Review: Anna's Italian Pizza

Old school mom and pop action, Mar 7, 2018

Location: 2845 N Armistead Ave # H, Hampton, VA

Not far from where I work, and a place I pass by often is Anna's Italian Pizza. I had been meaning to try it forever, but it still a year and a half until my wife and I finally did. Walking into Anna's is like walking back in time 20 years or more, and not in a completely bad way. Their website (https://www.annasitalianva.com/) says they have been in business since 1970 and in this location since 1992. The staff was really friendly and the entire place was no frills, but again, in a totally ok way. I ordered my usual pepperoni and my wife got a white sauce pepperoni and tomato. The po...(more)

REVIEW: Brick Oven Bistro

Pizza stop the night before a long day at Cedar Point, Sep 21, 2018

Location: 1012 Cleveland Rd W, Sandusky, OH - brickovenohio.com

I arrived in town on Friday afternoon so I could go to Cedar Point with my sister and nephew on Saturday. They did not get in until later, so I was on my own for dinner. So what do I do? Search for a local high-rated pizza joint, of course. Brick Oven Bistro was only a few blocks away from my hotel based on ratings was the obvious choice. The place was pretty packed, but since I was alone I was able to get a small table pretty quickly. The waitstaff was super friendly and the place was cozy. Up until I got my pizza, this place was the picture-perfect ideal of what a mom...(more)

REVIEW: Sal's Pizza

A single location parlor in Newport News, Aug 17, 2018

Location: 613 Pilot House Drive Newport News, VA - nnsalspizza.com

Not long after moving across town, we decided to try a local pizza shop really close to the new house. I think we were lured by a coupon that showed up at our house, but w wanted to try the local pizza anyway, so we would have given it a shot no matter what. Everything about the coupons, the website, the physical location itself was pretty standard, generic, basic pizza place type stuff. It seemed a little out of time, actually. Like something you would expect to see 20 or 30 years ago but not today. That normally means the pizza must be really good for this place to surviv...(more)

REVIEW: Wholesome Eating

Can a good keto pizza be done?, Mar 5, 2020

Location: 13455 Blanco Rd, San Antonio, TX - wholesomeeatingllc.com/

My wife has started trying out the keto lifestyle recently, so by request we went to a keto kitchen type place near her work for lunch for her "not on her birthday birthday lunch." This is obviously a place I would never choose to go on my, not being on keto myself, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. The place was super small with just a few tables - it was obviously set up for a lot of takeout and the offerings were lots of breath and muffins and all that type of stuff. The place was not just keto, but also had gluten-free, paleo, and vegan options, so ...(more)

Pizzamancer

Ever since a fateful day in the mid to late 80s when my dad said, "Whatever you want" and I got my first pepperoni pizza, pizza has been my favorite food. And that is exactly how I think pizza is best - pepperoni and cheese. Sure, some other toppings are fine from time to time, but for my money, I'll take extra pepperoni.
