Velvet Elvis Pizza

If you find yourself complaining that nothing healthy ever tastes good, you haven’t been to Velvet Elvis Pizza. Owner and executive chef Cecilia San Miguel says her patrons enjoy her handmade pizzas, organic salads and made-to-order juices so much that they often “ignore their inherent health benefits.” All of the carefully prepared meals, which cater to everyone from vegans to meat lovers, are inspired by worldwide cuisine.

Other than its name, why is Velvet Elvis so unique?
The Velvet Elvis is a concept created not for financial benefit, but as a philosophy of life, which is expressed and experienced through culinary creativity and responsibility to those we serve.

What makes the food so tasty?
We take the time to prepare everything from scratch, whether it’s roasting red peppers by hand or preparing our own pestos and signature dressings for our salads.

Do you cater only to vegetarians and health nuts?

We serve the spectrum of clientele in Pat-agonia — population 900 — ranging from strict vegan to those who may order triple sausage. And beyond our town limits, we serve visitors from all around the world.

What would Elvis Presley treasure most about Velvet Elvis?
It’s the experience of home away from home — the way grandma cooked.— Kayla Frost

Velvet Elvis Pizza is located at 292 Naugle Avenue in Patagonia. For more information, call 520-394-2102 or visit www.velvetelvispizza.com.
