Wellman’s Pub- Des Moines

Hidden treasure here! We were quite pleased with the pizza at this local pub in Des Moines, Iowa (Dined back in April). The weather was gorgeous (albeit a bit windy), and Jon, Bridget, and I sat out on the back patio to share some afternoon bites.

Our pizza had spinach and onions and red sauce. A little too light on the red sauce, but let’s talk about the crust. Super thin, crispy, and well-cooked. We were all impressed with the flavors and the bake on the pizza. Pairs well with their extensive beer list :).

My friend Kristi was kind enough to photograph some gorgeous ZA in beautiful Portugal! Her thoughts are below:

First pizza we had is a white mushroom pizza “funghi” with truffle oil and arugula ontop. Very garlicky. Very delish.
Second was a Hawaiian with piña and jámon!
Both crusts were traditionally thin, perfect amount of crispiness!

I grabbed a slice because I couldn’t NOT try the pizza from this new brick oven on my way home from work!

It was alright… I’m not complaining.. actually makes me want to order a whole pie and try it sometime to do a proper review :)

Cantinetta- Miami Beach, FL

Overpriced food on Lincoln Mall is far too common, but this pizza was not too shabby. My sister ordered it and shared one of the slices with me!! Floppy cheesy pizza. I enjoyed the salty finish and thought there was a good amount of sauce to complement the crust and cheese :)

Bacci- Fairmont Southampton- Bermuda

I had a lovely meal with friends at Bacci at the Fairmont Southampton. We had some fun and shared 3 appetizers, a pasta dish, and a pizza. The Eggplant dish was a surprise hit! Definitely enjoyed that. The pizza wasn’t my favorite on island, but it worked well with our lovely spread! Great to get out to the other side of the island!
