Forgot to post this back a couple weeks ago. After hearing many raving reviews of a design-your-pizza restaurant called Pieology, Jess and I finally gave in and dropped by to try it out.
Located at Irvine Spectrum, we found the place neatly tucked between a few other small restaurants. Interior was small but of modern design. Right when we walked in, the smell of cheese as well as pizzas being baked hit me. After a short wait, we walked up to the front where you started with choosing a base or sauce, different kinds of cheeses, assorted meats, varieties of vegetable and fruit toppings and to top it off, a choice of sauce to douse your creation with before it heads to the fiery inferno oven of theirs.
I got the regular crust, with tomato sauce, ham, pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, chicken and almost all the vegetables. No sauce. My creation was thus after heating for <10 minutes in the oven.
Texture felt like a thin crust. Flavor was spot on and with the hodgepodge of meat and vegetables, the assortment of texture and juices from the toppings melded very well with the two types of cheese I selected. Overall, a very satisfying create-your-pizza place for only $7.50. I found myself pretty full afterwards; then again, I had a quarter of Jess’s too! xD
I think this week will be my last week of going in to work early for CGH training. It comes with sighs of relief but also sighs of sadness. I’ll be glad to finally go back to my normal, consistent hours where I won’t be rushed in the morning and have time to pack my lunch, clean, do chores, run errands, take care of Kari, etc. I’ll be sad though because it’s been fun spending time with Jess in the evening like many normal people, going out to eat dinner at a normal time and just enjoying my nights at home with both Jess and Kari.
Speaking of Kari, I will miss seeing her run up to me even more excited than usual. Probably since I came home first versus when I’m on my normal shift, I’ll be home second. Some pictures of Kari I took when coming home early:
Her tail can do almost a full curl now!
