Thanksgiving is here again, and what a wonderful time of year it is! If you are anything like us, then one of the best things about this time of year is the food. Yes, we love pizza. But we also love turkey, stuffing, cranberries, and pies of the pumpkin or pecan variety (or apple – who are we kidding, we just love pie!). We also appreciate the mindset that many people try to employ at this time of year. Practicing thankfulness and gratitude is one of the best ways to combat the negativity and the stress that also comes with the holiday territory. So keeping in the spirit of thankfulness, here are a few of things that we are most grateful for at Vincenzo’s Pizza of Saugus.


No gratitude list would be complete without you, our friends and neighbors in Saugus and the surrounding communities. After all, we can only do what we love (make delicious pizza) because of you. You make it all worthwhile, allowing us to make gooey, delicious pizza pies, and make some great memories along the way. Thank you, Saugus!

Water Buffalo

Yes, we are grateful for water buffalo. You cheese aficionados out there have probably already guessed why that is. We have to give thanks for these amazing creatures because it is from them that we have received the glorious gift of mozzarella cheese. Much of the mozzarella cheese in the U.S. is made from cow’s milk because we don’t have water buffalo in this country (which is a bit of a bummer, don’t you think?). But true, Italian mozzarella is made fresh from the milk of water buffalo. So, to our fine bovine friends: We who are about to dine, salute you!

gratitude-picFusion Cuisine

This might sound farfetched, but hang with us. We are grateful for fusion cuisine for a few reasons, but since it’s Thanksgiving, we are particularly grateful because fusion allows for such grand creations as the Thanksgiving Pizza. You read that right. While we don’t have a Thanksgiving pizza on our menu, we sure like the sound of it. Imagine it: A hot, flaky crust topped with turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and stuffing. Yes, please! Feeling adventurous? Maybe a layer of sweet potatoes with turkey and cranberry sauce. The possibilities are endless. For encouraging creativity (and not wasting leftovers), we are thankful to fusion cuisine.

Pull Up a Chair

We hope you enjoyed reading this as much as we enjoyed writing it! What are you grateful for this holiday season? Why not pull up a chair and discuss it with us over a hot, melty, cheesy and delicious slice of pizza? Come into Vincenzo’s today, you’ll be grateful you did.
