Why do we call our pizza parlor Wall Street Pizza? Well, We opened a small pizza parlor in Newport, Oregon a few years back featuring New York style pizzas made with all fresh ingredients and freshly made hand thrown dough. As the years went by our scrumptious pizzas grew to such popularity that we were reminded of stocks selling on the stock market as people crowded in to enjoy the food and friendly service. In 1988 we opened Wall Street Pizza in downtown Gresham, Oregon. In 1998 Wall Street Pizza in Sandy was opened. The response was tremendous! Thanks for being our customers!

Garlic has been an English word ever since Anglo-Saxons sent the ancient Britons scampering into the Welsh hills. The Anglo-Saxons saw it as a kind of leek laec with a spear or gar growing out of it. Thus garlaec or garlic as we spell it today. Wild garlic has long grown in churchyards and along roadsides in England, but did not appear in English cooking until 1548 when it was introduced from the Mediterranean where it is abundant. The English, used to perfumes and lavender water, found the King of Herbs too pungent for their sensitivities and to this day use it little. Italy, the birthing place of pizza, uses much garlic as do most countries on the European continent. Italy's historic ancestors, the Romans, were zealous in spreading the use of garlic all over Europe along with their roads and legions. Allium, the Latin word for garlic, was adopted into French ail, Italian aglio, and Spanish ajo. All of these cultures use garlic extensively. Garlic has a large place, too, in Chinese and Indian cuisines. It is essentially a flavoring suitable for civilizations that have no inhibitions about strong smells.
A clove of garlic, which is a major seasoning ingredient in WALL STREET PIZZA, is itself a wonderful object. If you thump the clove with the heel of your hand, the naked fruit jumps out of its delicate jacket. Extract the juice or chew the clove whole and you have a powerful medicine that cures many ailments. A clove of garlic was given to each of Egypt's pyramid builders to strengthen their hearts and ward off diseases. The ancient athletes of Greece chewed a clove before their muscular trials. The plague that ravaged Marseille in 1720 was put down with the help of an antiseptic compounded of garlic and vinegar. And today? Garlic, when carefully and thoroughly chewed, excites a strong appetite and fully stimulates the gastric juices so that better digestion occurs. When you are just coming down with a sniffle, if you will slice a garlic clove lengthwise and position it between your cheek and gum for the night, you will wake up minus your sinus infection. Bacteria and garlic do not like one another. There is much evidence that garlic functions the same way in the blood stream, even fighting influenza. Garlic fights arteriosclerosis by ensuring that the cholesterol moves through your system rather than depositing in your arteries. Most believe sufficient health benefits are derived from eating garlic in you meals and pizzas, but for those who just can't get enough of the pungent plant... there are garlic pills.
