Cruzer Pizza, Los Angeles & National Vegan Pizza Day

Posted on

Yesterday was National Vegan Pizza Day, so my family and I got together for dinner. We were celebrating the 20th birthday of my younger sister, Alli, who has been instrumental in my change to a vegan diet. We went to Cruzer Pizza, which boasts that they are the only 100% Vegan Pizzeria in Los Angeles.

They were offering 30% off pizzas for the occasion. It’s a tiny place, really only fitting for pick up of your telephone order, but what they lack in space, they make up for in menu. There was so much to choose from, we really had a difficult time deciding. We ended up getting four pizzas and some delicious Cheese Bread Sticks (seen below).

First, the Gourmet Pesto Pizza (pesto sauce, spinach, artichoke, garlic, and Daiya vegan cheese) was really tasty, I liked the thicker crust that we ordered on it as well.

The Vegetable Pizza that we ordered was my favorite. You can choose up to 6 toppings; we got extra artichoke, olive, onion, green peppers, and garlic. I found that the Daiya cheese was very creamy and more like a delicious cheese sauce than grated and melted cheese.

We also ordered the Hawaiian Pizza (Vegan ham, pineapple, and extra Daiya vegan cheese) and the Meat Pizza (Vegan sausage, pepperoni, and ham). I didn’t try either of those, but my husband, Eric, really enjoyed the Hawaiian. He is not generally a fan of vegan substitutes, but described the vegan meat and vegan cheese as having pretty accurate flavors, without being as strong as the real thing.

Ordering out should really be a relatively rare occasion rather than a weekly occurrence, and places like Cruzer give you more of a gourmet experience for a totally reasonable price. I will be ordering Cruzer pizza again, especially knowing that Eric enjoyed it as well!
