Bloggers Love Pizza!

Boy, I’ll tell ya…nothin’ beats spending a Monday evening in a cozy local pizza parlor with some of my favorite “blends!” :-D

Tonight, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Emily, Jen, & Katie for some good, hometown pizza. But not just any pizza; it was my favorite pizza from DeFazio’s!

Jay and I have visited DeFazio’s a few times in our day, and it never disappoints. In my opinion, this stuff is seriously the best pizza goin’ around town! So after chatting with these ladies a couple months ago about pizza, I knew I needed to introduce these ladies to the best of the best.

We started things off by getting a big salad to share. I love DeFazio’s salads not only for their dressing, but for the phenomenal cheese chunks they add on there. Soooo soooo good!

The four of us then got two pizzas to share which took us all of about five seconds to decide on. It totally helps when everyone is on the same page in the flavor department! ;) We ordered both of our pizzas with DeFazio’s Organic Whole Wheat dough, which is totally on point.

Pizza #1 – Goat Cheese

Imported Goat Cheese, Red Roasted Peppers, Red Onions, Olives, Fresh Tomato and Mozzarella Cheese

I first got to work on the Goat Cheese; and by “got to work,” I mean “remove the olives

Olives are just one thing I still can’t acquire a taste for…blechh! :oops: I also had devoured a slice (+ another 1/2) of the Eggplant Florentine, but just now realized I never took an actual photo of it. I was too busy trying to snap a close-up of the fantastically fresh spinach…

…but my camera was being fussy…and I was hungry, so I let it be. Trust me, it was phenomenal!

And so was being able to spend the evening with these lovely ladies! I’m looking forward to seeing them again in a couple weeks. :-D

Time to go get cozy on the couch with my boys!

Question for the Evening:

What’s YOUR all-time favorite pizza??

    I think you already know my favorite………Testo’s by far over anywhere else. I love pepperoni and red and/or green peppers on it. Their peppers are the best!
    I would like to try DeFazios, so where is it and I’ll give it a try at some point. It will be hard for my husband though, to tear him away from HIS favorite~Valenti’s!

    Looks like you ladies had a fabulous outing & meal. Nice.

    Pizza’s definitely my all-time favorite food and I love all types of it. But if I had to pinpoint the best pizza eating experience, it would have to be a traditional margherita from Naples Italy last July. Mmm.

    I had SO much fun with you ladies tonight!! I loved DeFazio’s, but I think my favorite local pizza is Smitty’s in Voorheesville. That’s my hometown pizza place! I need to bring you guys there next time!! :-)

    That place looks awesome!

    My favorite pizza….ooh boy, I don’t know, I love mostly anything with cheese and sauce…If I had to choose it would be Donatos Pizza where I used to work, I love their thin crust!

    If we eat pizza in a restaurant, I usually order margherita. However, my favourite kind is my brother’s home-made pizza – awesome cheese and tuna! Other toppings I also love on pizza are veggies (such as zucchini and pepper), corn, bacon, sour cream and eggs. :)

    This has nothing to do with your post, but last night I was watching The Sing- Off and there was a girl in one of the groups that looked JUST LIKE YOU! I swear she could be your long lost twin :)
    I believe she was in the group called Pitch Slapped. You don’t have singing in your genes, do you?

    The eggplant florentine looks phenomenal! My all time favorite pizza is Lou Malnati’s Sausage Pizza! It is your ultimate Chicago Deep-Dish Pizza. Mmmm, if you are ever in the Chicago area you should most definitely check it out!
