Rome Now Has A Pizza Vending Machine!

Pizza
Not From Pizza Vending Machine…

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.

Find Out About Our Visit To Old Forge, PA- Pizza Capital of the World

Pizza Capital of the WorldWhen most people think of pizza destinations, I think it’s fair to say that New York and Italy primarily come to mind.

If I’m thinking about pizza around the US, the places I think of most would be New York (really Brooklyn), Chicago and Connecticut.

Around five or six years back, I heard about an area in Pennsylvania dubbing themself the Pizza Capital of the World! I had to find out for myself about the area by taking a trip to Old Forge, PA. Continue reading Find Out About Our Visit To Old Forge, PA- Pizza Capital of the World

Grab A Pie At 87 Year-Old Patsy’s Pizzeria In East Harlem, NYC

Patsy's PizzeriaLast month, I wrote about how my family got to eat a meal from NYC’s most exclusive restaurant. The restaurant is located in NYC’s East Harlem neighborhood which is a bit of a trip for us from our home in Brooklyn.

This Pizza Themed Airbnb Comes With… A Slice Of Pizza!

pizzaWe started using Airbnb during our trips back in August 2012.

After having a hard time finding a solid, affordable place in Singapore, we turned to Airbnb and it was an awesome experience. Since then, we’ve stayed in Airbnbs many times, some stays have been great, others not so much.

Over the years, I’ve come across various interesting and bizarre Airbnbs like a 6 ton potato, a vintage custom vanigloos, tents and more. Continue reading This Pizza Themed Airbnb Comes With… A Slice Of Pizza!

Our Experience At The 2nd Annual New York Pizza Festival

festivalBetter late than never… The Michael W Travels family attended the 2nd Annual New York Pizza Festival in Bronx’s Little Italy on October 5th. (I’ve been a bit tardy on getting my post together.)

Last year, we attended the 1st NY Pizza Festival and had a great time. It was a no-brainer that we’d return again this year.

To change things up, we headed to the festival on the first day of the two day event. Due to this we didn’t have any recommendations to go by when choosing which slices to try. Continue reading Our Experience At The 2nd Annual New York Pizza Festival
