Where’s the Beef?

wpid-20140509_123611.jpgWhen I saw the Pizza Burger at Maxim’s I knew it was something I had to try.  Looked to be a 1/2 patty sandwiched between pieces of pizza, what could go wrong?  Of course if I was going to try it the “optional” sweet peppers were a must.

So one day when the guys were headed to Maxim’s for lunch I asked them to pick me up a “Pizza Burger”.  Now I like Maxim’s and have had many good lunches from there, but this was not quite what I expected.  The term “burger” was used quite loosely as the sandwich contained no beef.  Rather than a hamburger patty it was a 1/2 of sausage between 2 slices of pizza.  Now this may be fine for some, and quite excellent for others, but for me it was a disappointment.  I was lured in by the thought of a juicy burger, covered with Italian sweet peppers and instead I got a glorified sausage patty.

I fully realize the fault is mine for not asking.  Had I asked I would have ordered their amazing Meatball Sub.  Now THAT is a sandwich, but unfortunately a matter for a future posting.

A Few of My Favorite Things…

My favorite pizzas off Chet & Matt’s pizza & wing buffet include these tasty offerings. The creamy and delicious Mac and Cheese pizza is a unique taste and very good.

Also pictured is their BBQ Chicken pizza. Though most everyone now offers something like this, none I have had are as good. The shredded chicken, bathed in Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ and smothered in a mixture of cheeses is a flavor combination I find hard to resist.

Stacked beneath some more BBQ Chicken slices are a few slices of their Chicken Alfredo Pizza.  Though I prefer the BBQ, I have yet to find a place that served a better Chicken Alfredo.

Rockets Roasted BBQ

Every once in a while you stumble upon a pizza that is really note worthy, and the Rockets Roasted BBQ pizza from Chet & Matt’s Pizza is just such a pizza.

The menu describes it as:

Really great BBQ chicken and Chet & Matt’s cheese blend. Optional items: red onions

What it fails to mention is that it’s shredded chicken, not the normal chunks, and that it uses Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce.  I don’t know about you, but Sweet Baby Ray’s is one damned good BBQ!

Though the menu says the red onions are “optional” I say otherwise.  They are such an amazing addition to the overall flavor that they should be considered mandatory.

What a Tease

Chet and Matt’s Pizza in Sandusky, Ohio calls this “Pizza Teaser”, but it’s actually my son’s favorite pizza. This sauceless, multi-cheese topped “appetizer” is seasoned with garlic and olive oil and whatever else Chet picked to make it such a tasty treat.
