    He just told me about it a few minutes ago. Bought the ingredients during our last weekly shopping excursion without my knowledge, the sneaky devil. To which, as always, I was totally oblivious. It doesn’t take much to pull one over on me. icon_redface.gif

    He’s got the dough resting & rising right now. Not sure if he’s gonna roll it out or toss it to make a pie shape. But he’s got a pizza stone out, on which to cook it in the oven. And anchovies for my half, and pepperoni & mushrooms for his half. Maybe some diced onions for him, as well, he hasn’t decided.

    He said he’d like a beer, too. I’ve got 3 Sam Adams cold (a Bostonian, it’s all he’ll drink), plus some sodas (aka pops) I just put in the fridge for backup if he wants, that I’ll likely have for myself rather than beer. In 13 years together he’s never made us a pizza. I can’t wait!

    I love sudden pleasant surprises like this! And I’ll tell yah, despite this lockdown we’ve been eating entirely TOO well! If you live with a chef, and he’s provided with enough stuff, you’re gonna do well. But we do miss the socializing with our friends over meals.

    A few hours ago I made reservations for our favorite gay Key West guest house for early October. Not sure if the virus will impact that, but we lose no money if the pandemic prevents us from going.

    We have our usual 2-story suite with full kitchen, with a huge balcony right over Duval Street, the main drag in Old Town. Have invited a third friend to take the upstairs room with us. He’s checking his schedule.

    He’ll have a queen bed (ours is a king, absolutely essential with my bed-hog guy - icon_razz.gif ). Though single, he can bring a pal if he wants. We all need a getaway, if we can swing this.

    And our friend's a great chef in his own right. So I think the suite’s fully-equipped kitchen is gonna see a workout, between him and my guy.

    We absolutely refuse to be victims of Trump’s incompetence during this crisis. We’re gonna do well during this mess he's exacerbated, and come out smiling. I hope you do, too. icon_biggrin.gif

    Verdict: His pizza tonight was spectacular! Well, what would you expect from a full-blooded Italian/Sicilian? Who learned to cook from his Sicilian grandmother, his Italian mother, and also went to cooking school to be a chef.

    If he can’t cook a great pizza then nobody can. I’m just puzzled why in the 13 years we’ve lived together he’s never done it before.

    We both love pizza, get it all the time. But I never ask him to make anything for me. That smacks of subordination to me. He knows what I like, if he wants to make it fine. “Placing” orders is treating him like a restaurant server.

    As my equal (or superior in many respects), I refuse to treat him like that. Perhaps an eccentric quirk of mine, to be so rigid on that matter. I suppose it’s the way my parents raised me. Plus strict Army chain-of-command rules, or something, I dunno.

    But anyway, the pizza was great. I’m so glad he came up with idea. And perhaps will again some other time. icon_biggrin.gif

    As I wrote before, we’re eating entirely too well during this lockdown. I’ve been afraid to go on our bathroom scale for days. icon_redface.gif

    It was a homemade pizza, for God's sake, not a 4 course meal that included pheasant under glasss. Sheeeeesh. And what the HELL does President Trump have to do with any of it?

    You do have a way of derailing topics about pizza, don't you?
