Though making pizza is its No. 1 priority, Pizza Fusion manages to pull double duty as an environmental steward and live out its motto, ”Saving The Earth One Pizza At A Time.” Each of its delivery vehicles is a company-owned hybrid, all of its locations are built according to LEED certification standards, and several stores are illuminated with efficient LED lighting. Keeping with the theme, the company strives to limit its kitchens’ ecological footprint by preparing pizzas with local ingredients, including free-range chicken, organic pepperoni, and a signature pizza sauce made from organic ingredients all the way down to the salt and spices. Chefs arrange flavor combos from the Farmer’s Market pie with roasted artichoke hearts, zucchini, and portobello mushrooms to the greek pizza scattered with kalamata olives and a four-cheese blend with feta. Gluten-free and vegan diners can get their pizza fix with pies made with soy cheese and gluten-free crust instead of just pretending to eat slices and then feeding them to pets under dinner tables.:m]]
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.
