Self Care – $5 Pizza Vs. $135 Pizza (YouTube Video)

Worth It” is a really cool and funny Buzzfeed video series. So far, with two exceptions (a date and a tattoo), it’s mostly focused on food; comparing the same dish at three different price points. In this case, it’s pizza:

Now I love me some pizza, but I’d rather spend $5 than $135, thanks. I don’t need truffles and fancy cheese on my pizza. I just need mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce, and, if it must have toppings, mushrooms and black olives or pepperoni… or the cheese itself is perfect enough. And it needs to be foldable without breaking with a thin, crispy crust. Though I love a good Sicilian, and I’ve yet to try Chicago’s lasagna pie pizza, so I won’t pass judgement on that.

Anyways… enjoy your pizza, however it’s made and at whatever price point. I’d like to say that pizza is one of those things that’s good even when it’s bad, but then people who believe that have obviously never had kosher pizza… [insert *dry heave* gif here]

Don’t. Get. Me. Started. On. Kosher. Pizza.

    Now I’ craving pizza.
    I don’t care for truffles (except the chocolate variety), but the first two looked really good.
    For me, with pizza, less is more. I don’t want an “everything pizza”. On the other hand that makes it really hard to decide which pizza to take.
    And there’s a pizza that could only be born in Germany: Döner pizza. You take a classic margarita and then when it’s done you add some hot Döner meat and Döner sauce.

    Also, one day I will build my own pizza oven.

    Do get a chance to try Chicago style. Just like each of the choices in the video, they’re … different.
    There is a Daily Show segment from June 1, 2011 on the Donald and pizza. Epic Stewart rant.

    You can totally get that here in Scotland too.

    However, I’m pretty sure it’s only we Scots who would ever think to deep fry pizza. (Although I’ve never seen deep-fried Döner pizza…)
