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.

Delicious! - Edit

Pizza so good it tricked my omni friends! So tasty, I recommend the cheese pizza, and breadsticks, maybe some cheesecake for dessert!

Pros: 100 percent vegan!

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

Cons: 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

All vegan pizzeria! :D - Edit

We had a delicious pizza at Cruzer and the staff were really friendly and helpful!

We also got a piece of orange cake to take away which was very tasty.

It is so amazing to go to an all vegan pizzeria - if I lived in LA I would order from Cruzer all the time!

Pros: All vegan menu, Vegan desserts, Vegan fast food

Vegan heaven! - Edit

This place is so bad for people who are on a diet because you cannot have enough of their food! I've had their Calzones, pizza and sandwiches. I've taken my meat eater family members and they agree that this stuff is amazing! If you live in Los Feliz, you're in luck because they deliver! If you are not close to them (like me) you will not have much of a pleasant experience dinning in. It is a whole in the wall with a few bar stools making it difficult to eat there if there are more patrons there already. The worst part, as anyone living in the area knows, is the parking! Yes, Cruzer pizza has a little bit of parking but that's it, a little bit. If the parking lot is full, you're gonna have to search for street parking and good luck! They do take phone pick up orders so I would recommend you to do that. I don't need to speak more about the food because it speaks for itself. Be ready to break your diet because that's stuff is addictive like crack!

Pros: Delicious food, Affordable, Variety of dishes

Cons: Small parking lot, Small restaurant, Addictive food!!!

Spaghetti was boring underneath all the cheese.
Pizza didn't jump out.

Cons: Bland, Not Enough Taste, Pricey
