Life Update with Pizza

Life Update

I just finished ALL of my rotations for the semester!!! Today was my last day working with the Parkland hospital dietitians, and I had such a great experience working with them! I learned SO much and I feel much more confident about my skills as a real-life dietitian in the future!

But I still have about 9 months until the end of the semester, so I don’t have to think about a job just yet! So, I’m not going to think about that right now….

INSTEAD, let’s talk about dinner this week! Early in the week, I went to dinner with some school friends at Dough!

Dough

Dough is another one of those delicious pizza places (like Il Cane Rosso) that hand makes their pizza according to the standards of the L’Associazione Vera Pizza Napoletena. Basically, that just means their pizza is made with the same specifications and ingredients that authentic Italian pizza would be. And the result is well worth the effort!

We opted for two different pizzas to share! The first one was a special for the day called the Capra:

(And I apologize for the photos; my phone camera is not the best) This pizza had roasted red peppers, goat cheese, and mozzarella. Very delicious, but I think the second pizza was my favorite:

Enter the Preston Hollow

This was full of flavor! Homemade in house Mozzarella cheese, Calabrian chiles, and Jimmy’s sausage. Spicy and the house-made cheese beautifully melted over the entire thing. A little extra parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes made it a meal! And just in case you were wondering, yes we future dietitians did eat some veggies! We all split a salad as an appetizer, but the camera didn’t come out in time for that. Light and flavorful!

Final Verdict: A VERY good place to go get a nice, more gourmet style pizza. Overall, it wasn’t the absolute best pizza I’ve had (I think Cane Rosso still trumps). Don’t get me wrong, I would happily go there again, but I’m a big proponent that the crust makes the pizza. This was a little tougher and not quite as light and chewy as I would have liked. But it can still have an A for effort.

But now it’s time for me to celebrate the END of rotations!

Happy Friday Everyone!
