Think back to the last time you had a pizza party—maybe it was because your grade school class won a reading contest, or maybe your child’s soccer season came to an end and you were able to snag a celebratory slice.
Even though pizza didn’t originate in the United States (it obviously was first made and eaten in Italy), it’s been a part of American culture since the late 19th century—when Italian immigrants came to our nation’s shores. And pizza is pretty synonymous with a good time here in the U.S.; there’s no argument there.
Where arguments can arise though, are when it comes to what pizza to order… or really, which pizza parlor has the best pie. ?
That’s why I’m proposing that your family have a Pizza Taste-Off, to settle things once and for all. It’s a fun little experiment to get your family’s (and friends’) take on which pizza reigns supreme.
My family and I did this a couple weeks ago, and let’s just say—we were all winners. Since we’re currently in Utah, we tried this with the big national chains, like Papa John’s and Pizza Hut. It was a blast, and now we have a go-to pizza place!
I know pizza isn’t always readily available in every single city around the globe, so you can modify this taste-off to fit your post. Instead of pizza, maybe your family orders lo mein. Or maybe instead of take-out, you try different frozen pizzas. Or maybe you all just try different vanilla ice creams! Truly, the sky’s the limit.
If at all possible though, I highly recommend at least starting this taste-off with pizza. Here’s how to do it.
How to have a pizza taste-off
Clear your family’s calendar and invite your friends and neighbors over—it’s pizza taste-off time!
My family had a root beer taste-off too, but it’s quite the challenge to try and find different root beer brands! You can try it with another soda or local beverage.
No matter how you slice it, a pizza taste-off is sure to be a hit with your friends and family!
