First Review by VeggiePinkoKat

Ok, not the best vegan pizza I’ve had - Edit

We got a veggie pizza on GF crust and the GF chicken parmesan. The pizza was alright. The veggies didn’t seem the freshest. The chicken parmesan was ok. The “chicken” seemed to be gardein chicken strips which I could get at the store. The pasta was little pieces of spaghetti which seemed odd instead of normal spaghetti noodles. Overall it was alright. Probably wouldn’t go back.

Pros: 100% Vegan, Fast

Cons: Not a lot of gluten free options, Nothing seemed to be fresh or homemade, Small

Tasteful pizza - Edit

The pizza is amazing, they have many options of flavors. I ended up going personally to the place and it's quite small, just a place to get pizza to go . They have a small balcony and a small table. The pizza is very tasty.

Pros: Good pizza, Daiya cheese

Cons: Small place

We will be moving near here just so we can be in delivery range! - Edit

By far the best pizza you can get! And it's completely vegan! Their vegan ranch and marinara is also incredibly delicious. Get their cheese stuffed breadsticks! My boyfriend and I are ordering a new menu item every time we go and we have yet to be disappointed. Crust is crispy so you can tell they use quality dough and their ovens are set at the proper temperatures, unlike soggy cheap chains. We loved this place!

Pros: The Best Pizza Ever!, Everything is DELICIOUS, YES YES YES!

Cons: Limited Seating

Amazing Pizza - Edit

I have to say this is my most favorite pizzeria ever! They have delicious pizza, fresh and very flavorful! I have had the Hawaiian Pizza and Margarita Pizza, both are simply amazing. Their Cheese Breadsticks are almost too good to be true! They are as close to perfect as it comes, just the right amount of garlic, vegan butter and Daiya cheese! I am a huge fan of this place and highly recommend hitting it up anytime you possibly can!

OMG! - Edit

The BEST pizza in LA and all of SoCal, if you ask me. Come here and you will not be disappointed.

Great flavor and texture. Everything is very fresh and the staff is nice!

Cons: parking is a bit of an issue but hey, that's LA.

Best Pizza I‘ve eaten - Edit

I‘ve been there this January, by that time I was in transition, so not fully vegan as dairy products were still in use. I‘ve almost had all their pizzas and I have to say this is amongst the best, if not the best pizza I‘ve ever eaten. I can‘t eat any vegan pizza without automatically comparing... by now it‘s still unmatched...

Pros: Delicious , Variety of Pizzas

Cons: Small Space, Parking Lot is awfully small

Really good spot for good pizza - Edit

This place is great. Friendly staff, good food and all vegan! The only downside is their sauce, which though good lacked the super amazing wow factor I was hoping for. Moreover, even though I asked for extra sauce, I didn't really get any. Nonetheless, the food was still really good and the staff was fantastic! Would def come back again and again!

Great place to get vegan pizza - Edit

Lots of varieties, they even had whole wheat option. Taste was great. Friendly staff. Next time I visit LA, if I crave for a Pizza, will definitely order from them again.

tastes even better than it looks - Edit

Lots of options besides pizza but I went with the vegetable medium pizza which comes with your choice of 6 veggies. I chose the portobello mushrooms, mushrooms, spinach, garlic, EGGPLANT, and ARTICHOKE. Yuuuummmmmmm! If you're really hungry you could probably finish off the whole medium but I ate half and saved the rest for dinner.

Pizza to die for! - Edit

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!

Pros: Great pizza!, Fast service

Cons: No restrooms, Limited space

Really Good - Edit

I think Cruzer is probably the best specialty vegan pizza shop in LA and I enjoy it. I've had several pizzas and dishes from here. The only thing I might have a problem with is that I don't love Daiya vegan cheese. But it's definitely the best option in town as far as I've tasted when it comes to pizza! I've enjoyed the Buffalo Chicken sandwich from here! I'd recommend that.

Great pizza! - Edit

Cruzer is 100% vegan. It's know. For its pizzas but they have sandwiches, breadsticks, etc. This place has many mock-meat options if you are looking for that. I just had a vegetable pizza with 6 different veggies and Daiya cheese. This place is more of a take out spot so there is not much seating for large groups. Fantastic pizza!

Amazing service - Edit

Ordered a delicious pizza that arrived really fast. Thank you! Wish I could have ordered cupcakes too but they were not available for delivery, which I understand and which is also probably a good thing for my body :) thanks guys!

100% vegan pizza place - Edit

My favorite part of this place was the "100% vegan" sign right at the entrance. The food was good, but unfortunately relies on the Daiya crutch. Some may enjoy the flavor, but this reviewer does not.

Order a pie and take it with you; there's not too much room to sit and enjoy, particularly if you're there with friends.

Good vegan pizza - Edit

Good vegan pizza and very friendly customer service. The shop itself is not the most enjoyable place to eat your vegan pizza. I think I would be better to take the pizza to go or delivered if you live nearby.

Cheesy vegan pizza with friendly service - Edit

My husband and I stopped in here for some vegan pizza before we went to a Dodgers game recently. It's definitely more of a delivery place than sit-down, but the workers there are super friendly and they do have three bar seats and a small makeshift outside table. This place would be five stars for us if we were vegan and had a hard time eating pizza elsewhere. Given we're not vegan, I definitely prefer regular cheese or a cheese-less spicy marinara pizza. Daiya cheese is likely the best vegan cheese I've had out there, but it's the same amount of calories as regular cheese, but without the protein of it! It doesn't melt quite as well as regular cheese either.

All of that aside, Cruzer has a bunch of options with lots of different faux-meats as well. For people who are now vegan and used to not be, this is a paradise! They have about eight different pre-designed pizza combinations, but you can also build your own. The pizza is also well-priced for its size and amount of toppings. We didn't try dessert but they also offer those.

Certainly more of a delivery place if you live in the area, but definitely solid food and people.

Great food, friendly staff! - Edit

Came here after spending the day at VegFest LA. My wife and daughter had already been here before, but we are not often out in this area. Monica got the Philly Cheezsteak sandwich and I got the Buffalo chik'n Sandwich.

The staff was very friendly and we met a great couple who were regulars there. We talked about the VegFest (they missed it this year) but had a great conversation while waiting for the food.

Our sandwiches were HUGE and tasty. We weren't able to finish them so we took them home to enjoy later. I dropped off a new Excellent Reviews decal to replace their faded one. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area!

Pros: Great pizzeria selections, Friendly staff, Large portions

Cons: L.A. Parking, Limited seating

all vegan pizza joint - Edit

With gluten-free options! Love the rice crust. Order for delivery or pick up because there are two waiting seats inside which are totally usable to dine if alone, but not appropriate for groups. This place started as a regular pizza joint offering a vegan option and bam - vegan was so popular they made the whole switch. Long running. Great. Topping options. No meat or dairy on site. Thank you!

Vegan Pizza in LA - Edit

I love Cruzer's and wish they were closer. Heard they're looking for a space in Santa Monica / Venice. Hope they get one. I believe this is the only vegan pizzeria in LA.

Pros: All vegan pizzeria
