Hey Memphis readers, this post is for you! This week, Midtown Crossing Grill is offering a special vegan pizza called The Goodman, named after one of their regular customers.
They're trying it out for the week to see how well it goes over. And if it goes over well, they'll add The Goodman to their upcoming new menu. I had the chance to try it a few weeks ago as a tester, and let me tell ya — THIS IS THE BEST VEGAN PIZZA IN MEMPHIS. Seriously.
There are currently eight — count 'em, EIGHT — places in Memphis to get a vegan cheese pizza these days. Crazy, right? In my early days as a vegan here, I'd never have imagined that could happen. All of those places have excellent pizza, and each has it's strong points. But Midtown Crossing wins for best with this one.
The Goodman is made with two kinds of vegan cheese — vegan mozzarella shreds and vegan cream cheese — and that makes for an incredibly creamy, cheesy pizza. It's also topped with tomato sauce, potatoes, spinach, and mushrooms. And all of that is layered upon some of the best pizza crust this city to offer. Somehow, it's soft, crispy, and chewy all at the same time. Perfection.
So Memphis, let's show Midtown Crossing that we want The Goodman on the regular menu! This is my neighborhood bar, and I'm so happy they've become so vegan-friendly. Besides The Goodman special, they also have a vegan Greek Flatbread with hummus and olives, amazing spring rolls, and there's a vegan banh mi named after me (the Bianca Banh Mi!).
Midtown Crossing Grill is located at 394 N. Watkins. You can call ahead at 901-443-0502. The Goodman will be available all week!
