Vegan Freddy Prince is the best!

Often get slices here when we're in Greenpoint, it never disappoints, every slice I've tried is yummy but hands down favorite is the Vegan Freddy Prince which is a Sicilian slice with Numu vegan mozzarella, Be-Hive vegan sausage, tomato sauce, Follow Your Heart vegan Parm, and a crunchy sesame seed bottom crust. One slice is filling but if I'm really hungry I always want 2 slices! The shop is typically busy, but the guys that work there are fast and friendly, even with a long line it never takes too long to get your order.

Pizza just like you love and remember, but vegan

All the vibes of an old school slice joint, but with delicious vegan options (and not just one, several)! The “hipster urban barn decor” mentioned in the overview above refers to the sit-down Paulie Gee’s on Greenpoint Ave, which is the original location—this is more of a grab’n’go situation even though there is a good amount of seating in the back. Crusts are perfectly crispy, toppings create layered flavor, prices are fair, and they keep things moving so you can be in and out pretty quickly if that’s your goal. Highly recommended!

Finally, a large pizza

The best thing about this pizza is that it was very large. The pizza itself was good, but I wouldn't say that this was the best pizza I've ever had.

Pros: Large portions

Provided the NYC pizza experience!

I tried the special vegan pizza slice which had a form of vegan mince meat/ sausage meat on it with sauerkraut. However the star was the “deep” (?) pizza with the same vegan meats, but more tomato sauce on a thicker dough. Even my non-vegan BF preferred it over his pepperoni pizza.

Pros: Pizza was yum, Friendly staff

By the slice!

It’s not the fanciest pizza I’ve ever had, but it’s got a great vibe and man it’s awesome to be able to grab just a slice. You will not be disappointed by this cute little joint!

Good slices

There were 3 vegan options. They only had one left. It was damn good. And they included a surprise complimentary slice. A bonus for sure.

Not as Good as I Remember

Stop there for the first time in a couple of years. Got a slice and I was actually a little underwhelmed. My memories tasted better than the pizza did. Got a slice of pregame to going to their OG place.
Got a vegan Freddy Prinze and it was dry and way too little cheese.

Great vegan slice in Greenpoint

I’ve been going to Paulie Gee’s since they first opened. For a relaxing sit down dining experience check out the restaurant on Greenpoint Ave but for a delicious vegan slice on the go the Slice Shop is a great choice although you can also hang there and sample one of the many delicious craft beers on tap or in a can/bottle. I’ve tried all the vegan slices and they are among the best in the city but I think my favorite is the Vegan Vidalia Square which features tomato sauce, Follow Your Heart vegan parm, and caramelized Vidalia onions.

Best Vegan Pizza in NYC

Found this place by accident and so glad I did! They have so many vegan options that it’s hard to choose from. It’s the closest thing I’ve found to real pizza. The vegan slices are so good it satisfies any craving I have for regular pizza. I highly recommend the square vegan onion slice!

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Best vegan pizza!

I've lived in NYC for over ten years and I never tried Paulie Gee's until this month. Seriously, what was I thinking? This is the BEST vegan pizza I've ever tasted. They have multiple flavors and everything about it is perfection! Definitely a must for any vegan craving pizza in NYC! Four stars only because they are not fully vegan.

Good slice. Vegan slice options might be limited

I have eaten at the Paulie Gee's restaurant in Brooklyn before. Amazing pizza. We stopped by, but the wait was going to be over an hour, so we went to the slice shop instead. They serve a more traditional NY style slice here (think Screamer's) as opposed to the wood-fired Neapolitan at the restaurant. They have a few vegan items on offer. But be aware that they might not have much to eat when you want it. When we went through the line, only one of their vegan pies had any slices left. I told them I didn't mind waiting for them to make more, but they really only seemed interested in pumping out more (dairy) cheese pizzas and (actual animal flesh) pepperoni. Luckily, they said they had a special in the queue. The special had mozzarella, Beyond Sausage, tomato sauce, and jalapenos. It was amazing. I also got a square slice with sauce and vidalia onions. Also really good. So depending what type of pizza you like, you may want to visit only one or both Paulie Gee locations (they are close enough together that you can walk between them if the restaurant is too busy). And if you want vegan slices, you may have to order an entire pie.

Pros: Great NYC slices, A few vegan options

Cons: Vegan slices might be old or they might be out

Very good vegan options!

There’s always a king line, that said, New Yorkers know what’s up, this place is very good, non pretentious and tasty, it’s in Greenpoint bordering Williamsburg, the staff is super nice and vegan savy, they even have Beyond Meat sausage toppings! The vegan cheese is gooey and delicious. They have 4 different vegan slices and sometimes they can be a bit dry but it’s very good for the most part.

Pros: Vegan options , Knowledgeable staff, Affordable

Cons: If you come by closing time, slices can be dry

A perfect slice

Paulie Gee’s slice shop offers the pizza you thought you lost by going vegan. It’s a great place to go with omni’s as you all have options. They offer 4 varieties of vegan pizzas- the Sicilian style with sesame on the bottom of the crust is my absolute favorite! The plain cheeze pizza can be skipped. This place is a much more casual version of the nice restaurant down the road. I waited 30 minutes in line, but it was worth it

Pros: Variety of vegan options, Ideal pizza, Value for money

Cons: Wait time

Good slice pizza!

They had at least 3-4 vegan pizza's to pick a slice or two. Traditional thin crust as well as deep dish. Tasty, and fun atmosphere but honestly pretty expensive even for NY. At $4+ for a slice, especially thin crust, don't be too hungry when you arrive.

Pros: Tasty pizza slices, Fun diner type atmosphere

Cons: Kind of expensive for a thin slice of pizza

Classic slice shop setting with a lot of vegan options. They have the best plain vegan slice I’ve ever tried. My husband and I are a huge fan of all that Paulie Gee’s does!

Great vegan slices in a traditional style slice shop

Great new slice shop with lots of vegan options! This is the pizzeria outpost of Paulie Gee's restaurant, which is known for its vegan options. It is actually called "Paulie Gee's Slice Shop" which is what you'll find in Google Maps if you're looking for it on there.

They always have a few vegan slices on offer, or you can order a whole pie from their vegan menu. We tried the classic cheese slice and the vegan supreme - definitely go for the supreme. The cheese slice was a bit skimpy on the cheese. The supreme had a couple kinds of vegan meats, peppers, and cheese. So good!

The interior is decorated like a classic, nostalgic slice shop and they have a bar in the back selling canned beers.

tbh, if I'm in the area I'd much rather go to Screamer's, NYC's fully vegan pizzeria, because it's simply amazing and you have much more choice. But if you're with omnivores or don't wanna walk 10 more minutes to Screamer's, Paulie Gee's will definitely scratch that pizza itch! If it was in any other neighborhood it'd knock all the vegan pizza game out of the water, but its competing with some of the best vegan pizza ever just a few blocks away.

Pros: vegan pizza, Good prices, awesome interior

Cons: plain cheese slice doesn't have a lot of cheese, amazing pizza nearby at Screamer's
