If you grew up in the 1970′s and 80′s then you remember an epic historical event that rocked the world. No, I’m not talking about Watergate or The Test Tube Baby, or the U.S. hockey team beating out Russia in the Olympics (though that event was made into one of my all time favorite movies… “Miracle” check it out).
Those things were great, (well not Watergate) but that’s not the event to which I refer. I’m talking about… drum roll … the invention of the Taco Pizza by Pizza Hut! Do you remember it? I sure do!
My brother and I pestered our Mom to take us to Pizza Hut to try this culinary marvel, non stop until she relented. There was even an annoying little jingle that television channels 4, 7 and 13 (that’s all there was back then) played EVERY single commercial time. It went like this (to the tune of the Mexican Hat Dance Song)… clears throat… ahem…
It’s a pizza looking, taco tasting, pizza, a pizza looking, taco tasting, pizza, a pizza looking, taco tasting, pizza. New Taco Pizza at Pizza Hut. :D
The pizza that I made for dinner tonight harkened back to those carefree days and brought back many fond memories of me eating this Mexican, Italian, yet all American dish with my little brother there under the red roof of our town’s best and most magical, restaurant.
If you have never tasted a taco pizza… well, you’re in for a treat. You’ve gotta make this. You must! Reagan cried “Mr. Gorbechev, tear down that wall” while we were pestering our Mom “Mom, can we have taco pizza, can we , can we, can we? Oh please, oh please, oh please, oh please!” You’ll be glad to know that both Gorbechev and our Mom said “Meh. Sure why not? Anything to shut you up.”
So celebrate freedom and yummy stuff. Make one tonight.
