- Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson once ordered a pizza named after Kanye West, according to TMZ.
- The $23.75 Ham & Yeezy pizza is sold at Jon & Vinny's, a popular Italian restaurant in Los Angeles.
- I tried the pizza and loved the flavor of the ham and cheese, but overall it was too heavy for me.
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's whirlwind romance came to an end last week.
After a magic carpet ride, some tattoos, and a whole lot of Italian food, Kardashian and Davidson have called it quits.
Insider confirmed that the pair ended their relationship amicably after nine months of dating.
According to E!, the billionaire and comedian found "it really difficult to maintain a relationship" due to their busy schedules.
Before their split, Kardashian and Davidson made headlines with many of their date nights.
From Davidson's regular pizza place in Staten Island to Kardashian's go-to pasta spot in Santa Monica, the couple clearly loved some good Italian.
But their favorite appeared to be Jon & Vinny's in LA. According to TMZ, Kardashian and Davidson were once seen eating a pizza named after Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, at the restaurant. That same night, the reality star posted Instagram photos of herself and Davidson canoodling at their table — potentially sending a message to her famous ex amid their public feud.
I recently went to Jon & Vinny's to re-create Kardashian and Davidson's date night and try the Ham & Yeezy pizza.
Jon & Vinny's first opened in 2015 and now has three locations in LA, with another two on the way.
Jon Shook and Vinny Dotol wanted to create a menu they dubbed "California Italian." Jon & Vinny's dishes are inspired by Italian classics that the chefs' grandmothers used to make, but with fresh ingredients from the local farmers markets.
The restaurant also has a number of famous fans. Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been spotted at Jon & Vinny's, as have John Legend and Chrissy Teigen.
Jon & Vinny's has a laid-back vibe true to its California roots.
Everything is done in light-blonde wood, with the main pop of color coming from Jon & Vinny's green-and-white pizza boxes.
It's a very different atmosphere from the romantic seaside ambiance at Giorgio Baldi, where Kardashian took Davidson on one of their first public dates.
I went to the Jon & Vinny's location in Brentwood, taking my boyfriend Peter along to help me test out the menu.
Before trying the pizza, we ordered one of the most amazing salads I've ever tasted at a restaurant.
We tried the chopped antipasto salad, the same dish that appeared in Kardashian's Instagram photos with Davidson.
The $18.25 salad features soppressata salami and caciocavallo cheese along with lettuce, tomatoes, and garbanzo beans. It's topped with a shower of mozzarella cheese and some zesty Italian dressing.
I've had a lot of great salads in LA, but Peter and I were obsessed with this one. Every veggie tasted really fresh and crisp, and the salami and cheese added a delicious combo of subtle heat and salty savoriness.
"This is one of the best salads I've ever had," Peter declared. We had to ask our waitress to box up some of the salad early so we wouldn't be tempted to finish it before trying the rest of our dishes.
We also had to try some pasta.
Since Kardashian is a huge fan of the $30 agnolotti at Giorgio Baldi, I had to try Jon & Vinny's $19.75 version as well so I could compare.
We also ordered the $23.75 six-hour bolognese — a Chrissy Teigen favorite — and the $19.75 spicy fusilli, one of Jon & Vinny's most popular dishes.
Of the three dishes, I was surprised that the agnolotti was my clear favorite. I wasn't a huge fan of the dish at Giorgio Baldi, but I loved Jon & Vinny's interpretation of the Italian classic. The dish — which features brown butter, sage, and Parmigiano cheese — was so creamy and decadent. The agnolotti's filling was deliciously rich, and the brown butter added a hint of lovely sweetness.
Before digging into the Kanye West pizza, we also tried the classic Margherita.
Jon & Vinny's $17.75 Margherita pizza tasted as good as it looks. The thin crust was satisfyingly crispy, with a charred bottom that was perfectly flaky.
And the tomato sauce, topped with glistening globs of fresh mozzarella cheese, was incredible. It was deliciously rich and packed with so much flavor. I tend to avoid ordering Margherita pizzas because I find them underwhelming, but this pie from Jon & Vinny's was beyond memorable.
It was finally time for the Ham & Yeezy pizza.
The tabloids had a field day when Kardashian and Davidson ordered Jon & Vinny's Ham & Yeezy pizza. It seemed like the latest dig at Ye after he taunted the comedian on Instagram and in one of his music videos.
The $23.75 Ham & Yeezy pizza features smoked ham and smoked mozzarella, along with caciocavallo cheese, pickled Fresno chilies, and vodka sauce.
The Ham & Yeezy had a lot of great ingredients but overall was just a tad too heavy.
Everything on the Ham & Yeezy pizza was delicious individually. The smoked ham had great flavor, the smoked mozzarella and caciocavallo cheese packed a salty punch, and I loved the heat coming from the crisp Fresno chilis.
But throwing everything together made for a very dense pie that was just a bit too cheesy for me — and I'm one of the biggest cheese lovers out there.
I loved almost everything I tried at Jon & Vinny's, but I wouldn't get the Ham & Yeezy again.
The pizza was solid, but I only really wanted one slice. Sorry Ye, but the Margherita pizza at Jon & Vinny's was definitely supreme.
But overall, Jon & Vinny's was such an awesome spot. From the chill vibes to the delicious salad, pasta, and pizza, I thought almost every dish was fantastic. Plus, a date night at Jon & Vinny's was far cheaper than Giorgio Baldi or the River Cafe — where Kardashian and Davidson went for a romantic dinner in London.
Kardashian and Davidson's spark has faded, but at least we'll always have Jon & Vinny's Margherita pizza.
