A went to San Diego with a friend of mine for an impromptu weekend trip. We ate lunch with my grandparents at Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza. I’ve been there before a couple of years ago, but it wasn’t that eye-opening then. This time, however, it tasted much better! I had the Duck Tacos, which were absolutely delicious, even if covered in a little too much sour cream. The flat breads (which you have to ask for) were also particularly delicious. They had just a little bit of a kick to them, which made them taste awesome, even better with some butter. Yay for carbohydrates!

So I’m told the best place to get real New York-style pizza is to go to a place named Ray’s. There’s actually tons of these places and it reminds me of how when people in Phoenix say, “If you want real Mexican food, you go to Filiberto’s.” Anyway, we finally got a chance to go to Ray’s to try some real New York-style pizza and I have to say, it’s pretty good. I’m not a huge fan of the folding the pizza in half business though so eating a very large thin slice of pizza was a little difficult, but overall, totally worth it. I like plain cheese the best!

When I first moved to the desert and heard about Peter Piper Pizza, I had no idea what anyone was talking about. Then I just assumed it was a regular pizza place with a Peter Piper Pickled Peppers kind of name, but boy was I wrong because Peter Piper Pizza is totally Chuck E Cheese minus the dancing characters. I was most surprised by the pan pizza there — it was actually really awesome, way better than I had expected. Everything else was pretty much expected in terms of the crawl spaces, games, tokens, and prizes.
Oh, but you might be wondering why I was at Peter Piper Pizza in the first place. It just so happens I was there for a 4-year-old’s birthday party! The funny thing is beside the birthday girl, there were no other kids there for the party!

After our not-so-deep dish pizza experience, we just knew we had to find some real Chicago-style pizza. A couple of weeks back, as soon as we told one of our friends that we were going to Chicago for vacation, he told us that we just had to eat at this pizza place called Giordano’s. We decided to take our friend’s advice and give the place a try. The place was so busy that as soon as you walked in and got on the reservation list, you walked over to the next counter where you put in your pizza order. Half an hour later when we were seated, the pizza was already almost ready for us and service was super quick. You think they know they’re incredibly popular? You bet.
Along with a small deep dish mushroom and sausage pizza, we also tried the cheese and garlic bread, which was really good, too. Both were incredibly cheesy so we got full really fast. I only one slice before I couldn’t swallow another bite of pizza — deep dish certainly fills you up real fast!
