I’m not much for chain restaurants, but I recently found myself in MOD Pizza. I was pleased by the scrumptious salad I concocted from the extensive number of interesting ingredients, including roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, anchovies, pineapple, rosemary and roasted corn.
My dining partner created an appealing gluten-free pizza from the same array of ingredients and finished it off with a little container of balsamic fig glaze. It was too sweet for me, but other sauces looked appealing: pesto drizzle, sri-rancha sauce and Mike’s Hot Honey; modpizza.com. — Jennifer Mulson
