It’s hard to believe that the year is over and I made it through 52 pizzas. Some weeks were definitely tougher than others. It was often hard to figure out when in our schedule we could fit in “pizza night,” but alas, we persevered and ate our way through the year in pizza.
We kept a ranking of sorts for each pizza we made. By combing our scores, the top 11 of 2011 in were:
Peanut Butter and Chocolate Dessert Pizza
Mushroom, Onion, and Swiss Pizza
Chicken, Bacon, and Ranch Pizza
NY Style with Four Cheeses Pizza
Spinach and Garlic Pizza
French Bread Pizza
Naturally, there were some that I scored high but the husband didn’t, or vice versa, so those didn’t make it to the list. Neither of us were surprised by the pizzas that ended up being our top pizzas of the year. Some of them, such as the BBQ pizza and the spinach and garlic pizza, were old standbys before so of course they’d be near the top of our list.
When I asked the husband what stood out for him he almost immediately said the thin crust we started using toward the end of the year. He’s a big fan of cracker-type crusts so he loved it. I also enjoyed it and will gladly add it to our pizza rotation in an effort to mix things up. It is a nice change from a “normal” crust.
I’m somewhat sad to see the year come to a close, but at the same time, I can breathe a sigh of relief. I’m still going to make pizza in 2012, but not a new one every week. I will probably update this website periodically as I do try new pies.
