Homemade Pizza

My husband is a pizza fanatic. If he had his way, he’d eat pizza all the time; when I’m out of town, I have to clearly specify that he’s only allowed to have pizza once for dinner and must eat something else every other night of the week. To indulge his cravings, I’ve decided to make pizza at home. It’s actually pretty easy to make a few balls of dough and freeze for later use. And I also figure it’s a little healthier than delivery. With the recent discovery that…

Weeknight Dinner at Rustico

I had heard about the great happy hours at Rustico (Ballston location) many times, so it was one of the places on my list to check out. Now, given my condition, I wasn’t going there for the drinks, instead, I was going for the food. Walking in for dinner on a weeknight, the place was packed with happy hour revelers. It didn’t take us long to get a table though and from looking around me, it seemed like everyone was ordering pizza. So then and there, I knew I had my…

Dinner at Two Amy’s Pizza

So for round 3 of my Neapolitan Pizza eating tour, I decided to go to Two Amy’s in DC. I’ve been told countless times that I need to go and try out their pizzas; the hype is definitely there, people were swearing to me that this was the best pizza they’ve ever had. So my husband and I decided to go on a little dinner and movie date night after work and finally see what Two Amy’s was all about. In order to make a fare comparison, we had to…

Neapolitan Style Pizza at Pizzeria Orso

I think I’ve discovered that I’m totally partial to Neapolitan style pizza; I love the doughy soft crust that’s been cooked for 60 seconds in a super hot clay oven. And as of late, I’ve been a huge fan of the Margherita pizza. So for dinner over the weekend, we decided to give Pizzeria Orso a try. As any true Neapolitan style place, they only use San Marzano tomatoes; I was also impressed to learn that their mozzarella is local, from Blue Ridge Farms in Leesburg, VA. One thing to…

Neapolitan Style Pizza on Wilson Blvd

For this month’s edition of family food adventure, we went to Pupatella neapolitan pizzeria & friggitoria. Rick had been there before and thought it was worthy for FFA. One thing I would like to call out, you may want to check out their website for the operating hours, and they are closed on Sunday and Monday — which we learned after driving there on Monday night and sitting in the parking lot trying to figure out where else to go for dinner since Plan A didn’t pan out! We were…
