Hello foodies of Charlotte!
This week's restaurant is sure to satisfy your taste buds... and it's everyone's favorite food. PIZZA! Last week during my lunch break at my internship, I decided to take a stroll through Uptown and find a nice place to eat! What better way to enjoy a nice lunch than at one of the vendors in the 7th Street Market Place, which is located right in Uptown Charlotte. I was craving a pizza and discovered Pure Pizza!
They had variety of personal pizza to chose from and were all made from farm-fresh ingredients, which is part of Pure's philosophy! They want to create a healthier pizza for everyone to enjoy without feeling the guilt of heavy carbs.
Pure has a variety of crusts for everyone's liking! Whether is be a classic Neapolitan crust which is organically grown in NC, a sprouted ancient grain crust or a gluten-free sprouted grain crust, there is something for everyone to enjoy! The toppings, sauce and cheese are sourced through local, sustainable and/or organic farmers. The tomato sauce is made from 100% organically grown California tomatoes; the cheeses are the best from Wisconsin and NC! Just typing this out is making me hungry.
For my meal, I decided to go with something I had never had before on a pizza... chorizo! Chorizo is a type of sausage which is usually spicy but quite delicious. My friend whom I met at lunch ordered the special of the day which was a cheese pizza topped with arugula and a balsamic wine vinegar. Safe to say we really enjoyed our pizzas considering there was nothing left to take home with us... YUM!!
If you are craving a pizza and want to keep it healthy, go visit Pure!!
