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!

Eatery A- Des Moines, IA

I was so excited to try Eatery A with Jon and his mom!! Also, it was mentioned in the “Where to Eat Pizza” book, so I couldn’t resist! The ambiance here was awesome. Open space, wooden furnishings, cool lighting, and a view of the oven from our seat. No problems! Had a tasty brunch-time cocktail and enjoyed my 1/2  1/2 pie. I liked that they were able to combine both for me. The crust was quite seasoned with spices which made for even the last bit to be exciting.

Beluga Sushi Pizza- Bermuda

There are some awesome sushi places in Bermuda, and one of them happens to serve a Japanese pizza. All I can say is that it is quite heavenly… with guacamole on top and crunchy goodness inside! Not truly pizza, but I’m not complaining!

La Trattoria- Bermuda

On National Pizza Day 2016 (and many other days), I headed to La Trattoria pizzeria with a small crew for lunch! I love La Trattoria’s italiano decor, and their service is efficient as well! This is the place we tend to go for a pie when we’re in town (Hamilton) and looking for some ZA.

On this particular occasion, we had 4 pizzas for 4 people… plenty to share! The thin crust here is great, and it’s fun to check out their wood-burning oven! Major points for that :) Below are some of the awesome pizzas we gleefully consumed this time around.

Fine Folk Pizza- Fort Myers, FL

When your friends open another pizzeria, you can’t help but be biased and full of excitement. I have a love/hate relationship with wanting to open a pizzeria myself… but am keeping that desire at bay lately. Anyways, Jon and I enjoyed driving out to Fort Myers over the Christmas holiday to visit our friends! Loved the vibe, the personal touches and the clever decor everywhere. Ate way too many pizza rolls! Can’t get enough of that and always cheering on my good friends who run a business the right way, take care of their employees & customers, and put their heart & souls into the craft.
