St. John’s Red Storm (Queens, New York): La Famiglia Madison Square Garden Fiery Pizza

Since St. John’s will certainly be assured a place in the March Madness tournament due to their inspiring performance against Pitt, we definitely wanted to do some food-related documenting at the game.


Madison Square Garden is a New York institution. We procured some pizza from La Famiglia at the Garden, and created a culinary red storm by adding hot peppers to it. Laura enjoys anything spicy and anything pizza, and this was lent a special fiery spice by the excitement of the world’s best game. This wasn’t as home-made as some of our entries, nor did it require a recipe, but what is more New York than getting take-out pizza?
