Birthday Pizza

"What do you want for your birthday dinner?"  asks my son Gregg.  "Pizza from Yeti's, please!" 
"I thought a Yeti was another name for Bigfoot. Is this an April fool joke? "

Nope, it's where they make pizza right.  It true, it's in Stoughton, in the very boring, ugly, tiny piece of strip mall on Page St.  Weird name yes, campy inside, yes....they even have a Yeti's with Viking horns on its head as part of the decorations. They make pizza the way they make it in NJ where I grow up.  Hand tossed, cut into triangles, which you fold and eat with your hands.  When I first moved to WI. back in 1980, we went out for pizza and they brought to our table a round pizza cut into tiny squares. The crust was stiff.  People used a knife and fork.  I thought I was on another planet.  Of course I have been living here long enough now to appreciate many kinds of pizza pies but I still love it the way I learned it out East. This is also the very first year in my life where no one played an April Fool joke on me.  I think that is a good sign!
