It’s one of those magical paces on earth. I seriously believe that to be true.
I think I got it right this time. Some time back, I wrote about Wegmans (past stories can be found here) and the slices and story I wrote about was a bit goofy. It just didn’t click like I hoped. Maybe I was trying too hard. And the anomaly was that their pizza was not up to par. That’s going to happen. That’s also not going to make me stop going here….
As a matter of fact I go to a Wegmans at least 5 days a week. At least is the operative word, because sometimes it feels like I go there more than once a day. That does happen.
For the sake of life, and things in general, I wanted to keep this as simple as possible. It’s November. We’re already so busy to begin with. The holidays are fast approaching. What a trite thing to say, but it’s true. For all the commotion that comes our way, there’s plenty of room to keep things as even keel and as comfortable as possible.
Pizza is at the top of that list.
Wegmans (more about their amazing story here) knows good pizza. A visit to multiple locations verifies that. They’ve been consistently great to amazing. Maybe an understatement.
I’ve shared pizza with good friends, with family, and myself. Their a growing supermarket chain, but no matter how big they get, it keeps feeling like home.
Their pizza has a familiarity and a simplicity that feels familiar. It takes me back to places, and then it only takes back to a recent place. Yes, like the last time I visited. Not everything is that dramatic for me, I promise…
If you truly judge a place by their cheese alone, then Wegmans can do no wrong. What a perfect recipe of the most simplest ingredients. I think the most important ingredient however is soul, spirit, and enthusiasm. Having a wonderful crust doesn’t hurt either. A strong base and foundation culminate into an all around winner.
Their blanca is the same. The seasonings, the olive oil, and the ricotta on such a perfectly heated crust is the stuff of beautiful. I love white pizza and can sometimes be critical of how some places make it, but they nailed it. My personal and humble opinion is that it’s the most difficult of pizzas to do right. Yes they did.
What I love is that their Sicilian Style is self-serve. Try saying that a few times over. And featured today was the Buffalo Chicken. It may be heavy and thick for some, but that’s the beauty of choices. I enjoyed it but know I could make at least two meals out of this. You know the main ingredient in buffalo chicken, so I don’t need to repeat them. I highly recommend.
I highly recommend Wegmans in general. Pizza notwithstanding, they have a commitment to the best quality food and the best everything. I’ve always had good experiences here from grocery shopping, their pharmacy, their cafe, the hot food bar, the sandwich shoppe, the cheese market, the deli, the seafood department, and everything in between. Trust me, there’s a lot in between that it may take a bunch of visits, and then more to get it all in.
There’s no need to get it all in now. The journey is the best part. It’s one I intend to continue on and revisit many times over.
I love it and I’m willing to bet many of you who are fortunate to live by one or have visited, can say the same.
I love Wegmans and I’m so grateful for all the good it brings.
Peace Be With You.
