Vegan pizza comes to Catonsville
Scittino's, a Catonsville pizzeria and Italian market, has started offering vegan cheese on its pizzas.
I'd like to think this is further proof that the area dining scene is getting more sophisticated, except that I'm not sure vegan cheese is all that tasty.
Even Josie Schroeter, one of the Scittino's owners proudly serving the vegan cheese pies, still prefers the real milk mozzarella, which remains on the menu.
"To me, personal taste, it's not the same," she said of the vegan stuff.
But Schroeter said her vegan customers have been more than happy with the Daiya non-dairy cheese option, which the pizzeria rolled out two or three weeks ago.
"It's going over very well," she said. "We're getting calls for it every week."
