Discount Profile: Virtuous Pie
Virtuous Pie has recently added some new items to their menu, along with special deals on certain nights of the week, so we couldn’t resist going back!
My partner and I arrived on a cold winter night, so we were very happy when the garlic knots arrived super warm and soft. These were beyond any garlic knots I’ve had in the past! Not simply dusted in a garlic spread, they were so full of fresh herbs and chili flakes that they were actually colourful.
We also enjoyed the skillet mac and cheese, which once again was generously topped with extras including veggie bacon, extra parm, and parsley.
It was so difficult to decide which pizzas to order. Thank goodness there were two of us so we could pick two and share! We contemplated the Superfunghi, which comes not only with mushrooms but also a potato cream and truffle almond ricotta, and the Stranger Wings, which is topped with spicy buffalo cauliflower, scallions, crispy shallots, and more! But we ultimately settled on two different options.
The Street Corn was such a unique twist on pizza. Rather than layered with tomato sauce, it’s crust was topped with a garlic butter sauce and cilantro lime crema, and of course, there was corn. It was creamy rather than zesty. But we also wanted something a bit more traditional so we ordered the Sweet Pepper and Sausage Pizza. What really stood out about both was the authentic and crispy crust. The “cheese” on the Sweet Pepper and Sausage came in that traditional clumpy sort of style, rather than having the whole pizza doused in a stringy cheese. You could see the fresh marinara sauce through all of the toppings.
In a way, I was a bit sorry we had ordered two pizzas, because we were too full to try what sounded like my dream dessert! A skillet cookie topped with marshmallows, ice cream, and salted caramel sauce. What?! That is definitely a reason to go back and I might just order it for my appetizer.
