pizza lovin

13 May

In New York City, grocery shopping can probably be considered a work out. What’s bodypump? I take “grocery shopping: level 3.” Don’t even think about taking “grocery shopping: trader joe’s” until you have mastered level 3. And be sure to follow the rules of the coded lines. (I didn’t and got yelled at.)

However, New York is also the land of getting whatever you want, whenever you want, delivered right to your door. Exhibit A:

my welcome home pinkberry from monday

So, when I saw a Groupon $25 for $50 worth of groceries for first time fresh direct customers – I was all about trying out the delivery service and of course, saving money on my groceries. A man brought these to my door. Ahhhh, arms – you got a break this week. Don’t get used to it. The delivery charge is only $5.99 – which is pretty reasonable considering the luxury of having groceries without even stepping a foot outside, but I just don’t know if I could justify ordering again without a coupon.

Tonight, Danny and I took a stab at the whole wheat pizza dough I ordered. He picked up the sauce from whole foods and we used the rest of mah goods. Garlic, mozzarella, basil, seasonings. The dough wound up being slightly smaller than we expected!

Lovely whole wheaaaat goodness.

The result of team work:

mmmm, mozzarella is the best. we’re just trying to perfect the new york slice.

Verdict? The sauce was boring. We’re definitely going to try a something different next time. There’s a million ways to make pizza so I’m excited to keep on goiiin.’ In fact, the current issue of Shape I snagged for my train ride home has quite a few options that are incredibly appealing to me.

    I made pizza with my boyfriend the other night! We used whole wheat dough from Trader Joe’s and topped it with TJ marinara, mozza cheese, sliced bell peppers, mushrooms,and sliced sausage. SO GOOD!! but idk is it worth the trouble? I feel like I can get really good pizza anywhere in NYC haha

    I would love someone to deliver my groceries to me. But I’m picky so it would probably end up being a disaster. Homemade pizza is the best but again, I’m picky and bad sauce could ruin the whole thing. One piece of advice: add the basil after you’ve cooked the pizza.

      that’s why I never ordered them before! I hate not being able to pick out my vegetables myself, but hey I can’t argue saving $25!
