Sir Pizza - It's Crack for Rednecks!

Clearly only a pizza for royalty.
So I've been debating writing this for sometime because I suspect based on what I'm about to say; those of you who haven't had Sir Pizza will shrug your shoulders and write it off. After all, it's not really pizza in any traditional sense of the word. The pepperoni is square, the crust is non-traditional, and it's contrary to all the hip and cool pizza bistros these days, where they pile on exotic vegetables on your pizza. At Sir Pizza the veggies are square chopped up bits and they match the tic-tac-toe board of slices. I mean from the pictures, and the description I'm giving you, you could almost classify it as frozen pizza... but it's not. There's something magical about Sir Pizza's pizza, something that separates it from normal pizza. In fact if I were craving a normal pizza, I wouldn't want that.... but this... this is almost a food group of its own. It's one of those mad unique flavors that you could never get anywhere else. I mean, don't expect exquisite... expect, fat and greasy, expect dragging home one of these huge pizzas pulling out the beer and making it a night of it. That's this pizza's niche.
A hunk, a hunk of pizza goodness.

So here it is. When I go to Sir Pizza I order the "Deluxe" which was always ironically easy enough to remember since my former employer went by the same name. It's basically their version of a "supreme" or "extravaganzza" or "all-the-way". Price out the door is generally about $23.00, and it's gargantuan! Much larger than most pizza chains larges. It will easily feed a family of four, if not twice that. The first thing you'll notice is the pizza is cut in squares, not slices. There is also no edge on the crust... and this is where it gets good. The Deluxe comes in generally at 3/4 to 1" thick covered in tons of cheese meats, and chopped veggies. It's really quite extraordinary. The crust takes on this buttery, oily flaky deep-fried texture. The best thing I could explain what comes close is if you were to make pizza at home and go buy several pounds of various deli meats and cheeses and toss it on a thin crust and then gently deep fry it..... It's really out of this world.

It's like this. Ask most adults if they like McDonald's and they'll say "no"... but every now and again if they were to be honest.... even the most profound foodie gets a hankering for a "Big Mac". This is the "Big Mac" of pizzas. It's drippy, greasy, and a lot of food.

The Sir Pizza in Siler City has been my port of call for years, but there's also one in Burlington, and High Point. If you happen near one, give it a go, you might just get hooked. I will warn you, it's a staple of us here's redneck-diet.... it's like crack for us rednecks..
