I've had quite a bit of ho fun in my life but it never involved Chinese food (well there was one time in Phuket that may count)

In all seriousness, I'm pretty sure the dishes you mentioned are of the more traditional type.

Szechuan style is my favorite.

Love Szechuan but not good for sleeping when I put highly spiced food in my old gut before bed (delivery is almost always about post-partying food).

The real reason why I enjoy PH much more, though, is because the sauce they use actually has some tang to it. All the other major chains have sauces that are too sweet. Yuck.
Have you tried the new Dominos sauce? It's much better than the old cardboard pizza

I never liked the taste of PH. Domino's I love the variety of toppings they offer, but they all taste like ass. PJ has the best vegetable toppings by far, even though their selection is terribly limited.

the new dominos recipe is much improved(they used to only be good for the 5-5-5), but pizza hut's pan pizza is still the best chain pizza.
The dipping sauce is for the crust, although I do sometimes indulge and dip the pizza in it also. I don't really have such high expectations for fast food pizza that I think any of them are inedibly bland. They all lack an obvious spiced flavoring that a homemade pizza would have, but what are you expecting?

I'm so happy that I live close to places that serve great pizza. I love the typical NYC thin crust and neapolitan varieties, but lately I've been really focusing on grandma slices (thinner than sicilian with more flavor and a little cheese). Two slices of NYC regular pizza is too much, so I if I'm really hungry I'll go with a slice of thin crust, and a grandma's. Its hard to go back to papa johns/pizza hut/ect when you start eating the good stuff.

Don't get me wrong though I'll pound a dominos/papa johns/pizzahut/ect chain brand slice of pizza every once in a while too. Nothing is more appetizing to me at highway service plazas than chain pizza compared to other fast food.

here's the new pup:

Very cute pup.

We have a pizza place nearby that is dine in only. Certified Neopolitan, make their own mozz daily, wood fired oven with bricks from Italy, etc. It's really good stuff.

I hate to say it, but the really good neopalitan pizza has a quick shelf life. when you eat it right there and its good, its really really foodgasm good, but its hard to take home and get that fleeting foodgasm-good level taste. thats the advantage of the dominos/pizzahut/papa johns stuff - it'll keep and can be re-heated.

Agreed. Get enough oil into dough and it's really durable.

Adorable pup!

Speaking of pizza napoletana, I've just been to a place that makes them for the first time in Germany (for some reason, Pizza Napoletana is not well-known in Germany; in Hamburg there's nobody who makes napoletana-style pizza). Well, technically they're not certified, that is member of the organisation--just one in Germany is--, but they label it "pizza vera napoletana rosso" STG nonetheless. Very Napolitean owner etc. Tastes very good. Later today off to another place that makes pizza napoletana (not member of the organisation either).

Congrats on the new pup! He looks adorable.

The best pizza here is by a local place called Bazbeaux. Pricey, but oh so good. And they deliver. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Be sure to socialise it with all family members at a young age. I've had a couple of them in my life and known plenty more (called Queensland Heelers in my parts). Great dogs but they can be very territorial and don't take well to strangers in their territory. You also have to be careful around kids as they have a well developed herding instinct, and may end up herding the kids. They are easily trained and very intelligent, but the training is something that you can not be slack with, you have to do it, and you must be the dominant animal.

which means we'll probably try to throw a lot of money at the problem/tasks and still fail miserably. lol8[1].gif
