Jet’s Pizza

July 6, 2015

Until recently I’d never tried Jet’s Pizza, a small chain out of Michigan with some locations around Atlanta. I’d never even heard of them until my brother told me about them, as there is one near his home in Smyrna. They have all kinds of pizza, but the square cut Detroit style is what we’re here to […]

O4W Pizza

April 13, 2015

It’s sort of embarrassing, but I sit around and reminisce about food some times, reading old blog posts and looking at photos, thinking about how much I love great butter or a pan of rice. It’s even more fun with friends, like at a get together last night where I was talking about a barbecue trip I took […]

People sleep on Fritti, the longstanding Neapolitan pizzeria in the Inman Park area, which has been making really nice pies for a loooong time. I forget about it too, and I shouldn’t. It’s the sort of neighborhood place I would visit frequently if I lived nearby, though I’ve been hearing good things about Old Fourth […]

Pizzeria Bianco | Little Miss BBQ | Cowboy Ciao [Phoenix, AZ]

December 17, 2014

Phoenix, Arizona. I’d never been. I’m not sure I had even entered the state…maybe when I drove cross country and visited the Four Corners my feet stomped the arid dirt for a minute, but that’s about it. When I learned I’d be going there to discuss profitability tactics in the distribution industry (I’m a killer in […]

Ribalta Pizza (midtown)

November 24, 2014

It’s interesting how much marketing matters. Take Ribalta, the relatively unknown pizza restaurant in Midtown, which replaced Piola, a generally accepted yet unloved pizza place from the same ownership group.  I read about Ribalta in AJC and it looked solid – there’s a lot of good pizza out there these days, and I’m happy to try it. But the AJC article read like […]

Antico Calzone

April 20, 2014

I’ve said it many times, but I think Antico pizza is overhyped and inconsistent, and it’s not on my regular pizza rotation. I don’t want to wait in line and deal with the chaos to get a sloppy made $20 pizza with 80% margins that could be super doughy. However, they do use quality ingredients […]

My Pizzas

March 21, 2014

Eater’s Pizza Week has reminded me it’s been a while since I’ve made pizza at home, one of my favorite kitchen past times. Part of the reason for the lack of sweet pie making came when I moved and lost access to our hacked pizza oven – Varasano style, I removed the safety latch which […]

Don Antonio by Starita

March 17, 2014

It would be fair to call me more than a little skeptical when I heard of the opening of Don Antonio by Starita in the former STG space in Buckhead. It’s not that the original Don Antonio in New York didn’t have pedigree – it does, and I was quite familiar with them as they […]
