For a change of pace, Karin and I decided to grab a takeout pie from a place near to her home - Texas Pizza, Pasta, and More.
Word of warning: we were lucky we had decided on takeout, because there is NO seating here. In fact, when you walk in the door you face a large desk - the type a secretary would have. The kitchen is hidden behind the back wall and a large swinging door with a small window near the top. All in all, it made the ordering and waiting an odd experience. We chose to sit in my car outside rather than stand there awkwardly.
When Karin went in and got our pizza (out of doors, out of mind?), we were off to her house for TV and 'za.
Here's the breakdown:
Garlic Cheese Bread: Karin did not care for this much at all, but I was a fan of the thicker consistency. It had a pita-like quality, with some thickness and chewiness, and just the right amount of cheese baked in to it. The marinara was super thin, but pleasantly spicy.
The Mexican (Pizza): Ground beef, bell pepper, onion, black olives, green olives, tomatoes, jalapenos, cheddar cheese, crushed red pepper, and garlic. Double-digit ingredients!!! Let's have a moment of silence for this achievement. . .and for how it just wasn't that great.
The ingredient selection was the strongest part of this pizza. I loved the green olives and jalepenos! The pizza had salt and spice, but the overall quality was lacking. The crust was not crisp in any segment, the cheese was uneven and congealed quickly, and the sauce wasn't really a presence.
