REVIEW: Harris Teeter

Grocery store chain makes fresh pizza to order, May 28, 2018

Location: 12404 Warwick Blvd Warwick Boulevard, Newport News, VA

Last month I reviewed airport pizza and in a similar vein, grocery store pizza has a significant chance to be especially not great. This grocery store is near where we live and we went to check it out and buy some groceries and while doing so, saw that they make fresh to order pizza there as well as by the slice. It looked a like a pretty good set up and the pizza looked appetizing so I decided I would try it sometime in the future (it was not near a meal time at that moment). Also, on Mondays they had a special for entire pizzas for like eight dollars or something. So I did what anyone would do and went back on...(more)

REVIEW: Lahaina Chicken Company

They obviously also had pizza, Apr 18, 2018

Location: Honolulu Airport

Airport pizza is risky. It is always overpriced as is all food at an airport, and has a better than even chance that the pizza will not be very good. When stuck at an airport, choices are limited and one must often settle. Luckily, in this case, I was able to find a place that made personal pizzas to order and it wasn't that busy to boot. It was also rather close to where my gate was, so I could easily carry it back to where my party was hanging out. It did take far too long to prepare, but then again, this place wasn't billed as one of those "fast-fired" joints so I guess it was fast enough. When I got the pizza, sat down and opened the box, this is...(more)

Review: MOD Pizza

Yet another quick fired type of place, Mar 21, 2018

Location: 12274 Jefferson Ave, Newport News, VA

I first went to one of these custom-made quick-fired style pizza places back in 2012 or 2013 in Charleston, South Carolina after a race. I thought it was cool, but I did not anticipate how the segment would explode. MOD Pizza marks the 4th or 5th place like this that I have tried, and it might just be the best so far. When you enter, you jump right in a line to have your pizza made to order, just like how Subway makes you a sub. Once done, they chuck it in a zillion degree over to cook super fast and then there you go. The pricing is really simple - pay for the size and type of crust you want and away you go. There is no real...(more)

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: Napoli's Pizza Chips

Trash or... uh... not trash?, Jan 16, 2018

This blog is for pizza and generally speaking that is what I will review, but occasionally I will sprinkle in assorted pizza-related products because why not? Today it is Napoli's Pizza Chips. I had never seen these before and saw them one day at BJ's, our local warehouse store. I figured since I love all things pizza I would give them a try. What sold it for me is that they went to the trouble of shaping the chips like slices of pizza. Those kinds of details matter! The bag was pretty big, as expected from a warehouse store and the price was reasonable - around $6. I don't buy or eat chips/crackers all that often, and to be honest, these were more like crackers than chips, but I figured wh...(more)
