Adventure #72: Pizza Delight

I might have guessed what to expect from their website, but you know me: always hopeful. In honor of Buzzfeed (and in honor of my time), I present you this brief Pizzadventure.

Ian and Karin ordered a pepperoni and mushroom pizza. It didn't look too bad!


But it was. 


The veggie rolls, with spinach, mushroom, black olives, and feta cheese, looked like giant, thin Hot Pockets. They were good!


But again, the pizza was NOT SO GOOD. Here it is, haunting us.


Ian and Karin disagreed about where on the spectrum of NOT SO GREAT this pizza should go, but they did agree that the crust was good.


DOG PICTURE!

Adventure #71: 360 Uno Trattoria

360 Uno Trattoria wasn't on my radar in the three years that Ian and I have been pizza adventuring and, after adventuring here I know that there is a good reason. It barely warrants a mention as a pizza place. The decor is upscale and the menu is mostly in Italian, but the pizza is far from classic.


The Sfincione, with Italian sausage, mushrooms, onions, peppers, & pepperoncinis, seemed to have too many toppings and none of them were spectacular. The Italian sausage was the best part, but the rest did nothing to highlight it, especially the canned jalapenos.


We agreed that the crust would have been better for a white, pesto, or chicken pizza as it had a very subtle flavor that could have been complimented with the right toppings. Unfortunately I'm not inspired enough to go back and try it until I hit the right pizza.


My official stance is "Meh".

Denver Adventures: Brava Pizzeria Della Strada

Ian was on vacation in Colorado last week and ate some pizza. Because he was on vacation, and because this is Austin pizza adventuring, these are going to be short little postcards.

I found this spot because it happens to be the best reviewed spot in Denver on Yelp. Now, we all know Yelp can be a fickle mistress, she can mislead you, she's a temptress. . .

I met up at this downtown establishment with my old friend Meagan and her man Steven. We had a good time (beeeeeeerrrr). Now let's get to the point.

San Antonio Adventure: Dough


Labor Day weekend San Antonio was host to WorldCon, also known as the World Science Fiction Convention and LoneStarCon3. While I was there, it wasn't a hard decision to hop on Yelp and find one of San Antonio's top rated pizzerias, Dough.
