USA Today Chooses Reed Spring PIzza

You can't have pizza without a garden being part of the process. Our long time garden friends, Paul Lear and Flavie Mirat, who have Reeds Spring Pizza Co, in Reeds Spring, Missouri, received a great honor this week. (I've been crowing about their outstanding pizza for 2 years, brag, brag...) USA Today, this past weekend, chose ONE outstanding pizza place from each state and published 51 of the most outstanding pizzas in America. Reeds Spring Pizza has been chosen as THE BEST PIZZA IN MISSOURI. Congratulations Flavie and Paul. It's a well deserved honor.
Reed Spring Pizza Co. made the front page, bottom, of USA TODAY.
Pictured above in the article on the front page of the newspaper, although you can't see it clearly, is their famous Galline Pizza, my fav. The ingredients are: basil pesto, their special house blend tomato sauce, grilled chicken, bacon, sliced tomatoes, cashews, shredded Parmesan and topped with herbs. Yummmm!
That's their pizza again at the beginning of the article.
The article and survey is for 51 of the greatest pizzas in America. Fifty states, plus the District of Columbia. That's a lot of competition.

You can look it up online to see what pizza place is the best in your state!
In case it's hard to read (or you've forgotten you can click on any of my photos to enlarge them), here's what it says:
Missouri
When the Highway 13 bypass opened in 2003, hordes of travelers on their way to nearby Branson virtually abandoned the Mayberry-like village of Reeds Spring, which has since become a mecca of art and good food, including the best pizza in Missouri. Reeds Spring Pizza Co. features a house-blend tomato sauce, olive oil and the owner's special herbs. One unusual topping: cashews. The Seven Cheese Pizza includes mozzarella, cheddar, feta, shredded Parmesan, Swiss, provolone and blue cheese. 22065 Main St.; 417-272-3507; reedsspringpizzaco.com

What's so special about Reed Spring pizzas? An outstanding, homemade crust, a house blend sauce and fresh ingredients.

There you have it, gardeners who hit the front page with their good food. I'll leave you with a couple of my favorite quotes:

Life Is Too Short,
Break The Rules, Forgive Quickly,
Kiss Slowly, Love Truly,
Laugh Uncontrollably,
And Never Regret Anything That Made You Smile.
Life May Not Be The Party We Hoped For,
But While We're Here, We Should Dance.... (anonymous)

And this one of mine:

It doesn’t cost anything to love others. 
Do it freely, 
Love is never wasted, 
Even when it appears it might be.
