800 Degrees!

02 February 2012

Pin It

After spending an amazing day at Disney (more pictures to come soon!)
We got the chance to meet up with our new LA friends Britt and her husband Marco.
We decided to try out a new place in the area called 800 degrees.
One of my husband's patients from Naples swore it tasted extremely authentic....

here is our night in pictures!

long line for pizza, but totally worth it!

upon entering the line you see your individual handmade fresh dough being shaped. 

fresh sauce, and fresh cheeses (like the mozzarella pictures above) is added next
after going through and picking out gourmet toppings like proscuitto,  pine nuts, arugula and caramelized onions..
(britt and her husband picking out their "extras"!)

THEN the pizza's get popped in an 800 degree wood-burning oven to be cooked to perfection.
I love IZZE

I got a proscuitto and arugula WAS as amazing as it looks.

our pizzas!  and can you believe these are $6-$10 bucks.  crazy!

okay don't look at me, I was just the decoy so we could take pictures of timothy olyphant who was sitting right behind us.
celeb spotting!  I am so LA now. 

husband's margherita pizza...yum.

and then we went to a candy store, most amazing candy store EVER!

I wanted everything...... but had to keep reminding  myself of my "get fit" goals. UGH.

I love rootbeer too......

and then to finish off the night, we headed to Diddy Riese (yes, we have been there about 8 times now)

nothing better than slapping some ice cream in between to cookies for a buck fifty. amazing.

It was a pretty fantastic pre-birthday celebration.
Pizza, celeb spotting, candy store, great company and ice cream and cookies?
I mean... what could have topped that?
also, you should head over to Britney's blog, 
--she is the sweetest ever and my newest real life friend.
