Pizza Boy in Glendale


Have you had this pizza called Ajarski? I'm not an expert when it comes to this dish and had to google the origin. Turns out this is a traditional Georgian dish of cheese-filled bread shaped of a boat and there's an egg baked inside a bed or mozzerella cheese! So you're suppose to pull the bread apart and dip it into the cheesy egg mixture. It's definetely a hands on food where you must use your fingers to eat it. Living in Glendale for over 2 decades, I didn't even know this kind of food existed! No one ever told me about Ajarski or about Pizza boy. They sell regular pizza's but are also known for their Ajarski. Somehow this food made its way over and became popular with the Armenian people. Again I'm not too familiar with the history of this dish but it's quite delicious and something everyone needs to try at least once. It's fairly a rich and heavy meal that will fill you up quickly.

The boat shaped bread is filled with mozzerella cheese and you'll see one or two eggs baked right inside the cheese! It makes a beautiful cheese pull too! I had to take half of mine home and reheat it in the toaster oven the next day. The first couple of bites were absolutely delicious this was too rich and dense to finish in one seating.

Just looking at this dish makes me happy though. Doesn't it look pretty? Goes perfectly well with a side of greens. A simple meal that can be easily shared with two people. I'm excited to try this at other restaurants now that I know what Ajarski taste like!

How I got myself to work as a content creator for Jojo's Kitchen inside Haven City in Rancho Cucamonga... Haven City is a food hall that opened in 2019 around October. It's a fairly new place that has a hip vibe and many great restaurants serving delicious eats. I did a couple of media events for a handful fo restaurants and they've seen a sucessful growth of business. One day the owner of Jojo's Kitchen asked if I would be interested in working as his restaurants content creator. Having a good number of followers on Instagram and Youtube proved that I was able to make some eye catching content by creating videos and photo's. The audience is intrigued by delicious photo's of food or eye catching fun video clips. This also visually helps the potential future customers to try the food that they've tasted with their eyes. I saw first hand how the pandemic fractured a small business that was ready for take off. However, good food is what helps a business survive and keep it moving forward. You can do all the advertising across every social media outlets but if your food is dull and boring, the word of mouth spreads quickly and can damage your sales. Jojo's Kitchen uses their deep family home recipe made by the owners grandmother and father. Many Taiwanese customers had said this food reminds them of home back in Taiwan. That's when you know that your food is quite legit and it'll cause the customers to repeatly come back for more!
