California Pizza Kitchen
Delicious hummus, and other options.  Also:  “has some great salads – Balsamic Provincial and they will add extra veggies, olives & sun-dried tomatoes, to make it extra good.” Thanks, Michelle!

Cosmic Pizza
Apache between Rural and McClintock, south side of road
Warning: Sounds great for vegetarians, but not for vegans.  I have been alerted that the soy cheese has casein (a milk protein) in it.  Also, the marinara sauce (regular pizza sauce) is made with Ricotta cheese.

Domino’s Pizza
Warning: We have been told that the new sauce contains chicken fat and is definitely not vegan.

King Solomon’s Pizza is a kosher pizzeria.  “Due to the fact that our store is kosher,  our pizzas are 100% vegetarian, no meat since Jewish dietary laws do not allow for mixing of milk and meat.  Because of this,  the cheese is 100% rennet free,  the dough is 100% vegan and vegetables are all fresh.  In addition all of the oils contain no animal fat.”

From the Little Caesar’s website:
“Little Caesars pizza crust is made with a quality, high-protein flour and contains no eggs or dairy-based conditioners. The sauce is made from crushed tomatoes and is seasoned with a special blend of natural herbs and spices – it also is made without animal broth or by-products. This means that customers who are strict vegetarians can order a Little Caesars vegetable pizza, without cheese, and still fulfill their needs.
There are other items that can be special-ordered from our menu that are acceptable for a strict vegetarian diet. For example, Crazy Bread can be ordered without Parmesan cheese along with an order of Crazy Sauce on the side.”

“Would like to share with you a relatively new restaurant by us that has vegan food.  Mellow Mushroom pizzeria on Happy Valley and I 17 carries a vegan cheese.  I have confirmed with the owner that the dough and sauce used for both the pizza and calzones are vegan.  Also they carry tempeh and tofu for toppings.  Still waiting to hear back if any of there appetizers can be made vegan.”   Thanks Jenn and Jazz!

As a result of the Charleston, SC location more and more Mellow Mushroom’s are switching from Follow Your Heart to Daiya so I’m not sure what this one offers. They also offer Tempeh and Tofu sandwiches as well as hummus and the pretzels (at least the ones in SC) were vegan if you ask for no butter.

Besides the obvious items like our salads (those without cheese) and pastas (spaghetti, linguine and penne), our marinara and pasta sauces are vegan as well.  My son who is also vegan enjoys our pizza without  cheese and topped with artichokes, onions, green peppers, mushrooms and garlic. If you do order pasta, please tell your server to avoid any cheese garnish. Hope that helps and we look forward to serving you soon.

Oregano’s Pizza Bistro

3622 N Scottsdale Rd in Scottsdale
Oregano’s pizza place has vegan pizza. The thin crust can be made without cheese, and even a deep dish (not stuffed) can be made without cheese. But for some reason, many employees there do not seem to think that Parmesan is a cheese… so usually a separate request for no Parmesan cheese as well. Some of the best pizza in town.

“For those of you who have a delectable taste for quality food (at a very fair price), allow me to introduce you to a “heavenly” dining establishment. If you like pizza, along with ONLY FRESH toppings (vegetable, fruits, herbs), with a healthy, non-greasy crust (whole wheat option available), you need to experience the newest vegan pizza palace in central Phoenix! Oh yeah, when I say vegan, this speaks very highly of the soy cheese, which is generously sandwiched between the delectable crust, delicious vegan pizza sauce and any of your favorite toppings. This is a TRUE vegan soy cheese, free of any dairy products; now we vegans can dine with comfort, knowing that the ingredients are pure:. -Thanks, Bob!

However, there is a meat-based marinara sauce as well. Verify which one is being used.  The pasta at Pizza Hut is vegan.  The Italian and French dressings are vegan.  The dessert pizza crust, cherry topping, and icing are vegan, but the crumb topping contains milk.
