Finding Neapolitan Pizza Excellence At Pop’s Place- Ljubljana, Slovenia

Neapolitan PizzaBefore heading off on our trip to the Balkans, I had read that Slovenia had excellent pizza. This was in part due to the country being so close to Italy.

I pinned a few places in the capital Ljubljana for us to consider trying.

While walking around during our first day in search of one of the shops, we came across Pop’s Place, a restaurant which serves Neapolitan Pizza. Continue reading Finding Neapolitan Pizza Excellence At Pop’s Place- Ljubljana, Slovenia

Pizza
From our first visit…

Besides travel, pizza and baseball are a couple of my other favorite hobbies.

Traveling doesn’t always mean getting on a plane or even driving very far. Sometimes, we go on pizza tours, visiting multiple shops in one day.  We started doing this more over the past year or so, since we had been grounded during the pandemic.

While I believe New York has the best pizza in the world, great pizza can also be found in states close to home like Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Continue reading Did I Finish Pete & Elda’s XXL Pizza In The Whole Pie Eater’s Challenge?

While in Rome, Kim and I enjoyed lots of excellent pizza around the city. A couple of shops which stood out were Pizzeria Da Baffetto and Forno Campo de’ Fiori. (There are other shops we enjoyed who’s names I can not recall.)

While there are a variety of different styles, there’s now a new pizza option in Rome. Continue reading Rome Now Has A Pizza Vending Machine!

New Brooklyn Pizza Shop From Lucali’s Mark Iacono Opening Next Week

Pizza Brooklyn’s pizza shop Lucali ranks at the top of the best pizzerias in America on just about every list each year.

The shop is pretty small and you can’t just stop by for a slice. Expect hours long waits to get one of their pies and delicious calzones (which I think are even better). Continue reading New Brooklyn Pizza Shop From Lucali’s Mark Iacono Opening Next Week

A Visit To Michelin Starred Momofuku Ko For… Pizza!

Momofuku KoDavid Chang’s Momofuku Ko, located in NYC’s East Village, has held two Michelin stars since 2009.

When I heard that they were offering pizza, it immediately became a must-try on my list. While pizza isn’t a part of the menu that Michelin recognized the restaurant for, I thought it would be fun to say that we had pizza from a Michelin starred restaurant!
