Boston Pizza

I'm back from my girls weekend in Boston, we all had a great time and I miss everyone already! We ate a lot of pizza over the course of the weekend. It wasn't planned that way, but rather just happened. Boston isn't famous for its pizza like New York and Chicago are, but it was all delicious.

First up was dinner on Thursday night at Joe V's, a tiny little restaurant in the South End by my sister's apartment. She's been there several times and suggested a bunch of us brave the monsoon that was going on outside to get some thin crust pizza. Actually, they call it ultra thin crust pizza, which is exactly how I like it. We ordered spicy sausage with roasted red peppers and caramelized onions, margarita with scallions, and the "yoga pizza" which has prosciutto, parmesan, mushrooms, arugula, and white truffle oil. Sorry the pictures are a little dark.

Friday night we ordered from Presto, our old college pizza spot in Cleveland Circle. There's a lot of debate over which Cleveland Circle pizza place is the best - Presto or Pino's. We have always been on Team Presto, maybe because it's so good, or maybe because of the "super large". This pizza is bigger than anything you've ever seen. It's huge. I don't even think the pictures will do it justice. I took one picture with some hands on the box so you can see just how big it is.

Saturday evening, Leslie was kind enough to stop by Framingham Bakery (sorry, no website) to pick up some of their pizza for a pre-dinner snack. This pizza was a staple of our college lives, making most of its appearances at tailgates. It's more of a pizza bread - fluffy, light bread with a light layer of sauce and cheese on top and cut into squares. I think it's even better served at room temperature. This picture shows the pizza cut up into smaller pieces...and almost gone.

And late night on Saturday, we ordered from Natalie's, which was also a college staple. I guess we ate a lot of pizza in college...but who doesn't? I wouldn't say Natalie's is anything special, but it's open until 3am. Sorry, no pictures of this one.

Four kinds of pizza in one weekend. When I called Peter on Sunday afternoon as I was getting ready to go to the airport, he said "guess what I got us for dinner tonight? pizza crust!" No joke.

Last note: my sister and I went to Flour in the South End on Sunday to pick up some lunch to go. She said they have the best BLTs so I took her advice. It was on whole wheat foccacia bread, with applewood smoked bacon, arugula and tomatoes. We also got a couple bittersweet chocolate chip cookies. It's a really cute spot, with lots of tempting bakery treats on display.
