Friday Night Links: Pizza Edition

Post image for Friday Night Links: Pizza Edition

I have been searching for New York pizza in Los Angeles since I arrived here nearly 42 years ago.  I have found it several times in various locations in and around Los Angeles.  The most recent was terrific little place run by an ex New Yorker just five (5) miles from home.  The crust just tastes different when it is an authentic New York pizza.  I know there is other good pizza and I enjoy those too.

To digress just a little, we went to an old style Italian restaurant that we have not been to in thirty (30) years to celebrate my son’s birthday.  We went here on my son’s suggestion.   We had a pizza as an appetizer and to my surprise was pretty good.  It was not New York pizza, but it was good.  Will we be back?  If we are in the area, definitely!

What is your favorite pizza?  Is it New York or Chicago?  Just remember that the pizza we love is an American version.  There is nothing wrong with that, but it is different from what is served in Italy.  Favorite foods are important to all of us.  Fortunately, I found some of the best or favorite articles of the week.  This makes a good segue to today’s picks for Friday Night Links.

The following articles caught my attention:

Fat Guy Skinny Wallet - Planning a Financial Diet – Eat Healthy and Spend Less

Finance Fox  - How Do you Tip?

Free from Broke - Is YOUR Employment Picture Brighter?

Free Money Wisdom - The California Sun Tax and How I Break it Down

Frugal Confessions  - Frugal Mother’s Day Ideas

Rules

The selection of blogs is up to the committee of one established by krantcents as a representative of the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers. That committee can be influenced by meaningful comments, signing up for my RSS feeds, backlinks, links, trackbacks, Facebook Likes, Twitter, Re-tweets, Digg, StumbleUpon, delicio, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks and other social media. If you plan on creating a single purpose political action committee (PAC) to buy advertising on my blog to solely influence the committee, please go ahead! Please understand it will not influence the results.

I read more than five hundred (500) articles a week and I highlight just five (5) in my Friday Night Links.  Good pizza is good pizza and we can agree with that!   Thank you for reading Friday Night Links Pizza Edition.

Larry,

Thanks for including me in a great roundup.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Oh, and NY style pizza any day vs. Chicago deep-dish pizza :)

Funny how pizza choice is so black and white! :) You’re welcome, tipping seems like a timeless discussion. It should be updated periodically.

Well, living in Jersey, I would definitely pick our version over a deep-dish, or any other “fancy” types.

When my wife and I were in Chicago for the Financial Blogger Conference last year, we had no desire to try their pizza out.

Thanks for the link, KC!

Of course, I prefer what I grew up with in NY/NJ, but I have tried Chicago style pizza once. It was good, but very different. You’re welcome.

I’m more of a NY thin crust pizza guy than a Chicago deep dish. Can’t beat a good pie! What are your favorite toppings? I enjoy pepperoni and sausage, meat lover I guess you could say. Time for dinner!

My traditional choice is mushroom or veggie, although I found a white pizza (no sauce) that is one of my favorites too.
