The Magical Mystery Tour Is Comming To Take You Away (To Flavor Town)

One of the fist things that any self respecting, male glutton does when moving to a new town or city is hunt for the best slice of pizza. Having a good pizza option is the foundation of what will make or break a new home. Missing my favorite Mama’s Pizza, that specialized in making garlic and grease the primary components of their offerings, my wife introduced me to a few places around my new home. A few of these places, while decent pizza options, never really could match my expectations.  

Something had to change, and it had to be me. No longer would I have the pools of garlic saturated butter left on a barren pizza pan to soak up on saved crust.  One place my wife loved was Mello Mushroom, where she could get a pizza that had a traditional red sauce and topped with spinach, feta, tomatoes, and drizzled with pesto.  And this was okay, I suppose, but never quite did it for me, making the excitement I had for pizza wane. I cannot recall the circumstances, perhaps I had made my feelings for her favorite pizza known, or perhaps she could feel my dismay for her choice, but we had made a decision to break free from routine, and try another option.

Probably based on the fact that it offered a jalapeno kick and a pesto base, the Magical Mystery Tour (made up also of button and Portobello mushrooms, spinach, and feta ) grabbed my attention.  After my first slice of this pizza, I was hooked. The combination of meaty mushrooms, overbearing garlic from the pesto, and the spice of the jalapenos offers a wonderful mélange of flavor.  Perhaps it is not so much of the juvenile treat that Mama’s offered, but it is quite wonderful.

Being lent friendly,and not being a fish sandwich, is also a bonus during this lent holiday, with the wife out of town.
