
- you walk into a new grocery store you've never been to before and you look for the following items 1) can's of italian tomatoes; 2) fresh mozz; 3) flour; then you walk out.
- you wake up in the morning and before you do anything else you go check on your dough
- you clearly recognize the first 20 hits on google with a search of "pizza recipe" or "caputo" or "Neapolitan"
- your friends are talking about motorcycles, new BMW, minivans and you are talking about building a pizza oven
- no matter what the conversation is at a get together you somehow bring up pizza and then love the next 30 minutes of discussion
- your wife has memorized the pizza making forum member names having never been to the site before

ok good thread  ;D

now gotta come up with a catchy pizza line or 2  :-D

we have this over on our tastybrew forum, and it's good fun.

http://www.tastybrew.com/humor/

Well I can't think of any originals, so here are 2 modified ones.

I'm sure others will jump in with overs  :-D

just a couple of the good ones:
-If you refuse to pay $8.00 for a beer in a restaurant because you can make 5 gallons for that much.
-If your computer passwords are all related to beer.

so.... you know you are a pizza nut if :
- you refuse to buy a pizza for $10 when you know you can make it for a buck 50 !
- all your computer passwords are pizza related !

Your friends ask if you are ready for them to taste test the new flour/ingredient you've been raving about for weeks.

You can walk into a Neapolitan-style pizza joint, eat a pie, and accurately identify what kind of flour was used, commercial yeast or starter, oven temp, and cooking time. OK, it was probably a lucky guess, but you should have seen the look on the face of the owner.

After writing this, I realize this is probably just me, but at least I can laugh at myself…

Your wife knows she is going to have to give you a detailed analysis of each of your pizza experiments even though they all taste virtually to same to her.

When you eat pizza out you can’t resist making a comment about how either you can make better pizza or justify why you can’t reproduce it.

When your friends come over for dinner, they know what you’re making.

You want to keep a 20 year old oven that has a cracked glass door because the thermostat is defective. (Everything else burns but pizza comes our great)

You spend more time talking and reading about pizza than you do making/eating it.

You can’t decide which you enjoy more, making pizza or eating it. (Okay they’re both pretty great).

You print out 175 pages of old posts and read them on the train every day. (You now look forward to the commute to work).

You want to try to experiment with a recipe but you are so happy with the current results that it takes over a year of making the same recipe over and over before you are ready to make an alteration at the risk that it will not be as good.

You suddenly become interested in the sciences and mathematics because it could improve your pizza.

1)You inspect your food and photograph it for the record,before you take a bite.

2)you can only eat your own pizza if planned 36 hrs in advance.

3)Your wife accepts that your cultures are actually your pets.

4)Friends and relatives stop asking you for restaurant suggestions as they know it can only involve Pizza.

5)The first places you visit in any new place you go are the pizzerias.

6)You visually inspect the "Wood Burning" oven before you decide if to ask for a table and your Wife no longer gets embarrassed when you walk out..

7)You accidentally go into the kitchen when looking for the bathroom to check out the flour etc.

8)Your day starts and ends with Pizzamaking.com

9)Your vocabulary includes words unknown to anyone else but Pizza fanatics.

10)You follow and are followed around the internet by Peet-za et al.  ;)

11)Duffel, It knows them, Peaks,weak person,I leavan are all very relevent to you.

12)If it wasn't for the internet you'd still be thinking you are the only person in the world who thinks like you do and you would seriously be considering some type of therapy.

Your wife sees you on the computer asks if you're "chatting with your pizza friends".

You have a company pot luck lunch and everyone want to know what kind of Pizza you are bringing. 

It was two Sicillian pies with garlic and tomato slices on top, BTW.

I find that the sicillian presents (looks) better cold.  NY style tastes every bit as good, but doesn't have the same eye appeal.

A co-worker brings his camera with him to the company Christmas party and shows you a picture of his latest pizza.   :-D

You get home from work early and say "I've been thinking about you all afternoon".

Your wife smiles but then realizes you are talking to the dough you left proofing on the counter.

Sad, but it happened Wednesday.
If I spent this much time researching my investments I would be retired by now.
