Counter service was very gracious. I won't call our evening a vegan date, but she and I enjoyed a marvelous early evening at Peace o' Pie. We felt the self-imposed rush because of the overwhelming number of would-be diners on Friday evening, so we went next door to Grasshopper for a cup of hot tea and vegan cheesecake, which made our outing more expensive.
Peace o' Pie Gourmet Vegan Pizza needs to expand and take over the space next door - or possibly the new Walgreen's down the street (don't know if they can afford it yet).
I'm going sometime in February; who wants to accompany me?
For non-vegans, the idea of snacking on Italian food sans cheese or meat can sound a lot like chewing on twigs and dirt. But the fare at Allston’s Peace o’ Pie gives regular eaters and tree-huggers a reason to rejoice. Pizzas and calzones have a crispy crust and are topped with a tomato sauce that is sweet and fresh. Grab a signature pie or build your own, with toppings ranging from sun-dried tomatoes and zucchini to smoked tempeh and apple sage “sausage.” On top of being completely animal-free, almost everything on the menu is organic (produce, sauces and dough), and gluten-free crusts are available on Thursdays. A bar made from recycled paper and 100-percent recyclable/compostable/biodegradable take-out containers and utensils set the earthy tone at this offbeat eatery.
