With no conflicting lunch appointments and a short work week, we decided that we should check another letter off the lunch list today. C it was. It always takes a bit of wrangling for the 3 of us to get on the same page about where to eat, but we ended up in Eddie's silver Exterra and headed for... Christopher's Pizza Company.
Frank: When I go to a pizza place, especially for lunch, I’m looking for a spinach calzone. I’m not into this idea of splitting a pizza because who wants to be forced to eat someone else’s topping preferences? Most of my friends prefer meats on their pizzas while I like veggie. Thus I order my own personal calzone. When we sat down and looked over the menu at CPC, I was bummed (no calzones) but decided to try their 9 inch Fancy Pants pizza. The upside: I loved my little pizza. Great crust - crust that wasn’t too sweet (this is the first mistake pizza places make – too dang much sugar in their crust!). Pine nuts, goat cheese, spinach and olive oil makes for a fancy pants pizza indeed. Bonus: the check came almost right away after we were finished. (This is another of my pet peeves – having to wait an eternity to PAY for lunch and get on with life.) They have nice servers as well. The only downside: Their straws were too short for the glass and I had to keep fishing mine back out. All in all, I like this place.
