Peace Love and Pizza, New Pizzas that Rock!

Published

on

What is it about Pizza that we all love?  Why is it a comfort food?

Various forms of pizza date back in history hundreds of years but the first reference in the United States was in 1903.  Pizza has always been a favorite with kids and adults alike.

In Metro Atlanta, we have so many choices when it comes to Pizza. The Backstage Beat is on a quest to showcase the best.

Peace, Love and Pizza!  Located off Wade Green  Road in Kennesaw, Ga this has been a favorite of The Backstage Beat since early this year.

They recently came out with 6 new pizzas! Yes, 6 to their already amazing menu filled with clever names that will make you smile.

The DeSantis brothers, Dave and Rich own this award-winning pizza joint!  What makes this pizza place out of the ordinary, besides the pizza itself, is the attitude of the staff and the customer service.  Dave and Rich actually love their jobs!  I know, shocking but it is true.  You can feel it when you walk in and you can taste it in every bite of their pizza  and sandwich masterpieces!

We tried two pizzas this week and loved them both.

First up:

Cheezapolooza = pure happiness

This pizza was everything you could want in a pizza pie. Perfect crust, not too thick, not too thin and a deliciously slightly sweet taste.  Then, the real deal… The cheese toppings!!!!  Mozzarella, Cheddar, Romano, Parmesan, Feta and Ricotta!!!!!

This pizza had us all saying “Oh My God!” with every bite! This was truly a religious experience!

Next up:

Moonbeam Meatball Dream = meaty, cheesy goodness in every slice

This pizza is a meal all by itself! One slice is all you need but I guarantee you will want more than just one!  Extra think crust, delicious sauce, mozzarella, double meatball slices, onion, Parmesan and provolone!!!! Yum is an understatement!!!

 

If you are in the mood for some really amazing pizza, call Peace Love and Pizza (770.792.8989)! They do deliver within a certain range but with it located right off 75, you can swing in and grab your pay very easily!

Up next for The Backstage Beat is their new “Born on the Fourth of July” pie! Stay tuned….

 

One extra nice thing about the location of Peace, Love, and Pizza is it’s right next door to my LA Fitness! I can work off  the best pizza in Cobb County!

521 Kitchen and Que = Our Pick for Holiday Meat!

Published

on

521 Kitchen and Que is located in Atlanta off Roswell Road and is our pick for ordering your Holiday Meal this year, and dinner tonight!

Owned by local Atlanta couple, Drew and Roma Kirkland, this is by far one of the best BBQ’s we have been to.  One thing that strikes us in particular about this restaurant is their commitment to locally sourced and fresh food. Also, they are vegetarian and gluten free friendly. Vegetarian? A BBQ restaurant is vegetarian friendly? Yes, believe it or not, as Roma told us, there are quite a lot of  vegetarians that love to grab a bite at 521 Kitchen and Que.

As someone that works with my significant other, I loved the fact that the “521” in 521 Kitchen and Que is their anniversary date. Awe… Heart melts.

So, long story short; We sampled all the yummy goodies they have and for your holiday meals, do yourself a favor and let them cook it.

 

Must have picks:

Turkey – Moist and Delicious. All your guests will be impressed.

Kale Slaw – So delightful! It doesn’t have the bitterness you might expect from Kale. It is definitely worth getting

Baked Sweet Potato – Cooked perfectly, season with salt and pepper

Brisket – Melt in your mouth delicious!

Let’s just say that we loved everything we tried and we are certain you will too.

Go ahead and try them for lunch or dinner! While you are there,  place your holiday order! Do it quickly!

ATLANTA – Any frequenter of Murphy’s knows that each plate is made up of delicious ingredients, locally grown and thoughtfully prepared. To honor the sources of these ingredients, Murphy’s is excited to continue their Farmer’s Table Dinner Series. Already proven to be a fan favorite after a sold out dinner in June, the series will take place the last Wednesday of each month. Guests are invited to enjoy a multi-course meal highlighting local farmers and their contributions to Murphy’s menu.

The first dinner of the series, a successful “trial run”, took place Wednesday, June 24, 2015 and featured farmer Richard Kessler (“RJ”) from Planted Rock Farms. The 4-course dinner included wine pairings and a variety of summer-inspired dishes, thoughtfully prepared by Chef de Cuisine Ricky Navas. Guests also had the opportunity to meet and mingle with RJ and Chef Ricky.

The next dinner will take place Wednesday, July 29 and will be hosted by Geezer’s Farm out of Gurley, Alabama, where Farmer David Sisk will travel to Atlanta to join the feast.

Midtown-Atlanta’s scrumptious Melting Pot will have a delicious 4th of July menu available–and it’s 1/4 off! Skip the grill on your holiday, because there will be a meal for everyone to enjoy aside from burgers and hot dogs. Personally, I’d get all over that watermelon and feta salad. And the Buffalo chicken.
