The New York Giants drafted Iowa safety Dane Belton with the 114th selection in this year’s NFL Draft and he’s set to embark on his first professional training camp this summer.

The Tampa native is always very green when it comes to the Northeast, especially with New York metro area cuisine like bagels and pizza.

“I didn’t,” Belton told Hawkeye Report when asked if he had checked out any of the local pizza or bagel restaurants. “Right now, I’m basically eating food from the establishment, so hopefully when I have a few days off and go to New York, I can venture outside.”

The Giants drafted Belton in hopes he can become a key cog in defending coordinator Wink Martindale this year and beyond.

At 6-foot-1, 205 pounds, Belton has played both safety and “hybrid” linebacker at Iowa and the Giants could push him into a similar role when he arrives at camp next month.

At rookie minicamp, Belton got a test of what was to come.

“In college, I played that star role as well as security,” Belton said. “Right now I’m just working on learning both the safeties and being able to be versatile, that’s the most important thing for me.

“Being able to play multiple positions in college translates to blitzing off the edge, covering deep and match routes below. Just shows the versatile aspect to myself. And right now I’m just learning about safety, but once I feel like I figured that out, I hope they can move me.

That’s the plan.

If you love pizza, you’re not alone. A few years ago, at the request of the California Pizza Kitchen chain, the Harris Poll conducted a survey of attitudes toward pizza among more than 2,000 American adults. The study found that, if they could only eat one food for the rest of their lives, 21% of participants would choose pizza – more than any other food by far.

About three billion pizzas are sold in America each year, and we consume an average of 23 pounds (or 46 slices) per capita per year. Much of it, of course, comes frozen from the supermarket or is delivered (or picked up) by one of the big multi-unit pizza suppliers, like Domino’s or Pizza Hut or a slightly smaller local chain. Some of the latter operations do a very good job.

In all, there are about 77,000 pizzerias and specialty pizza restaurants in America. This includes chains large and small, but also a large number of individual establishments or operations with only a handful of outposts. (These are the US cities with the most pizzerias.)

To compile a list of the best pizzerias in each state, 24/7 Tempo consulted and extrapolated from lists, ratings and reviews from websites including The daily meal, Eater, Food & Wine, Initiated, Reader’s Digest, PBS, far and wide, Mashed, Thrillistand Yelpas well as numerous local and regional sites.

There are many different styles of pizza across the country. One estimate mentions as many as 24 – although probably only 10 or 12 are common, among them Neapolitan, Sicilian, Deep Dish, New York Style, Detroit Style and New Haven Style (named after the metropolis of Connecticut which some consider to be the pizza capital of the country).

The pizza places on our list represent many possible styles, and some serve several different styles to appeal to a wide range of customers. Some of these establishments go wild with non-traditional toppings (corn, kale, barbecue sauce), while others specialize in simple cheese pizzas or pies with just a few toppings.

According to another Harris poll, this one ordered last year by Hormel, the most popular of these additions in the United States is the small, mildly spiced salami-like sausage called pepperoni, which topped the second most popular, sausage, from 38% to 15%.

Most of the pizzerias on this list also serve other Italian dishes, from paninis to pastas to main dishes in their own right, but pizza is their top priority. Reflecting current food preferences in the United States, it can also be noted that many of these places offer gluten-free crusts and/or vegan cheese and sometimes even vegan pepperoni.

Breakfast has taken a big hit in the last two years of the pandemic, but it looks like the daytime portion is slowly but surely bouncing back.

With so many people leaving the office temporarily or permanently, breakfast consumer traffic dropped drastically after the onset of the pandemic, with people increasingly getting breakfast at home instead. than outside.

Asad Amin of Ipsos recently wrote for RestoBiz that breakfast traffic growth was strongest in a daytime period year-over-year between February 2021 and February 2022, although still below pre-pandemic levels . QSRs still dominate morning traffic (74%), but FSRs are slowly starting to regain their morning share, both weekdays and weekends.

New data from Technomic suggests that, overall, breakfast was up 4% on menus over the year between Q1 2021 and Q2 2022, a marked improvement from the decline 8% of breakfast products from pre-pandemic (Q4 2019) to present.

As breakfast day begins to show signs of recovery, data from the company’s Ignite menu has revealed that some creative breakfast dishes are being seen alongside tried-and-true classics regaining momentum.

In particular, breakfast pizza appears to be growing in popularity, topping the list of fastest growing breakfast items with 175% year-on-year growth. These pizzas often contain classic breakfast ingredients such as eggs, bacon and Hollandaise sauce.

Technomic notes that breakfast pizza reflects a broader trend of mashups of the day, something operators are gravitating towards more as a way to cross-use ingredients and maximize SKUs while delivering innovative new offerings. .

Along with breakfast pizza, fish sandwiches are seeing 53% growth as breakfast entrees, most often in the form of bagel sandwiches with smoked salmon. This sandwich is both a portable and high-protein breakfast, making it a more convenient and health-focused option.

Examples of classic comfort food offerings like waffles/Belgian waffles and Eggs Benedict/Florentine are also popping up on breakfast menus, aligning with the broader trend for classic comfort food to find noticeable momentum. during the pandemic.

Finally, breakfast meals are also increasing on menus as consumers continue to seek value-oriented offerings amid general inflation, wage pressures and menu price increases.

Can I cook frozen pizza in an air fryer? https://bantamnyc.com/can-i-cook-frozen-pizza-in-an-air-fryer/ Wed, 15 Jun 2022 04:00:00 +0000 https://bantamnyc.com/can-i-cook-frozen-pizza-in-an-air-fryer/ It may not be some kind of fancy Ooni, but by God can it raise pies that have spent their lives on ice When people started promoting their air fryers the same way they had once promoted their slow cookers and instapots, I was immediately skeptical.

