Portland August Feature
Peaches + Mole Verde Pizza
Nothing says summer like fresh peaches – and if you haven’t tried them on a pizza, now is your chance! This August, our ‘Peaches + Mole Verde’ pizza features local Maryhill peaches plus a local Sunflower-Oat ‘Cotija’ from our friends at Cheesa Flyy. Combined with a garlic oil base, red onion, pancetta, and mole verde, it’s sweet, savory, and refreshing all at the same time.
We hear it pairs well with our Peach Sangria… visit us in South East Portland and find out for yourself!
About Cheesa Flyy:
“A cheese addict in a previous life, I found myself dissatisfied with the market choice alternatives for dairy, after committing to a plant-based lifestyle. This is when I began researching traditional methods of cheesemaking–and comparing them to their non-dairy counterparts.
After dabbling with fermentation of vegetables, I learned that nuts and seeds can be cultured similarly to dairy, so I started making real cheese from plants. I hope to convince folks that they are not missing out on any culinary experience, by omitting animal products.
Striving for sustainability, my focus is on utilizing alternatives to cashews whenever possible. Oats, sunflower seeds, and even beans– all are excellent bases for cultured cheese.” – Lisa Fliege, Owner

Virtuous Pie is an elevated fast-casual restaurant, focused on handcrafted pizza and ice-cream, made 100% from plants.
At Virtuous Pie we offer something unique. Something that’s created for foodies of all types demanding great taste, innovation, and surprise. It is these values that guide us across all that we do, from our design centric approach to our space, our environmentally sustainable packaging, and most importantly, our menu.
