Delicious Neapolitan Gluten-free Pepperoni Pizza In Huntington Beach

Gluten-free pepperoni pizza in Huntington Beach.

After a long day, sometimes you just want to eat pizza. It’s simple. It’s easy. And it’s take out. How can you beat that? And as far as I know, I’m not allergic to gluten. The main reason why I order gluten-free is for the chewy dough.  I have no idea if all gluten-free pizza taste like this but I’m enjoying it. The crust is chewy and the pepperoni is so crispy. The red sauce isn’t too thick either.  If you’re interested in trying something different, give Spin Pizza a try.

His Style

Shadow Art w/ Simon Spurr Sportcoat, Official Crown of Laurel, and Body Rags

Simon Spurr and Body Rags fashion shoot with street fashion photographer, John Ussenko in Huntington Beach.

I’m in a great mood and sharing some of my art, personal fashion styles, and brands with all of you. Plain and simple. And I love what I did with this fashion shoot. Best one yet!  I discovered this narrow alley in Huntington Beach off the PCH.  It was mid-day and time to try out a few concepts with shadows.  This is one of my very first Simon Spurr sportcoats that I purchased way back in the day. It has that punk rock kind of look and of course my friends can always find me when it’s dark outside.  The Body Rags tshirt happens to be one of my favorite designs and you’ll see me in it a lot. I’ll have to remember not to do so many fashion shoots with it on though.

Surfing 10-12ft Barrels At Huntington Beach Pier

Lifestyle photographer, John Ussenko captures a surfer in a barrel at the Huntington beach pier during a 10-12ft swell.

I heard on the news that 10-12ft swells were hitting today so I decided to grab my gear and check it out. I’ve heard about Huntington Beach being a great place to surf.  Granted, I’m not a surfer but I played in the waves of Bali, Phuket, and Costa Rica to know what a good wave looks like.  And today didn’t let me down. The 10-12ft swells definitely made the difference. I arrived on the pier around 10:55 am and walked towards Ruby’s Diner, I know, kind of cool to have a burger joint at the end of the pier.   I  already attached my long lens to my camera so all I had to do was setup in a place where I thought I could capture some great shots.  I don’t know any of the surfers but if you do, just let me know and I’ll make sure to give them a copy.

Gluten-Free Pizza With Mushrooms

When I’m tired and feel like some pizza, I tend to grab a gluten-free one at Spin Pizza.  I’m not allergic to gluten, well, I don’t think I am. How do I know? All I can say is that I feel better after eating it and my stomach doesn’t bloat up. Maybe it’s all in my mind. I have friends that are highly allergic to gluten and they definitely know when they eat it. Personally, I like the chewy texture of gluten-free dough.
