So Have you ever seen a Shamrock Pizza ?
It occured to me during Valentines Day at 'Aurelio's Pizzeria' in La Grange offering up a heart shaped Pizza for the romancers amongst us.
So walking along one day, it occurred to me , with all the Irish heritage in the area and south suburbs, why is it I've never seen a Shamrock Pizza anywhere?
After googling around a little it was clear nobody did one. It seemed a 'No brainer', especially after all the Parades, block parties and St. Patrick's day or even just an Irish birthday bash or wake, that it would seem really neat after a cold day out supporting your favorite parades, why would you fight the crowds in an Irish Pub when you have a long table at your favorite Pizza Place, a picture of green beer or a Guiness or two and few Shamrock pizzas and in the comfort of your own neighborhood too.
So I went to My Favorite Pizza Place in La Grange and spoke to Miguel the Kitchen manager and explained to him an idea I had. I went out and found a large Shamrock for him, cut it out and we made up the dough, cut it out and played around with a few ideas...and Begorrah!" would ya look what popped out of the oven"? We Played around with a few more ideas , and you could basically make one up now with any ingrediants you want.
I chose, cheese on all of it, 1/3 green peppers, middle 1/3 , just cheese, and 1/3 tomatoes so that I could have the flag tri-color effect! and a wee lil shamrock cut out of a green pepper garnished in the middle.
So If you want to take over the best Pizza house in the area and force it to go "green" for a day or two or a week!( "go ERIN'elio's ) then surprise all your friends and tell them where you are going to celebrate after the parade.
Now that our local girl from Western Springs- 'Bridget McMahon Fitsgerald' was voted Chicago's Parade Queen...so with that in mind and she was part of the inspirational idea behind this pizza pie. " The Paddy Pie " or " Shamrock Pizza" come on in and try and make up one with your own ideas too and post your ideas on your facebook and ours
