  2. Blondies Pizza

    Blondies has six different locations, and their branding is on-point with pink and sass. The pizzeria in the pink building, they are known for from-scratch, fermented dough. With this, they create what they call “a beauty of a pie” and you can add either red or BLONDE sauce. We love also that they specify using full-fat mozzarella to blanket their pizza. If you’re gonna do it, do it with full fat mozzarella.
