800 Degrees!

After spending an amazing day at Disney (more pictures to come soon!)
We got the chance to meet up with our new LA friends Britt and her husband Marco.
We decided to try out a new place in the area called 800 degrees.
One of my husband’s patients from Naples swore it tasted extremely authentic….
here is our night in pictures!
long line for pizza, but totally worth it!

upon entering the line you see your individual handmade fresh dough being shaped. 

fresh sauce, and fresh cheeses (like the mozzarella pictures above) is added next
after going through and picking out gourmet toppings like proscuitto,  pine nuts, arugula and caramelized onions..
(britt and her husband picking out their “extras”!)

THEN the pizza’s get popped in an 800 degree wood-burning oven to be cooked to perfection.
I love IZZE
I got a proscuitto and arugula pizza….it WAS as amazing as it looks.

our pizzas!  and can you believe these are $6-$10 bucks.  crazy!
okay don’t look at me, I was just the decoy so we could take pictures of timothy olyphant who was sitting right behind us.
celeb spotting!  I am so LA now. 
husband’s margherita pizza…yum.

and then we went to a candy store, most amazing candy store EVER!

I wanted everything…… but had to keep reminding  myself of my “get fit” goals. UGH.

I love rootbeer too……
and then to finish off the night, we headed to Diddy Riese (yes, we have been there about 8 times now)

nothing better than slapping some ice cream in between to cookies for a buck fifty. amazing.

It was a pretty fantastic pre-birthday celebration.
Pizza, celeb spotting, candy store, great company and ice cream and cookies?
I mean… what could have topped that?
also, you should head over to Britney’s blog, 
–she is the sweetest ever and my newest real life friend.

  2. says

    OK they NEED to bring Diddy Riese to Houston. I bet they make a KILLING yet it’s still so cheap for everyone else.

    PS-what do you use to edit your pics? I always love what you do to them… :)

    Oh my goodness, I grew up in LA and I feel like you know some parts of it better than I do! I’ve never been to 800 degrees but am adding it to my favorites so I remember to go when I go back for another visit!

    And Diddy Riese is SO good! My mouth waters just thinking about it! Looks like one amazing birthday!

    I’m feeling SUPER hungry now after all those yummy looking treats. I feel like I’m learning about all the great places in Cali for when I visit there ((one day!))

    That place looks and sounds so much like this one pizzeria we have her in DC called 2 Amy’s!!

    Omg that candy store looks like heaven on earth!

  8. says

    I’m a new reader here – and I adore your blog already! Looks like you had a great time at 800 Degrees :-)

    You take utterly fantastic photos. Do you sell any as prints?

  9. says

    Sunday was so fun! I am so happy you moved to LA even though it is just for a few months. We have to have another date night there soon. This place is so dangerous!

    BTW your pictures look amazing! The one at the candy shop is awesome. Marco likes the one with the dough.

    What a great night. Yummy pizza, celeb siting(I don’t know what I would do if I saw him! I’d want to say Hi but wouldn’t want to be intrusive), and yummy cookie with ice cream!! AND that candy store!! I would be in heaven.

  11. says

    that’s it… I’m heading up there JUST to try that place. looks soooo good! P.S. you should head to Orange to try out Bruxie. Waffle sandwiches for the win!
