Miller Ale House- PA

Not my fave pizza… but I had to try it at the nearest restaurant to our hotel in Horsham, PA. Miller Ale House has 72 locations… but is far less superior than my old favorite spot BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse.

Looks unsatisfying and tastes the same as well. Can’t win em all!

Evo Pizza- Charleston, SC

When one loves pizza, one goes great lengths to get to pizza. The lengths were not too great, but Jon and I ventured away from the downtown area of Charleston and drove to the award-winning EVO pizza  in the Park Circle neighborhood. We enjoyed the famous Pistachio Pesto Pizza along with a Margherita. Well that pesto pie was nothing like I’d ever tasted, for sure. Loved the dough… awesome, fluffy, heaven. I was glad we had the margherita (and a beer or two) to balance out the flavors. Really glad we were able to make a stop here and would recommend it to the pizza adventurers!

Pi Gallery Bar- Chicago, IL

It had taken me so long to visit this new spot near Chicago Ave Brown & Red Lines… Pi Gallery Bar had a great sense of flare and comfort hidden in this upstairs space. Cute cocktail bar vibe. My friends and I arrived a bit early, so the oven wasn’t up to full heat, but I can imagine the pies would be that much better. Cute concise menu… with great menu item names. The girls liked the PYG Salad best. A variety of pizzas to share, and topped off with a smores/nutella-eseque dessert pie. Always better to enjoy pizzas with friends since you can try many more!!

D’Allesandro’s Pizza- Charleston, SC

This spot came from recommendations from locals (“Head to D’Als!”) while Jon and I were in South Carolina on vacation. We stopped by this quirky pizza shop before we left town and were enjoyed our experience. Had the lunch special pie which came with salads and a beer (if I recall) and enjoyed the cool decor. Solid pie, nothing too crazy, but could see why people recommended it.

This is the pizza stand! They pull down the paddle and it hovers over the table to hold the larger pizzas!

Nomad Pizza- Chicago, IL

My best friend Anna got married, and while we were getting ready, we couldn’t help but notice the Lincoln Park farmer’s market taking place outside our hotel! Friends recommended we check out the pizza truck “Nomad Pizza” so Theresa (MOH Extraordinaire) and I did just that! Family run group, nice people, and a lovely break from wedding prep! The bride and bridesmaids enjoyed the special treat as well!
