Spin Pizza invited me to a Bloggers Lunch where I was fed lots of complimentary yummy food and drinks.
I love blogging
It’s great to be able to connect with other people who also love to save money! But sometimes, working from home can get a bit solitary — today was an exception since I was invited to a special Blogger get-together hosted by SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza in Orange, CA!
It’s always fun to have lunch with friends, and even better when it’s a group of fun ladies who also blog. Blogging is just like any other industry, with it’s own lingo that might sound like another language to the uninitiated. And being independent writers, we mostly work on our own, except for quick exchanges on Twitter or in our Facebook groups. It’s not often that we get a chance to meet face-to-face, but when we do — it always makes for a great afternoon.
So on that note, we were invited to:
(Or in English, SPIN! EAT! ENJOY!) at SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza in Orange, CA!
SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza isn’t your typical pizza place at all. Rather than focusing on a “delivery” model, SPIN! is a fast casual restaurant that’s a perfect place for families and friends to gather. Located right across from the Cinemark Century Stadium 25 & XD Theaters in the Stadium Promenade Center and about a mile from Angel Stadium of Anaheim and the Honda Center, SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza is a great place to gather before a movie, game or concert event. The SPIN! menu options are extensive (even for those with dietary concerns)
SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza originated in 2005 and now has 4 locations in the Kansas City area. The Orange, CA location at 1623 West Katella Katella in Orange is their first location in California and is owned and operated by The Hofman Hospitality Group. If you’re a fan of Hof’s Hut and/or Lucille’s BBQ restaurants, know you can expect the same quality at SPIN! (Fun fact! The Pollo di BBQ e Pineapple Pizza features Lucille’s BBQ sauce!)
SPIN! offers a unique selection of hand-spun, stone fired, tradition thin crust pizza. You can choose this traditional crust or go with the whole wheat or gluten-free option – all are made fresh daily.
The toppings are amazing – not the kind of toppings you get from the local delivery place. At SPIN! toppings and ingredients are roasted in their stone hearth oven each day and include mushrooms, caramelized onions, artichokes, capers, pecans, pineapple, pine nuts and pancetta. Many are marinated before the roasting to further enhance the flavors. You can customize your pizza further – get a Pizza Rossa base made with crushed roma tomatoes or try a Pizza Bianca made from a roasted olive oil glaze…seriously yum!
Almost everything on the menu can be made Gluten free and there are dairy free cheeses available. If you have other food concerns, let them know.
The SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza menu is truly artisan — created with James Beard Award Winning Chef, Michael Smith. All the soups, dressings, pizza toppings are prepared fresh daily from fresh produce and meats.
If you’re not feeling pizza when you visit, there’s also a wide selection of appetizers, salads, soups, panini, and Italian deli sandwiches. And you can’t leave without trying one of the amazing Gelatos!
Gelatos are created with fresh fruit, real extracts and made with milk, cream, sugar and other pure and simple ingredients. I recommend the Raspberry White Chocolate Gelato. I’m still thinking about it!
My husband will love the SPIN! Bin – a selection of premium wines priced well below traditional full service restaurants ($18 – $30) There’s a nice selection available by the glass for $7.95. Craft beers are available by way of the unique SPIN! Bicycle Wheel Tap, designed by the owners! And if you like Sangria (perfect for a warm summer lunch date with friends ), SPIN! offers 3 varieties, White Pinot Grigio, Red Chianti or…wait for it…Blood Orange!
I will definitely be back for our next date night … and you have a chance to win a $30 Gift Card to SPIN!
