Chicken Bacon ranch pizza is awesome, heart attack worthy but good.

Chicken is a waste of a topping as far as I'm concerned. I like chicken well enough, but it's just not particularly flavorful or exciting. So, it serves no real function in a pizza. I can eat chicken any time pretty much. I do not want it on my pizza.
A chicken confit maybe, but then I'd rather have duck confit. Maybe ultra crispy chicken skin (cracklings). That's about it.

Heh, Kenji explains my feelings on chicken pizza better:

Quote:
Chicken, whether by its breeding or its genetics, is bland. It doesn't add much to a slice of pizza that it wouldn't add just as well if served on the side, see what I mean? There's no cosmic synergy in a chicken pizza, no greater-than-the-sum-of-its-partsness. (Don't even get me started on pasta-on-pizza... the horror!)
Sure, pizza and chicken cook in the same oven, but they remain largely unrelated to each other. Pepperoni, soppresata, or a good chunk of sausage, on the other hand, cooks not just on top of the pizza, but with the pizza. They release salty, flavorful fat that mingles with the melted cheese, drips into the sauce, and flavors the whole pie. They crisp up on the edges, adding salty, crisp bits of texture to match the crunch of the crust underneath.

Of course, some people seem to have come to the realization that chicken on its own is not the ideal pizza topping, which is where we enter the world of the three chicken-dish-pizza-hybrids. Namely, Buffalo Chicken Pizza, Chicken Ranch Pizza, and Barbecue Chicken Pizza.

These are pizza variants that you see commonly in college towns and in Middle America. Indeed, a pizza joint that didn't offer chicken ranch (or at the very least the option to sub tomato sauce for ranch dressing) in Michigan would seem downright odd. But at the risk of sounding like a total pizza snob (as if I haven't already done so already), I'm going to say this: buffalo, ranch, and barbecue chicken pizza were created only to cover up poor pizza. That is, it was created in places where the basics—crust, good sauce, good cheese—were not understood or executed well enough, and thus needed an additional dish of food spread on top of it to add flavor.

That's not to say that all sauce-and-chicken pizza these days is made on inferior crust—the combo has become popular enough that you can now find it at all sorts of pizza joints from great to piss poor. I guess that's what happens when a collective flavor memory reaches critical mass?
To sum up: cured meats, like pepperoni, sausage, ham, guanciale, lardo, soppresata, capicola, pancetta, heck, even anchovies = all good. Fresh meats like steak, ground meat, chicken, pork, seared tuna = leave it on the side, thanks.

I'm having a panic attack... I went into work tonight and started crying, so I got sent home.

I don't want to go back there to work. I don't want to stay on this island.

{{{{{Rubber Biscuit}}}}} I feel so awful for all you've been through.
You should be getting a lot more support, and I think your physical and mental well-being should be the first concern, which are not going to be addressed by staying there.
I think some therapy while you get things sorted out would really help.

I'm so sorry you're going through all of this. No, I don't think you're wrong to be mad. I would be livid!

{{{{{RB}}}}} I am so incredibly sorry he's not being more supportive after such a horrific and traumatic experience. I know every person handles a situation differently, but him putting other things first when you're so very obviously terrified isn't making sense to me. Those other things will be there when you've been taken care of, this situation is NOW, not when he's done guitar playing and helping out a friend.

It was this personal frozen one and I loved every bite. I'll have to look for the big one. I usually make my own but I'm willing to try pretty much anything from Trader Joe's.



Yes I ate it all alone. All 2 servings of it. Yum.


My fat thumb will make mistakes.

Rubber Biscuit, please be safe. Come in and vent if you need to. You have every right to be angry at your boyfriend.
I am not sure where your current location is, but I sincerely hope if coming back to the states is what you want you want it will happen soon.

Take care of your self.

My friend is being obtuse on purpose, with a side of judgmental. I hate when she gets like that. She's a lot of fun to hang out with most of the time, but I sometimes wonder what she says about me when I'm not around based on how much smack she talks about other people.
