California Pizza Road-trip

In honor of Friday Night Pizza, T.W.O. will be featuring our favorite pizza places in California. Each places has a unique touch that keeps us coming back. Not only is the pizza good, the ambiance and the people you are worth make the experience that much better. Enjoy reading about our favorites.

ZeroZero, San Francisco


ZeroZero is obviously named after the flour that is used to make the pizza dough. That being said, by using 00 Flour and a stone oven, it’s safe to safe the pizza has a light, airy and fluffy crust. Not to mention the dough is sweet. Combining the dough with fungi or vegetables and even their seasonal special that incorporates fresh produce to make a delectable masterpiece.  ZeroZero does it write! Start the meal with a beet salad and a side of fresh pasta. The lamb rague is awesome. Can’t forget about the wine on tap too! The rose is great!! The final course – an afrigato. Yes, ice cream covered in a an expression shot. Make your reservation early, this is a popular place!! Don’t forget to send you post card to T.W.O. To tell us about your meal!

Una Pizza Napolentana, San Francisco


Minimalist. Tradition. Perfection. It’s a one guy show at this restaurant. Immediately you walk into this place thinking that you are going to be impressed. It’s a white wall, concrete floor filled space that is commonly covered in flour. Yes, one guy. His kitchen is set up in the middle of the restaurant or should I call it an art exhibit. That’s the feel you get. Now for the pizzas-there isn’t many, but that’s okay because you don’t need much. Margarita, Bianca, traditional-take your pick. Each person orders a pizza for them self. And you will be disappointed when you fits his it yourself. Don’t expect salads or anything else on the menu. It’s all about the pizza. Pair it with wine or a beer and finish the meal off with coffee. That it. You will be coming back for more! There are no reservations for this place, so be sure to get there early. Once the pizza dough runs out, that’s it. Closed for business’s. Enjoy!

Pizza Port, Solana Beach


A day after the Del Mar horse races calls for a meal at Pizza Port. Located near the train station, this traditional pizza parlor has the best pizza in San Diego County. Grab your friends, a booth and a pitcher of beer and enjoy the big slices of Pizza Port.

Pizzeria Mozza, Newport Beach


Tucked in a corner of Newport Beach along Pacific Coast Highway, this gem is a great dinner spot for friends, couples or company events. (They have a great private room)  Pizzeria Mozza specializes in wordfire pizzas along with salads, pastas and one of our favorite desserts in Orange County….Butterscotch Budino.  Grab some friends and make this a stop on your drive up PCH.  You won’t be disappointed!

Happy Friday Night Pizza Night!

Howdy Houston!

Howdy Houston! This past weekend, a T.W.O. boogied on down to Houston, Texas for the Food & Nutrition Conference (FNCE). I spent most of the time in Downtown Houston, which is filled with some good restaurants, stadiums and parks. Get your cowboy boots on and get ready to “T.W.O.-step” it with me in Houston!




A T.W.O. had the pleasure of eating dinner at the famous Sambuca! They have locations in Dallas, Houston, Nashville and Plano. This restaurant is known for its great food, music and dancing. I experienced some great seafood dishes and live classic rock music by FM Live Band. T.W.O. highly recommends this restaurant!

Pappas Bar-B-Q

If you visit Houston, you must go to Pappas Bar-B-Q. All the locals recommended it, so I went! And boy, were our tummies full when I walked out! A T.W.O. would highly suggest ordering the brisket and turkey breast! So moist and tender!

Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse

Got meat? Vic & Anthony’s sure does! A T.W.O. ate a delicious dinner at this recommended steakhouse downtown Houston. The atmosphere reminded us of a Fleming’s or a Morton’s with dim lights and leather chairs. A T.W.O. ordered a roasted beet goat cheese salad, crab cake, and filet and would suggest that all 3 be ordered- especially the crab cake!

Food & Nutrition Conference and Expo

T.W.O. had the opportunity to attend the FNCE conference in Houston. This conference is catered to food and nutrition professionals and has the latest nutrition science information and foodservice trends. There are over 8,000 attendees and more than 350 exhibitors at this conference. A T.W.O. had a fabulous time exploring the different booths (especially Justin’s and Go Live!) as well as promoting celiac diagnostic testing at the Prometheus Laboratories booth.

Happy Travels!
