Occasionally good, stingy with condiments and heavy on the fats... - Edit

This place lies very centrally in Västerås, they have a wide selection and the dedicated vegan menu is a definite plus.

Occasionally the pizzas have nice flavour, especially is you ask for fresh garlic, but their choice of "vegan cheese" leaves an unpleasant and very fatty aftertaste. A garlic sauce that was based on one of the many veg-yoghurts available or the iFraiche would lift the products considerably, their current garlic sauce seems to be a roux-based wheat emulsion of garlic, not very pleasant at all...

Prices are however quite high, and they are stingy with vegan condiments to a comical point far too often (e.g. half a decilitre of "vegan kebab" in a viking pizza for ca 120 SEK), you might as well called it a wrapped salad with a smidgeon of vegan-products...

The locale is quite depressing, although the surrounding setting doesn't help.

Pros: Dedicated vegan menu, Wide selection, Vegan half-fabricates on the pizzas

Cons: Expensive, Stingy with vegan products, Fatty and unpleasant aftertaste

Not many of these Pizza Places in Sweden - Edit

Great Pizza Place in general, but also one of the few with a large Vegan Menu (about 15 different vegan pizzas with vegan cheese, and some with uncommon ingredients for sweden such as soy meat). Attracts visitors from a larger area, including Stockholm (which is a good review since Västerås is bit off...). Friendly staff. Only con is that they charge a bit extra for the Vegan Menu than you would expect for Pizzas.

Great pizza at a great price - Edit

I saw the earlier review of this restaurant and decided to try it on our way through Västerås. They were no longer serving the falafel pizza, but as they are working out a new vegan menu (!) they made me a vegan pizza with a number of vegan toppings on it (cheese, mince, salami, and ham), and the friendly staff were very happy to discuss their future vegan menu plans and my views on the different toppings. The crust was lovely - just like a normal Swedish pizza. The salad bar (with olives, pepper, red sauce, pineapple, etc) was very good and fresh and included in the very reasonable price. Also, the location was good, near the town centre, with nearby parking available.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Pros: Tasty food, with salad bar included, Friendly owners, Good price

Cons: None

Nice experience - Edit

I found this place on HappyCow and was keen to try their falafel pizza. Before I did I made sure that all of the ingredients were vegan. They must have spent 10 minutes going over every single ingredient with me and they never lost their temper. The pizza was as yummy as different. Not only did they put falafel on top of it, but then they sprinkled it generously with shredded lettuce! And the combination did work! The only downside was that it was very thin and crispy and the knife was absolutely useless, so I had to tear it in the end and the lettuce kept falling off. I took ages finishing it and the time I did it was cold. I could have had a free salad with it (made of cabbage) but I didn't as I wasn't absolutely certain about the wine vinegar in it.

Pros: Patient staff, Good value for money, Free icy water

Cons: Pizza too hard and crispy

ombah 28 Jul 2012 - Why wouldn't wine vinegar be vegan?

RisingForce 29 Jul 2012 - Because it's made from wine and wine is often non-vegan, sometimes even non-vegetarian, depending on what is used in the fining process. This site gives a good overview: http://www.bcawa.ca/winemaking/fining.htm
