Pizza is amazing. It really is versatile. Not only are there many types of pizza, but it’s great whenever. It’s delicious as a cold leftover for breakfast, and is now totally acceptable to eat while attending the Oscars! But if your resolution for 2015 is to eat healthier, I would recommend dining at the Flying Saucer Pizza Company in Salem, Massachusetts. Their mission is to ‘abduct traditional pizza and give it a healthy gourmet spin.’ This place is not your run-of-the-mill American Italian restaurant with red-checkered table cloths; it is a sci-fi themed eatery that offers peace to all forms of life- carnivores, vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free.
Since owner Steve Feldmann and his sidekick Charlie the Space Pug landed on Earth on August 3, 2012, the Flying Saucer Pizza Company has been hypnotizing people from all over with their one of a kind pizzas. Though their pizza options are ever changing, they always use fresh and local ingredients. Their dough is made hand-stretched everyday, and they even offer beer dough, which comes from local draft selections. According to their website, the Flying Saucer Pizza Company tends to ‘utilize darker beers for a richer, more intense flavor.’
The menu is daunting, and it took my friend and I forever to make a decision, but in end we ordered half Invader Zim (pesto, Saucer cheese blend, goat cheese, green pepper, broccoli, asparagus, balsamic fig glaze) and half Megatron (evoo and chopped garlic, Saucer cheese blend, ricotta, bacon, potato, cherry tomato, scallion).
Our mouths were watering so much from all the aromas surrounding us, it wasn’t until there was only two slices left that we realized we hadn't taken a picture. The potatoes were spread evenly on Invader Zim’s and the balsamic fig glaze on the Megatron gave it the rick koch.
The Flying Saucer Pizza Company isn't just a party for your mouth, but your eyes as well if you’re a fan of science fiction!
