It had been nearly a month since my parents and I saw each other. So, we were due for a Friday night dinner!

(If you’re wondering about the “X Marks the Spot” part of the title, scroll down.)

My dad had a SuburbanMomma coupon for Pizza Fusion at 33 Godwin Avenue in Ridgewood (right across the street from Whole Foods Market). So, on Friday, March 18, 2011, we gave it a try and were quite happy.

Pizza Fusion, which is a franchise, prides itself on natural, organic, and mostly gluten-free ingredients.

The top of the menu says, “You are about to eat the freshest veggies, tastiest certified organic tomato sauce, the juiciest hormone-free meats, and crispiest hand-stretched all-natural dough. Delish!”

We started off with the Fusion Salad (arugula, romaine, cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, basil, shaved carrots, and crostini – with balsamic vinaigrette).

We followed that up with the Stuffed Mushrooms (Crimini mushrooms stuffed with sausage, goat cheese & Herbs). I’m not usually a mushroom fan, but these were quite yummy.

After that, it was on to pizza!

My favorite pizza of the evening was the Sausage & Tricolor Peppers pizza (sweet Italian sausage, roasted tricolor peppers, tomato sauce, chili flakes, mozzarella, provolone, and parmesan).

We also got the Philly Steak Pizza (sautéed spinach, roasted artichoke hearts, roasted garlic, tomato sauce ,mozzarella, provolone, and parmesan). We got that one on multigrain crust.

We also had a “create your own” pizza. We got it with chicken and mushrooms.

We had fun. Nick, who runs this franchise with his brother, came over to the table and was very nice. You van visit the Ridgewood Pizza Fusion webpage HERE.

Now, on to the “X Marks the Spot” part of this blog entry.

Pizza Fusion appears to be pretty popular. So, we had to wait outside for a few minutes to get a table. No complaints. The weather was spectacular. Anyway, while we were standing outside, I noticed two intersecting contrails in the sky. I thought they looked pretty neat.
