For Sunday, National Pizza Day, Double Zero's sister restaurant in Venice, Califonia, is going full tilt into social marketing. There, pizza lovers can get half off their second pie if they participate in social sharing, liking, posting and tagging. That's fine. We'll just split the next one with our friend and not worry that we don't live in Venice.
3. Two Boots (multiple locations)
Perhaps—at least for our own Sun Sachs, vegan guru extraordinaire—the favorite vegan pie to be found in New York City is the V pizza at Two Boots
(V stands for Vegan of course) which is basically such a medley of tastes you don't even miss the cheese.
4. Cruzer's, Los Angeles
The OG when it comes to LA's vegan scene, pizza or not. Cruzer's
went fully vegan nearly a decade ago. And, believe it or not, it's the city's only 100% vegan pizza joint. It recently expanded to a much larger Hollywood location as demand for vegan pies soars. Try the Jamaican, the Phillysteak, or build your own.
5. Sizzle Pie, Portland, Oregon
Portland's vegan scene is booming. Especially when it comes to vegan pizza. Sizzle Pie isn't 100% vegan but it does meat- and dairy-free like nobody's business. Try the Spiral Tap. Buffalo 666, or the Vegan Angel of Doom.
6. Mohawk Bend, Los Angeles
Known for many things: perfect location, all those ridiculously delicious beer options, that big fireplace, the former movie theater is an east side institution. And those vegan pizzas have a lot to do with Mohawk Bend's success. Check out the pie of the month, which donates profits to rotating charities every month. Favorites include the Vegan Pepperoni and the Angry Vegan. But while you're there, be sure to order the buffalo cauliflower, a fan favorite.
7. Dimo's Pizza, Chicago
This Wicker Park and Wrigleyville favorite is so committed to fresh that it grows ingredients on its own rooftop! Certainly not something you'd expect from the Windy City, but locals can't get enough of Dimo's Pizza. Try the Papas Bravas with ranch and vegan mozz.
8. Veggie Crust, Boston
Everything is vegetarian at Veggie Crust in Somerville and Brookline. The pizza shop also serves its own ice cream, paninis, pasta, and salads. The menu is inventive with pies like the Coconut Corn, Curry Leaf Pesto Portobella, and a Falafel Pizza.
9. Pi Vegan Pizzeria, Seattle
Pi Vegan Pizzeria boasts the title of being America's oldest vegan pizza shop and we're not going to even challenge that. All we want? Another slice, of course! Get your crusts stuffed, if you want, chow down on a vegan meat lovers (Canadian bacon!), or do it the Seattle way with the Rainy Day white garlic sauce pizza. You can't go wrong.
10. Blaze Pizza (multiple locations)
If LeBron James is one of your investors, you know you're onto something big. Based in Pasadena, California, Blaze Pizza now has over 300 locations and is growing fast. The menu items are labeled vegan, and every location offers vegan cheese options and loads of veggies. Build your own and enjoy that fast fire'd flavor!
