Great plus side of Harrow is having places like this. The pizzas are absolutely great, and supremely tasty. Even without being slaughter-free vegetarian or vegan, they are better than any other pizzas I've ever had.
Very kind and chatty owners who really believe in good and ethical food.
Pizza is now a regular fixture on our menu. I haven't tried anything else on their menu, and indeed, we always order the same pizza! (basically a vegan Hawaiian). I'd love to know how they make the pizza base so well too, it's very very good. You just can't go back to Pizza Hut after this! It feels very healthy as well.

Pros: Super tasty, Ultra-ethical, Delivery available
Cons: Small place, Bit far if not local, Cash only (cashpoint opposite)

Freshly prepared, healthy pizza..good side dishes!

5 Posted on 07 / 07 / 2012

Great pizza cafe with full vegan pizza options!

Everything is freshly prepared and cooked to order: there is no brought in 'pre-prepared' vegetables and the pizza dough is made freshly on-site. So be prepared to wait a little longer for your pizza to arrive than you would do in a fast-food pizza joint, but in the meantime, definitely try the tasty starters/side dishes. The options include dough balls, wedges,(these go well with their very tasty homemade vegan mayo), and samosas.

All good things come to those that wait...and when the freshly prepared pizza arrives, it is a visually pleasing sight and the pizza is so wonderful! Go for the crust stuffed with vegan pizza for an extra £2.50...come on, when was the last time any of us vegans had a 'stuffed crust' pizza in the UK?! Never at any UK pizza joints!

This is an 'environmentally-aware' business that is worth supporting: the staff are friendly, both over the phone and in person. Unless the reviewer below gives more details, I am slightly cynical about the experience of hisher brother. I cannot stand poor customer service, but in my personal experience, both the owner and staff were very friendly.

Bring cash, as no credit cards are accepted, and also leave some room for vegan sides/starters and/or Swedish Glace ice cream!

Support this place...it truly deserves it!

Pros: Friendly staff and owner, Good selection of freshly made pizza!, Great freshly prepared vegan mayo
Cons: No credit cards accepted...for now?

Probably the healthiest pizzas ever!!

5 Posted on 01 / 20 / 2012

I discovered this place a few months ago,and have been a regular customer with my boyfriend,who does eat meat,but not always..especially on his pizzas. As a new years resolution,I am cutting down on wheat and dairy,but at the Karma Free Pizza Company,I can still indulge,as they make wheat free/dairy free pizzas!!..Wow,never have I met owners with such passion and a strong ethos behind their food.

Really kind people,trying to educate the ignorant on the benefits of a meat free diet (after reading their menu,my boyfriend has cut down on his meat!)

The negetive review towards the owners is obviously written by someone jelous,trying to sabotage a good thing.They should have taken up their issue-if there indeed was one- with the owners,and not publically on here if they were genuine.

The food and service is amazing,and yes you may have to wait a couple of minutes longer,but you can see straight into their kitchen,knowing that your food is being prepared fresh.
Amazing food and concept!(especially with their dream of revolutionising the farming industry with slaughter free dairy produce) Highly recommend this warm and welcoming place.

Pros: organic, fresh and tasty, friendly staff
Cons: closed at lunch, disposable croquery

Vegetarian, Organic, Slaughter-Free Dairy!

4 Posted on 08 / 29 / 2011

Currently this is the only slaughter free pizzeria in the UK, using organic milk from cows who, along with their calves, will not be killed, but allowed to live out their lives.

They also have the option of vegan mozzarella cheese (Redwood's 'Cheezly', when we were there), they use mainly organic ingredients, and can make a gluten free pizza base (for £2 extra) if given an hours notice.

The pizza I tried was good, they've an extensive menu (inc. burgers, salad, desserts, etc.), prices are comparable, and the staff were friendly, with the co-owner's wife making vegan chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and vegan macrobiotic, gluten free, cardamom slices for our visit.

In response to the earlier review - whilst being rude clearly isn't good customer service, anyone can have an off day, and the customer isn't always right!

Primarily a takeaway, they also have seating for 16 guests (They opened up early for my group of 30+ Volentia and Meetup members!).

All-in-all, worthy of a visit, whether you're a vegetarian, vegan or, for that matter, a meater ;-)

Pros: organic and Slaughter-free, vegan and gluten-free options, friendly staff
Cons: limited seating

    Oops, that should have been ex-wife! Note the possible use of the 1470 prefix to unblock Caller ID when 'phoning.

Delicious pizzas; terrible customer service

2 Posted on 08 / 27 / 2011

Been here twice now, first time we were welcomed with a smile and food was nice. Wide range and fair prices, although bit too oily. Good message they are putting out with slaughter free cheese, but that does not in anyway allow them some sort of freedom to have terrible customer service. They were incredibly rude to my brother; need to learn 'the customer is always right', and stick to it. Grow up!

Pros: Tasty Pizzas, Wide Range
Cons: Terribly rude owners, Bad customer service..and I mean BAD
  • RichMoly RichMoly

    Can you please be more specific, in what way were they rude to your brother? Also, you've been twice, did you consider the customer service to be "terrible" on both occasions? Cheers

Not to be missed!

5 Posted on 08 / 23 / 2011

Our expectations were more than met when we ate here last Saturday. As soon as we walked in we were greeted with a friendly smile and warm welcome. The service was first class in this family run restaurant. The pizzas were huge and full of tasty ingredients. You can have vegan "cheezly" on any pizza. We had a very tasty side salad with ours. There was vegan cheesecake as well but unfortunately we were too full to have a dessert. We will definitely try it next time. Highly recommended.

Pros: vegan options, tasty food, friendly staff
Cons: none
