Veggie Planet [in Club Passim]??

Howdy from a chiming-in Harvard freshman!
I was wondering, has anybody been to the pretty-new Veggie Planet, the cafe/restaurant in Club Passim where, they claim, "pizza is art"? I swung by yesterday and took the take-out menu, and it looks darn intriguing - lots of very unorthodox pizzas, all of which are either vegetarian or vegan (i.e. have "ricotta" in quotations), all made with happy organic/local ingredients. Sounds kind of indy-chic, which might be a good thing...anyways, yeah, any comments? Thanks!

    I would hesistate to call it "pizza." To me it's simply a fantastic crisp/chewy flatbread that has some delicious toppings on it. I'd keep the toppings simple, though, because the center of the pizza crust can get soggy if the toppings are too wet and heavy.

    They have great homemade lemonade too. And the cooks are so friendly and accommodating.

      Hey,
      Veggie Planet is really good. I've eaten there twice and had two really tasty pizzas. one had butternut squash, sage, caramelized onions, and goat cheese. Lunch is a good deal. I think it's like $5.50 for a pizza.
      take care,
