local pizza

16th Aug 08 (Sat) 10 comments

Eugene has some great local pizza places… Mezza Luna, Cozmic, Pegasus, La Perla (presumably, I haven’t had it yet*), etc. One of our favorites is the Pizza Research Institute (aka PRI). It’s wild and crazy, they put crazy toppings on it (potatoes, corn, pears, cinnamon, eggplant, and much more (they have a periodic table of toppings on their menu). They don’t use meat in anything… not that you’d miss it. They always have several chef’s specials every day (one veg, one vegan)…

this picture from their webpage doesn’t do it justice

Well, PETA recent ranked their Top 10 Vegan-friendly Pizzerias in the US, and PRI is #5… woot.

5.The Pizza Research Institute: Eugene, Oregon
Don’t be fooled by the name! This restaurant is much hipper than the words “research institute” imply. However, with all the one-of-a-kind pizzas on the menu, you would think that there really was a staff of food scientists in the kitchen. One standout is the 3P—pears, potato, and pineapple.

Oddly enough a Cincinnati place got on the list, too… however, I’ve never heard of it – – Mac’s Pizza Pub (we spent too much time at Dewey’s).

My review of last night’s Nellie McKay at Portland’s Doug Fir Lounge show to be posted later today or maybe tomorrow…
