Tasty Places :: Margarita Pizza Bar

We were in between volleyball games at the Galen Center.

Kourt loves the cardinal and gold

(The Trojans got us, by the way. It was a win-win/lose-lose for me, as a USD Mom/USC Alum).  We walked Kourtney over to CPK on campus because she LOVES to eat CPK on campus. But my husband wanted something he couldn’t get at the Lakewood Mall, and I was hoping to sit-down to sip a mommy beverage. Strolling down Figueroa with an hour to spare, we passed Freebirds World Burrito…

(This, we had the day before on the first day of the tournament. My husband wanted to try it. It was my second time there. There will not be a third.)

…and found a booth at Margarita Pizza Bar, just in time for the ‘SC football game. It was cool – I was in the mood for pizza (despite not wanting CPK). But even better, it was brunch! So you know what that means. 🙂

Sangria

I had two, in fact. And they were good and fruity. A little watery, but enough alcohol in it that I didn’t mind. So I only had room for a couple slices of pizza.

It was sooooo good. The cheese was smoky and ooey-gooey, the crust crisp and slightly overbaked, just the way I like it. Knowing the Galen security was going to check my bag when I went back inside, I asked for my leftovers to be wrapped in foil, excited that I’d have a bit of a snack after the second set.

It worked – I got the pizza inside. I got my free t-shirt for being one of the first 5,000 fans (Sidebar – really, SC? I mean, I love women’s volleyball more than anyone, and I know the headlining game was SC-Notre Dame… but did you really think you’d get 5,000 people? Not that I care because our household of three brought home 6 shirts).

The interior

But my cold pizza was just not the same. My crispy crust had slept its way to a damp, doughy mess. The cheese was sparse and chewy. Usually I love cold pizza, but this pie is definitely meant to be eaten fresh. And I can’t hate on that. Just means I’ll have to get up there again, this time with an empty stomach and nowhere else to go for the day. Overall, however, a success!
