Foodie News x Restaurant Reviews x Hip-Hop Attitude

In 2010, I (Nick Love) spent over 45% of my annual income eating out at some of Atlanta's best (and worst) restaurants. So, who better to guide you through the city's crowded dining terrain?? Now, I, along with my team of Hip-Hop generation foodies, will expose and review ATL's newest hits, hidden gems, and old favorites. Hopefully, this blog will earn us a free meal or two while we point you guys in the direction of some good food and steer you away from the wackness. Let's eat!!!

VIDEO: ATL Bite Life Hits Up The Pizza Making Class @ Double Zero Napoletana

About a week ago, the ATL Bite Life crew was invited to take part in the Pizza Making Class at Double Zero Napoletana off of Roswell Rd.  This was my first time at Double Zero, so I was very excited to get a first hand account of the ambiance, service, and food that Nick raved about in his review.  If it was really all that he said it was, I knew I was in for a treat.

Walking in, I didn't get the vibe of a pizza spot.  It gave me the feel of an upscale Italian restaurant with its dimmed lights, bar area, and two dining rooms.  My expectations were already exceeded.

As I joined the others attending the class, we were introduced to Nate, one of the amazing pizzaiolos at Double Zero, who facilitated our class and gave us the ins and outs of pizza making.  Nate also gave us the story behind the gigantic ovens that you'll see in the video above.  These specially handcrafted Ferrara ovens are so big, the restaurant was literally built AROUND them.  Oh, and they get crazy hot, I'm talking temperatures exceeding 800 degrees.

Now, I know it was a pizza making class but I never expected to actually press out my own dough (with the help of Nate, of course).  We had the option of several toppings, our sauce, and types of cheese to choose from.  For my pizza, I chose their delicious San Marzano Tomato sauce.  San Marzanos are a less bitter tomato so they give a bit of sweetness to the pizza.  Then, I decided to go with their fresh mozzarella, olives, wild mushrooms, and caramelized onions for my toppings.  In no time, Joel (probably the World's best server) came out with my pizza.  And when I say that pizza was awesome. . .   Matter of fact, it was beyond awesome!!!  Nothing like the commercial pizza places that I frequent.  Honestly, I don't think I can go back to commercial pizza after tasting the authentic pizza that Double Zero makes.

You guys gotta try this pizza and of course the other items on the menu. Join us for the next pizza making class.  It's delicious and lots of fun!!!  Trust me, it's worth the drive.

Oh, and before I go, I wanna shout out two of Double Zero's regular customers - Ellen and her son.  These two absolutely LOVE Double Zero and I think you will too.

Happy Eating!

Never had pizza that tasted this good! Guess it's b/c I never had an authentic Neapolitan-style pizza. Thanks, Double Zero!
