I'm struggling as a former Nebraskan I'm called to the alphacornes but I think we'd enjoy the saffron crabby corn. So I'm going to nab the crab but will switch if someone checks in late.

Congrats all EPs and EPCs! I would love to test the Corn Chowder Pizza. I'm a huge fan of corn pizza, and AJ's crust technique is intriguing.
