Toppings (ingredients): feta cheese, mozzarella cheese, broccoli, red peppers, black olives, zucchini, onions, tomato sauce.
Description: A slice of the Mediterranean? I’d say so. Although black olives are a traditional pizza topping, the feta cheese and zucchini is uncharted territory for my pizza palette. The feta clusters works well with the mozzarella and gives a strong, sharp taste with every bite. The broccoli and zucchini surprisingly adds huge crunch and holds its own with the crust. However, while some people throw away the crust, I eat mine, so I’m bummed by this slice’s skinny crust.
There were a lot of olives on my slice and I don’t like them at all — let alone black ones — but I don’t mind them on this type of pizza as they give it a strong, tart flavour.
This pizza is vegetarian-friendly and will be served at Pitman Hall on its Week One menu and at the International Living Learning Centre on its Week Two menu.
Price: A slice costs $3.75, which is fair for its large size. It’s more than enough for a lunch or dinner serving. You could cut it in two and save some for later, depending on your appetite.
