Why I Love Pizza – A Personal Essay About My Favorite Food
Posted by: I Dream Of Pizza in MiscellaneousNovember 21, 2008

Ever since I was a little boy, pizza has always had a special place in my heart. From pizza day in the school cafeteria to pizza parties at sleep away camp, there was nothing more exciting than when that cardboard box was opened to reveal a round pie with eight delicious slices waiting to be devoured.
Early on I learned that everybody eats their pizza differently. There are those who fold their slices in half, those who eat their slices with two hands, and those who (dare I say) like to cut their pizza with a fork and knife. Some people soak up the olive oil with a napkin, while others don’t mind a greasy slice. Some people like the crust, while others live for that first bite. Some people decorate their slices with spices, while others like it plain.
Nearly any ingredient can be put on pizza. From pepperoni and anchovies to barbecue chicken and pineapple, every pizza pie is like a unique work of art. Every pie is a different shape and size. There are thin crust pies, deep dish pies, and everything in between. There are pies with different cheeses and tomato sauce, or even pies with a completely different base altogether.
Growing up in the suburbs of Washington, DC there weren’t so many great options for pizza. Ordering in from Domino’s and Pizza Hut was a weekly occurrence. But when I arrived in New York in 2002, I was thrust into an entirely new pizza universe.
Living at an NYU dorm by Washington Square Park, I developed a quick allegiance with my local pizzerias. I could barely walk a block without passing by a shop — many of them claiming to serve up the best slice in the city. There was Joe’s on the corner of Bleecker Street and Carmine Street (which…...

Why I?

...Why I love fashion At an early age wool, cotton, linen, and silk have been always a part of me. Not much has changed since that time except for the fact that I have grown to love and appreciate what goes on behind the scenes in the fashion industry. I simply dress to have amusement to my existence. As Bill Cunningham described in his wonderful documentary "Fashion is our suit of armor to survive every day life. It would be like doing away with civilization." I was confused on whether to engage my life to the fashion industry being such a competitive job. I believe that fashion has pushed me out of my comfort zone to try things I never would have imagined I would. What keeps me passionate about the fashion world is the freedom and creative expression one gets. You can express yourself and maybe people will listen or respond. If I see someone with a great pair of shoes on (for example), I may go up to them and tell them and we strike up a conversation and perhaps we become friends. This isn't always the case but it is more likely since you started with a mutual interest. I knew I could start making the world pretty one girl at a time! Fashions is art that we wear every day and live our lives in. Unless you live in a nudist colony, clothes are something that we must wear every day. The beauty of that is that through clothing we have the opportunity to express a part of our personalities and ourselves. I love beautiful and functional design of all types whether it be......

Why I Love Football

...žrtvujemo u rasprave, sukobe, svađe u vezi sa tom neobičnom delatnošću? Pretpostavljam da ima više odgovora. Neko se prazni kroz posmatranje igre, izbacuje svoje dnevne frustracije, kod kuće i na poslu ga ne vole i ne poštuju, pa, bar, negde da bude svoj, jak, autoritativan; može da se nadgornjava, svađa i prepisuje po novinama, raspravlja po kafanama, objavljuje svoje misli na blogovima. Neko se kladi, i tako popravlja kućni budžet. Neko beži u snove, kao kad gleda film ili čita knjigu. Evo moj slučaj: ja, recimo, više volim da gledam loš fudbal nego loš film. Loš film nikad ne postaje bolji. A rđava ili osrednja utakmica može se pretvoriti u čudo. Dovoljan je jedan trenutak, nekoliko sekundi, čas, hip. Sednem, na primer, da gledam finale Lige šampiona, igraju Mančester i Čelsi, u Moskvi. Niti posebno volim jedne, niti druge. Ja sam, lično, voleo desnu nogu Dejvida Bekama. I levu nogu Dejvida Bekama, što bi rekao Hju Grant u božićnom remek-delu „Ustvari ljubav“. Ostale sam poštovao, Hjuza, Šeringema, naravno Skolsa, a razume se i Aleksa Fergusona. Poštovanje, to da. Ali, ne više od toga. I, povrh svega, pojavio se Arsenal, do Vengera sasvim nezanimljiv tim, od Vengera - tiha patnja svakoga ko misli da je fudbal umetnička forma. Odmah ću reći, za sve Fergusonove ili Ulijeove i Benitezove titule, Murinjove sisteme, za sve one što me ubeđuju kako „umiranje u lepoti“ nije smisao fudbala. Nego šta je smisao fudbala? Titule? Lova? Moć? Ne, smisao fudbala je u igri, a......

