They say there’s no such thing as bad pizza. That’s being very generous to some of the less-than-satisfying vegan pizzas we’ve tried before the dairy-free cheese revolution. Vegan pizza has significantly improved throughout the years, and it’s also becoming far more common. It’s not quite 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 now, you certainly will by the end of this article. Here’s where to find the best vegan pizza for delivery.

Best vegan cheese for pizza 

The right vegan cheese can convince us to take a second slice. But the truth is, not all of the 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 crust with a puffy base topped with tomato sauce, extra virgin olive oil, oregano, and garlic.

Three varieties work well on pizza: vegan parmesan, 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 tacky, bland, and oily. Miyoko’s Creamery and NUMU both make reliable vegan mozzarellas that stand up to the heat. Specifically, Miyoko’s new pourable mozzarella works wonders for homemade pies whereas NUMU can be found in a variety of pizzerias in the greater New York region as well as at Whole Foods pizza stations nationwide. Many restaurants also carry either Daiya, Parmela Creamery, or Follow Your Heart cheese to obtain that stretchy element. 

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

Don’t forget the parm. Whether store-bought or homemade, a finishing of vegan parmesan adds an umami flavor to pull everything together. Make it in less than five minutes by blitzing cashews, nutritional yeast, and a pinch each of salt, black pepper, and garlic powder until you achieve a sand-like texture. Sometimes, all you need is a sprinkle of this cheesy pixie dust and you’re set—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’s available in regional chain restaurants, independent eateries, grocery store hot bars, and the freezer aisle. Even when a restaurant does not explicitly offer a plant-based pie on the menu, you can usually order one by holding the meat and cheese and amping up the vegetables. Most pizza dough is naturally vegan (with the exception of most doughs at Papa John’s, which for some reason contain milk), making it easy to build your own when dining out. Here are some of our favorite delivery options:

VegNews.VeganPizzaDelivery.PieologyPieology

7 Pieology

The only vegan crust option at Pieology is the thin and crispy gluten-free crust. But, what the chain lacks in bread is made up by the fact that it has dairy-free Daiya mozzarella cheese, plus plant-based meatballs and Italian sausage. All of the vegetables are vegan and for sauces, you have the choice of red, barbecue, or Buffalo. Top your pie with crushed red pepper and oregano in true New York pizzeria fashion.

9 Papa John’s

It’s a sign of the times that a big chain like Papa John’s has a page on its website dedicated to showing you how to order a vegan pie. The original hand-tossed dough is plant-based (unlike the chain’s other doughts, which contain milk and egg products) and for sauce, you have the choice between the original tomato sauce or barbecue—which would be lovely with pineapple and mushrooms. All of the vegetables are vegan. Unlike in the UK, there are no plant-based cheese or meat toppings.
