Not too keen on meat? Not a problem! Because we've scoped out the best vegetarian pizza in Auckland.
So go chuck your stretchy pants on and munch your way down this list!
New York-style Epolito's Pizza uses only locally imported ingredients on their hand stretched pizza bases, made with their own dough and topped with their own sauce. They’ve got so many delicious vegetarian options—our favs include all the cheesy goodness of the Tre Formaggi with pizza cheese, ricotta and parmesan and the East Side pizza with artichoke, lemon and parmesan.
This traditional Roman pizzeria specialises on pizza by the slice. Il Buco partially cooks the pizza, then it’s put on display for you to choose your slice. You can either choose to finish cooking your pizza in their oven or take home to finish yourself. There’s more than 30 different toppings to choose from. Our picks are the Primavera with caramelised onion, asparagus, feta and brie and the Spinaci e Funghi with mozzarella, spinach, parmesan and olives.
Ponsonby | Takapuna
Dante’s pizza is like having a slice of Italy right in our own back yard! Everything about Dantes Pizza is as authentically Neapolitan as you can get. They use Caputo flour from Napoli to make their pizza bases, tomatoes from San Marzano and their mozzarella is from Campana. To top all that deliciousness off, their pizzas are baked in an authentic pizza oven hand made in Napoli.
Pizzeria rosso Pomodoro
Pizzeria rosso Pomodoro is all about Italian pizza with a twist of Kiwi! Local and Italian ingredients are the go-to for these pizza makers. Wrap your mouth around the Verdure pizza with its delicious toppings of aubergine, basil, courgette and potato or, for the vegans, the Boscaiola pizza with a mouth-watering mix of mushroom.
Let the flavours of the Mediterranean tickle your taste buds with one of Stumpy’s delicious hand-stretched, thin base pizzas! Their Margherita pizza is primo for vegetarians. And, they’ve even got a food truck for catering your next special event.
Non Solo Pizza
Non Solo Pizza is perfect for your next date, social event or even for dining solo. Their menu is delizioso! They don’t just specialise in pizza but have an array of tantalising Italian food. But, if pizza is what you came for, we recommend the Pugliese pizza with tomato, feta, mozzarella, chilli, capers, anchovy, red onion, black olives, oregano, garlic and parsley. Not a fan of anchovies? Not a problem, just order without and you’ve got a deluxe vegetarian pizza ready to be demolished!
Our final epic pick is Prego. Situated on Ponsonby Road, it is an Italian restaurant serving up a delectable menu. The Funghi pizza is A-MAZE-ING with its toppings of Portobello mushroom, Swiss brown and button mushrooms and gorgonzola. Our tummies are rumbling!
