Vegetarian and Vegan Pizza

Pizza Research Institute is a family owned vegetarian and vegan pizza restaurant where vegan doesn't just mean omitting the cheese (they make their own vegan tofu sauce). It has a fun, cozy, and often loud atmosphere. Pizza toppings are interesting with choices such as the chef choice, which is usually topped with ten to fifteen different veggies included small pieces of corn on the cob(seasonal), squash, mushrooms, peppers, sliced potatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, etc. Also delicious is the 3P which includes potatoes, pear, and pesto. In the summer try the spicy tofu, green pepper and pineapple pizza. PRI also offers fresh salads, organic beer and wine, and vegan and as well as non vegan cookies as dessert.

My family has been a long-time customer of Pizza Research Institute but no more. They are notoriously slow but sometimes good things are worth waiting for. The pizza is above average but the real draw for us was the cheeseless vegan options which don't taste like soy cheese, but quite good. However, we have a threshold for rudeness. Of course you can't lump all the staff into one basket, any business will have good and bad employees. The problem at PRI is at the root, the ownership, which we found him to be not just rude, but ruthless and mean. In my 46 years I have never seen a business treat a customer so poorly, starting with my wife and then ending with me. I will spare you the drama other than to safe at one point I didn't feel safe. As another customer wrote we drove down the street to kid-friendly Laughing Planet, and saved some money in the process. If I thought PRI was having a bad day I wouldn't be writing this, it happens, but there is a deeper problem and not something I'm willing to support anymore.

I have yet to actually get food from PRI. I have had rude enough serves on the phone to just hang up, after the person be littled me for calling with out first knowing their entire menu. Then the servers where rude enough to ask a person in my party if the would please hurry it up there were other waiting to order, we said fine you take their orders. we drove down the block and enjoyed Laughing Planet instead.
