No, it’s not the pesto sauce. A 2-year-old pizza parlor based out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., uses only purely organic ingredients to make its pizza, purchases renewable energy credits to off-set their power consumption by 100 percent and recently purchased a fleet of hybrids for all their deliveries. Pizza Fusion has locations in three states, with restaurants opening soon in 10 additional states. The business has spread along the East Coast all the way to states like to states like California and Washington. The store was the brainchild of Michael Gordon and Vaughn Lazar, who met in college and decided to join the ranks of entrepreneurs through their own, eco-friendly method of customer service. The company’s mission:  “To uphold the highest level of integrity in all we do, from the quality and origin of our food to our care for the health of our customers and the environment.” Pizza Fusion is up for the 2008 Co-op America People's Choice Award for the green business of the year, which goes to the business that receives the most community votes.
