Thanks Kono Pizza for providing us with samples to try!
Who doesn’t love Pizza?! It’s always been a family favorite but to be totally honest, I hate how messy eating pizza can be! Kono Pizza is a whole new pizza experience with its cone-shaped crust filled with fresh, Italian ingredients!
E and I recently visited Kono Pizza in Edison, NJ and had the opportunity to try some pizza cones! We were met by Co-Owner David Ragosa who explained the process of how Kono Pizza is made and how some ingredients, including the cones, are actually imported straight from Italy. The cones, which feature a thinner crust, are filled with fresh ingredients including a low-moisture cheese. This is all done right in front of you!
Kono offers some of your pizza favorites in a cone including classic Margherita- mozzarella, tomato sauce, and fresh basil and specialties like the Carni Kono Pizza cone- mozzarella, tomato sauce, sausage, bacon and ham. Kono Pizza also has other options like their breakfast, deli, and dessert cones. The Kono possibilities are endless!
Once the cone is filled with fresh ingredients, Kono Pizza uses a special oven (seen below) to bake them in about 3 minutes. The whole process takes a bout 3 1/2 minutes so there is very little wait time (which is great if you have hungry, restless kids)!
As most of you may know, I’m on my weight loss journey so I appreciate that Kono Pizza cones are only 250-280 calories each and are a better choice compared to a traditional 450 calorie pizza slice! The cones are also very filling so I finish it feeling satisfied.
I was a little leary of trying the Pizza Cone because I wasn’t sure what to expect but once I took that first bite, I was sold on it! I didn’t think I’d be able to come across anything that could completely replace a slice of pizza but a Kono Pizza cone does it for me! I feel that the cheese and sauce are the two most important things that go into a pizza and Kono’s are perfect. The tomato sauce was flavorful and the cheese tasted exactly how fresh mozzarella should taste!
E tried a Margherita and a Pollo Parmigiana kid size Kono Pizza come which are perfect for little hands! I ate most of the Pollo Parmigiana Kono Pizza cone because it was absolutely delicious! It tasted just like the chicken parm my dad used to make when I was kid! Only this time, it was in a cone.
E really enjoyed both the kids Margherita cone and the little bit of the Pollo Parmigiana she was able to eat before I took it over. I could tell by the way she was devouring the Kono Pizza cone, her favorite part was the cheese second to the cone! Kono Pizza cones are virtually mess free so I didn’t have to worry about pizza grease and sauce getting all over the place. I’m sure parents will appreciate the no-mess factor, I know I do! This is another reason why Kono Pizza is perfect for on the go as well.
David also suprised E with a fun treat, a Nutella Rosso which is Nutella and strawberries in a cone! I’m not exaggerating when I say that she loved it! I mean, who doesn’t love the taste of Nutella? When it came time to leave Kono Pizza, E didn’t want to part with her cone so we took it with us. She ended up snacking on it on the way home.
I personally can’t wait to go back and try a deli cone like the Prosciutto & Mozzarella cone or a Tiramisu cone which sounds divine!
Kono Pizza is a wonderful restaurant that the whole family will enjoy! They are located in Edison, NJ but you can check the Kono Pizza website for more locations opening soon. If you are in the Edison area or plan to stop through at some point, I highly recommend trying a Kono Pizza cone!
