Craving some pizza? Forget simply holding the cheese, these are the places to get the best vegan pizza in Las Vegas. We’re talking vegan cheese-covered pies and menus with pizza staples (you know, garlic knots and zeppolis).
This spot is brand spanking new — we’re talking it grand opens on Feb. 9, 2018, in Pawn Plaza. If you hung out at the Vegans, Baby event last summer where the Numu cheese debuted, this pizza joint is the brainchild of pizza maker Vincent Rotollo, whose pies you tasted at Evel. He’s branched out on his own and has perfect the “grandma” pizza and more. He’s serving up vegan pies with a blend of Follow Your Heart and Good PLANeT cheese on Grandma and New York crusts.
Pop Up Pizza
Pop Up Pizza at The Plaza has become one of the most popular spots for obtaining the best vegan pizza in Las Vegas. The hip restaurant offers Daiya pizzas with a variety of vegetable toppings on a gorgeous bubbly crust. Want dessert? Indulge in vanilla or chocolate vegan ice cream.
As if VegeNation wouldn’t offer a vegan pizza, they also offer vegan, gluten-free pizzas. Choose from their three offerings, one of which is our personal favorite — the Picante Pineapple Pizza with charred pineapple, jalapeños and sausage crumbles. We especially love these pizzas because they use VioLife cheese. Don’t miss out on the desserts at this Downtown restaurant, either!
If you’re looking for pillowy, dreamy crust and gorgeous flavorful sauce, it’s at Evel Pie. This rock n’ roll Downtown spot themed after the legendary Evel Kneivel makes some of the absolute best pizza in town. Well, the best if you ask us. While right now they only serve up a veggie pizza with Daiya, they partnered with us in the past to throw one ahhh-mazing pizza party complete with Numu Vegan Cheese and some creative and tasty pies and meatballs. There’s more to come from Evel Pie and their vegan creations.
Slice of Vegas
While it tends to be on the (far) pricier side as far as pizza goes, Slice of Vegas has cornered the market as far as being the best vegan pizza in Las Vegas on The Strip. They’ve got four signature pizzas including a Buffalo Chicken and BBQ Chicken selections, all topped with Daiya, plus a nice vegan menu in general that includes buffalo wing appetizers, a gorgeous bruschetta and even zeppolis to end your meal.
Off-Strip – South
The Pizza Company
Even though the owner isn’t vegan, The Pizza Company caters to the vegan pizza-loving crowd. This spot makes everything in-house, including their killer vegan garlic knots. Seriously. Order these. Using Daiya, you can create your own custom pie, dip that crust into homemade ranch (yum!) and even try out some other vegan dishes, like the stromboli or brownie.
Off-Strip – Henderson, Centennial
This fast-casual pizza restaurant is of the build-your-own variety. Pick your sauce (tomato for the vegans), your cheese (Daiya) and then your veggies to toss on. The staff at Blaze offer a glove change and knife change for the vegan pizzas. It’s quick. It’s tasty. It’s cheap.
Off-Strip – Summerlin
Opened in July 2015, Summerlin’s Pizza Kitchen offers vegan and gluten-free options. It’s got a few different vegan sauces, as well as heaps of veggies to pile on, and even vegan meats. Sure, it costs a few extra dollars for the vegan options (why?), but it’s a crowd favorite.
Additional notable pizza options include Pieology and PizzaRev. Both are like Blaze Pizza and feature the build-it-yourself concept. They’re located all over town!
We are also huge fans of Naked City Pizza (which has a few locations in town), just hold the cheese for vegan options.
Other worthy, cheese-free pizza can be found at Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza — they have vegan cheese but you have to specifically request their marinara sauce on the pizza. Their pizza sauce has cheese in it.
Chain delivery pizza that can be tweaked include Domino’s and Papa John’s, as well as Pizza Hut hand-tossed and thin crust.
