Two Boots Kicks A*s - Edit

We decided ahead of time to order the 12″ Night Tripper (named in honor of Louisiana music legend Dr John), a pie with sun-dried tomatoes, roasted garlic and jalapeño pesto on white. The pizza was made fresh and on our table in less than 15 minutes, a gorgeous work of art, which made us stoked to be plant-based! It was the single greatest dairy-free pizza we had eaten up until that moment (Nov 2015).

Two Boots pies start with a cornmeal crust, adding that necessary crunch to the chewiness of the thin slice. Although they were out of whole wheat dough at the time it is an option if you fancy that over the traditional white. The jalapeño pesto was perfect, piquant with a fresh bite that was balanced out by the creaminess of the “ricotta” and Daiya 'moz' combo. The pie was finished with the deep, lush flavor of the sun-dried tomato and bold-as-love super roasted garlic explosion. (If you love garlic, you will be in for a treat with this pie. If garlic isn’t your ally, you should probably pick another, the garlic is no joke here.)

In our opinion one important key to executing a successful vegan pizza is to make it into a specialty pie. A straight up vegan cheese pizza leaves the mouth aware of the three basic ingredients: crust, sauce, vegan-cheese. And in that awareness the mouth could get hung up on the vegan-cheesiness of the cheese, especially cheese such as Daiya, distinct and sometimes too salty. But having all the ingredients of the Night Tripper together, the mouth gets distracted by the sun-dried tomato and the roasted garlic rainbow, and the creaminess and the chewy crunchiness, and the spiciness from the pesto. So much so that it forgets it’s eating “vegan” pizza. And as we were enveloped in the process of savoring that divine pie, we stopped to remind ourselves that the masterpiece on our plate was plant-based and dairy free. Yes indeed, it's real cool to be plant-based, Two Boots for the win!


Pros: Multiple Locations in NYC, Super Accommodating to Plant-Based Appetites, Their "Veganize It' Campaign

Good! - Edit

Vegan pizza was pretty good - in contrast to the first review, we liked the artichokes. But we mostly liked the atmosphere of the place: a lot of bright colours, funny pizza names and weird pictures.

Pros: 5 or 6 vegan pizzas to choose from, decent subs

Cons: televisions on the wall, very pricey drinks

Decent pizza - Edit

They serve the same 2 vegan options every day, and neither of them were outstanding to me. Being vegan doesn't necessarily mean that I want pizza loaded with artichokes, but I guess it does for some people.

If you're craving some vegan pizza, and this is nearby, stop in. It's not as good as Vinnie's, though.

Pros: vegan pizza

Cons: serves meat, not impressed with toppings
