|Written by Brianne DiSylvester|
Even if you flunked math and don’t know your calculus from your trigonometry you can still enjoy this mathematical wonder: Rev’d Up Pi adds locally-sourced, organic ingredients + probiotics, antioxidants, and fibers to = one healthy and yummy piece of pizza.
On New York City's 3rd Avenue (at 31st Street), Rev’d Up Pi serves breakfast pies like the Turkey Bacon Egg Swirl and Smoked Wild Salmon, as well as gourmet pizzas like the Lean and Green, Mac and Cheese, Mighty Mushroom, and more. In addition to pizza, they also have salads, pastas, soups and breads which are equally as delicious and healthy.
Here are some of the eco-friendly benefits that sum up this pizza joint:
Antioxidant Boosters – Order up a “Revvers” with your slice. They have Slenderize, Energize, and Vitalize which come in little packets you can sprinkle on your pizza.
Fewer Calories – The dough and sauce are infused with fiber which increases absorption, improves digestion, and make you feel fuller (that means you eat less). Plus, they’ve omitted the sugar. Their Margarita only has 170 calories.
Less Salt – Everything has salt in it. At Pi, it has less. They use low sodium sea salt and fresh ingredients to go easy on those savory crystals.
Lower Fat – The cheese is made in-house with reduced fat milk.
Extra Probiotics – These are the good bacteria that live in our GI tract and boost immunity and metabolism. They add a 9-strain heat-resistant probiotic booster you can add to your pizza.
No Bad Stuff – All of Pi’s pies are sans preservatives, chemicals, hydrogenated fats and artificial sugar.
Revd Up Water – Pi goes an extra step by filtering all of its water with a 10-step system. You can even get it enriched with minerals and calcium.
Organic, Locally Sourced Ingredients – They use as many organic items as possible and all their meat is USDA Certified Organic, the chicken, turkey and eggs are free range, and the fish and seafood are sustainable. Plus, 95% of their ingredients are locally sourced.
Heirloom Grains – Pi uses ancestral grains and seeds (which are richer in nutrients and less allergenic) in the 16-grain crust like amaranth, millet, quinoa, sorghum, teff, rye, oats and barley.
Gluten-Free Options – Using rice and potatoes, Pi concocted a crispy crust that tastes like the real thing.
