Time Sensitive: Dinnertime Is the Only Good Time at Weights + Measures

Weights + Measures sports a flavor bomb of a pizza. It's an imaginative rendition that's topped with carrots, of all things. The crust is simply perfect — thin and blistered on the edges with just the right amount of char. Thin rounds of carrots lend sweetness, an oniony sauce adds intoxicating aroma, and the inspired, unlikely addition of Veldhuizen Redneck Cheddar brings a friendly richness. At $13, it's an absolute steal.

So struck were we by that carrot pizza that we asked a server about the amazing flavors when we returned for lunchtime on a subsequent day. What were the seasonings? "Egyptian spices." "What are those?" "I'm not sure."
