I have been to this delicious, but unassuming pizza place before, but I never realized how close it was to Downtown San Diego and literally in my sisters’ neighborhood! My three sisters and I visited here for lunch after spending a relaxing morning at the beach. Since there were so many of us and even more varieties of pizza, we got to taste a total of 8 pizza slices! We each ordered one slice first then went back and each got a second slice since the pizza was so delicious and we were all so hungry after the beach!
Bronx Pizza is one of my absolute favorite pizza places because the pizzas are thin, but large; the toppings are fresh; each slice only cost $2.50; and the place is so busy that the pizzas are always being freshly made. They also always ask you if you want your slice heated and if you do, they take your slice and stick it back in the oven for a minute so your pizza is delicious and piping hot. Yum!

I always enjoy my trips back to the San Francisco Bay, as I am able to see many old friends from college, and I also love trying new food while I’m there! I took a short trip a couple months ago, and got to try Golden Boy Pizza, a staple in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco since 1978!
Golden Boy serves pizza either by the sheet or by the (rectangular) slice. Take a look!
A look at the sign out front. This place is quite popular and there is almost always a line, but thankfully it moves quite quickly!
A look at the inside! It doesn’t have much seating, but in my experiences, these types of small hole-in-the-wall restaurants often have the best food!
I forgot to get a close-up because I was too excited to eat, but look at the array of pizza in the store-front window! The flavors don’t change from day to day, and they only offer cheese, pepperoni, sausage, combo, pesto and the very unique clam/garlic!
Definitely give this place a whirl next time you find yourself in The City by the Bay!

Once in awhile, we have cool fundraisers to help raise money for the school. The money we raise goes into buying things for the school that we wouldn’t have otherwise like apps for our ipads, flags to represent each of our classrooms’ universities, t-shirts for the students, and paper among other things. The budget is complicated though, of course, so that side of things is always a bother, but fundraisers are fun! Two nights ago, we had a fundraiser at Peter Piper Pizza. We gave out tickers so students could get 5 free tokens and the school got 15% of the sales that this particular Peter Piper Pizza made from the people who identified themselves as bring with the school between 5-8 pm. While the place wasn’t packed, it’s always fun to get a chance to see students out of their uniforms and at a place of fun with their families. It wasn’t just the kids getting into the games and contests either … I’m thinking half the reason some of the parents bring their kids to these events is because they love it themselves!

Even though we had never visited the location that was here before The Attic took over, I have been hearing great things about both. I am so absolutely glad we grabbed dinner with some friends at The Attic though because the food was pretty awesome. I appreciate the relatively small menu because you can pretty much either order a burger or a pizza.
The Ivan is this place’s MVP and if you visit on a Wednesday night, you can get this amazing burger with a draft beer for just $10 … I mean, what a deal! The Hangover is like the Ivan on crack due to the bacon and fried egg. We also order The Veggie pizza, which in my opinion is not the best thing on their menu, but the next day, the slices were amazing. I guess they just make good next day cold pizza? Anyway, I think we might have caught them on a weird off night though because the food took absolutely forever to come out … FOREVER! Better luck for us next time … hopefully on a Wednesday night!

The opening of Pomo Pizzaeria Napoletana has brought another amazing fancy pizza place to Downtown Phoenix. It’s like Phoenix has become some kind of pizza hub. Anyway, I went with some friends to check this place out the other night and just absolutely loved it. I especially like reading about how the pizza oven is incredibly authentic and how each brick was essentially shipped from Italy. I loved how the owner guy or whoever he was brought us fresh oregano and Parmesan cheese in small white dishes. I loved how as we were getting ready to head out he then brought over free dessert – incredibly thin fried dough strips covered in powdered sugar. I loved how the pizza was so thin and the oven so hot that each pizza is only blasted for 60-90 seconds. And I loved how much the anchovies on my Napoli pizza were amazing!
What to order … that is the question!
Italian baseball team or something?
Time to eat!
