It feels a little strange eating a vegan pepperoni pizza in an old strip club.
In a place where smoke and strippers once ruled, I’m face deep in a pizza made with dairy-free macadamia nut ricotta, calabrian chili, and meat-free agave fennel sausage. The sweet and spicy pie seems like the best $20 anyone ever spent in this spot.
My pepperoni pizza comes from from Double Zero, one of two upstairs restaurants in Plant City, the first plant-based food hall in the world. It’s the brainchild of Providence plant-based investor Kim Anderson and chef Matthew Kenney, who’ve put four of the chef’s most popular restaurants in a classic old brick building near the Providence River.
