There’s a handful of things that make us stick out at as a city and salad pizza is definitely one of them.
We get it: New year, new you! But does it count as breaking your diet if your pizza is topped with salad?
Abbot Pizza Company is admired by locals, but for the rest of us, this neighborhood joint is pretty unheard of. With fan favorites like the Five Onion made with five different onions, three cheeses, and olive pestos sauce to Popeye’s Chicken made with tequila lime marinated chicken, cheese, veggies and garlic pesto – sticking to your New Year’s diet can be tricky.
(Did we mention that Abbot’s crusts come in bagel-like varieties? Choose between onion, poppy, garlic, hot pepper, sesame, and everything!)
But what if we told you that you could order a pizza made with salad?
Though it may sound like the two don’t go together, let’s just remember that people eat pizza with pineapple on it…
Owner Richard Schiffer thought of the idea when he was a kid growing up in New York. It took Schiffer a couple of years to bring his childhood dream to life, but it was well worth the wait considering people from all over town to get a bite. The crust is coated in everything bagel seasoning before being popped in the oven with red onions and mozzarella toppings. After being coated with a bit of sour cream, a thick layer of lemon-olive oiled salad is thrown on the bad boy and then smothered with avocado.
Abbot’s Pizza Co definitely raises the question: is it worth breaking your resolution?
And if we’re being honest here… Yes, yes it is.
