Luigi’s Pizza [Mediterranean Pizza]
Yeah… so about that eating healthy thing. That all flew out the window starting Friday night and kind of stayed that way all the way through Monday evening. Only time will tell if this trend continues throughout the rest of the week. Today, we attended the THRIVE Lunch at Luigi’s Pizza on Edgewood Drive where Edgewood meets Ballard Road. It’s tucked in there along with Copper Rock North and a few other businesses. THRIVE was lucky today because Luigi’s opened special just for us.
It’s Monday and I’m all out of ideas for clever subheads. Hence, the simple and to the point “Mediterranean Pizza.” At this point, I’m kind of surprised I can even spell the word “Mediterranean” without having to look it up. Small victories. Anyway, we rolled into Luigi’s at about 11:15′ish and found the place full of THRIVE’rs who were already enjoying their tasty looking pizzas. Not wanting to feel left out, we ordered a 12-inch Mediterranean chocked full of spinach, feta cheese, black olives, artichokes, tomatoes, and in our case, red sauce. Optional sauces included garlic and mixed. The 12-inch pizza ran $14.00 and was more than enough for two since there was a slice left over to take home.
Sure, we could have went for something a little more on the healthy side, but what fun is that? Luigi’s offers a variety of salads if you are not in the pizza mood, including a large dinner salad, large antipasto salad, chicken Caesar, Sicilian tomato salad, and a rose garden salad (tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and Balsamic vinegar).
Pretty much everything about the experience today at Luigi’s was great. We had great company, good food, good service, and a reasonable price considering the pizza was suitable for two. I’m not an overly huge fan of super-thin crust pizzas, so I was happy to find that Luigi’s makes use of a hand-tossed crust that gives the pizza a good “bready” taste without going too far one way or another on the carb count.
