LA Gets Vegan Pizzeria

Cruzer Pizza and Pasta revamps its Los Feliz location, becoming a plant-based pizzeria.

Last week, Los Angeles pizza chain Cruzer Pizza and Pasta held a soft opening at its Los Feliz location to celebrate its transition from omnivorous pizzeria to all-vegan pie house. Along with revamping its already existing menu, Cruzer will add new animal-free options and is currently experimenting with recipes. Tantalizing menu items that can be delivered to your door include pizza topped with Daiya cheese and faux-meats from Gardein and Yves. The soft opening marks LA's first 100-percent vegan pizzeria, a trend that is catching on across the country. In October residents of Boston delighted in the opening of Peace O'Pie, the first vegan pizzeria in New England.