It may not be some kind of fancy Ooni, but by God can it raise pies that have spent their lives on ice

When people started promoting their air fryers the same way they had once promoted their slow cookers and instapots, I was immediately skeptical. But then an air fryer landed in my kitchen after a Christmas purse, and I became an air fry fanatic. I air fry the leftovers. I air fry bagels. I’m frying Oreos. And with dinner time just around the corner and frozen pizza being the only edible in my apartment, I thought I’d try air frying that too.

My setup. Yes, I live in Chicago. Yes, we eat a thin crust.

But first, can you actually cook frozen pizza in the air fryer? “Heating and baking pizza in an air fryer is one of the best ways to live,” says professional chef and pizza cookbook author Jim Mumford. “A professional pizza oven provides 500 degrees of dry heat on the pizza, so what an air fryer lacks in heat (most only go up to 400 degrees) it makes up for in air movement.”

The hot air blowing over the pizza “wicks away moisture extremely well – like a fancy pizza stone would – resulting in a wonderfully crispy pizza on either the first day or the fourth day,” he adds. So all in all, an air fryer is arguably a step up from the big, bulky oven in your kitchen.

How to cook a frozen pizza in the air fryer

Every air fryer is different, but Mumford advises air fry pizza chefs to cook frozen pizza at 350 degrees for four to six minutes. If your oven doesn’t have a preheat option, just set it to 350 degrees and set the timer for eight minutes. Chances are a whole frozen pizza won’t fit in the small basket of your air fryer, so you’ll have to cook it in batches. While your oven is preheating, cut your frozen pizza into wedges using a large butcher blade (or crescent pizza cutter) like this:

Using the larger blade, you don’t need to slice or roll, as the long edge should allow you to simply press down and wedge the frozen dough into separate pieces.

Then put the rest of the frozen pizza back in the freezer and put a quarter in the air fryer basket. If you have pepperoni pizza, place the air fryer rack on top of the slice of pizza or use toothpicks to keep them from flying in the oven.

Again, says Mumford, “four to six minutes should be a solid starting point for most brands.” But depending on the size and thickness of your slice, it doesn’t hurt to keep an eye on things so your pizza doesn’t overcook (see below).

As you can see, at six minutes my slice got a little burnt. My second attempt, however – just three minutes away – went much smoother. In fairness both were well cooked and crispy so you win either way.

How Reheat leftover pizza in the air fryer

In order to exhaust all the situations of cooking pizza in the air fryer, I asked Mumford for some advice on reheating leftover pizza. “I would start a slice reheated at 350 degrees for two to three minutes,” he says. “Lay a piece of aluminum foil at the very bottom of the air fryer—under the basket—to catch drippings of grease.”

How to make pizza in the air fryer

And if you want to cook a personal pizza from scratch in the air fryer, Mumford has you covered, too. “I bake small pizzas in my air fryer all the time,” he says. “Montanara pizza is a style of pizza that is quickly fried to set the crust, then baked to finish the toppings.”

To make your own, roll out the pizza dough in the shape of your air fryer, brush it with a little olive oil and cook on the highest temperature for two minutes. “Remove, flip, don’t burn yourself, and top your pizza. A simple margarita pizza plays well,” recommends Mumford. “Then finish at 350 degrees for another three to four minutes or until your cheese is melty and amazing. It will beat microwave pizza rolls 10 times out of 10.”

Pigeon bagel could be Toronto’s answer to New York’s famous pizza rat https://bantamnyc.com/pigeon-bagel-could-be-torontos-answer-to-new-yorks-famous-pizza-rat/ Fri, 10 Jun 2022 17:01:00 +0000 https://bantamnyc.com/pigeon-bagel-could-be-torontos-answer-to-new-yorks-famous-pizza-rat/ Toronto may be a bustling urban mass of concrete, steel, bricks, asphalt and lots of glass, but wildlife is never too far away.

Toronto may be a bustling urban mass of concrete, steel, bricks, asphalt and lots of glass, but wildlife is never too far away.

Some animals adapt and thrive in these urban conditions, living and saving humans to the point that they are no longer considered wild animals. It was captured too hilariously with instances of raccoons stealing food delivery orders off porches and even a squirrel scurrying down the road with a 7-Eleven taquito in tow.

But there’s a new contender in the battle to become Toronto’s official pet. Enter Bagel Pigeon.

In a video shared with blogTO, Instagram user Ashley Vols captured a pigeon casually relaxing at the southeast corner of Simcoe and Richmond around 4.20pm on Thursday. Alright, I’ll be more specific. It was a pigeon carrying a bagel.

Three other pigeons stand nearby as if on guard, protecting their carbohydrate-capped comrade.

“I think it was an all-purpose bagel,” Vols told blogTO. This would be completely understandable as a pigeon’s preference for the bagel variety, since it’s basically seasoned with birdseed.

While one could interpret the video as a pigeon stuck in a hollowed-out bagel, Vols says the bird “had no interest in moving or freeing itself from the bagel, and I have my mind that it intentionally put this bagel around his neck for safekeeping.”

Pigeons are known as prolific scavengers, but seeing one of these winged rats carrying a bagel like edible baked bra for later consumption shows just how creative they can be.

City animals that persevere by stealing human food are often unexpected social media darlings, making unlikely stars like New York City’s famous Pizza Rat.

As the famous Jeff Goldblum said in the first episode (and the only one to watch) of the Jurassic Park franchise, “life, uh, finds a way”.
