*I’ll be blogging whenever I eat pizza, but it won’t always be from Chicago. Check my REVIEWS section. It is organized by location.*
I lived in and around Chicago, IL until end of 2011. My love for pizza started at a young age, and has now grown into an obsession and a hobby. I enjoy pizza of all kinds and am never hesitant to try new things, except mushrooms . If you don’t find me at a pizzeria, I’ll still be talking about my latest craving or blogging about a place I recently visited. I am a traveling consultant for Hitachi Consulting and enjoy the opportunity to try new food in new places, especially when recommended by the locals. Feel free to follow me on Twitter @SLICEofFELICIA. I love visiting my sister, spending time in Boca with my parents and our dog, Jack, seeing my boyfriend in Bermuda, and my friends in Chicago.
Life with a pizza obsession
The Past Growing up, my extended family used to get together at Barnaby’s pizza in Northbrook, IL. My high school friends all claimed that Lou Malnati’s was the best ever. My mom’s dinners were great, but not when I had a pizza craving. I would leave my last class in high school early to buy pizza at every after-school fundraiser. And my dad never had trouble saying yes to ordering an Il Forno’s Deerfield pizza at 10:00pm on a school night.
Study Abroad 2009 While studying abroad in Vienna, Austria, my pizza cravings persevered.
I found my Pizza Kasé at the local grocer, ate my way through Italy with my boyfriend in the form of pizza, and was definitely known as the pizza girl. In Europe, I expanded my horizons. I enjoyed bruschetta and capresé salads; both variations of pizza, so they fulfilled my cravings and are a bit healthier.
