It was like a crazy Gelato weekend!
I went to two different Gelato places in one weekend.
How odd is that?
Did I have Gelato? No Why? Because this is America
and Americans don't seem to make Soy Gelato as freely as Italians.
But I had loads of Sorbetto to sop up my tears.
That makes no sense.....
I have been wanting to try Mercurio's in Shadyside for a while..
Well, since I heard they had a wood fired oven for making their pizzas
You know you can't recreate the taste of Firenze without some fire!
That slight charring of the crust adds flavor and character to the pie.
I'm sweating a bit just thinking about the taste-bud overload.
August 18th I finally got my chance to go!
And how cute is the little cup?
I would show you the pizza, but I ate the whole thing
No worries. I went to a 2 hour line dancing class after.
Tee hee hee....
But I can tell you it was delicious.
All I needed was some pepperoncini oil
and the transportation to firenze would have been almost complete.
The prices are super affordable.
$.0.70 an ounce.
Go there for the Pizza,
Stay for the Gelato.
This place is definitely going into the rotation.

I went to this place to use my Groupon on August 19th.
At first I gave the Groupon to my dad.
He was going to give them to somone else thinking it was too far.
But then he realized it might be worth the drive
and asked me to come along.
I was not optimistic when we pulled up to a strip mall.
Rude! I know I am but what are you.
|Objects in mirror are as narrow as they appear....|
|multitude of flavors|
Tee hee hee!
That probably adds to the appeal of the place for me.
Walking distance to other delightful places for noshing...
And you recyclers and re-users out there
will be happy to hear I saved the little Gelato cups
and am using them as jewelry catch-alls.
So cute and colorful!
