Nom Nom Pizza

Pizza is a popular national pastime. Whether people are in for a movie, are having a party or just don’t want to cook for the night, hot pizza is favorite toppings is always a hit. However, ensuring that a customer got hot pizza wasn’t always possible. It can take up to 30 minutes to deliver a pizza depending upon how quickly a pizza delivery person can drive safely and how far away a customer lives. Up until the 1970’s this was a difficult task to perform. Pizza could arrive cold. Not only would the customer be unsatisfied, but the customer would not likely order that pizza again.

It wasn’t until the 1970’s that delivery bags for hot food was extensively used to keep pizza hot. With this amazing form of casing designed to keep pizza and other foods hot, pizza sales increased and the food that so many love today quickly gained in popularity.

Pizza has come a long way too. If it weren’t for delivery bags, it can’t be certain that we’d have as many varieties of pizza that we do now. We’d probably still have thin crust and deep dish, but all the specialty pizzas that exist today might not have evolved had pizza not become so popular. If it weren’t for pizza bags by Covertex and other companies, our pizzas would still be arriving cold, guests would not be fulfilled and parties would be duller. People certainly wouldn’t be able to phone in an order and have it delivered.

The Pizza Story

I didn’t cook anything special on my birthday because we are on a really tight budget. Hubby picked up a box of pizza on his way home. There were eight slices and each slice can make you feel full. The kids love pizza to bits so I know a single serving is not enough. I gave them another slice and cut it in half. Hubby and I had one slice each. I set aside three slices for breakfast the following day.

I reheated the pizza in the morning and give each kid a slice. Hubby and I were supposed to share the remaining slice,  but he decided to give his share to me. I know the kids still want more, so I let them have the last piece. The kids refused to take the pizza because it was their birthday treat for me.

My kids really know when to make me smile and cry at the same time. I appreciate their being thoughtful…not a pair of moissanite earrings can make me happy like that.
