It’s always comforting to find out that one is not alone in their search for meaning, even when that meaning hinges on the existence of nostalgic frozen foods. The pizza that’s been on my mind lately has its own Facebook fan page, where hungry adults have searched in vain for the very specific cafeteria pizza of their youth. One New Englander’s Tony’s Thick Crust Rectangle
is another midwesterner’s Nardone Bros. Whole Wheat Cheese/Cheese Substitute
As I write this it is officially pizza day at Nauset Regional High School, where I’m sure the crisp New England air is creating pleasant waves of steam rising from piping hot crusts. Scratch that. I just looked at the menu and it seems that Nauset has done away with pizza day in favor of Mexican lasagna.
Since none of you want to go in on a 96-serving case of frozen mystery pizza with me that may or may not be of desired historically accurate consistency (unless perhaps I’m not putting enough faith in my readers?), we might just have to realize this dream in our own kitchens.
