Attack of the vegan food hybrids! Pizza waffles, meatloaf cupcakes, and more! »
Guys, I was looking on Finding Vegan for some food porn to share and I couldn’t decide which of these hybrids sounds cooler! So I thought I’d share them all. Let’s make it a smackdown! Which one is most exciting?
First up: Meatloaf Cupcakes from That Was Vegan? These might be my top pick in terms of what I wish was in my mouth right now.
In this corner, we have Pizza Waffles from Killer Bunnies Inc! Savory waffles are always intriguing, no?
Here we have Philly Cheesesteak Empanadas from Vegan Pandamonium! Not so crazy like a sweet thing gone savory but a cheesesteak pocket sounds perfect to me.
And finally, Lasagna Wontons from Veggies Don’t Bite! Another cultural mashup that sounds super yummy.
So you can see why I had trouble deciding, right? Which do you think is the raddest?! Tell us in the comments!
Vegan Florida in the house!: Ozona Pizza has an extensive vegan menu! »
We got a tip about this pizza place Ozona in Florida and it sounds too exciting not to post! I’ve never been, but should I find myself in Florida, I know I will be here. Vegan ranch dressing forever!
From tipster Amanda S:
Ozona pizza in Florida has so many vegan pizza options using daiya cheeses, beyond meat chicken, beyond meat beef crumbles, organic tempeh, and homemade vegan ranch dressing, and awesome vegan garlic knots and gluten-free vegan options.
I want to get on that train! Here’s a snippet from their vegan menu:
Have any of you guys been here? Share!

Hold the phone! I’ve never seen anything like this before but I’m highly intrigued. Looks mushy but in the best way. It’s black-eyed peas and tofu ricotta deep dish pizza from Vegan Richa! With thyme. Thyme is the jam, right? I never used it that much until some recipe called for it a few years ago, now I love it. My mama grows it in her back yard—seems like a hearty plant!
In conclusion: get in my mouth, wacky pizza!
DiGiorno cheese comes from tortured cows »
The latest investigation from Mercy for Animals exposes horrific cruelty at a major DiGiorno cheese supplier in Wisconsin. You can watch the video on SliceOfCruelty.com. I watched parts, it’s brutal. I’m not sure lately if I should post these videos on here or not. I want the truth about the horrific conditions in the meat, dairy and egg industries to get as much attention as possible, but then some people criticize me for posting that stuff. Because, truthfully, if you’re vegan, you don’t have to watch this stuff. BUT many of us know cheese eaters who should watch this, so I want to make sure all the vegans at least know about it. What do you think? Should I post these videos? Just share them on FB? Or do a post like this that just links to the vid?
I wish everyone who ate dairy were forced to watch this, Clockwork Orange style! Not really but kind of. But again, if you want to see or find the video to share, go to SliceOfCruelty.com. And if you want to sign the petition, go directly here.
Vegan chocolate pizza? Say whaaaaaa? The world has lost its mind! What are your thoughts? The blog, Divine Healthy Food, says it’s healthy too. So then I can have it for brekkie, right?

Quarrygirl presents Masa of Echo Park! »
i’m so excited about today’s video with masa of echo park! as you probably know, i’m a huge pizza fan, and masa makes my all time favorite vegan version—an authentic chicago deep dish with teese soy cheese. we caught up with owner rob rowe and learned what makes the deep dish special, why it takes so long to bake, and which menu items everyone can enjoy at masa. check it:
Every week QG puts a video up, we’re going to bring it to you, until she’s convinced us that LA rules the vegan scene and we all move there together, like a family.
San Jose now has a Veggie Grill and an all vegan pizza joint! »
The South Bay is popping off, my friends! Let’s all move to San Jose! JKJKJKJK. But on the real, let’s visit.
First up, THE WORLD FAMOUS VEGGIE GRILL! Opened in San Jose a couple weeks ago, it’s the tasty bomb. Veggie Grill is a hit down in the Los Angeles area and recently made a move to Portland, too. This is our SF Bay Area first outpost of this relatively healthy and extremely delicious mini-chain! It’s on Santana Row which means nothing to me, but there you have it. I CANNOT WAIT TO EAT THERE. Until then, let’s stare at a picture of a Chicken Caesar Wrap from my last visit down South:
And there’s also a FULLY VEGAN PIZZA JOINT in San Jose! Plant Based Pizza looks to be the most delicious, and I want to eat everything on their menu. Calzones, stromboli, hamburgers, hot dogs, a million kinds of pizza! It sounds like paradise!
It’s in the Willow Glen area of San Jose, which, again, means nothing to me, but might mean everything to you. People on Yelp are all about the Hawaiian and Indian pizzas, and while this pic from their site looks like they’re not using Daiya, the Yelp photos tell a different story. Maybe they’re still ironing out who they’re going to be?! Either way, let’s check this shit out and support a vegan pizza joint, OK!?
ROAD TRIP YALL.
Gobi Aloo Broccoli Pizza from Vegan Richa! Aloo Gobi is only my most favorite thing in the world and as I’m a human being, of course I like pizza. Basically, I want this so hard!
Eating vegan at chain restaurants: BJ’s Brewhouse has vegan options! Vegan pizza options! »
I love hanging out with my family and getting away from the city for a few days. The only bummer can be going out to eat with everyone, as I usually end up getting a side of vegetables and a salad with half the ingredients taken out (cheese). I’ve made my peace with the Cheesecake Factory, but that is not the place to go every time I’m visiting. I mean, you gotta wait at least, AT LEAST, a half-hour to get a table, and it’s kinda fancy. What about casual? I just want to eat lunch with my mom somewhere, where we’ll both enjoy our food. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?
No it is not! BJ’s Brewhouse just opened up near my parents’ house and guess what? They have a few vegan options! Not only vegan, but some gluten-free options too! Plus tons of beer, including a gluten-free one (shudder), and delicious cocktails (I’m thinking of you, margarita). When my mom mentioned BJ’s for lunch, I figured I’d be eating a salad, yandet took to the internet to see what the vegan word was. You know what? QUARRYGIRL LOVES BJ’S BREWHOUSE.
Now, I do too! When Quarrygirl said BJ’s pizza was one of her all-time faves, I was excited, but skeptical. Silly me. That Quarrygirl knows her pizza! It is pretty epic stuff.
I got their Portobello Mushroom pizza, with caramelized onions, balsamic vinegar, oven-roasted mushrooms, and fresh herbs. I just left off the cheese, obviously! They let me get my pizza on a gluten-free crust instead of deep dish, too. I’m one of those people who tells themselves gluten-free is healthier for me, because I love lying to myself! The gluten-free crust was spectacular, by far the best I’ve ever had. It was light and flaky, with herbs baked into it. As for the toppings—taste party! They were the perfect balance of sweet and savory! I saved half my pizza, just so I could enjoy it when my mom and I got back home too. I told her I want to go to BJ’s every time I come visit!
Oh, Portobello mushroom pizza, I wish I could eat you again today (accompanied by another refreshing Piranha pale ale).
