President Barack Obama loves Chris Sommers’s way of making a pizza pie. So much so that the man was flown to the White House this week to whip a few pizzas up for the First Family. The news isn’t making those in Chicago that happy.
Sommers is from St. Louis. When President Obama was campaigning last year in his town he happened upon Pi’s Pizza in the Delmar Loop where the pies are made and loved them.
This week Sommers boarded a plane with 20 pounds of dough and three gallons of pizza sauce to cook his specialty at the White House kitchen. Sommers was serving up his pie to 140 guests Friday night.
The Sun quotes Sommers:
Chris was due to cook lunch at the White House yesterday, reported People.com. He said: “It’s surreal. It’s a huge honour.”
He made have made folks outside of Chicago happy but those in the windy city aren’t really sure about this ‘foreign policy.’ As Politico quotes Marc Malnati, owner of 30 Lou Malnati’s Pizzerias across the Chicago area.
“I like his economic policy — I think he’s going to get us out of trouble. I like his foreign policy — he’s making friends around the world. His pizza policy is going to have to change.”
