Vegan & Gluten-free at Disney World’s Rose & Crown

So when a friend recommended Portland Pie Co. in Nashua, NH for dinner, I jumped on it! I ordered the gluten-free calzone, without ricotta, and subbed in vegan cheese. I then added pineapple and broccoli. This thing was huge! I could only eat half of the calzone in one sitting, and even then I was stuffed! As I am currently writing about…
