Respond to Review of CLOSED: Bite Me Organic Pizza
Review: There aren't many pizza places in Burlington, let alone any that regularly offer vegan pizza on their menu (at least to my knowledge), except this one. We ordered their vegan pizza, which consists of a wheat crust, tomato sauce, lots of great veggies and small pieces of crumbled, very lightly marinated tofu (so lightly marinated that you really can't tell that it was marinated in anything). Everything is obviously organic. You can also order custom pizzas with whatever toppings you want, but they do not have any meat analogs, such as veggie pepperoni or mock sausage. Surprisingly, they also do not offer any vegan cheeses, such as soy, almond or rice-based cheese, or nutritional yeast cheese, whether vegan or with casein (protein extracted from cow's milk that allows non-vegan soy cheeses to melt). They deliver, and they really don't have any on-premise seating to speak of, so going the delivery or take-out route is probably best. The fairly young clientele seems to include a lot of college students and hippie types (no offense meant, of course), and the service and delivery are slow, but if you're craving a vegan pizza, or just an organic vegetarian pizza, it's worth the wait. We can't comment on the vegetarian pizzas with cheese, but they seem great. My hope is that they will eventually include some more creative, tasty toppings, but as it stands, it's pretty good.
