I wrote a bit about TJ's Woodfire Pizza
for the mag in 2011...
In February, upon discovering them at the Irvine Great Park Farmers Market:
Bringing pizza to the people?gimme a Mobile Pizza Unit, stat!!!!!
And then in June, when they were the print edition SnapShot feature:
Pizza to Go
plus an interesting update in the blog:
New this & that for TJ?s Woodfire Pizza?excellently good this & that
wherein it was revealed that they switched to using my beloved Carmelina tomatoes, the end of my long search for tomatoes w/NO JUNK, covered in this OCFN topic on the subject
and in the blog: Great tomatoes with NO JUNK?the local part is just gravy
Thus far, though the only OCFN mench of TJ's has been in the Great Park Farmers Market topic
, and well, coming up on a year of happy patronage, I think they deserve their own.
The other week we stopped by the Great Park specifically for their pizza and were as per usual SO glad we did. Great seeing Tina and Tim and having the requisite geeky flour-dough-oven-char-extensibility sort of chat that I find endlessly fascinating. Ivan and Tim talked firewood, too. And the pizza? SO GOOD. We added their New Mexico green chiles that day to the four cheese, and had a garden, too. ❤ Oh, and a new one that day which was finished with a drizzle of lemon olive oil over its pesto base. Yes; good.
Resolved: More TJ's in 2012!!!
