the Brick Oven Pizza, a.k.a. BOP. It's a freeform kinda place, but they are consistently great with the thin but sturdy pizza crust, with that little bit of cornmeal under it. I think we can all agree that the Platonic Ideal of Pizza is arguably a round pie dotted with pepperoni, or a round cheese pie, right? Well, the Brick Oven Pizza ideal is a lunchtime or late-night slice with over 50 toppings on it, and whenever I go to BOP, I always try to order a slice I never ate, so as to stretch my Platonic Ideal (and usually my stomach, because it's usually more than one slice). Last time was Canadian bacon, artichoke, and red peppers. That's out of a universe of choices listed on their menu as: Artichoke Hearts, Basil, Black Olives, Broccoli, Capers, Carrots, Cilantro, Cherry Peppers, Corn, Eggplant, Garlic, Green Olives, Green Peppers, Jalapeno, Mushrooms, Onions, Pepperoncini, Pesto Pineapple, Potatoes, Red Onions, Red Peppers, Zucchini, Spinach, Ricotta, Fresh Tomatoes, Sun-dried Tomatoes, Fresh Salsa, Bacon, Beef, Canadian Bacon, Chicken, Gyro Meat, Meatballs, Prosciutto, Pepperoni, Hot or Mild Sausage, Turkey, Salami, Spam, Cream Cheese, Cheddar, Feta, Fontina, Goat Cheese, Gorgonzola, Sour Cream, Soya Cheese, Provolone, Anchovies, Clams, Crabmeat, and Shrimp. Next time I'm gonna go HAM on some Spam on my slice. I asked if anybody really orders the Spam, and they said they get requests for it about a half-dozen times a week, and no, it's not the same person every time. You can totally order whole pies here as well, not just slices, but there's just something about the way BOP is set up that makes you want to get three different slices and do Spam on your pizza. Or potatoes, or gyro meat with salsa on it, I never had that combo.
