I have a friend who lives in San Diego and every time he goes to the airport, he stops by Bronx Pizza for a couple of slices. He says he loves this place because it’s authentic, the people are actually from New York, and they even yell at you if you ask stupid questions. Isn’t that awesome? Well, since we happened to be on Washington Street near the airport one day, we just had to give this place a try. The pizza at Bronx Pizza really was quite delicious. I especially love how the slices were so thin that you really did have to fold them over in order to pick them up. We tried a slice of pesto and a slice of sausage pepperoni. Both were delicious! Plus, they didn’t even yell at us … we must have asked all the right questions!

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!
