RR: Galactic Pizza.

After a lot of turkey, we were craving pizza.

I can't believe we got turkey-ed out so fast! After thanksgiving food and leftovers we needed to change things up. We originally planned to order from Galactic Pizza this coming week, but decided to switch things up a bit. Galactic Pizza is located a few blocks down from our apartment on Lyndale and Lake Street. We ordered  and picked it up so we could eat at home, and much to my surprise, the restaurant was dark and quaint  not at all what I was expecting. I had read a few reviews on this place, so I knew it was a must try. We ordered pizza's off of their specialty section and had plenty for leftovers. The prices are not cheap but each pizza is made with quality ingredients and genuine care for the planet.  These are a few of the values of the company: (taken from website)
-When conditions allow, our food is delivered to your door using 100% electric vehicles.-All of the power purchased to run our restaurant is renewable wind energy.-All of our mozzarella cheeses come from cows not treated with rBGH.-We have incorporated a number of organic items into the menu.-We have the Second Harvest Heartland pizza, where $1 is donated to this hunger relief organization every time the pizza is ordered.-We strive to use packaging that is either made from recycled materials, or is 100% biodegradable.-We incorporate hemp products into each menu category, and print our menu on hemp paper. Hemp is not only good for you, it is also very good for the Earth.-In season, we try to purchase all of our produce from farms here in Minnesota or in nearby Wisconsin.-We have an in depth waste reduction program utilizing composting for food waste and recycling whenever possible.-5% of our pre-tax profits are donated to charity.

I chose the Pizza Bianca- Olive oil and garlic sauce, mozzarella cheese, sundried tomatoes, garlic, artichoke hearts, and topped with organic goat cheese. It was absolutely fabulous.

Damian chose the Maui Wowie- Sundried tomato pesto, mozzarella cheese, Canadian bacon, pineapple, and jalapenos

Our favorite was the Bianca because the flavors matched so well. The pizza was really good, but not my all time favorite. Its hard to find good pizza in Minnesota! I guess my search continues...
