I'm always happy to see that the Hugo's tradition of putting French dressing on pizza lives on.
At our house, we always have a bottle of French dressing for when we have takeout pizza or frozen pizza. It's our homage to the Biloxi restaurant. We wish Hugo's would come back. Some restaurants have established variations on the Hugo's tradition.
At Pop's in Biloxi, they will ask you if you want French, Catalina or Ranch dressing. Catalina is our preferred choice if a place has no French, but Ranch is a taste we don't want to acquire for our pizza. My grandson, Wade Byars, made a face and cried when he tried Ranch on pepperoni pizza. He said, "I want that," pointing to the bottle of French dressing.
He calls it "sauce" and can't get enough of it. He's 2 years old.
The last time we were at Tom's Extreme Pizzeria in Ocean Springs, they had the Hugo's Special on their menu. It has pizza sauce and Catalina mixed for a base and Catalina swirled on mozzarella.
At McClain's in Mandeville, they have bottles of honey on their tables. Honey on pizza? Maybe.
Bees like honey. The B's, in this case the Bialas and Byars families, will wait to see if they like honey on pizza.
