Reno Chicago- Pizza Walk 2015

Our first stop on an epic pizza crawl in April began with Reno Chicago. This location was once another pizzeria that I wrote about in 2011, but it didn’t last. Reno is the hottest new spot because it is known for great breakfast food AND pizza. It was a perfect morning stop numero uno. We started with homemade bagels and cream cheeses and a few pizzas as well.

Both pizzas and bagels were well-received. The butternut squash pizza was a fan favorite, based on survey results :). Our crew really liked Reno and many said they would come back for more, and even for the outdoor seating!

Thanks again to the awesome team at Reno for accommodating our large group and keeping the water and coffee comin ;-). Perfect start to our pizza tour.

DeNunzio’s Brick Oven Pizza and Grille- Sea Isle City, NJ

I love Brie and Mike, and their family owns DeNunzio’s Brick Oven and Grille in Sea Isle, NJ. I visited last April to check out pizzas before I started making my own, and I just spent a lovely weekend on the shore hanging around the shop and catching up with good friends. I am addicted… NY slices, nicely topped pies, breadsticks, pizza rolls, whatever works in pizza form, it worked for me. Here is a gallery of photos from my first and second visits to the island. Had such a great time, enjoyed the hospitality of the Denunzio’s, making pies with Chris, and taking advantage of the shore life!

Giovanni’s- Boca Raton, FL

Family pizza time. We ordered a spinach and onion pie from Giovanni’s. Very fluffy and flavorful crust. Didn’t make me feel miserable as most deep dish pies do. Would order again, but I would probably char it in the oven to give it an extra crunch. Overall a good deal!

Olio Pizzeria- Santa Barbara, CA

This pizzeria was recommended by many people as there are two nearby locations Olio Crudo Bar and Olio & Limone Restaurant. Great traditional dishes and some fun variations here. I celebrated my birthday here and visited again on the last week of the project I was working on. The pies weren’t amazing but the atmosphere was great and the overall menu with wines were lovely.
