I’m heading out shortly to co-lead a run for a company, but first, I want to share my latest Foodie Friday adventure.  My friend and fellow foodie Gabby and I finally crossed off one item on our New York City Bucket List this week: getting pizza at Grimaldi’s!

Its flagship restaurant is situated in DUMBO (district under the Manhattan Bridge overpass, aka Brooklyn), but there’s also a location within Chelsea’s Limelight Marketplace.  This restaurant was on the smaller side (Gabby said it used to be a club back in the day), and it was packed when we arrived around 7:30 p.m.  We immediately ordered a regular pizza (Grimaldi’s doesn’t do slices) with peppers and sausage …

… and devoured every last bite.

Let’s say I was carbo-loading for my 3,000-yard swim and four-mile run the next morning, ha!

Anyway, besides the obvious—it’s pizza, therefore it’s delicious—we really enjoyed the thin crust.  The crust itself tasted crispy, and the sauce worked to soften it a bit in the actual pie.  It gets two thumbs up from me!

What’s your favorite pizza topping?