Why I Am a Formalist

...appeals to me is like asking whether or not I want the recipe to the food I really like. Yes, the food still tastes good without knowing the details, but it makes it even more delicious when I know them, and I can understand why it tastes the way it does. The formalist approach to literary analysis gives you more insight to understanding the piece of literature as a whole. Similarly, when you eat something, such as a slice of pizza, you are eating many parts of a whole. Dough, cheese, marinara, and pepperonis are examples of these parts. Relatedly, these components of the literature could be things like historical context, author, and/or symbolism. Biting into that mouthwatering pizza would not be the same without all of those ingredients. It is better to understand where all the tastes are coming from. Knowing why the author writes the way he or she does or knowing how the setting affects the characters’ values can really make a difference in your ability to comprehend and break down all of the little details. It is these things that make reading more enjoyable, more so than just reading what is in front of me. With the reader response method, I can get much more meaning out of literature and sometimes even more meaning out of life. The formalist approach does not appeal to me because I do not just want to see something at face value. In short, the pizza would not taste the same without all of the different flavors, so why would I not find the recipe and figure out......

On Why Love Is a Promise

...On Why Love Is A Promise That God Expects Us To Keep…And How He Knows That We Can Have you heard that ” Love is a promise, not a feeling”? Hard to believe when the world about you is filled with songs that say the opposite these days. “Whatever feels right at the moment” is what you hear most often. But when does a broken heart ever “feel” right? When does a “broken” conscience ever let you sleep really peacefully without having to do something distracting to make it go away? Entertainment, addictions, even the approval of the those around you who aren’t really looking through what you’re doing will not eventually make up for what’s missing: real love. The kind of love that only God has made us to want and need in order to feel whole. This love is deep and abiding, encompassing the real passion that its poor substitute tries to get along without in this world. It is relentless in its pursuit of our heart and all the distractions and the false relationships we heap up between us and it show that we cannot get along without it. It won’t let us go in spite of our bad behavior. Why? Because real love is a promise, not a feeling. God created us to express love that way. Expressing anything less, no matter what temporary heights you reach, robs everyone, including yourself. You see, God, made us to be highly motivated to want the promise much more than just the feeling alone. It is the only way to make the whole thing last and get every last best drop of those precious feelings...

I Love You

...you remember that day we first met? I could not stand you. You just kept going on and on about how my favorite football team lacked so much talent. The amount of time we spent arguing that first day we met makes the amount of time we have been together so ironic yet so worth it. All the times we spent together walking whether it was from school or from your house allowed our relationship to develop so strongly. The long hours of phone conversations we shared together taught me a lot about you and your intentions. In spite of all our disagreements and petty fights, we seldom held grudges against each other and managed to find ways to forgive each other and it amazes me that we are still going on strong. Our shared experiences have surely guided me into becoming a better and stronger person. Being the main motivation in my life, helping me become a better basketball player, as well as keeping me away from the negative influences in my life are few of the many reasons as to why I treasure your presence in my life. Motivation, the most important aspect in what many individuals need in their lives, the one feature I lack absolutely none of because you are in my life. You never fail in finding ways to motivate me in my academic work. For example, you make sure that I complete all my homework assignments before I even think about touching an Xbox controller and only you know how addicted I have become to playing Call of Duty. More importantly, I have always wanted to become a......

