Whether you’re already vegan, trying to cut back on meat and dairy, considering going vegan or have a plant-based loving friend, good vegan pizza can be hard to find.
So, to save you the effort, we’ve scoured the streets to find the best vegan pizza Perth has to offer, dairy-free cheese and all.
Upon first look, you might not think Tavolo in Belmont is a vegan-friendly venue, but just ask the friendly waiters and they’ll be happy to bring you your very own plant-based menu. Their pizzas and calzones are delicious. They might even be the best vegan pizzas in Perth. Our top pick? The Tartufata with vegan cheese, mushroom, truffle cream and parsley.
Rossonero will happily make just about any of their pizzas vegan, just ask. In our opinion, you can’t beat the Brussel Crowe (sans the meat and dairy of course). But if you’re after something simpler, the Bomba with garlic, olive oil, rosemary, sea salt and vegan cheese will satisfy.
Northbridge, Victoria Park and Fremantle
Operating out of Perth’s three Loving Hut locations, Peace’za is a completely vegan pizza place with a plant-based version of your regular meaty toppings. They even do a stuffed Notzarella cheese crust and an apple crumble dessert pizza.
Mack Daddy’s New York Slice
Mack Daddy’s has added two vegan pizzas into the mix, and yes, they’re available in larger than life sizes. There’s The Heritage, which features a delightful hummus base and is topped with balsamic onions, veggies, dukkah and rocket, and the NO Meat Just Balls, which comes with bean and quinoa balls, roasted capsicum, artichoke and onion.
Palace Arcade is always a good time, and for vegans too, thanks to their tasty dairy and meat-free pizzas. The Pennsylvania Garlic & Mushroom has stolen our hearts, but if you’re a fiery sort the South of the Border Mexican with tequila and lime marinated mushrooms, black beans, corn, tomato and jalapeño will get your engines revving.
Pearth Organic Kitchen
It’s not your conventional pizza, but Pearth Organic Kitchen’s cauliflower base vegan pizzas that are available by the slice make for the perfect lunchtime snack. Gluten free to boot, these beauties are covered in delights like potato cheeze, local tomatoes, pesto and fresh chilli.
General Public Food Co
General Public Food Co is the kind of place you would consider moving suburbs for. They will happily veganise any pizza, and they even have a few vegan wines to choose from. It might sound left of field, but go for the pea and mint pizza (sans mozzarella and ricotta) on their delicious sourdough base. And don’t forget to grab your pooch a pupsicle.
Marco’s Organic Pizza
Marco’s Organic Pizza is a favourite of many Perth people, and they’ve got a winning vegan pizza on the menu so you don’t have to feel bad and ask your mates to forgo their favourite slice on your behalf. Dubbed the Vegan Premium Gourmet, it’s loaded with salsa, roast potato, pumpkin, capsicum, spinach, onion, sundried tomatoes, Kalamata olives, pineapple, pine nuts and vegan cheese.
With a pizza chef hailing from Rome, traditional certified D.O.P dough that’s rested for 48 hours and a Marana Forni pizza oven, you know you’re getting the good stuff at Locale Mio. They’ve got a lot of vego options on the menu, and most can be veganised if you ask nicely.
The kind of pizza that’s perfect for movie nights on the couch, south of the river vegans breathed a collective sigh of relief when Jo-Joe’s added vegan cheese to the menu. Go the vegetarian or get creative and make your own.
Northbridge Brewing Co
When your mate next suggests a Sunday sesh at a brewery, tell them you’re going to Northbridge Brewing Co. Their Margherita and White pizzas can be veganised and you can score one for just $5 with any drink purchase.
If you’re craving Italian-style wood fired pizza, get your butt to Amore Mio. This spot does vegan cheese and has an extremely extensive menu that even vegans will have a hard time choosing from.
Chew No Moo
Available from IGAs, The Good Grocer and La Vida Vegan Grocery, Chew No Moo pizzas are perfect for when you can’t be bothered picking up dinner. Stockpile a few in your freezer and the next time you get the munchies you will thank yourself. The Animal Lovers and Smokey Jackfruit are winners.
