We are all becoming more aware of the Green Initiative. Whether you want to admit it or not, we live on a planet of finite resources, and going Green is being smart. Enter Pizza Fusion.
The organic pizzeria located on Peachtree Road, in Buckhead, gives Atlantans more than one thing to feel good about every time they dine there. Good quality fresh food, organic and vegan choices, gluten free crusts, and all at a reasonable price.
I opted to dine on the sidewalk of Peachtree Road for lunch last week. The weather was perfect for patio lunches under the shade of a big umbrella.
I scanned the menu for something delicious, something natural, only to find that those were the criteria for everything on the menu. Pizza Fusion boasts an all natural selection, from their organic mozzarella cheese to their hormone and antibiotic free range chicken.
My waiter informed me of the lunch special. Only $8.99 for a cheese, pepperoni, or Farmer's Market personal pizza, salad, and an all natural soda, (sorry no high fructose corn syrup sodas here.)
A few moments later I was enjoying the Fusion Salad with Arugula, romaine, cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, basil, shaved carrots, and crostini, all topped in balsamic vinaigrette. After I had devoured the fresh salad and taken a few swigs of my all natural cane cola, my pizza arrived. The Farmer's Market personal pizza looked more like dinner for 2. The thin multi grain crust was topped generously with zucchini, onions, artichoke, portabella mushrooms, provolone, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheeses. It's a mouthful to say and a mouthful to eat. The tangy organic tomato sauce managed to compliment the piles of melted cheese nicely. And while I thought the ingredients would surely slip off the crust and onto the plate, I was wrong. Everything held together, and played together nicely. The thin cripy crust gave the soft farm fresh ingredients another layer of texture. The tanginess of the artichokes and the earthiness of the mushrooms made every bite an adventure. Two slices in to my personal pizza, I threw in the towel. The check arrived while I boxed up my dinner for that night. I had indulged so much that I forgot how cheap the price was. For a grand total of $9.64, I had just paid for lunch and dinner.
