Halfway through another Sunday well spent watching the Patriots win, we needed some pizza to balance out the beers we consumed. My boyfriend was really in the mood for what we affectionately call garbage pizza, so we went through the options. Pizza Hut was too far. I don’t like Papa Gino’s. Domino’s was closed for some reason. Garbage pizza just wasn’t in the cards, so we decided to be better people and try out another neighborhood pizza place. Continue reading

Let me set the stage for this one. It’s midnight on a Thursday night, I just lost a bunch of money betting on the NFL season opener, and I need a serious pick me up. I remember that 2 blocks from where I’m staying in Las Vegas, there is supposedly a Di Fara Pizzeria at Caesar’s Palace. I cross the street to the Cosmopolitan, lose some more money playing my way through the casino, and eventually begin my hike to Caesar’s with vodka cranberry in hand. Stop to watch the Bellagio fountain show. Enter Caesar’s, then try to track down the pizza that I’m on this entire mission for in the first place. I finally find it and… wait what? It’s a take out stand in a brightly lit food court?

On football Sundays, when we spend 10 hours rooting for our fantasy players, there is nothing I love eating more than buffalo chicken dip. Yes, even more than pizza. Obviously I love pizza as a football food too, but buffalo chicken dip is a special treat that I can’t justify eating any other time because it is so unhealthy. Of course, that’s also what makes it so delicious. My homemade buffalo chicken dip is pretty damn good, so I thought I’d share the recipe! Continue reading
Digiorno is arguably the king of frozen pizzas. “It’s not delivery, it’s Digiorno” is a part of our pop culture lexicon. Digiorno’s classic rising crust pizza is like your favorite college sweatshirt – comforting, no frills, and reliable. The crust is twice as thick as it needs to be and really just serves to provide empty calories that make the pizza easier to share. The cheese melts well together but doesn’t have much taste. I suggest adding grated parmesan before baking. The pepperonis and sauce give a decent kick to the pizza. Best paired with cheap beer.
Since I’m on instagram a lot, I see a lot of NYC pizza in my feed that makes me want to immediately hop on a bus and spend a weekend there chowing down. I’ve knocked a few off of my list, but here are some pizzas that I’m still dying to try. Continue reading
Since I was stranded at Reagan / DCA on my way out of Washington DC, I decided to head over to Terminal C and check out &pizza. You can customize your own pizza by picking toppings / sauce / ect, or just pick one of their specialties. I ordered the Maverick pizza, which came with mozzarella, tomato sauce, 39 day aged pepperoni, salami, Italian sausage, parmesan, and oregano oil. Continue reading
In Poland, zapiekanka is a street food that’s pretty similar to pizza and can be found in cities like Kraków and Warsaw. Traditionally, zapiekanka is served on half of a baguette with cheese, mushrooms, ketchup, and scallions. Depending on where you go, you can customize the toppings so that it’s like a more “traditional” pizza, like above. They’re very cheap and easy to eat on the go. Per wikipedia, zapiekanka originated in the 1970s and has recently made a comeback due to the millennial generation’s love for late night snacks after a night of partying. Sign me up!