I Love Lucy Loves Stereotypes

...I Love Lucy Loves Stereotypes I Love Lucy is an American television series from the 1950s following the Lucy and Ricky Ricardo family. Ricky’s in show business and Lucy’s the housewife that tends to drive him crazy with all the trouble she gets into. Episode 23 in season 2, “Lucy Hires a Maid”, Ricky notices how overwhelmed and tired Lucy is with all the house chores and caring for their new-born son. He sends in a note to the employment agency for a maid but leaves the responsibility of interviewing and hiring her to Lucy. Lucy caves in to the first woman who arrives and this maid, Mrs. Porter, is the opposite of what they need; she eats all their food and is no help with the baby. Both Lucy and Ricky are terrified of her but in the end Ricky calls her up and fires her. Messages about gender in I Love Lucy illustrate that women should work inside of the house and men should work outside of the house because women are caretakers and men are money makers through Lucy’s status as a mother, Ricky’s status as breadwinner, and Lucy’s inability to act in a business fashion. Gender roles are very obvious in I Love Lucy, as Lucy acts like the “ideal” American housewife; she does not have a professional job and puts on a dumbfounded face whenever Ricky talks about business, politics, economics, or anything that does not relate to housework. Lucy takes complete care of Ricky Jr, their son. In episode 23, during season 2, Lucy tries to get Ricky to be the one to take care of the......

Why I Love My Strict Chinese Mom

...Sophia Chau-Rubenfeld tells her story of how her mothers ”tough love” parenting methods raised her into a strong and independent girl who can make her own decisions. 18-year-old Chau-Rubenfeld thinks her rearing was good, and decided to write an official essay back to her mother, where she tells about how good it is to be raised by a so called tiger mom. She admits that her mum was very strict but that is only something she is very happy for to this very day. Text 2 "Let them eat pizza: Parenting guru's recipe for bringing up children" by Sdr. Bryan Caplan tells us a whole different point of view on the raising of children. Caplan claims, that children should be able to do whatever they want. He thinks that parents are trying too hard to raise their kids into succesfull adults. Text 3 In the ”Summerhill ­ a radical approach to child rearing" by A.S. Neill is a General Policy Statement taken from the Summerhill School’s website. Neills opinion is like Dr.Bryan Caplans. He thinks that parents are pushing their children too much and have too high exspectations. He also talks about children’s creativity, which is hard to keep up, when all the other subjects at school fill up all the time. 2. How does A.S. Neill engage the reader in text 3? The General Policy statement is taken from the official website of Summerhill School. So it would be obviously a good thing to say positive things about the school: ”I would rather Summerhill produce a happy street sweeper than a......

Why I Will Wed

...Elizabeth Wurtzel: Why I Will Be Wed - NYTimes.com http://nyti.ms/XBIyo5 SUNDAYREVIEW | OPINION Getting Married Is Easy By ELIZABETH WURTZEL SEPT. 20, 2014 I DID not expect to fall in love at 46, and I did not expect to plan a wedding at 47. Except that I always expect to be surprised. I would love to say that I don’t know why I never got around to this until now, but that would be a big fat lie. I never got married because who would want to? I was the worst girlfriend ever. And yes, I am the crazy exgirlfriend you hear about. I had no regard for time of day or time of year or time at all. Perhaps I just had no regard. It’s not like I called boyfriends at 2 a.m. because something was wrong: I did it because I liked to talk in the dark when there was nothing good to watch on TV anymore. I also called when something was wrong, and something was always wrong, because I could work my way into serious bother about something said in passing between the appetizer and the entree the night before, and that would turn into obsessive thoughts and long, intense conversations that would stretch across business hours and interrupt meetings all the next day. I needed — always absolutely needed — to get things resolved when it was not at all convenient. I called so repeatedly that I was impossible to ignore. When technology enabled me to be demanding in many formats, my long voice mail messages became longer text messages and the longest emails. I was......
