If you ask most people how they feel about pizza, they would go on and on about how much they love it. Once in a while, I find myself out with friends and we just want to munch on some veggie comfort food. We eventually had a list of go-to spots. If you’re ever in need of a good veg-friendly spot for pizza, check these places out!
Have any other recommendations? Feel free to let me know! We’re always down to try some new spots.
When I lived in the Heights a few years ago, I was less than a block away from Rizzo Bakery. My family usually stopped there for bread (it’s the best), but we decided to order their Grandma pie one day and it was incredible. They offer two Grandma pies: one with cheese, one with no cheese. I’ve never had it with cheese so I can only speak for the cheeseless pie, but I can say that it’s easily the best pizza I’ve ever had. Nothing compares to it. Just try it out for yourself! They make it on Saturdays and only in full pies, so gather some friends and make it a pizza party.
Two Boots is the most convenient pizza place in Jersey City for vegan options. They have Earth Mother, V for Vegan, and several other pies that can be made vegan. V for Vegan is always available, so you can stop by and enjoy a slice!
Last year, I was out with friends at Porta and wondered what I could have that was dairy-free. Then I saw Rita & Mark on the menu! The pie has vegan mozzarella and vegan parmesan to replace standard cheese options, as well as San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, dried oregano, basil, extra virgin olive oil. Non-vegans enjoy it just as much as I do, which is always a plus! It’s a nice treat for a night out.
It wasn’t until last year when I realized I even had vegan pizza options near me. Just a block away, Romano Pizza offers quite a few vegetarian pizzas that can be made with vegan cheese – margarita, bruschetta, vegetarian, and grilled vegetable. You can also request pizza pies to be made without cheese. It’s super convenient and delicious!
I have yet to try Tony Boloney’s, but I’ve heard great things about their pizza options! They offer 3 vegan pizzas– King, Kaleiente, and Yogi. Each pie has a different mixture of options, ranging from coconut curry tikka masala to Mexican black bean hummus. I’m really looking forward to trying one of these pies soon!
