Veganize Your Delivery Pizza!
We all love a good vegan pizza—I mean, we are human beings, after all. But what about those late nights when you’re just trying to get your pizza delivery on? Or times when all your not-yet-vegan friends want to order from the average pizza joint in town, and you don’t want to be the annoying vegan who won’t eat any? WHAT DO WE DO THEN?!? Have no fear! We’ve got happy news for you: Most pizza delivery chains are totally vegan-friendly! Follow our tips, and you’ll find yourself grubbin’ on vegan pizza pretty much anywhere.
- Since the most common pizza chains don’t carry vegan cheese (yet!), I suggest you make peace with cheeseless pizza! It’s actually really good—sometimes, I even make my own pizza at home without any vegan cheese. Also, once you get into it, you’ll find that you have a lot more opportunities to eat pizza, which is ALWAYS a good thing.
- Order extra sauce! Usually you can get it for free in place of the cheese.
- Treat yo bad self and go crazy with veggie toppings! Up the flavor meter with zesty garlic and banana peppers, or make a yummy sweet ‘n’ savory pizza by throwing some pineapple on with your veggies.
WHAT TO ORDER
- The sauce and original hand-tossed dough are vegan, so go ahead and order your veggie pizza as usual—but without cheese!
- Do your thing with Papa John’s wide variety of veggie toppings.
- BONUS: Order the garlic dipping sauce (totally vegan!) or get BBQ sauce on your pizza!
- Order the thin crust (others aren’t vegan) and regular sauce.
- Order all the veggie toppings that your heart desires.
- BONUS: Kick up the yum factor and get some dipping cups on the side! The garlic sauce, BBQ sauce, hot buffalo sauce, and Italian dipping cups are all vegan. Woo!
- Order the regular crust and regular sauce—both are vegan!
- Go to town on the veggie toppings.
- BONUS: You can special-order the Crazy Bread without Parmesan cheese, along with some Crazy Sauce on the side. HALLELUJAH!
- Order regular or sweet pizza sauce and either the Thin ‘N Crispy or Hand-Tossed crust (some others aren’t vegan).
- Go crazy with the veggie toppings!
- BONUS: The dessert crust is also vegan! DIY dessert pizza, anyone?
OK, so you’ve had a bomb-ass vegan pizza delivered to your front door, and that baby is gonna be delicious as is! But if you want to take it from a standard delivery pizza to a gourmet feast, here are a few quick tips:
- Have some vegan cheese at home? Preheat your oven while you wait for the pizza to arrive, and once it does, sprinkle it with vegan cheese and slide it in the oven. In a few minutes, you’ll have a super-fancy (and super-cheesy) vegan pizza!
- To get your cheeze fix with no baking required, sprinkle on some nutritional yeast or vegan Parmesan.
- Ask for extra red pepper packets, y’all—you’ll need ‘em.
See, being vegan is TOO freaking easy sometimes. Now go change into your PJs and order yourself a PIZZA!
