Vegan Pizza Near Me: 14 Chains That Deliver

They say there is no such thing as bad pizza. That’s being very generous with some of the less-than-satisfying vegan pizzas we tried before the dairy-free cheese revolution. Vegan pizza has improved significantly over the years and is also becoming much more common. It’s not exactly at the tipping point of vegan burgers (national chains are slow to adopt vegan cheese), but many regional and independent pizzerias have permanently added vegan cheese and plant-based meats to their menus. If you’re not craving plant-based pizza right now, you probably will by the end of this article. This is where to find the best vegan pizza delivery.

The best vegan cheese for pizza

The right vegan cheese can convince us to take a second slice. But the truth is, not all delivery options offer vegan cheese. So sometimes you still need to add your own, unless of course you want to enjoy pizza alla marinara, the Neapolitan pie that consists of a thin dough with a puffy base covered with tomato sauce, extra virgin olive oil , oregano and garlic.

Three varieties work well on pizza: vegan Parmesan cheese, creamy nut-based cheese, and truly melty (not rubbery) cheese. The latter is the most difficult to master. There’s a fine line between gooey, melty goodness and gooey, smooth, oily goodness. Miyoko’s Creamery and NUMU make reliable vegan mozzarellas that hold up to the heat. Specifically, Miyoko’s new pourable mozzarella works wonders for homemade pies, while NUMU can be found in a variety of pizzerias in the New York metro region, as well as Whole Foods pizzerias across the country. Many restaurants also have Daiya Cheese, Parmela Creamery, or Follow Your Heart for that springy element.

Creamy, spreadable cheeses like nut-based mozzarella and ricotta also make great vegan pizza toppings. With just a handful of ingredients and a high-speed blender, you can easily make these nutty cheeses at home. We also love it when a restaurant makes its own vegan cheese. It’s typically a rich, indulgent, nutty-based variety generously spread over an artisanal crust.

Don’t forget the Parmesan. Whether store-bought or homemade, a vegan Parmesan cheese finish adds an umami flavor to tie everything together. Make it in less than five minutes by blending cashews, nutritional yeast, and a pinch of salt, black pepper, and garlic powder until you achieve a sand-like texture. Sometimes all you need is a sprinkle of this cheesy fairy dust and voila, no other cheese required.

Where to find vegan pizza delivery

These days, you can find vegan pizza just about anywhere you can find non-vegan pizza. It is available at regional chain restaurants, independent restaurants, supermarket hot bars, and the freezer aisle. Even when a restaurant doesn’t explicitly offer a plant-based pie on the menu, you can usually order one by keeping the meat and cheese and increasing the vegetables. Most pizza crusts are naturally vegan (with the exception of Papa John’s, which contains milk for some reason), which makes it easy to whip up your own when you’re out for dinner. Here are some of our favorite delivery options:
