Pizza is usually the most beneficial thing in the universe, but sometimes pizza can actually let you down.

Pizza is my happy food. There is no question about that. It’s my go-to when I’m happy, or when I’m sad. It’s always there for me to offer a non judgemental slice.

But what happens when it doesn’t?

If I go for a few days without eating a pizza (God forbid), I start going into withdrawal. My body craves the cheesy goodness of a hot pie. I need my fix, but not just any pizza will do. Even when it’s bad, pizza is usually still pretty good, but sometimes it’s not. That’s a pretty harsh thing to say, but it’s true.

Sometimes I just don’t have time to go to my favorite spot,, and sometimes I just don’t want to spend the money on a high quality pizza. As such, I have to settle for the things that resemble a pizza  in name alone. Yes, I admit I sometimes eat “fast food” pizza and crappy sub-standard frozen pizzas.

While this does the job of temporarily relieving my craving for pizza, it often leaves me feeling sad and disappointed in myself for not doing the right thing. My stomach may be full, but I’m left feeling empty. In this case, the right thing to do is to eat a real pizza from a real pizzeria.

It’s a horrible to lower yourself to the point where you feel so desperate you must consume a pizza from the generic joints or the freezer. It’s just not right, but it happens far too often in our society. It’s very sad for anyone to endure, never mind the terror and disappointment of dealing with this as a pizza junkie.

Being a pizza junkie is hard. You’re always seeking that next great pie. When you don’t get that ultimate pizza, life just sucks. There is no way around that point.All you can do is keeping hoping that “best” pizza is around the next corner.

If you know anyone addicted to pizza, help them. Treat them to something desirable. Take them to a nice pizza restaurant and buy them the best the menu has to offer, even if you’re not hungry. 

It’s the right thing to do…


Note: If you’re concerned about my well being, I happily accept donations so I can buy the best pizza my city has to offer. I accept gift cards too.
