DianeR wrote:One chain we've discovered that works (at least the place we went to) is California Pizza Kitchen. We ordered the vegetarian pizza, but went cheeseless and subbed carrots, bean sprouts, and regular tomatoes for the oily eggplant, corn, and sun-dried tomatoes. I shudder to think all those times we ordered the regular veggie pizza, and figured that going cheeseless was good enough. We didn't know about the oil on the different veggies, but didn't care enough to ask either. (We found out what was possible by talking to the manager first.)
A final question -- the hummus and veggie sandwich at Cosi is 7 grams of fat, 59 calories of fat out of 397 (with 532 mg of sodium). Is this acceptable, a treat to be consumed rarely, or actually pretty good? Cosi's are all over, so it would give us a nice option.

I mean, this woman actually went back and talked to the chef before telling us what she told us. Maybe the person in charge of putting things on top of the pizzas is different from the one making the crust??? Oh well.
