Thai Peanut Pizza at Midtown Crossing Grill

Just a quick post tonight to announce an very exciting update to the menu at Midtown Crossing Grill! This Crosstown pizza parlor has added a new vegan Thai Peanut Pizza!

This pizza, called The Watkins (named after the street Midtown Crossing Grill is located on), is served at room temp and topped with peanut sauce, tofu, green apple slices, pickled carrots, cilantro, and sriracha. The tart green apples provide a crisp balance to the soft tofu and peanut butter. And the carrots add just the right level of tang.

We had our monthly Memphis Vegan Drinks meet-up there last week, and owner Octavia Young brought one out for us to try and provide feedback on. We all loved it! Stop by and give it a try. It's not on the actual menu yet, but if you ask for the vegan Thai peanut pizza, they'll know what you mean.

And, of course, if peanut butter isn't your thing, you can always get a vegan cheese pizza there. It's not on the menu either. But they always have vegan cheese as a substitute for dairy cheese on their pizzas. Here's one I had recently with banana peppers, mushrooms, black olives, and caramelized onions.

Additionally, Midtown Crossing has a vegan banh mi (named after me!), a hummus flatbread, and a stellar vegan Sunday brunch!

Midtown Crossing is located at 394 N. Watkins.

Oh wow, that sounds amazing. I love the idea of the apples with the tofu and peanut sauce.

Oh man do I want that pizza! I want them both actually. I am very against pineapple on pizza, so I kind of question green apple but it really does sound like a great combo!

Ooooh yum! Both pizzas look delicious and the peanut sauce sounds so good. I love seeing fun, new vegan options, especially for pizza! That crust looks good too, yum.
