    I mean.. after having to eat probably 10 pizzas to get to this point, after so much pizza tasting I can only imagine tasting the best pizza would be really underwhelming for these guys at this point. The irony of making the best pizza, is your sick of eating pizza already.

    This was the sweetest video series I've ever seen 😭A wholesome group of people creating a wholesome pizza together! The Italy trip, the part where Molly steps in for Andy when he's sick, the gratuitous Brad content! I loved going through this journey with them... Ugh! 💖

    Chris referring to the mortadella's "unctuous bottoms" did not get the attention it deserved.

  • Katie

    Here are other suggestions:

    Burgers: Bread, patty, sauce (others?)
    Ramen: Broth, Noodles, meat, toppings (could be other noodles like pho)
    Cake: Cake, icing, filling, toppings
    Chili dog: Bun, dog, chili
    Pasta: pasta, sauce, (other stuff, idk)
    Salad: Leafy mix, other vegs, protein, dressing (lol no)

    • Katie

    Claire's praising of Brad is just so cute and balanced by her being so frustrated with him most of the time. I feel like if you were on a plane and they had the seats on either side of you it would be the funniest flight ever.

    While I will not argue that that is a perfect pizza, to you, the reality is the perfect pizza is a subjective measure. With that being said, if it's not a pepperoni pizza then it's not the perfect pizza.
