I take pizza very seriously. We all should. It’s one of the most wonderful foods ever assembled by the great gods of old, and like Prometheus gifted us fire, we were also gifted the ability to make pizza ourselves. Jimmy Fallon decided to take that fire and use it to light a candle. Practical and efficient but not exploring the fire’s true potential. Jimmy Kimmel, on the other hand, took that fire and used it to power his backyard pizza oven and make one of the most delicious-looking pizzas I have ever seen.
(I think I’m losing track of this metaphor.)
It all started when Fallon posted a video of himself making a perfectly acceptable homemade pizza. However, he took it a step further by saying it was the “best pizza ever.” Kimmel disagreed, fired up his backyard pizza oven (the dream), and proceeded to make Fallon’s pizza look like child’s play.
Seriously, Kimmel’s pizza looks so good I was practically drooling as he applied basil and extra parmesan. It seems that Fallon got in a little over his head with this one. Like Icarus, he flew too close to the pizza sun, who in this case is Kimmel? Right?
Which pizza did you think looked better and why was it Jimmy Kimmel’s? You can text your choice to 877877 and donate $5 to No Kid Hungry. Now we’re having fun AND being charitable!
