Hey, foodie fam! As alluded to in my Forte dei Marmi review a couple of weeks ago, I’ve had an overhaul in my dietary lifestyle… After mistakenly watching a Netflix documentary about food, I did the unthinkable and became vegan. This coming from someone who had never been on a diet to going cold turkey and cutting out all animal products from one day to the next. However, life is all about balance, so cheat meals are just plain necessary and what better way to reward yourself for months of successfully sticking to a restrictive diet than with authentic, homemade pizza? Why pizza, you ask? Well, I believe in a past life I must have been Italian because the love I have for pizza, pasta, and wine is just not normal. The answer for any of the aforementioned items will ALWAYS be yes – vegan diet or not. Needless to say, I was over the moon when I found out that one of the new restaurants at CityPlace Doral was Angelo Elia Pizza (3535 NW 83rd Ave, Suite 133, Doral.) Even from just the entrance where an enormous wine vault affectionately greets you, I could tell this place had the potential to become a routine go-to option.
