This is one of my favorite times of year. The weather is in between cool and hot. The sun is shining all of the time although we do have the occasional spring shower. AND….IT'S...
Pizza goes with everything

Pizza goes with everything
I have a confession to make. I love pizza. I really love pizza. I love all of the styles and varieties that are available. New York, Milan, Chicago, Detroit, Naples….you name it. If the city is known for pizza, I have had it and I'm a fan. My family has even opened a pizzeria. I'm a bit like the old Green Eggs and Ham guy. I could eat pizza it here or there, I could eat it anywhere! One of the most romantic memories that I have of dating my husband features a quiet dinner of pizza at a cozy little mom and pop place near our home. That particular shop specialized sort of NY/Naples hybrid pie that just sent me over the moon. It was this love of pizza that excited me about this post with RaceTrac. They wanted me to go eat pizza! Now eat I did because there is fresh pizza and so much more at RaceTrac. We hope that you enjoy this Pizza goes with everything post.
I know what you may be thinking, because if I'm going to be honest, I thought it too. How good could the pizza be out of a case at a gas station? Here's the thing. RaceTrac is a whole lot more than just a gas station. I mean, yes they sell gas. And yes, they have the attached convenience store like most places. But that is where the similarities end to your average spot. These guys are making food fresh in house! That pizza? It is built and cooked fresh in house throughout the day. And you know what? It's pretty darn good. It also happens to be really convenient. Just walk into the store and it is ready to go in the case. RaceTrac offers flavors like pepperoni and meat lovers, and for the first time they are offering limited run pizza. The offering right now is a Buffalo Chicken pizza slice.
This slice (cut from a 16″ pizza btw) features traditional Frank’s Red Hot Sauce as the base, 100 percent whole milk cheese and crispy breaded chicken; all topped off with ranch dressing. I tried it for lunch today and I can report that it was quite tasty. The slice was hot, the chicken still fresh (no dried up pieces), and the flavor was spot on. I washed the slice down with a frozen Coke and a hot, baked in store cookie.
There is more than Pizza
Now I didn't plan on getting the cookie. But there it was, staring at me from the shelf above the pizza. It was still hot from the oven and was really good. I don't know why I was surprised to find that fresh cookie. That's what RaceTrac is about; offering freshly made product at an incredible value. A lot of freshly made products. There is fresh pizza and so much more at RaceTrac. You could say that you can have your pizza and…whatever.
The day I visited, RaceTrac had a plethora of options on the Roller Grill. There were of course the Nathan’s Famous 100 percent Premium All Beef Hot Dogs, but there were also things like Taquitos and Tamales. I had never seen fresh tamales offered before, and I later learned that this is an item that's unique to RaceTrac. It is wrapped in a traditional corn husk and filled with seasoned pork. Delicious.
I went for a chocolate cookie for dessert, but RaceTrac also has something called Swirl World. This is a spot where you can treat yourself to frozen ice cream and yogurt, complete with toppings. If that doesn't satisfy your sweet tooth, check out the fresh doughnut case.
In addition, there are offerings of sandwiches and a whole lot more in the deli case. Those sandwiches by the way are delivered fresh to the store every morning. Did I mention that these people are serious about fresh food?
The Morning is Covered
RaceTrac has the start of the day covered as well. Those machines in the picture above? They grind and brew coffee to order, just like a fancy spot. The staff here is also baking biscuits fresh every day to create some wonderful morning sandwiches, complete with eggs, meats, and cheese.
The Bottom Line
No matter what you are craving, or what time of day it is, RaceTrac has a freshly made offering that will satisfy your hunger (or thirst). From pizza to burgers and more, this is truly a one stop shop. So gas up the car, grab a slice, and enjoy. Because at the end of the day, you will find fresh pizza and so much more at RaceTrac. We hope that you enjoyed this Pizza goes with everything post.
