I've been so excited lately to have my long-time friend visiting me from Germany. Millie was part of an exchange program in high school that practically landed her right on my doorstep. It’s been a total of six years since her last visit to Canada, so naturally, after only a couple days here, we leave Canada and head to the USA. I was lucky enough to spend the weekend in New York City with my long-lost German soul-mate and do every touristy, sight-seeing thing possible, which of course includes eating. AND eating....oh, and more eating.
We made a conscious effort while in the city to eat where the locals eat or to buy from deli’s and markets. My favourite meal of the trip had to have been our picnic in central park (so picture perfect!), but I couldn’t help falling in love with the local pizza. Everyone says that New York pizza is a must-try, and when we kept seeing $1 slices at every pizza place, we HAD to try it for ourselves! I enjoyed a huge slice of pie with red peppers, green peppers, sausage and mushrooms for only, yep, $1.
Upon returning home and missing the skyscrapers, city lights and one dollar slices, I’ve been hunting through my favourite pizza recipes to satisfy my cravings:
I absolutely love the seafood addition to this pizza! Such a wonderfully unique flavour combination...
Have you found a new favourite pizza while travelling?
