Gourmet Pizza (4 options)

img_pizzaPizza! I totally love it. I could honestly eat it every single day but I don’t because pizza doesn’t necessarily love me. Due to my allergies to mold, ragweed, and pollen, my monthly pizza quota is 2 slices. However, this month, I’ve gone ├╝ber overboard. Blame it on the weather; gloomy days and rain evoke pizza eating. I’ve been a bad girl but I’m back to my senses now.

I have not one but 3 recommendations for yummy, healthy pizza made with consideration and fresh ingredients:

1. Pie By The Pound – located in Union Square, NYC serving pizza by the pound allowing you to sample their massive selection of pies – choose from regular, whole-wheat or gluten-free crusts. Plus they have a $1 PBR Happy Hour Special — the owners must be from the mid-west.

2. Franny’s – located 8 minutes from my home in Brooklyn, NY, it’s taken me 5 years to visit this lovely gourmet pizza eatery and wine bar, but that won’t happen again. On the back of their menu is a full list of resources who supply Franny’s with their fresh, locally-produced ingredients. more restaurants should do this!

3. L’asso’s – deliciously divine!!

4. American Flatbread (frozen pizza) – last week would be the third time I’ve bought frozen pizza in many years, available at Whole Foods and the Park Slope Food Coop , this brand is absolutely divine. I ate the Ionian Awakening in 2 sittings. At the bottom of the box, there’s a note that reads:

NO PRESERVATIVES, COLORANTS, FLAVOR ENHANCERS, OR DOUGH CONDITIONERS ARE EVER USED IN AMERICAN FLATBREAD–NEVER, EVER.

They also offer a vegan pizza.
