After our Cha Cha class last night Jess and I were just a few blocks away from a pizza place we had eaten at once before called Sizzle Pie. In keeping with a coupon theme for the evening Jess pulled up her Groupon/Thrillist/Living Social coupon on her Blackberry to reference her purchase code and we were ordering yummy pizza within short order.
Jess is learning to live with the possibly being lactose intolerant. For now she is on a dairy free diet to try to isolate which foods are creating issues for her. Of course this means MANY delicious foods most of us might take for granted…like cheese, are in literally everything and mock her. This has been difficult but Jess has been fighting the good fight and is finding alternatives to her favorite foods, like pizza. During this pursuit we did find that several places offer cheese alternatives, Sizzle Pie being one of them.
While we looked over the menu she spotted the Vegan Angel of Doom – Daiya Mozzarella “cheese,” Jalapeno, Pineapple, Shaved almonds, Cilantro. I myself zoomed in on the Karp – Kalamata Olives, Artichoke Hearts, Ricotta and house Red Sauce with dollops of Cilantro Pepita Pesto. We washed them down with a pint of Tecate for me and an Emerald Ale (I think) for her. Everything was delicious. The crust is fantastic, thin and crunchy!
If you are ever around 624 E. Burnside and are hankering for some really imaginative and tasty as hell pie – look no further than Sizzle Pie.
More to come…
