Good on the Go - Edit

This place was just as described. Little walk up counter pizza parlor, where you order by the slice right there.
We got the marinara pizza slice, it is basically pizza bread with marinara on top and some spices. We took it on the go going to another vegan restaurant, and it was a nice starter. It's definitely not a *good* vegan pizza but its decent and does the job.
Its sort of like having garlic bread with marinara on top. That being said, i'm sure you could sit down and have them put lots of veggies on it but it would probably still be average.
No complaining! For 45baht/slice this was as expected.

Pros: on the go, take out, good location

Cons: average

Can't complain - Edit

Like the previous reviewer, you can choose to complain about this restaurant's lack of care if you like, and he's correct in his complaints. However I personally think that it's a little bit much to expect this bustling restaurant that serves both eat in and take-away customers at the hugely busy MRT/BTS interchange, to be worrying about which utensils they use for each pizza. Especially seeing as the vast majority of customers will be non-vegan. I instead am thankful that a pizza restaurant actually has a vegan offering, so that I can get some fresh food to take away when I'm changing trains like a normal person, because most pizza restaurants don't offer that.

The vegan pizza is called 'marinara', and it's essentially just dough with tomato sauce on it. And I would say that yes, it does taste as bland as it sounds, even though they try to give it a little more flavour with herbs. But even though it's fairly tasteless, that doesn't mean that it's inedible, and it's better than nothing if you're in a rush.

If you want a really delicious, vegan focussed, sit-down meal, and you have a bit of time, then the excellent 'May Veggie Home' is only a five minute walk from this pizza restaurant. However if you're with some carnivorous friends that you can't convince to go vegan for the night, or if you just need something quick to take-away, then I'm actually very thankful that they have a vegan offering, because let's face it, most pizza places don't.

Vegan options not handled properly - Edit

Even though Pala Pizza offers vegan options, from my past experience, it seems like there is not proper handling of vegan food. The vegan pizza is picked up with the same utensils used to pick up non-vegan pizza, which is contaminated with cheese. Last time I was there and ordered a vegan slice (which was over 5 months back), I found a piece of cheese on it. I have not been back since.
I believe a restaurant offering vegan options, should know how to separate and handle the vegan food properly to avoid contamination from animal protein.

Vegan Pizza by the Slice - Edit

I was super excited to discover this place when I googled "Vegan Pizza Bangkok"! The vegan pizza option is a marinara pizza with plenty of garlic and it's ridiculously good. You can order by the slice, 1/2 meter or meter. They label vegan options on the menu and there were also soups and salads to choose from.
