Be extra clear you're vegan.

They have vegan options. Definitely be very super clear on asking for all of the ingredients to be vegan. I got served regular ranch with cows milk and meat on my pizza even though I ordered everything vegan.

Pros: Vegan options

Cons: They are not careful and served me meat with I ate

Vegan options

The vegan options themselves are 5 star, but unfortunately this place also serves meat :(
They have vegan chik'n, cheeze, and cream sauces so they can make almost anything here vegan! I'm in love with the cheezy bread, omg

Pros: Almost anything can be made vegan, Full of flavor

Cons: Not fully vegan

Delicious vegan options

When in the area we always get Tomato Joe’s at least once, perfect for the vegans in the family, the vegan ranch (and siracha one) are so tasty. Love that we can get vegan meats on a pizza. The sandwiches are great too, haven’t tried the vegan pasta though. Loved the garlic bread, very garlicky haha.

Pros: Vegan pizza toppings, Vegan sandwiches, Vegan bread/garlic and cheese

Great options for pizza, appetizers & breads. These are all marked on the menu in green. Food was very nice and didn’t take long to be ready

Pros: Very clearly marked on the menu on the vegan item, Beer crust is really tasty , Little outdoor patio is pet friendly

Good Vegan Pizza

I'm not sure what kind of vegan cheese they use. I don't think it's Daiya, maybe Miyokos? Whatever it is it's really good, TOO good. I thought it was real cheese at first and became upset, I was reassured that it wasn't. I would definitely introduce non-vegan friends/family to vegan pizza at this place.

Pros: Great pizza, Great choice of vegan cheese., Fair Prices.

Gave me regular cheese Ughh!

I am SO mad at this place. They gave me regular cheese not the vegan cheese by mistake. AND I ate 1 1/2 Pieces of it before I noticed something was up. Ugggh! They also mixed up the order putting jalepenos on my pizza instead of my husbands. Yuck. You order at the counter so My advice is to check your receipt carefully to make sure they put in your order right!!!

Pros: Good vegan options

Cons: Only outdoor seating and very basic.

This is my favorite place! Just when I thought I had to give up pizza for good, unless I made it myself, I found this gem of a place. I didn't expect much the first time I was here. I really hate Daiya, so when I ordered, I asked for light cheese. After biting into my first slice, I realized the creamy cheesy goodness I tasted didn't belong to Daiya. After further inquiry, I found out they use Follow Your Heart cheese. The only downfall I have with this place is that I live about 50 miles away. WHaaaaa! I place an order for pick up anytime I find myself within 10 miles of this place. It's probably a good thing for my waistline that I don't live near.

I want to share my favorite pizza combinations with you because I tend to order outside of the box. Everyone I have shared these with- carnivores and all- have enjoyed them. I haven't tried any other crust, other than their beer crust, but I can't imagine the other choices they have being any better than that deliciousness! So, here are my two favorites:

Beer crust
Vegan cheese
Olive oil (instead of pizza sauce)
Vegan chorizo
Artichoke hearts
Enchilada drizzle on top

Beer crust
Vegan cheese
BBQ sauce
Artichoke Hearts
Red Peppers

Trust me when I say cashews on a pizza are just sinful!

Other points of interest at this place are the many, many choices for everyone. Every time I go in, they seem to add to their menu, even more vegan options.If you aren't vegan, they have about half a dozen crust, sauce, AND cheese choices. They also carry more than the boring traditional toppings. Their banana peppers are even roasted on the premises- no watered down stuff out of a jar! You might think their prices are a little high, but after eating here, that thought won't pop into your head again. They serve a quality product and don't skimp on anything!

Pros: Vegan Options, Gourmet Choices

Cons: Not a franchise

Best Pizza!

I decided to go to this place because they had options for us vegans as well as for the non vegan members of my family. We were blown away! This is more of a take out place than a sit down restaurant (think a super incredible version of little caesars), but they did have comfy chairs to wait in while they made our pizzas fresh. We got two 16" vegan pizzas (the micro brew crust really is to die for!) and our non veg sister got her own regular pizza.

We took the pizzas home, started chowing down and the oohs/aahs started flowing. This pizza was OUT OF THIS WORLD! So good, in fact, that our sister stopped eating her regular pizza and started stealing ours. Another win for the vegans!

They use soy cheese (I think from Follow Your Heart), so I couldn't eat there often cause I'm trying to watch my soy intake, but for the rare pizza craving this place is TOTALLY worth it! (Don't forget the micro-brew crust!)

Pros: Really nice people, Micro-brew crust, amazingly fresh toppings

Great pizza!

I've lived just up the street from this place for most of my life and when I found out that there was a new pizza place moving in with VEGAN pizza options, I couldn't believe it. I've been going to Tomato Joe's for quite some time now and am very impressed with the vegan pizza they offer. The staff are nice and the owners are well educated about veganism. I recommend getting a vegan pizza made with the Viking Beer crust. It's really good! In case anyone was wondering, they use "Vegan Gourmet" as the soy cheese and not "Daiya", but I happen to love both so it doesn't really bother me which brand they go with.
