One Speed Pizza

My husband and I had a lovely lunch last week at trendy One Speed Pizza in East Sacramento.  I ordered their outstanding Housemade Focaccia with Roasted Red Pepper Hummus to start.  If you're vegan, however, make sure to ask your server to leave the cheese off the top of the focaccia.

We ordered the Marinated Olives to share, but some of the olives are stuffed with anchovies.  Your server can try to pick out all of the olives with anchovies before bringing the olives to your table, but the olives are all mixed together, so bits of anchovy could still end up mixed in with the rest of the olives.

For my entree, I had the Dwelley Farms Green Beans & Baby Beets salad, topped with walnuts and pickled onions.  It normally comes with feta cheese, which I asked them to leave off.  I thought the salad with its tangy dressing was quite delicious and surprisingly filling.

Other vegan menu options at One Speed Pizza include the Simple Mixed Greens; the Panzanella, if ordered without the Parmesan; the Local Sweet Corn & Fregola; and the Spaghetti Pomidoro, if ordered without the anchovies and Parmesan. 

I e-mailed the restaurant to see if they offered any other vegan options, and received a response indicating that the Gnocchi can be made vegan by ordering it with tomato sauce.  Also, there is a vegan pizza, which is not on the menu, but which apparently can be made with tomato sauce and an assortment of vegetables.

For breakfast, the only vegan menu options appear to be the Breakfast Potatoes, and the Black Beans & Rice, if ordered without sour cream and cheese.
