Table Scraps 4/6/10

  • Cousin Vinny's Pizza is expanding yet AGAIN. Co-owner Rick Allen will open his sixth location in the York Commons area of Vandalia. He also claims he's looking to open two more stores in 2010, including one South of town - maybe Miamisburg. He's also eyeballing Englewood, Beavercreek, West Carrollton, Springifled and Springboro. At their rate they're picking up speed, I'd say all of those burbs will be begging for the own Vin's soon enough. The new North location will also be the first to showcase the "new" CV concept, which will focus more heavily on in-house dining and seat about 60 people. Did you know that Allen also earned the title "World's Fastest Pizza Maker" at the 2009 World Pizza Games in Vegas? Take that, Dayton haters. "Whaaaaaa!!! We don't have anything! There's nothing cool here!" Well, we have a dude that can make pizzas in 22 seconds, so choke on that, nay-sayers.
  • Speaking of pizza, there's a new joint opening in Kettering - Mama Mimis' Take & Bake Pizza. Same concept as Papa Murphy's, but on the fancier side. They're menu also sports salads, desserts, and something called "Spa pizzas," which are half the fat, calories and carbs of their regular pies. It's located in Castle Hills, which is at the corner of 48 and Stroop Rd.
  • Taste of Greene County is coming up in the next couple of weeks. Tickets are $18 in advance ($22 the day of) and the event will be held at the Nutter Center. If you're not familiar with this kind of things, you pay $18 at the door, and you walk around and eat food all day. So, for a paltry $5, you get to munch your way through offerings from:
Abuelo's Mexican Embassy
Beef O'Brady's
BD's Mongolian Grill
Brio Tuscan Grill
City BBQ
Ele Cake Co.
Young's Jersey Dairy
and about a dozen more.

  • La Tortilla Factory's "Smart & Delicious" high fiber/low carb tortillas in garlic & herb are the most kick-ass things that have ever happened to my lunch box. They're about 50 calories, 6 grams of fiber, 2 grams of fat and 4 net carbs. If you're doing Weight Watchers, this is probably close to zero points. Fill it with ham, turkey, tomatoes, Laughing Cow cheese and something with crunch (pine nuts, romaine, whatever), and you have an amazingly tasty, filling lunch (or dinner).

Just found your site and wanted to share my love for tortilla pizzas too! I have to admit that I make this at least 2-3 times a week for dinner with the La Tortilla Factory Low Carb/High Fiber Tortillas. Although we use the 80cals tortilla to make them a little bigger for dinner. :-)

They are a great size for pizza although we use the wraps for all of my meals too – breakfast (egg burritos), lunch (all types of wraps such as turkey, veggie..etc) and dinner although they can be also used for snacks (you just have to get creative).

If you are interested, we list one of my favorite recipes (Italian Veggie Pizza) on our site.

Hope you like the recipe! Thanks for great post and forward to reading more!
