Progressive Pizza - Edit

Like others here, I also saw where the cross-contamination can be an issue. I did not actually see the person making my pizza change gloves (although that doesn’t mean he didn’t). They do keep the vegan cheese under the counter away from the regular cheese. They do use their hands to grab all of the ingredients, so it’s likely that many of the vegetables have been touched by hands that touched meat/cheese.

That being said, the pizza itself is actually very good. I’m happy to see a place in Springfield that offers vegan cheese at all, and I want to continue to support places like this, even if they have a little learning to do.

There is an upcharge for the vegan cheese, but my pizza still came in under $11, and I’d pay just as much for a cheeseless pizza at any of the other establishments in Springfield, so I consider it a good value.

Pros: Vegan Cheese, Friendly Staff, Speedy Preparation

Cons: Cross Contamination

great vegan pizza - Edit

I got a great vegan 11" pizza, with ingredients that I selected, for only $8. The restaurant has been here for some time, but I thought they sold pies!? They also have salads, but the pizza is what caught my eye. There were a lot of toppings to choose from and they added more of a particular topping when I asked for it.

Pros: taste was very good - I love pizza, vegan, relatively inexpensive

Cons: can't think of any

#vegan v VGF - Edit

Appreciate being able to eat here. They're a little sloppy keeping their toppings clean but the guy working was awesome and understood what VGF means. The GF crust was so-so. Traveling so can't be picky.

Pros: I could eat here.

Tasty and cheap - Edit

This pizza was really tasty, and there were tons of veggie options. I just wish they had a vegan protein option.

Vegan Pizza - Edit

The crust is delicious. I do wish they took cross-contamination more seriously. However, it's probably similar to other pizza places in this regard, it's just very out in the open. I have noticed lately they've been changing their gloves when I ask for vegan cheese so maybe they're making more of an effort but it doesn't seem like there is often cheese in the marinara sauce. I just ask them to not get any on my pizza.

Pros: Vegan Cheese, Lots of Veggies, Fast

Cons: Cross-contamination occurs

Okay - Edit

Pretty good pizza. Love that they have vegan cheese. Didn't really have enough veggies though. The reason I'm giving it a 2 star is because they need to take cross contamination seriously. My family is vegan and is allergic to dairy. The 1st guy that started making our pizza put on fresh gloves, but then before I said that I wanted vegan cheese he touched the dairy kind. The marinara sauce also had dairy cheese dropped in it. The 2nd guy that put on our toppings put on fresh gloves, but when we were choosing our vegetables I saw a lot of cheese and meat dropped in some of the veggies. We didn't get some of the veggies because of that. We didn't like that they used their hands to pick out the toppings. They should use utensils so there is no problem with residue of other toppings if someone doesn't change their gloves. My mother got the same pizza as me and later that night she got sick. In conclusion, we will not eat here again because of the cross contamination unless they start being careful not to drop anything in the other toppings and use utensils to dip out the toppings and cheese. My mother doesn't want to get sick again and I don't want to get sick either.

IsiDixie 20 Apr 2017 - I trust is vegan, I really think if they offer vegan cheese, the crust it does too.

naturelover197 08 May 2017 - I checked with them and the house crust is vegan, but the gluten free crust is not because it has gelatin.

good and cheap - Edit

Great pizza for under 10 bucks. I think this is the only place in town to get vegan cheese on your pie as well.

Pros: price
