Pizza by the slice!

Finally Cruzer’s is officially offering their delicious pizza by the slice. Take an extra slice home for later as their crust crisps up nicely when reheated. #Veganuary

Pros: 100% Vegan

Philly Cheesesteak Pizza

My fave pizza is their Philly cheesesteak. It reminds me of when Domino’s used to sell it. The desserts and knots are great too.

Pros: Delivery/takeout, All vegan

Best vegan pizza in LA

Richtig viele Varianten an Pizza, die es auch als Slices gibt sodass man mehr probieren kann. Zudem gibt es verschiedene Nudelgerichte, Salate uns Baguettes. Außerdem verschiedene Desserts.

Pros: Größen, Auswahl, Geschmack

Not great

I should have known this pizza wouldn’t be good when I saw they use Daiya cheese. IMO it’s the worst vegan cheese and sticks to your teeth. It seemed like they used store bought vegan meat substitutes, as well. Overall very subpar and overpriced for essentially grocery store quality pizza.

Cons: Expensive, Sticky daiya cheese, Flavorless

Good eating in the neighborhood

The vegan cheesy breadsticks alone is good enough. I had the Jamaican vegan pizza it was good.

Pretty good

Normally I prefer pizza with real cheese because I don‘t like the taste of vegan cheese. Since I was in companion with vegans I also had a vegan cheese pizza, surprisingly tasty.

Great vegan pizza

Finally! A vegan pizza with a thick crust! Toppings are delicious and fresh, and the tiramisu is FIRE.

Good pizza, but not the best

If you're looking for a nice vegan pizza with lots of options to choose from then check out Cruze. I had the Hawaiian pizza and liked the texture and taste of it #Veganuary

The cheese breadsticks are life-changing

I just have to say the pizza is pretty good, but the breadsticks are the absolute best cheesy vegan breadsticks I’ve ever had. Add them to your order, they’re amazing!!!

Pros: Lots of options

Pizza to die for!

If you visit L.A. you definitely have to stop by Cruzers Pizza and try this amazing pizza! I have been to other restaurants in L.A. that offer vegan pizza, but nothing compares to this, not even any vegan pizza I ever tried in Europe. My personal favorite is the buffalo chicken pizza but the Jamaica pizza is also highly recommendable. The staff is very friendly and helpful, but the location is so small and has no restroom, so eating it there isn't that comfy. Luckily they have a delivery service as well!

Came back 5 years later and I am delighted to see that they expended their location, and the pizza is still as good as I remembered it!

Okay I guess

100% vegan pizza with vegan cheese and meat alternatives. Besides pizza they also serve sandwiches, pasta, appetizers, salads, desserts and sides. Personally, I didn't like the vegan pizza cheese. The pizza was also too greasy for me.

Pros: All vegan, Many different dishes

Cons: Expensive

Cons: No slices, full pie only.

Bad customer service

Their pizza may be good, but that gets overridden if you're greeted by an employee or owner that treats you like an unwelcome inconvenience.

Since I'm deaf, I gesture or write in order to communicate. I gestured, and he just stared blankly at me. I then wrote down a question and he refused to write down his reply four times - speaking even after letting him know I'm deaf - then finally hung his head, rubbed his eyes and wrote "vegan", which didn't answer my question. My only question was "what brand is your chicken and sausage?", which should really already be on the menu instead of "vegan chicken" or "plant based sausage". I try asking again, and he frustratingly shrugs his shoulders.

No sign of good customer service in sight. He doesn't ask me anything, not even what kind of crust I want, but by this time I'm too aghast to ask any more questions. I almost walk out. He then proceeds to smile and chat with the next customer.

Next time, he should be more welcoming towards differently-abled people.

Pros: Good pizza

Cons: Ableistic, discriminatory behavior

Fantastic pizza!

This place is amazing and consistently makes great pizzas. They offer a gluten-free crust which is really good and actually holds up well the next day. They're generous with the cheese which is the best and pretty rare. Staff is always friendly. Definitely recommend!!

Pros: All vegan, Lots of gluten free options , Cheesy goodness

Cons: Parking can be rough

Pizza is sufficient, but not great. Anyone can make this pizza at home with dough, plain sauce, and Daiya cheese. It’s nothing special and not worth the trip. Go to Hot Tongue if you want great vegan pizza.

Pros: Fully vegan establishment , Decent prices

Cons: Not a lot of flavor, Customer service isn’t great

Seriously the best pizza I've ever had. Best marinara sauce I've ever had. Wish I could buy it by the jarful. I'd dip everything in it (everything!)

So glad I found this place

Was looking for another pizza place that happened to be closed on Tuesdays and was fortunate enough to find that Cruzer Pizza was only a couple miles away. The breadsticks are great—doughy yet crisply. The pizza was also delicious. The tiramisu was downright phenomenal. I’m eager to try other menu items, too. Definitely a vegan pizza place worth checking out.

Pros: It’s all vegan! , Delicious food that’s reasonably priced for LA , Friendly staff
