This Summer has been one for the ages! And I don’t want it to end. It’s not only been fun writing about pizza. It’s just been fun in general. The whole reason for doing this is to feel good, enjoy life, and to make some pals along the way. That is what life is all about.
An added bonus in my pizza travels, is that I get to be extremely random. I can write about anything pizza related and hopefully find the positive and sometimes spiritual in every situation.
It’s only fitting that on this unofficial final weekend of my favorite season, that we celebrate what is good and symbolic about this holiday. Were these three paragraphs a little too melodramatic? Then good! 🙂
There’s great restaurants, shopping, bars, people watching, and of course the beach and boardwalk itself. So what about the pizza?
Well there’s plenty of that. I had a list of places I wanted to check out and they were all in close proximity of one another, but fortunately plans don’t always go accordingly and something new throws you for a loop. I’m happy it did.
This lead me to America’s Pie At The Beach. And what a wonderful surprise awaited me and awaits anyone else that tries their pizza!
The staff could not have been more friendly and approachable. They had some unique selections to go with their cheese, pepperoni, white, etc.
They could tell it was my first time as I was eager to try a couple of random slices. So without any further adieu, here were my two orders :
First was one they had literally just created that day. It includes bacon, red onions, and peaches! Yes peaches! And it was then topped with greens. You must pardon my excitement, I may be missing or incorrectly typing a topping or two but that’s the gist of it. I don’t believe they even had a name for it.
But this was a very charming slice. I thought the lettuce (which I’m going to say was red leaf) would be too much, but it was a fantastic addition to this wonderful slice. I must say the peaches did it for me. This all came together superbly. If it was just a white pie with peaches I’d be happy too! Red onions were a welcome addition too. And the crust was heated so perfectly! What a wonderful crunch. And the way the cheese, and the toppings baked into the crust is aesthetically pleasing. This was creativity at its peak!
Here is a picture with the lettuce off to the side, so you can get a great visual of what’s below! Magnifico!
I did my first peach festival a few weeks ago, so I felt warm and fuzzy having this one too. This was a symbolic gesture from the universe and to myself as well.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get anymore inspiring, we have the New Orleans! I visited New Orleans for the first time earlier this Summer, so this was more of a sentimental choice than anything.
I was able to get a cheat sheet off the menu for this one. I was too excited at the time to remember all the toppings for this soulful slice.
It’s amazing how one or two toppings can make or a break a slice. This one falls on the former. The mozzarella with the pepper jack cheese is a heck of a duo. I would have been happy with the slice as that. But even better, the honey dijon mustard and cajun chicken gives it some authentic New Orleans flavor. And again, it’s heated to perfection.
As you can see their website is under construction but the pizza is anything but. There were so many unique pies and slices to try that I hope I get to visit again very soon. It also seems they create stuff on the fly and that day. Like the first order I referred to, I was so excited I didn’t even get the name. I’m not sure if there even was one. Regardless, they were both wonderful.
I found out the place has only been open a month but they’re making a strong case for one of the best pizzas at the Eastern Shore. And I wish them all the best!
