Tony’s Pizza Napoletana

Margherita Pizza

Margherita

They only make 73 of this World Pizza Cup winner a day! They make the dough by hand using caputo red flour and then proof them in napoletana wood boxes. For the toppings, they use san marzano tomatoes, sea salt, mozzarella, basil, and extra virgin olive oil.

Balsamic Pizza

Cal Italia

This pizza features four cheeses: asiago, mozzarella, gorgonzola, and parmesan. Croation sweet fig jam is distributed, topped with prosciutto, and then drizzled with a balsamic reduction, resulting in a wonderful sweet and salty combination. This was a gold medal winner on Food Network Pizza Champions Challenge!

the Goodwich

VEGAS. What does that make you think of?
Clubs, casinos, buffets, Fat Tuesdays, Earl’s, etc… am I right?

I honestly don’t think the buffets are worth it at Vegas, except Studio B. And the only thing good from Earl’s is their chipotle chicken avocado sandwich, but it’s given me tummy aches and indigestion all three times I’ve had it (from their bread or just something they use in their sandwich sad face). Fat Tuesdays are a yes though, especially the peach bellini hehe.

But I digress. Did you know some of the best food you can find in Vegas is located off the strip (like Studio B and Tacos El Gordo)? Correction: MOST of the best food is off the strip.

Next time you find yourself in Vegas, tell Earl’s to move aside because there’s a muuuch better sandwich place a short drive away. Just head downtown towards the Goodwich – a shack that’s located in a parking lot across a strip club!

Don’t be fooled by its location and appearance because not only do they have superb service, but they also have a creative sandwich menu that they execute flawlessly. (more…)

Blaze Pizza

A personalized pizza for ~8?

With unlimited toppings of your choice?

Andd it’s thin crust? Sounds great to me!

Blaze is like Chipotle or Subway but for pizza. However, with the inconsistency in the freshness of their ingredients, I say this place is A-OK. The first time I tried it, the dough was a bit too chewy and all the toppings slid off, so you might wanna ask your pizza to be extra crispy!

Caprese Salad

A recipe so simple, you’ll be wondering why you haven’t tried making this already!

I didn’t put measurements for the ingredients because I don’t think there is an actual correct “serving size” for this heh. You could make this as a hors d’oeuvre, snack, appetizer, or even as a meal! It’s something you could easily make more of if you need a bigger portion, but also something you could keep in the fridge for a couple days if you end up with extra. (more…)

Blue Line Pizza

This week was quite busy… in the sense of assignments, papers, meetings, and rain. Yup, no fun.

Did you all see how bad the weather was in the bay yesterday?

All those clouds gradually traveled down to SB last night and flooded my area too. I had neverrr seen it rain so much before! Winds went up to 40mph, so car alarms were randomly ringing and trees were falling in my neighborhood and on campus all night. Apparently, the rain went up to people’s knees, so some people took advantage of the weather and went kayaking in the streets LOL. As they say, when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade, right?

But the thing is, I’m not a rain person. Not. At. All. Rainy weather dampens my mood and makes life seem depressing and physically more difficult (walking, driving, etc). I just can’t make lemonade out of it! This week was already stressful in terms of school, so imagine my delight when it started raining here.

The only time I like it is when I’m dry and warm, indoors and in bed, with lots of blankets, hot tea/coffee, and Netflix. Ooh with some noodle soup too. Add some freshly baked sweet potatoes and brownies to all of that, and I’m in heaven~

It rained a little this morning, but it’s been gone for the day AND I’ve turned in all of my assignments so now I can finally say, HAPPY FRIDAYYY!!

Winter break is sooooo close, I can almost taste the cheese and cornmeal crust of my favorite pizza place in the bay…
