Even Bad Pizza?


Normally, I love leftover pizza for breakfast. Especially with eggs.

But I’ve hit the limit. Grease-stained cardboard boxes are taking up most of my fridge. Even my car smells like burnt mozzarella.

See, I’ve been reporting an article on the best pizza in Putnam. So I’ve been trolling around the county, stopping at every spot I can find, from strip malls to trattorias. I’m almost done with the reporting — and I think I’m close to deciding a winner.

But the road has been a long one. I certainly can’t eat the whole pizza by myself, especially if I’m trying several places in one afternoon. So, I order one, have a taste, and wrap it up. At first, I wondered if I might look suspicious, but so far, no one has batted an eye.

I’m sure everyone has their favorite ‘za joint. But you’ll have to wait until Putnam magazine publishes Sept. 20 to find out the results of my quest.
