Better options out there than this - Edit

This is a classic, raucous Baltimore pizza joint buried in the heart of Fells Point. Plenty of locals, but also lots of tourists. It's hot in the summer and the staff always seems frazzled. I used to go here when it was the only place in Baltimore to get a pizza with vegan cheese, but it's not really worth it now. There are other places that cater more to vegans and are more pleasant to eat in. Plus, as other reviewers have brought up, their interpretation of "vegan" is up for debate. However, I will say that whenever I have ordered from the short, older woman with glasses (an owner? she's almost always there), she knows what vegan means and knows to substitute the butter-based sauce with olive oil on the pizza that I always order. I've never asked about the tomato-based pizza sauce so can't speak to whether or not that is vegan. Perhaps best to play it safe and order a pizza with olive oil and no other sauce.

Pros: serves vegan pizza

Cons: busy, hot in summer, nonexistent atmosphere

Vegan Pizza! - Edit

I had actually been here before on previous trips to Baltimore. I went this time around and was excited that they still had vegan pizza! I order two slices-when I got them the slices were HUGE! I was so stuffed. This place is reasonably priced and the pizza is yummy. Go check it out!

Pros: Reasonably priced, Friendly staff

Yummy! - Edit

I am rather picky about my pizza, and I can say enthusiastically that I quite like this place. I have yet to try the vegan pizza, but I can vouch for the plain pizza and pizza with veggies. I have never experienced the long lines others write about in their reviews, but I can understand that might happen since it's in a busy location.

Updated from previous review on Sunday August 15, 2010
I finally got a chance to try the vegan pizza, and I liked it a lot. I was told the same thing that another reviewer posted about: that if you get vegan pizza by the slice, they just take off the dairy cheese on already made plain pizza, put Teese on it, and heat it up. I thought this sounded disgusting, so I opted for a 10" personal size pizza, which is fine by me anyway since I have yummy leftovers!

Pros: Tasty, Great vegan options, Nice atmosphere

Cons: To be truly vegan, have to get a pie

Awesome pizza - Edit

Stopped here because we were craving some vegan pizza that we did not have to make. We ordered the Ultimate Veggie pizza (minus the eggplant). It was one of the best pizzas we have ever had. All the flavors just blended together perfectly. To top it off the atmosphere was great. It is in a beautiful part of Baltimore. Next time we are down in Baltimore we will definitely go back. I would give it 5 cows, but I can only rate a non-veg restaurant 4.

Pros: Delicious, great atmosphere, helpful staff

Cons: I, don't , know

I had the vegan cheeze pizza last wkend and it was wonderful! I highly recommend. The crust, sauce, cheeze, EVERYTHING...was in perfect balance. I

Pros: Delicious

The "vegan" pizza is their regular pizza with dairy cheese wiped-off and teese added. The cashier said this is how they *always* make the vegan pizza.

Cons: not vegan, gross, yuck

Soya Pizza is Yum Yum - Edit

I was weary at first but thought, "hey, I don't have to make it!," and got a small caper pizza with soya cheese. It was very good, the cheese was a little too sweet for typical pizza taste, however, I'm not picky. I know it's hard to find this option in Baltimore, do you gotta take what you can get! I did eat the WHOLE 10" pizza if that says anything.

Pros: Vegan Pizza!?, Unique Toppings, Friendly Service

Cons: Gourmet soda with H.F.C.S., Very Expensive for Soy Cheese!

Oooh how I love this place!!! - Edit

The walk round trip from my front door to BOP and back is 5 miles and yet I do it (and drag people with me) regularly. It is just that good. Where else can you get vegan pizza by the slice that is tasty and fast! The service is always good and quick and everyone I have ever taken (veg or not) has loved it!

Pros: vegan by the slice, friendly staff, fairly quick

Cons: it gets crowded

Phenomenal! - Edit

I ordered a large/18" ($18) teese ($4) pizza with artichokes, sundried tomato, black olives, and basil (toppings $8). $30 for a pizza is a bit pricey but it was quite big and we'll have leftovers for a couple days. The pizza was downright delicious! All of the ingredients were super fresh and that was the best sauce I've EVER tasted. The staff was very nice & service was great. We were lucky enough to get immediate service but I did notice a long line form while we were eating. The atmosphere was cozy and laid back. This will definitely be a monthly treat for our family - maybe 2x/month if we can afford to!

Pros: excellent food, fresh ingredients, friendly staff

Cons: pricey

GREAT Pizza! - Edit

Brick Oven Pizza is a "must visit" place for vegans. They use "Teese" vegan "cheese" which is absolutely amazing. They do charge extra for the vegan cheese, but it is understandable as Teese is expensive.
They also offer a mock mozzarella (with the Teese) and tomato salad.
Both are amazing.
Lines can be extremely long there, but it is worth the wait!

Pros: delicious, location

Cons: pricee, wait

Good Pizza, Not So Good Prices - Edit

This is a good place to go with your nonveg friends and/or family. The prices for the plain pies are fair but the price for individual slices with vegan cheese is a bit high, especially if you get veg toppings. The toppings were skimpy too. Still, its great that they even offer soy cheese, the crust and sauce were really good and the service was fast.
