Created a vegan pizza - Edit

My friends, who are not vegan, loved the pizza! We created around 1:45am. Crust was on point. They had seitan, mushrooms, and the usually veggie toppings you can add on there. All their dough/crust is vegan. This place offers vegan options. Seems like they understand. To me, it was decent for a late night after clubbing vegan pizza.

Pros: Offer late night vegan pizza

Cons: I just felt a little rushed. We did get there 15mi

Build Your Own Pizza - Edit

After over-doing it on Dimo's pizza, I finally decided to give Roots a shot. The owners have a couple of other restaurants that include vegan options, so I assumed this was the case for pizza as well, and I wasn't disappointed.

The first time I went, I built my own pizza with red sauce, mushrooms, onions, and sauerkraut (self-dubbed: the pierogi pizza). Unlike a lot of pizza places, they were not skimpy on the toppings! The variety of veggie/fruit toppings as well as some unique ones definitely makes this place stand out.

The second time I went, the staff informed me that they did have a vegan cheese. I have no idea why they don't include this on the menu. I generally prefer my pizzas without the cheese, but if you can list 18 types of meat and 12 types of cheese I don't see why the vegan option should be so hush-hush.

EDIT: It looks like they finally included a vegan option on the menu! Though they still don't include the vegan cheeses on the build-your-own menu, at least people will be able to know they exist - just ask.

Specially-seasoned ground seitan, vegan ranch, vegan cheddar, vegan mozzarella, shredded romaine, diced pickles, and diced tomatoes.
