October is National Pizza Month, and who doesn’t love a large slice of pie dripping with melted, guilt-free, vegan cheese?! Thankfully, vegan cheese has come a *long* way since its humble beginnings of un-melting, rubbery texture and bland, icky aftertaste.
For those looking to indulge in a slice or three, we’ve rounded up some of the top 100% vegan pizzerias across America, plus we’ve included some tasty pizza recipes for those who enjoy making their meals from scratch.
1. Cruzer Pizza – Los Angeles, California
With 100% vegan goodness on the menu, Cruzer Pizza is your go-to spot if you’re ever in LA. The pizza restaurant serves up delicious appetizers like Daiya cheese stuffed breadsticks, seasoned potato wedges, potato skins, and veggie meatballs, an array of salads, pastas, and sandwiches (chicken parm, philly cheesesteak, yum!), *plus* pretty much any type of pizza you can imagine! They even have calzones!
2. The Chicago House of ‘Za Vegan Pizzeria – Chicago, Illinois
Those living in the Windy City are lucky because *this* delicious 2-inch thick, cashew cheese “Stuffed ‘Za” is on the menu at Chicago’s FIRST all-vegan pizzeria . Also on the menu? Stone baked calzones, fresh baked pull apart bread, and stuffed mushrooms. For those looking to dine out, keep in mind the House of ‘Za only offers pick up or carry out options.
3. Screamer’s Pizzeria – Brooklyn, New York
Nestled in Brooklyn, NY, Screamer’s Pizzeria serves up specialty New York-style pizzas.
