Designation Level: Silver

V3 Flatbread Pizza specializes in fresh, organic, and local ingredients with a fast casual build your own pizza concept. The downtown location of V3 has earned a Silver designation with the Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant program, demonstrating their commitment to community well-being and environmental health within the Pittsburgh region.

The V3 experience allows guests to completely customize their own pizzas. At a flat, affordable price, guests pick their type of dough (traditional, gluten free, multigrain), their sauce (traditional or spicy red, white garlic, basil pesto, BBQ, Buffalo, Buttermilk Ranch, or a combination of the options), their cheese (ranging from traditional Wisconsin mozzarella to goat cheese and gorgonzola and everything in between) their toppings (including vegetables, proteins, and seasonings), and finishes (including an olive oil drizzle, grated Himalayan salt, artisan cheeses, and more).

V3’s philosophy reflects a responsibility for both people and planet. Providing responsibly sourced ingredients sets this pizza joint apart from the rest. They take pride in their preservative-free sauce, their hand-tossed dough made from a family recipe, and their use of fresh local vegetables, cage-free eggs, and real cheese. Plus, V3 focuses on health and caters to the needs of different diets by offering more than 20 gluten-free pizzas, gluten-free and multigrain dough, and a number of organic, fresh, and local toppings—making their pizzas both good for the body and for the belly.

V3’s Sustainable Pittsburgh Restaurant designation shows their commitment to practices that support vibrant communities and a healthy environment in the Pittsburgh region. Among the highlights, they prioritize buying ingredients from local sources in the Strip District and regional sources like Consumer Fresh and Reinhart Foods. In order to control the quality of their offerings, they make doughs, some sauces and infused oils in house. All of their employees are trained on their sustainability efforts and they practice root to stem cooking to limit food waste. They also make considerable efforts to upcycle large materials and appliances and recycle their disposable packaging.
