In fact, it’s the best vegan pizza we’ve ever had in Las Vegas … or the world. (And we make it a mission to scout out vegan pizza around the world).
Owner Robby Cunningham’s new venture inside Hard Hat Lounge has already garnered acclaim for its ‘zas and it’s only going to get hotter.
Cunningham’s been quietly on the pizza scene for a little bit now. He started making pies at home and giving them out to anyone who asked, and bringing them in to his old work so people could try.
When the kitchen opened up at Hard Hat, it was time to take the free pizza concept and the Detroit pizzas he’d been tinkering with and bring them to life.
Las Vegas Vegan Pizza: Guerrilla Pizza
Vegan Pizza at Guerrilla Pizza
As Cunningham says, “Each pizza is a Picasso.” Straying slightly from what most consider Detroit Pizza, Cunningham doesn’t bake the cheese on the dough before adding everything else. Instead, he builds it layer-by-layer before popping it in the oven.
Guerrilla’s Detroit pies start with a slightly sweet dough that is topped with Follow Your Heart’s Pizzeria Blend, then he adds thick lines of sauce on the pie. Next, he tops the pizza with whatever your little vegan heart desires.
We’re partial to the baked Beyond Sausage he’s got, which is infused with Cunningham’s grandma’s secret Hungarian spice blend.
Then, add on ‘shrooms, green peppers, red onions, banana peppers and jalapeños (in case you like it hot).
Crispy-on-the-outside-soft-on-the-inside crust with the tiniest hint of sweet and bites of tangy pizza sauce and veggies.
You can dress up your vegan pizza however you’d like, and rest assured it’s not cross-contaminated. Cunningham goes out of the way to label and keep ingredients separate.
Pies are four slices each, so there’s no middle piece that’s missing the extra crust.
Other vegan options at Guerrilla Pizza in Las Vegas
So, you’ve got to order a pizza. But, there’s other eats on Guerrilla’s menu worth trying, too.

First, there’s the vegan sausage roll. This mighty roll is filled with onion, banana peppers, sauce and cheese, along with the Beyond sausage. Eat it like a burrito, or cut it in half for extra sauce dipping.
Then, there are the vegan poutine tots. These come topped with vegan gravy, shredded cheese and green onions.
Cunningham also has a secret vegan option — Wild Bread. Think breadsticks covered in a garlic butter, topped with a sprinkle of cheese and served with marinara. Just ask nicely and it’s yours.
You won’t find much out about this spot online — Cunningham is sticking to word-of-mouth and keeping a neighborhood feeling. In fact, the pizza is only available for dine-in (there’s a patio if you want to sit outside) or take-out. Pies take about 15 minutes to make.
Keeping it super old school, you’ve got to order in person for the time being. Stay updated on the pizzas (they’ve been selling out of vegan ones because you beautiful lot), by checking out their IG Stories.
What are you waiting for? Head over to Guerrilla Pizza and grab the best pizza you’ve ever had.
