Our New Favorite Vegan Pizza Place

My husband Christopher loves pizza!! But he’s usually pretty down on vegan cheese pizza…just not a fan. So on a recent Saturday date night, watching the UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship, we ordered a pizza from Cruzer, a 100% vegan pizza place in Silver Lake, CA.

I just love that and turns out Christopher loved the pizza, so I’m thrilled!!

Cruzer's Vegan Pizza

Yay Cruzer!! Yay vegan pizza joint!!

If you’re looking for a great option, try the red onion, mushroom, sausage and bell pepper combo…that was Christopher’s order and it was perfect!

Do you have a favorite local vegan pizza place?

    I live in Upton, MA, and the local pizza place down the street from my house will put vegan cheese on pizza if you bring it in and give it to them. I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m super excited to!

      Anyone know of vegan pizza places in Chicago?

  • Jean-Michel Bergeron

    Personally I’m just curious, who had the idea of watching the UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship? Personally I’m not against a boxing match here and there, I ordered a 2-dvd documentary about serial killers, and it made me so depressed I couldn’t watch more than 1 of the 8 45-minutes episodes… Regarding pizza I’m a huge fan, there’s not much vegan choice here in Quebec City… I made myself a pizza using things from the supermarket a years ago including Daiya cheese and I ate it, but I usually don’t really like vegan cheese….

    We don’t have those kind of options here, so I just get the veggie lovers, add extra veggies and no cheese. It’s actually pretty great and delivered to my door!

    Cruzer is my all time favorite pizza place! Their pizza is amazing, and they have a full menu of delicious vegan items. It’s a must visit spot when I’m in LA!

    Portland’s got a great pizza place called Sizzle Pie. They’re not a 100% vegan pizza place since they do have dairy cheese and meat, but they offer some pretty fantastic vegan pizzas. Some are cheeseless but with delicious sauces, and some use Daiya. They also offer alternative proteins like tofu, tempeh, and veggie sausage and pepperoni. Next time you’re in Portland I highly recommend it. Not macro, but if you’re feeling naughty and need a pizza their great!

    Cruzer’s is amazing!! We order it all the time. I used to volunteer with Farm Sanctuary and I remember when Cruzer’s used to have veal on the menu. Farm Sanctuary helped the owner transition to a full vegan menu :) I love that place!

    LOVE Cruzer… :)


    My friend Bill runs Fiore Market Cafe in South Pasadena. His food is delicious and he makes everything from scratch, even the bread. He also uses the veggies from his garden surrounding the cafe. Expect a wait any time you go there. Grab a gardening or cooking book and relax on the patio! It is not all vegan but he does have vegas stuff on the menu.
