Midici Neapolitan Pizza - Sherman Oaks Grand Opening

Midici pizza just opened in Sherman Oaks about a week ago and I was invited to try their food.
I really enjoyed everything here. Not only they serve good food, but also everything is fresh and cheap! The pizza dough is only using 4 ingredients, Non-GMO double zero Neapolitan, water, sea salt and yeast. That's it. And the sauce is super natural. Only one pure ingredients; non-GMO crushed Italian peeled tomatoes. No oil, no sugars.

MidiCi’s mission statement is “We Bring Friends Together”. The first MidiCi restaurant will offer guests fully personalized, authentic Neapolitan pizzas, baked in traditional wood-fired ovens hand-made in Naples, Italy – the same way they were built over 100 years ago.

Wood Fire-Roasted vegetable tapas (your choice of 3 veggies) $5
fingerling potatoes, zucchini, and artichoke hearts

Unfortunately, it was too greasy for me. They seems to put too much oil on it.

My customized pizza $11.50
mushrooms, eggplant, broccolini, meatball and ham, no cheese.

I really liked my pizza, specially the dough. It reminds me of Naan.

cafe latte $3.50

Signature nutella calzone, fresh berries and banana $6

Since it says "best seller", I had to try it, even I was so full. The calzone was huge. And it was absolutely delicious. It's big enough for 2-3 people.


I received swag bag filled with these goodies. Since I do cook and I LOVE coffee, I'm just so happy.

Lahtt hot sauce

Lahtt hot sauce, it just came out in market this month. You can use it as a condiment, or marinade, or stir-fry. This hot sauce is really hot. I tried 1/8 tsp and it was pretty spicy. It's really rich in flavor, don't even think it's just like other Siracha sauce, because it's not.

Lahtt Sauce is made of 17 different, premium all-natural ingredients. The most authentic, sophisticated Asian gourmet hot sauce available craft. Made small-batch, all-natural, no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. No MSG or high fructose corn syrup.

I really like this hot sauce. Yes, it's Authentic Asian hot sauce.

Lift Care Lemon Essential Oil 5x Extra Strength

Lemon Essential Oil has a powerfully fresh traditional lemon fragrance that is quite energizing and uplifting. You can diffuse Lemon Oil when trying to clear a room of the smell of the cigarette smoke and other unpleasant aroma

When the skin becomes oily, lemon oil provides a natural tonifier, balancing and rejuvenating the skin when used properly. Simply diluting a natural carrier oil such as jojoba or soy with 1 percent lemon oil provides the necessary components to assure proper absorption and penetration to the skin.

Refreshing feelings of purity and cleanliness describe the savory fragrance of lemon oil.
Lemon oil deploys antiseptic effects on fresh minor infections of the skin, including acne.

Lift Care's Lemon oil carries the strongest concentrate because it is taken from the peel of ripe fruit via cold expression. This means less drops are needed per use because of the higher concentration, LONGER LASTING AROMATHERAPY, purify and cleanses your body with more VITAMIN C, LIGHTENS FRECKLES AND BLEMISHES, and can be used in formula for SOAP or NATURAL DISINFECTANT.
Lemon Oil has a variety of uses including a natural and CHEMICAL FREE DISINFECTANT for bathrooms, sinks, and tables. Apply on freckles, scars, and age spots to lighten. Drink with a glass of water to DETOX and PURIFY the body. Some of the purported benefits of using lemon oil are that it can prevent cancer, free up the lymphatic system and respiratory system, and can be used to reduce inflammation in the body. You can start using lemon oil in baths or using it in a detox shake to add this to your lifestyle. Our Extra Strength concentration allows for fewer drops to obtain maximum efficiency.
