Vegan Pizza Options in the Twin Cities

*Find updates to this post at

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. Most places offer Daiya cheese, but a couple have house-made cheeses or mozzarella from The Herbivorous Butcher. Enjoy!

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. Most recently, I had the Second Harvest Heartland with 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.

You’ll find Pizza Nea in NE Minneapolis, and they offer a wide selection of ingredients on their Neapolitan pizzas. You can veganize any pizza by adding three different meat options and mozzarella from The Herbivorous Butcher (there’s an up charge but it’s well worth it).

Curry Cauliflower seasonal 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 such a nice kick to it! I also like the texture. And the flavor of Lucé’s crust. And the peanut butter bars. 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.

Vegan pizza by the slice at Geek Love Cafe

Moon Palace Books is a favorite of mine, and now you can cop a squat at Geek Love Cafe, located toward the back of the store. They have coffee, beer, wine, and other beverages, and their menu includes some vegan options, including pizza! They use Daiya cheese, and the option at the time I was there had olives, banana peppers, onions, and greens. My friend Jen was there previous to my visit, and hers had green peppers, mushrooms, and vegan sausage.

Big River Pizza: The Al Franken with vegan cheese

Big River Pizza: The Al Franken with vegan cheese

Big River Pizza offers mobile wood-fire catering but they also have a storefront in St Paul near the farmer’s market and CHS Field. They make their own almond-based cheese and it’s $3 extra but worth it. The downside is that it’s not always available. (Update 2018: I went in a couple times in the past few months and they were only offering Daiya.) You can build-your-own or order off the menu. They even offer breakfast pizza!

Pieology: Rustic Veggie Pizza

Pieology: Rustic Veggie Pizza

What I especially love about Pieology is that they put olive oil around the edge of the crust, so it crisps up really nicely while it bakes. I really like the Rustic Veggie, and the two local locations offer Daiya cheese. Pieology isn’t too different than Blaze Pizza aside from the olive oil. They also have salads with a couple vegan dressing options.

    Pizza Nea is on top of my list for a visit. And I also now want pizza. Even though I had some yesterday. Is there ever a time that’s NOT a good time for pizza? No. No there is not.

      Well yeah, I mean. They don’t make breakfast pizza for nothing, amiright? Get your butt to Pizza Nea already! Hm, maybe I’ll have pizza for dinner…
