Cambridge, MA: Giant Pizza Piles, Ahoy!

I was visiting friends in the Boston area last weekend, and took care to record what we ate (for the most part - some delivery Indian food was neglected, though it was an impressive smorgasbord). Our first full day took us around the Cambridge area and the Harvard campus, and after taking in the sights, it was decided that food was necessary. Through some remarkable navigation skills by Dan, we found Veggie Planet. We were surprised to discover that it was primarily a pizza place, though not unhappily surprised, as evidenced by an order heavy on pizza.

Some local-brewed beer was chosen as part of the meal, an IPA made by Cambridge Brewing Company. It had a pleasant citrus-y character.

Here is my pizza, the most obviously vegan of the bunch. It came with a basil-tofu mash, something approximating mozzarella and pesto, Kalamata olives, and a roasted red pepper and almond sauce, the name of which now alludes me. As I have been getting more and more interested in sauces, specifically in making and jarring my own sauces, I was very much intrigued. 

Here's Sarah preparing to dig in to her own order, something in a more traditional tomato-basil-mozzarella variety. The whole-wheat crust on all of our choices (Dan got a "roasted butternut squash and goat cheese" variation that looked awesome) was also delicious.
