Bottom’s Up!

Wednesday, we all went out to Bottom’s Up for my friend Kate’s birthday. I’d only been to Bottom’s Up pizza once before, about a year ago, so I must have forgotten how amazing the pizza was. I remember it being good, but woah. Stuzzi, I might have to revoke your title of the best pizza I’ve had in Richmond. Then again, the pizza styles are different, so maybe I’ll just give you a new category.

Bottom’s Up pizza has some seriously thick pizza crust, and it’s absolutely loaded with toppings. I know, I know, a lot of people prefer thin crust, but I think that’s just a lie, because we all know that thin crust is healthier. So while I often eat thin crust pizza… let’s be honest. A giant piece of thick fluffy pizza dough is kind of amazing. And when it’s loaded with toppings, you can’t really go wrong.

I enjoyed a slice and a half of the “Goat in the Garden” pizza, which was topped with fresh tomatoes, spinach, goat cheese, and roasted garlic.

Woah. It was quite amazing. We also had a group of about 16 people (separate checks, of course) and Bottom’s Up was SUPER accommodating, which I really appreciate. (I had made reservations for the patio, but temperatures were 97 degrees, so they actually set us up a table outside AND inside, just in case, and we were thankful to choose air conditioning!)

Since I was snapping pictures like a crazy person, the topic of food blogging came up, and Sebastian was so amazed that I had a food blog. He spent a solid 10 minutes on his iphone, looking at my posts. I promised him a shout out, so here you are Sebastian πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

I will absolutely be going back to this place. The prices were good, the service was excellent, and the pizza was delicious!

And if you’re looking for more Richmond news, I posted a quick recap of the RVA Fashion Bloggers meet up that I mentioned on Wednesday!

It’s over at Virginia Bloggers, if you want to check it out πŸ™‚

What’s your favorite thing to put on a pizza?


  1. Yummm!! There’s nothing quite like a pizza craving at 9am! πŸ™‚ Bottom’s Up is our favorite pizza & we love the atmosphere. It’s a treat that we only allow ourselves occasionally, but that might just have to take place SOON!

    Happy Friday! We look forward to meeting you on Sunday night!

  2. I haven’t been to Bottoms Up in ages, looks yummy though!! We need to organize a foodie dinner down at Tio Pablo nearby – after trying their food at Broad Appetit I can’t stop thinkin about it and Brittany and I thought it could be a fun dinner outing!! Happy Friday girl πŸ™‚

  3. Veggies, veggies, and more veggies! or pineapple. I don’t know what it is, but pineapple (although weird) goes perfectly on top of a pizza!

    anything but vegetables go great on a pizza, veggies are nasty

  5. i don’t know how i stumbled across your blog, but i just want you to know that i love it! πŸ™‚
    I can eat pizza everyday easy. My favorite is either BBQ chicken or just plain pepperoni.

  6. Pineapple is my favorite, too! I guess it is the sweet and savory thing. I went to Bottom’s Up for a rehearsal dinner. They do a great job with large groups.

  7. That pizza looks epic! I love goat’s cheese and figs or a mountain of veggie on my pizza. πŸ˜€

  8. I’ve never had goats cheese on a pizza but now I’m really craving it. YUM! I love anything with cheese, but my favourite pizza is pepperoni for sure!

  9. Spinach and goats’ cheese pizza sounds amazing; I haven’t had proper pizza since my coeliac diagnosis so I think that’s the one i’d try – but with mushrooms too… lovely picture of you all πŸ™‚

  10. love a lot of veggies on my pizza especially onions, and a some goat cheese is yummy too πŸ™‚

  11. Yumm..this pizza looks so good! I love goat’s cheese, but I have never had it on pizza!

  12. I found your blog via the Virginia is for Bloggers link and look forward to reading more πŸ™‚
    My favorite thing on pizza was something I had recently at Stone Hot Pizza in NoVA (not sure if it’s a chain?). It was eggplant, in the fire-wood-oven. There were other veges too, but the eggplant was the best part, with just a leeeeiiiiiittle bit of cheese. It was roasted and sooooo amazingly good!

  13. Pizzamazing. I’m usually a go-er for the thin crust, especially if its really brown and crunchy. Buuutt, that looks pretty good. Roasted garlic, so good.

  14. That looks amazing!! I love black olives on my pizza πŸ™‚

  15. Love that restaurant name. And I like a good thick crust.

  16. Bottoms Up…my fav. I’ve been wanting it forever and haven’t been in a year. Will be going SOON!
