I know what you are thinking… You’re saying, “Wow, what a Rockstar night you’re have had last night” since I’m scribbling blogs for not only The Chronicles but for the PiercingMetal.com site and talking about the pizza that I tossed together at supper time. I’ve made these sort of tasty treats in the past and have shared them with you on this blog but this one had a little bit of an interesting process to it. I’ll explain that after the photo of the finished yummy. Looks nice don’t you think?
So as I mentioned I was doing blogs for both of the websites and didn’t mind the evening home since I had a few events early in the week and a proposed busy schedule over the weekend with a pitched for convention dealing with food on Sunday along with a show. Chilling on the couch with the DVR playing through the recordings and cat company was a fine thing indeed but what to eat I found myself saying. Instead of ordering out, I decided to see what I had in both the fridge and the freezer. I’ve been on a bit of a non-meat kick and was trying to abstain from the protein for at least two weeks so staying in meant that was easier to do as well. I found some frozen pita bread from a Middle Eastern dish that I had some weeks ago and a good amount of veggies in the fridge like peppers, Jalapenos and mushrooms. I also used some of the leftover marinara that came with an order of garlic knots from my local pizzeria and a nicely spiced garlic clove slice from these amazing spiced pickles that I had on hand.
The idea was to use what I had and not go get anything else outside and this worked out well. Five minutes to prepare and about six to cook and get nice and crispy the way I like it. The pita bread from the restaurant dish was thinner than the type I usually get from the bakery so would be lighter than my other go rounds at the dish. Now it was back to blogging and preparing for the upcoming events. Until next time.
Perhaps you didn’t know about this one either, but today is apparently “National Cheese Pizza Day” and while this its being referred to as an unofficial kind of national holiday; I like to think that I can get behind it with a little bit of gusto. I love pizza and to me there is nothing quite like the stuff we get here in The Big Apple NYC so what I did was gather up a few photos of pizza that I have snagged with my phone while out and about and making pizza the dining option.
Longtime readers of The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken blogs know full well that I am an active participant of the Foodspotting application and you can look more into that yourself by clicking HERE. Now let’s get to some pizza photos. This first shot comes from my own neighborhood spot called Nino’s which is conveniently located right down the street from me. I’ve shared a few photos of some different options that I have had from this place. If you are in Bay Ridge do check them out, they’re in the 90’s on 3rd Avenue.

I’ve been wanting to put more of my dining out adventures here on The Chronicles because I am often taking a whole lot of photos to use for Foodspotting.com purposes and since I recently hit the famous John’s Pizzeria of Bleecker Street I figured why not post something. This was a busy day for me, as I had to head to Long Island City to see a friends art exhibit and then later in the evening would be a rocking show by my buddy’s band. I touched base with some friends who said they wanted to go to John’s Pizzeria beforehand for eats and a couple of beers and so I connected with them but the only downside my stomach was in knots based on drinking some very expired orange juice. This was going to be interesting.
We lucked out on arrival to John’s as there wasn’t much of a wait to get inside. The place is very popular down here in the West Village and there is almost always a line. I’ve seen the line before and opted for something else but tonight my two friends were on a mission so pizza was going to be had and here is a quick visual of the pie from my phone. In John’s you cannot order single slices and must get a whole pie. That was not a problem for us as all as we would devour this.
