Buy a Drink, Get a Pizza!

And we’re not talking your standard greasy saucy pizza. This is wood fired pizza (which I LOVE). Sounds too good to be true, right? Daily Candy and Metromix don’t lie about Happy Hour specials in Chicago, do they? Well Doug and I were unsure also, but it’s for real! Last Friday after work, we headed to the Florentine inside the JW Marriott to check out the deal.

Doug had a beer and the mushroom pizza (crimini and oyster mushrooms, tallegio, radicchio), while I enjoyed a Sicilian Lemonade (Pallini Limoncello, Blood Orange Juice, Fresh Lemon) and the goat cheese pizza (leeks, yellow onion, smoked bacon, roasted garlic). My drink should be served at all barbeques! It was so light and refreshing…like pink lemonade, except with booze. But not in a cheap vodka + lemonade kind of way. Yum! And the wood fired pizza?! Deeeeliciously thin, light, and crispy with tasty toppings! Mine may have been a tad salty from the goat cheese and bacon, but still so yummy nonetheless!

Go go go!
