Vegan Pizza in the Twin Cities

Vegavore at Parkway Pizza

The Twin Cities offers a wide variety of vegan pizza options. This is a list of where I’ve been and what I’ve had. The restaurants range from sit-down table service to quick-serve casual. The brand of vegan cheese varies among the restaurants.

All 3 Parkway Pizza locations offer a separate vegan menu which features meats from The Herbivorous Butcher and Follow Your Heart cheese. My favorite is the Vegavore. In addition to pizza options, they have appetizers, hoagies, and pasta.

Brooklyn Bee at Galactic Pizza

Galactic Pizza is a favorite because they have so many options: vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free. Vegan meats include Pepperoni from The Herbivorous Butcher, Vegan Sausage, Vegan Chicken, Fakin’ Bacon and Mock Duck, and they have Daiya. The Second Harvest Heartland has red sauce, vegan cheese, tomatoes, garlic and basil. What I love about this pizza is Galactic will donate $1 from each SHH pizza ordered to the hunger relief organization. They also have a Harmony Valley CSA pizza so when it’s in-season, you’ll get whatever they got in their box that week. And they carry Muddy Paws Cheesecake vegan cheesecake for dessert. Total bonus. And their delivery drivers wear superhero costumes, so there’s that.

Butternut Squash Pizza, fall special at Pizza Luce

Pizza Lucé has long been a staple in the Twin Cities thanks to several locations and accommodating a range of dietary needs. Let’s face it, their housemade rinotta (nut-based) cheese is a huge incentive to go (it has a kick!) and they also use Violife mozzarella. They offer seasonal specials which always have at least a couple vegan or vegan-upon-request options. My go-tos are the Fire Breathing Dragon or a simple veggie pizza (if you haven’t had asparagus on pizza before, this is the perfect place to give it a whirl), along with Garlic Cheese Bread.

Geek Love Cafe’s The Savage Detective

Geek Love Cafe can be found inside Moon Palace Books, and they have a delicious house made cashew cheese. On Mondays from 5-8pm they sell vegan pizza by the slice. You can order a whole vegan pizza any other time you go, and I love their wildly creative options that have fun names like The Dispossessed and Almanac of the Dead.

Can Can Wonderland’s Vegan-za

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the vegan pizza at Can Can Wonderland. It’s topped with spinach pistou (similar to pesto but not the same), olives, roasted onion, smoked almonds, and Daiya cheese. This pizza has a really nice heat which I didn’t expect. Even the Daiya was good, so I’m not sure what kind of magic they’re working at Can Can, but I’m all for it.

    Pizza Luce’s quality is wildly inconsistent, especially for delivery. There is nothing more frustrating than paying premium price for a pie that is dry or skimps on the toppings, which probably happens at least half of the time that we order delivery (St. Paul location; hopefully others are better.) Our pizza tonight was sadly an example of this poor quality. Which is even more disappointing because when it’s prepared right, it’s really good.

      That’s sad to hear! 🙁 I live a few blocks outside of the St Paul and Roseville delivery zones, so I haven’t had delivery for a long time. I go to the St Paul location, but more often that not I go to Seward since it’s never as busy as the other locations, and I almost always have great service and quality.
