To celebrate Mother’s Day, I went to A Tutta Pizza!(LA Foodbowl) This event located in the Hollywood Palladium was sponsored by Nissan, Hornitos, Maker’s Mark, and Italia to name a few. La Foodbowl holds fabulous food events all throughout the LA region for the month of May in hope to help raise awareness and funds to combat food waste, hunger, food insecurity, and promote sustainability.

A Tutta Pizza was my first ever food event! I had a lot of fun navigating the scene to make sure I could sample pizza from each of the 20+ pizza vendors on site. Unfortunately, I was not able to achieve that goal, but the next time I attend a similar event I will make sure I visit each table. I enjoyed the carbo-load, and ate every pizza slice in my proximity. 

Not only was there unlimited pizza, but LA Foodbowl also had workshops, panels, a photobooth, and a live DJ. I decided to attend the A’ Pizza! A Pizza Lab with Enzo Coccia workshop. There I was taught how to make pizza dough by hand like a true Italian. The workshop was led by Enzo Coccia. He even chose me to help him make deep fried pizza dough. On top of that, I met Jonathan Gold, renown restaurant critic for the LA Times. We even took a picture together.

I was very excited to see that many tables served margarita pizza, which is my favorite. I’m not ashamed to say, I stuffed my face with a few too many slices. As I said above, I attempted to make it around to each table, so I tried a variety of pizza flavors. I even tried pizza topped with purple brussel sprouts! It sounds crazy, but the pizza was both beautiful and tasty. You can’t say I didn’t eat any vegetables. My favorite pizza came from Ray’s and Stark Bar. Their pizza was topped with cute little purple flowers and the cheese was to die for. Personally the most important part of the pizza is cheese, that’s why I love margarita pizza so much. The Ray’s and Stark Bar pizza left a big impression on me and the other guests. It lined traveled across the festival site.
