The copy desk is obsessed with Teresa's Pizza. And rightfully so!
Anyway, this tale begins on a not-so-distant Sunday when Cheryl, a fellow copy editor, mentioned that she and Sean had ordered from Teresa’s Pizza one Saturday night. She could not stop talking about how good it was. In fact, she was raving about it while enjoying her leftovers from the previous night’s dining experience. It was the first time I had heard of Teresa’s Pizza, but I assure you it was not the last.
Fast forward to later in the week. A group of staffers started planning to order from Teresa’s Pizza at least a day in advance. Now, I feel it is important to mention that we take our food here very seriously on the copy desk; if we are going to order out, we often devote at least an hour to discussing our options and deciding where to go and what we want. It’s a problem. We know this.
Then, this past Monday, Robin me that she had enjoyed the pleasure of Teresa’s Pizza three days in a row! This seemed totally absurd; however, today when I arrived sans-previously prepared dinner, I should not have been surprised to hear Robin suggest ordering take out from — you guessed it! — Teresa’s Pizza. Considering the hype it had been receiving over the past few weeks, of course I consented. And boy am I glad I did.
At the semi-suggestion of my boyfriend (he got it last time), I ordered a meatball sub. Now, being Italian, I’ve had my fair share of meatballs sandwiches throughout my life. This sandwich, though, was phenomenal. They didn’t skimp on the meatballs like some places do, there was a perfect amount of sauce — which was deliciously flavorful, but not too sweet like some marinaras can be — and the cheese was the perfect compliment. The bread was not soggy from the sauce, the sandwich came hot, and the meal left me wanting more. Not because I wasn’t full, which I assure you I was, but because it was so delicious I didn’t want it to end.
Luckily I was able to steal a piece of pizza (sausage and black olive, a combination Dominic and I adore and is scoffed at by everybody else in the newsroom). This pizza was also absolutely delicious. It had abundant amounts of that same flavorful sauce I enjoyed from my meatball sub, ample toppings and delicious crust—the makings of an awesome pizza.
Now I totally understand my coworkers' obsession with Teresa’s Pizza. If you haven’t tried it, I suggest you do as soon as you can. You will not regret it. In fact, if you stop by the News-Herald around 7:30 one evening, you will likely find the copy staff enjoying dinner from there as I’m pretty confident we’ll be frequenting this fine establishment on a weekly basis.
