minsky's pizza

★★★★(4 stars)

minsky's pizza is a local chain of pizza/bar restaurants. based upon our pie the night i took this picture, i'd probably giving this place 3 stars. but i've been there before, and i worked there for 5 years, and i know just how good they can be. in fact, many people in kansas city consider it one of their favourite pizza joints.

they are a little pricey, but i've found that most non-chain pizza places are. they have a wonderful selection for veg*ns, including artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, almonds, and the other regular veggie toppings. their famous veggie specialty pie is called a nature's choice, and it is super-delish. just be sure to get it on original crust, as it typically comes with honey wheat (non-vegan). we had the nature's choice (on original crust), half without cheese.

each location has variations in the menus. there are sandwiches, calzones, and salads that are vegetarian (and can be made vegan by omitting cheese). at the main street location (and possibly some others), they have a cheeseless grilled veggie pizza on their menu. they even have pasta with veggie-balls (although i don't know if these are vegan - be sure to ask).
