Let's Make a Pizza

hmmm. . .pizza Ed Fuentes

On behalf of Sunday's blogdowntown picnic, we (yes, in this case, "we") want to extend our thanks to Oscar Arce, the owner of Los Angeles Pizza Company who opened his kitchen just for our picnic and delivered 11 pies before heading out to Santa Barbara for Memorial Day.

Ed first got in touch with Oscar after finding a menu in his building lobby. He called up, asked some questions about the shop, forgot to order pizza, and then had to call back to get his delivery. He told me that he knew the pizza was going to be good from the second he saw it.

There seemed to be a consensus among those who attended on Sunday: the "Chavez Ravine" is a pizza to be reckoned with. Even the list of ingredients makes me hungry: red sauce, minced garlic, mozzarella, mushrooms, artichokes, goat cheese and pesto.

Here's where we get to the crazy part. Oscar's agreed to name a pizza after blogdowntown. Ed jokingly asked about the idea and Oscar took us up on it. So here's the question: What should we put on the blogdowntown pizza?

You can find the list of available ingredients on the menu. Dave, Ed and I will get together next week to take your suggestions and make a final decision.

And pick something good, ok? I'd hate to be the first blog with a pizza named after it and have it taste bad.
