Pizza is sort of a twisted, backwards culinary interpretation of the hotelling phenomenon. without going back to econ 100A with professor olney, i’ll just say that it doesn’t really matter what pizza tastes like because i’ll just go to the place that will “minimize the average traveling costs.”
victor jr.’s in culver city is just another point on hotelling’s pizza model. less than a block away from the office, it’s good for a working dinner. but after 7 pm, it’s dark outside and the overhead lights are off so it’s great that they’ll run an order down the street for us. they’re nice, they work hard, and they have bible verses, psalm 91 and first corinthians, on their pizza boxes. (so much for the analogy to sex.) everything is made from scratch, so a whole pizza costs anywhere from $13.75 for just cheese to $23.00 for the deluxe. they’re 18”, though, and at 8 slices a pie, it can feed at least 4 people. more if there are dieters in the mix.
so given the way i feel about pizza, there isn’t much to say about the fresh veggie and the pepperoni pizzas. the crust was crunchy-soft, the sauce more spicy than sweet, veggies fresh, pepperoni greasy, and on the company’s dime, i can’t complain.
