Pizza and beer?

July 9, 2011

Saturday morning! But not just any Saturday, this Saturday started with Jen!! We have a fun afternoon planned- lunch, shopping, maybe a cupcake or two to go with our coffee.

Last night was date night for Carver and I, and we had a great time. We drove to downtown Phoenix and had dinner at Pizzeria Bianco. This restaurant was featured on Food Network and it is one of Carver’s favorite pizza places.

The room was tiny but smelled amazing, but we were told there was an hour-long wait. So we went to their bar and had a beer and a ham-cheese panino. Super greasy but very good, and it was served with a warm stony grain mustard and homemade bread and butter pickles which made me want pickles at the reception.

After a quick 25 minutes we were seated and I let Carver do all the ordering: caprese salad, farmhouse salad, and a wiseguys pizza. The caprese salad was very good, and the tomatoes had formed a tasty sauce at the bottom of the plate which was great for dipping the ciabatta in. The farmhouse salad was very nice: arugula and watercress in a lemony vinaigrette with goat cheese and fresh figs. And the pizza you ask? Well it had caramelized onions, Italian sausage and a creamy cheese blend. The crust was light and crispy and full of flavor.

All in all a delicious date night and we will certainly be back.
