Battle of the Pizzas 2.0

By Wednesday, November 21, 2012

You remember the first Battle of the Pizzas?

Well, we did it again. I guess you could say My Other Half and I are quite competitive with each other. Particularly about food. When we get gelato, it’s a competition to see who picked the better flavour. The same goes for any other type of food/drink. So it makes sense that make-your-own pizza night would turn into an all-out battle.

Just in case you’re wondering, we used store-bought crusts. You can get them in package of two at the grocery store or packs of three at Costco. They freeze well too.

Battle of the Pizzas 2.0


½ cup Chipotle BBQ Sauce
½ package of pizza sauce (which came with the crust)
2 large chicken thighs, cooked in BBQ sauce and thinly sliced
Thinly sliced red onion
Sliced red pepper
Shredded marble cheese


It’s pretty simple – just mix the chipotle BBQ sauce and the pizza sauce and then layer the rest of the items. Some people add cilantro to their BBQ chicken pizza – I didn’t, but I’m sure it would be good.

My Others Half’s Pizza (practically identical to the last pizza)

Pizza sauce
Crumbled bacon
Sliced mushrooms
Finely diced red onion
Shredded marble cheese
Hot salami

Last time, both pizzas were amazing (and honestly too different to compare), so I declared it a tie (although My Other Half insisted he won). This time, however, the winner was crystal clear. My pizza BLEW HIS OUT OF THE WATER. I’m not even exaggerating.

Seriously, how can he think his pizza is even in the same league as mine? You cannot compete with that chipotle BBQ sauce. Or chicken thighs baked in BBQ sauce. It was perfection.

His, on the other hand… was boring. I’ve had a million pizzas like it, and they’re all uninspiring. Typical jock pizza, if you ask me. And it was heavy on the onions.

My Other Half is a talented cook, so I’m quite enjoying this defeat. Although – predictably – he’s still walking around claiming he won. Darling, you surprise no one. Of course you think you won. My taste buds don’t lie.

Oh, what’s that? You want a re-match? Fine by me. Bring it on.
