$10 for $20 Worth of Organic Pizza
Pizza Fusion’s menu features organic ingredients on pizzas such as the barbecue chicken ($10–$26), the Big Kahuna topped with pineapple and bacon ($9–$26), and the classic pepperoni covered with a three-cheese blend ($7–$21). Pizza Fusion is also donating a portion of sales of this Groupon to the Share Our Strength, No Kid Hungry movement, to help prevent childhood hunger.
Michael Gordon and Vaughan Lazar wanted to make an impression without leaving behind an imprint. Noticing an apparent lack of casual organically inclined restaurants, the duo decided to create an eco-friendly eatery that featured familiar pizzeria staples with a socially responsible twist. Each pizza begins as a disc of freshly kneaded dough made with organic grains and flour and a layer of zesty sauce that contains an also-organic blend of vine-ripened tomatoes, herbs, and spices. The chefs also source ingredients from local producers to populate a menu of two dozen topping options, including free-range chicken, portobello mushrooms, and soy mozzarella. Along with these pizzas, they create sandwiches and salads that appeal to vegan and gluten-free diets.
In addition to working almost exclusively with suppliers and producers that value environmental sustainability, Pizza Fusion adheres to eco-conscious practices at each of its locations. The staff recycles every pizza box it can and serves food in cornstarch-based containers that biodegrade in as little as 50 days. Even the buildings minimize their environmental impact by recycling heat from the ovens and using it to warm the restaurants and prevent snowman infestations.
