    Over New Year’s, I spent a couple of days down in Charleston, South Carolina. It was my first trip to the state, and some pizza was definitely a must. Over the years, I’ve heard so much about how great of a food city Charleston is, and I was excited to try many of its famous restaurants like Husk and Hominy Grill. However my research about pizza in the area, let me to a spot about 20 minutes outside of Charleston proper: EVO Pizza (1075 East Montague Avenue). In case you’re wondering, EVO stands for Extra Virgin Oven. The restaurant is one large room which seats about 40,…

    Right on the heels of the first filming report, we're now getting some casting news for the upcoming sequel to last year's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen/Arrow on "Arrow," apparently won the role of Casey Jones in auditions held just this past weekend.According to Variety.com, "Amell tested with a half-dozen actors over the weekend, but it was his chemistry with Fox that led to the studio eventually giving the role to the star of CW’s 'Arrow.'"Amell steps into the shoes of Elias Koteas, who is the only other actor to play Casey Jones in a…

    Reports from this past weekend possibly provided some details on the sequel to last year's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie from Paramount, which has started filming in New York.One scene, filmed Wednesday at Madison Square Garden, had Will Arnett's character, Vern Fenwick, at a basketball game with his apparent girlfriend, played by Victoria's Secret lingerie model Alessandra Ambrosio. (Convenient, considering the last shot of the first movie.) During filming, the two shared a bag of popcorn and, apparently, at least one kiss.During a podcast interview with The Lowe Post, LA Clippers…

  • Five 50º, Dewey Ave.

    Over the course of writing this blog, I've written a few posts about Checker Flag, a now-defunct pizzeria at 1481 Dewey Avenue in Rochester, at the corner of Ridgeway. Checker Flag was best known for its dollar slices, which weren't bad, for the price.Now comes Five50º, named, I assume, after the oven temperature. As the full name -- Five50º Pizza and Chicken -- implies, it's not just, or even primarily, a pizzeria. Five50º serves a range of items, many of them fried.There's nothing particularly remarkable about Five50º, but it gives me occasion to say a few words about - what shall I…

    As I have before, I start this post with a disclaimer. This blog is about Rochester-area pizza. But now and then there's a food-related topic that I want to relate, that takes too much space to fit on my Facebook page. So here's one of them. A few weeks ago, I stopped into Spice Bazaar on Jefferson Road in Henrietta. I love going into these kinds of ethnic markets because you see so many unusual foods, many of which are completely unfamiliar, if not unidentifiable, to most of us.I had just come from dinner with my wife at Raj Mahal next door. We were on a tight schedule, due to a…
  • Akron, Part II: Tony's Pizza Shop

    27 Mar 2015 | 1:24 pm
    As I explained in my recent post on PizzaBella, Akron (NY, not Ohio) is blessed with two pizzerias within a block of each other. I don't often have occasion to travel to Akron, so once I was there, there was no way that I was going to pass up the chance to try both PizzaBella and its neighbor, Tony's Pizza Shop.According to their website, Tony's has been in business, under the same family ownership, since 1957, which I think would put it among WNY's oldest pizzerias, especially family-owned pizzerias. So for that alone, I was looking forward to Tony's.And my hopes were justified. I got a…

    I took advantage of my recent visit to the Perry's Ice Cream plant in Akron, NY to hit a couple of pizzerias in town.Conveniently, they are located on the same block, on the north side of Main Street. First up was PizzaBella.My cheese slice was a New York style, thin-crust pizza. And it was a good one.The underside was spottily browned, but not quite blackened. It was crisp, and a little crackly along the outer edge. The crust was a little chewy, and very thin, but firm. I got some nice toasty notes from underneath, but there wasn't much interior to speak of. The narrow cornicione was…

What makes my return to the peel that much more appealing was my trip to Lucali in Miami with great friends and pizza guru Steven Shmookler. Let’s get straight to […]

  • Hutong Pizza In Beijing: Cool Space, Bad Pies

    I recently went on a two week trip to China. Similar to my previous trips to Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Japan), I was not planning on eating too much pizza throughout my travels. Every pizza meal results in one less bowl of noodles or basket of dumplings. But I made it a point to try one pizza place and some online research led me to Hutong Pizza in Beijing (9 Yindingqiao Hutong). So… pizza in China. Not normally what you’d associate with the world’s most populous country. But with nearly 1.4 billion customers, it’s no surprise that there is a market for…

It’s actually an offshoot of PMQ Magazine which is the industry’s go-to trade magazine and website.

  • Unveiling The Brand New IDreamOfPizza Logo

    Back in November of 2008, when I launched IDreamOfPizza, I had no expectations for what I wanted the blog to be. All I knew is that I loved pizza and writing and figured I’d combine the two and see what happens. Before I wrote a single post on the blog, I created a logo. I don’t remember the exact process I undertook, but it likely required little thought or effort. I wasn’t building a business or a pizza empire. So I didn’t really put much time into creating a brand identity. From what I recall, I simply Googled something along the lines of “delicious…
