I often make quick travel stops because my project life is a bit hectic. I recently flew into NYC for 1 night and left Sunday afternoon to return to Texas. I had to find a way to try SOME pizza while also visiting my parents who were on a weekend getaway.
I stopped by Scotts Pizza Tours and joined them on two pizza stops in the Brooklyn area. I highly recommend taking one his tours because he is an energetic, knowledgeable, and fun tour guide & pizza lover. Continue reading Scotts Pizza Tours (April 2013)
The first time I ate at Serio was a few months after it opened in at the edge of the Roscoe Village neighborhood. After ~2 years, it was great to go back with Sara and Allison and learn a bit about the behind the scenes side of the pizzeria.

Here is a handful of personal pizzas from Extreme Pizza, a restaurant we came across in breckenridge. The place was empty so we were guaranteed attentive service for our large group of 13.

We walked into an order-at-the-counter operation. It reminded me of a food court Sbarro, where the slices are reheated after you order. Everyone ordered a variety of toppings/slices, and I went for the mozzarella, ricotta, & spinach calzone.
In the below pictures, mine is swimming in sauce. The food was fine for lunch, and everything was served on paper plates. Costs for slices were cheap, although my calzone ran higher at about $7.00. I wouldn’t say I loved the calzone, but it was satisfying for lunch. Garrett’s stuffed crust pizza was overwhelming, but he enjoyed it, and Harold’s heavily topped pizza was satisfactory. Judging by the photos below, it doesn’t look particularly appetizing. I don’t plan on running back here immediately… but at least we’ll know what to expect the next time around.

I took a 6:00am flight out of Dallas on Feb 15th, so I had to drive over on Valentine’s Day. I don’t love the ~2 hour drive from Temple, TX to Dallas, but I strategically planned for a pizza experience. Although I had not read about Il Cane Rosso on any of my [...]
