Pizza In Portugal’s Wine Country At Pizzeria Limonete

“This reminds me of the pizza at Yankee Stadium,” my wife proclaimed, as she took her first bite of pizza at Pizzeria Limonete (R. da Ferreirinha, 5050). “Is that a good thing?” I replied.

Pizza On Campus: Strada At The University Of Wisconsin

Wisconsin was the final stop on a recent road trip I took to the South and Midwest. In a state which is synonymous with cheese, I was hoping to end the trip on a high note in terms of my pizza consumption.
