Serves meat, vegan options available. The pizza and pasta menu features some vegetarian pastas, a vegan pizza, and build your own pizza possibility that includes tomato sauce, lots of veggies, daiya cheese and faux chicken. Just ignore all the hunting decor and meat on the menu.

First Review by Bonnie Goodman

Best Pizza Ever! - Edit

My family (two teens who are non-veg, husband and I who are both vegan) visited Prospectors Pizza on a recent visit to Denali at the recommendation of our tour bus driver. The pizza, quite simply, was the best any of us had ever had. We had many vegan options, and the kids loved the vegan pizza as much as the regular. Our server Susan was delightful. We wished we could have had more meals there to sample more items. Wish HC allowed me to give it 5 Cows!

Pros: Amazing food, plentiful options, friendly staff

Cons: Noisy

Good, but not for vegans - Edit

The servers were knowledgeable and friendly, and the quality of the pizza was good, but they were all out of both kinds of vegan cheese. Our server told us that the vegan options aren't available very often due to the low demand. Would recommend to call ahead to check if vegan ingredients are in stock.

Pros: Friendly staff

Cons: Dead animals on walls, High prices, Low availability of vegan ingredients

Great vegan pizza option - Edit

We were hesitant about what vegan options we would have available in Alaska, but we were very pleased to find Prospectors. Updated from the previous review, they now serve daiyya cheese. You can build your own pizza from lots of veggie options, their vegan red sauce, and vegan chicken. They also have soy milk (but not for espressos which are from a machine). The meals are pricey though.

Pros: Good service, Delicious vegan pizza, Lots of local beers

Cons: Expensive , Large serving sizes, Dead animal decor

the Vegan Tundra Pizza is NOT VEGAN (yet!) - Edit

We just got home from the BEST vacation ever in Alaska, and we just loved Prospectors Pizza!
Especially when we saw this on the menu:

- Fresh Spinach, Artichoke Hearts, Tomato Sauce, Garlic, and Soya Mozzarella (lactose/meat-free/vegan)

It was a great vegan pizza! except it wasn't vegan :o(

Unfortunately, we found out after dinner (when we wanted to thank the chef) that their vegan cheese is not vegan.
They use Galaxy Foods "Veggie Shreds", but sadly, the idiots who make that cheese put dried skim milk in it! It's the 2nd ingredient in that cheese.
(So this really isn't the pizza place's fault - why anyone would put skim milk in a soy cheese is a mystery!)
Not vegan:

I encouraged them to order "Vegan Shreds", made by the same company, Galaxy Nutritional Foods.
YES vegan:

and we also told them about Daiya:

We hope to enjoy one of these actual vegan cruelty-free non-dairy cheeses on the Vegan Tundra next time we visit Denali!
so, if you decide to try get a vegan pizza here, ask first to see what kind of vegan cheese they are using!
