Quick tip pizza gang: Stay warm in the winter by cranking the oven up trying to make pies at home! Doughn’t be afraid to make your own pie – after some work, it will be most rewarding pizza you’ve ever tasted!
Another way to beat the cold is to get a job… at a pizzeria! I got to ham (and pineapple) it up with Nora, Sean, Peter and Eric who comprise local sketch heroes American Breakfast. They will be appearing at THE FINAL CAMP WOODS + on Thursday, December 6th at 8:30 pm We met right before one American Breakfest-er’s shift at Dominic’s in Voorhees, NJ to decimate some pies and talk about Ninja Turtles, Mary Kate and Ashley, and touching family memories. Get with it!
Pizza Pal Joe Moore: How much do you like Pizza?
Nora: A lot! Less since moving to Philadelphia. This city has terrible pizza.
Sean: If I were stranded on a desert island, I would eat pizza if I could find some.
Peter: Quite a bit.
PPJM: What are your favorite toppings?
Sean: Almost always plain. Occasionally tomato & basil.
Peter: Ham + Pineapple
Eric: Sausage/ham & onions
PPJM: What is your favorite pizza place in the world?
Nora: Luigi’s in Matawan, NJ—Thin crust rectangular pies.
Sean: My place of employ.
Peter: Dock Street Pizza in Baltimore.
Eric: Pizza Brain.
PPJM: What is your favorite use of pizza in Pop Culture?
Nora: Mary Kate and Ashley’s rendition of “Gimme Pizza” from one of their direct-to-video movies, slowed down until it sounds like the apocalypse.
Sean: The huge pancake scene from Uncle Buck. The large pancake sort of looks like a pizza.
Eric: In Ninja Turtles, it served as a lesson about addiction.
PPJM: What day was Pizza Day in your house growing up?
Sean: Friday! Also, Saturday through Thursday.
Peter: It was whenever my parents didn’t want to cook. That night the dog fed like a king on crusts.
Eric: Whenever dad drank too much to be trusted with boiling water. So Wednesday.
PPJM: Tell me one fond pizza memory you have.
Nora: I black out in the presence of pizza.
Sean: For my 9th birthday, my parents threw me and my twin sister a pool party! At the time I suspected that I was adopted. I didn’t find out anything until much later, but that pool party was fun!
Peter: I remember my school had a reading program where you got a free Pizza Hut personal pan pizza for reading 10 books or something like that. I read 80 books during the program.
Eric: When mom left dad.
PPJM: Anything else you’d like to add?
Nora: Pizza for Breakfast!
Sean: I currently work at a pizza place! I deliver for Dominic’s in Voorhees, NJ.
Peter: Trader Joe’s sells pizza dough for like, $1. Get 10 of them, plus sauce and cheese, and you’ve got a party.
Eric: No anchovies ha ha ha ha ha!
Do yourself a favor and head to THE FINAL CAMP WOODS + to see American Breakfast alongside Daring Daulton, We’re Matt Weir, and Camp Woods… and be sure to leave the anchovies at home!
