The Quest for Pizza in a Cup Continues
Blog is still trying to devise the perfect recipe for Pizza in a Cup, the imaginary delicacy consumed by Steve Martin's character in "The Jerk." Last time, pizza ingredients were combined with angel hair pasta. The resulting concoction tasted like...angel hair pasta covered in pizza ingredients. It wasn't worthy of the name Pizza in the Cup but was later dubbed pizzghetti.
In a second attempt, gnocchi, which more closely has the texture of dough, has replaced the angel hair. These potato noodles are the dark matter of Italian cooking. Each, individual gnocchi (should that be "gnocchus"?) is the equivalent of 50 normal noodles. Gnocchi seems to expand in your stomach one of those dinosaur sponges. If you eat too much, you're liable to explode. If you ever prepare a dish with these noodles, proceed with caution.
The sauce, consisting of Ragu Pizza mix, cheese and pepperoni remained the same from last time. The end result looked like marbles covered in cheese but tasted like something intergalactic. The flavor is hard to define but Blog's stomach later felt like an overinflated balloon.
Second attempt? Unmitigated disaster.
The quest for Pizza in a Cup must continue unabated. This researcher will discover the prefect recipe, despite the hell cries of his guinea pig stomach. This whole new taste sensation will conquer the globe. Just you wait!
