The ‘Why I Run Wednesday’ posts are a weekly feature exploring a past, present, or future reason why I run.
“This blog is supposed to be about running AND pizza, but all you talk about is running…” There are pizza places aplenty to indulge at in the Twin Cities. I’ve recently ranked my favorites, but to not keep you in suspense I’ll let you know which one is my favorite…
In the last month, I’ve received THREE Pizzeria Lola gift cards so I suppose you could say it’s not the best kept secret that Lola is #1 in our household. Tonight, Jen and I completely branched out and skipped over our usual order of The Iowan (prosciutto! arugula!) and The Forager (mushrooms galore) for the Korean BBQ (beef short ribs, mozzarella, scallions, arugula, sesame and soy-chili vinaigrette) and The Boise (potato, gruyere, cream, cartelized onion, olive oil and rosemary). As always, AMAZING. The crust itself is worthy of complete meal status; add on high quality, perfectly paired ingredients, toss it all in a HOT wood-fired oven and BAM! Pure magic.
Another favorite, Hello Pizza, shares the same owner, but a modern diner style all of its own. The relaxed, pizza by the slice dining made for the perfect early dinner post-LONG run this past Saturday with a big group of family and friendly. Keep your eyes on that pizza prize!
So why do I run? The pizza. All the pizza.
