My sister and I met for dinner last week at Spin! Neopolitan Pizza in Alameda. We love getting their Mini Mia deals, which are make your own combos of a 6 inch pizza and salad of your choice. We got their Arugala salad minus the cheese:
We also got their Caesar’s salad:
Having been to Naples, Italy before, I would call the crust an attempt to be “Neopolitan” but not chewy enough to be truly “Neopolitan”. (see post https://justcallmequeen.wordpress.com/2014/09/21/eating-our-way-t…ugh-naples-italy/). We split their Margherita:
And their prociutto, fig, and spinach over onion marmalade:
I liked this a lot. There was a good amount of fig mixed against the savory onion marmalade. The spinach offered good texture and fiber to the pizza. 🙂 Most of the time, you see a combination like this at more fancy establishments and so it was nice to see it so accessible. Though this place is a chain, it’s not your average pizza joint and it’s a great deal for your money.
For dessert, we headed around the corner to Cream. http://creamnation.com/ I’ve written about this place before (https://justcallmequeen.wordpress.com/2016/01/09/cream/). I got an ice cream sandwich with red velvet cookies surrounding some cookies and cream ice cream:
And my sister got some toasted almond in a cone
