Aaron Paul's Favorite Date-Night Food | AMA February 2016

How to Have the Perfect Date-Night Dinner, According to Aaron Paul and His Wife

Aaron Paul participated in a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) to promote his movie Triple 9, and among many other amazing things, he talked about food. Specifically, his favorite way to have date night with his "angelic creature of a wife," Lauren Parsekian (his words and also mine), which obviously involves pizza.

When asked, "What's your speciality dish when cooking at home?" Aaron said, "I like pizza. My wife, my angelic creature of a wife, got me the greatest gift one can get which is an outdoor pizza oven, and it cooks pizza in like, 60 seconds. I use it probably far too much. I feel like I have a 7 or 8 month old baby growing inside my stomach that needs to give birth now. So yeah, I love pizza."

Lauren recently showed off their pizza oven on Instagram, and you can tell how well it works — she topped her pie with marinara and BBQ sauce, mozzarella, goat cheese, basil, pineapple, red onions, and anchovies. YUM.

As for Aaron's favorite pizza joint, he said, "I think my favorite pizza joint (other than my backyard because I make a pretty damned good pizza) is Antico Pizza in Atlanta. It's the best pizza I've ever had."

He and his wife have shared too many cute pictures to count, but when asked what his dream date with her would be, he proved staying in with good food is always the best. "Aw man, I dunno. We keep it pretty chill. I think my favorite is ordering Thai food from Kung Pao Bistro and just laying laying around watching Netflix. That's really our favorite thing. We're the boring married couple. But it's the best. Nothing beats takeout and chill/hang with the wife. Maybe play some backgammon. Yeah. Netflix and chill, people." Aaron also graced the world with his superb taste in beer. "My favorite beer . . . That would have to be Dogfish Head 90. So good."

Another extremely important question raised in the AMA was, "What are your thoughts on guacamole?" Aaron's response was just as perfect as he is: "I love guacamole!"

So, take note, people — you don't always have to have have a red-carpet-worthy date night. All you need is pizza, beer, and guac.
