3.14 (Pi Day) 2020

It's the 14th day of the 3rd month which, according to conventional American date formats, that's written out as 3.14 or Pi Day!  This is a verbose way of saying that we have a brilliant excuse to eat pizza today and I did! 
My Pi Day haul
Of course, given that nothing is conventional in America right now due to the COVID-19 corona virus, I practiced social distancing by beelining to my local supermarket and purchasing not one, not two, not three...but 3.14 (assuming french bread pizza counts at .14)  frozen pi(es)! I figure while my wife and I are cooped up in our apartment, it will be fun to taste the differences between the frozen pies (and french bread pizza) I procured.

Newman's Own Uncured Pepperoni thin and crispy pizza

First up: Newman's Own Uncured Pepperoni 
I baked it in about 20 minutes (including pre-heat time).  It was a bar style Newman's Own Uncured Pepperoni thin and crispy pizza with whole milk mozzarella.  My heart yearns (but also burns) for the spicy pepperoni. That's my favorite part. Since the slices are so thin, they aren't very filling so don't be surprised if you eat the whole thing.  I love Paul Newman, Newman's Own, and pizza so this was a triple win.

It also helped that I ate it while watching virtually live improv comedy from the Magnet Theater on a social distancing friendly online format called twitch.  I highly recommend checking it out while we're all sequestered in our homes without any live events. Here is the link:  (full disclosure, I am one of the owners of the Magnet Theater and, regardless of whether we survive this disruption, it is my mission to make as many people aware of the wonderful world of improv as possible)
