WWE Champion CM Punk is Pizzalicious!!

If you're in the Chicago area this weekend, be sure to stop by Dino's Pizza (formerly Ian's) to try a slice of the "Anaconda Vice," a vegan pizza made in honor of local hero and current WWE champion, CM Punk.

Named after the submission move, the inspiration for the pie actually came from the Brazilian dish, feijoada. Toppings include black beans, chorizo seitan, vegan bacon bits, dairy-free cheese, chopped tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, and parsley.

Kick Start Pizza Tonight!

Some pizzalicious friends of mine, the folks at Pizza Tonight need a kickstart! Check it out! They only have eight days left!


Their prizes and freebees for donating are awesome and include things like free pizza, private pizza parties, persistent pizza purchaser punch cards, etc! Support the little guys and make a donation NOW!

Here are some of the intended uses for their Kickstarter fund:
  • Source more of their ingredients locally! They have been lucky to source so many of their ingredients locally, from Olli Salumeria to Dave and Dee's Mushrooms to Sausage Craft.  This past market season, they connected with even more local businesses and farms, working beside them week after week, and they'd like to see them represented on their menus!
  • Expand the business locally and regionally. Pizza Tonight kits, dough, sauce, cheese, and meatballs have been received so well locally, they'd like to bring that to even more locations.
  • Replace and improve their equipment, including signage, tents, catering gear and oven tools. These items take a beating and wear out fast.
