Who Says Vegans Can’t Have Fun?


We’ve been big fans of Pieces Pizza for years. Not only is the pizza terrific, the staff is consistently warm and welcoming and I like the establishment’s quirky, casual vibe. I dropped in recently with my kids for a few slices of pepperoni, and spied perhaps the loveliest and most colorful pizza I have ever seen displayed on the counter. Turns out it was Pieces’ vegan pizza, topped with pretty much every vegetable in the place, plus warm chunks of pineapple and a scattering of something called “soyrizo”–the vegan alternative to chorizo. My mouth watered when I saw this fantastic assemblage of veggies, and I would have ordered a piece if I hadn’t already committed to the pepperoni. Of course, I would prefer real, meaty chorizo (and some melted cheese), but I would be happy to play vegan for a day just to sink my teeth into that produce-laden pizza. (Note: Pieces is a cash-only establishment).
