Sun May 31 7:00 pm
We’ll be serving slices of fresh mozzarella and garlic pizza, topped with a garden salad made from a selection of Tomten Farms greens and produce.

All proceeds will benefit Tricycle Gardens. We’ll be serving beer as well and a rose and chenin blanc.

Unlike other Pizza 2000 events in the past, THERE WILL NOT BE ANY PIZZA AVAILABLE TO TAKE AWAY. All pizza will be passed around the bakery and offered in an “all-you-can-eat” and fist-come-first-served style. We’re suggesting a $10 donation, but each person is welcome to donate as s/he sees fit. Beer and wine sales will be separate.
