Enjoyed an excellent vegan pizza at Vesuvius. Service was quick and friendly, prices reasonable, and they even went out of their way to cut our pizza with a different cutter without us asking. :-)

Pros: delicious food, friendly staff, Daiya cheese

Daiya vegan pizza

The vegan pizza options aren't listed on the menu, but they have Daiya vegan cheese available. I've heard they have vegan meats but haven't ordered them so I don't know what brand they use.

I usually order the #5 pizza with vegan cheese. Everytime I've eaten there, I've left happy. The service is fast and friendly. I've never had a mix-up with my order. The pizza crust is the best part, though. It's delicious. It is quite salty (they coat the crust with salt water before baking) which I really like, but if you wanted you could ask them not to salt it.

Pros: Awesome crust, Fast service, Daiya Cheese
