The best day when you're a kid? Pizza day! The best day when you're an adult? Pizza day! Here are 20 spots to get vegan pizza in Los Angeles.
At Purgatory Pizza you can order one of their eight vegan specialty pizzas, including Buffalo Bill, Vegan & Sara, Field of Dreams, and more, or create your own. They also have vegan salads and sides including potato salad, quinoa salad, Vegan Garlic Knots, and Vegan Meatballs. All of their dressings are vegan too, so make sure you get a side of ranch to dip your pizza in. Bonus, Purgatory offers free delivery within 3.5 miles of the restaurant.
Masa of Echo Park
While not exclusively vegan, Masa of Echo Park has a vegan menu with items including vegan soup, salad, garlic bread and pizza. For those Chicago style fans, the Vegan Chicago Deep Dish is a must try. You can either build your own or choose from Masa’s specialty pizza list.
Straightforward pizzeria with vegan cheese available for any pie.
One of the few items at “Whole Paycheck” that isn’t ridiculously overpriced? Their pizza. Slices are $3.50 each or 2 for $5, or you can order a large pizza starting at 12 bucks. The great thing about Whole Foods is you can order by the slice, and they usually have a vegan pizza already made (typically roasted veggie, but sometimes the workers get fancy and make something like BBQ “chicken”). So, this works out well if you’re a single person looking for a quick bite. Toppings vary by store, and if you want to get creative, grab something from the grocery aisle for them to throw on top.
After a hike at Griffith Park, to Cruzer Pizza to replenish the calories. Cruzer Pizza is a 100% vegan pizza shop in East Hollywood. We tried their BBQ chicken pizza with ranch dipping sauce, and we highly recommend it! The thing we love about Cruzer Pizza is the variety and uniqueness of their pizzas. Sure, you can get a regular vegan cheese pizza, but if you’re feeling more adventurous why not try their Jamaican or Ratatouille pizza? They also offer gluten-free options.
Brentwood and West Hollywood
Pizzana does Neapolitan-style thin-crust pizza so well you’ll feel like you’re in Italy! While not an entirely vegan establishment, they offer a Vegan Margherita and Vegan Funghi pizza (which are both delicious).
Julie Goes Green
Julie Goes Green is an all-vegan Italian restaurant serving 10+ specialty pizzas, including the Feisty Buffalo, Hawaiin Delight, and our current favorite, which also happens to be named Julie’s Favorite (coincidence?). Order their Fettuccine Alfredo or Shrimp Scampi and you’ve got a complete Italian meal. Buon appetito!
This hellish pizza joint will make you feel like you’re in heaven when you bite into their vegan pizza. Located on Melrose, next to Tatsu Ramen, Lucifer’s turns up the heat with their vegan pizza game. The thing that sets their pizza apart is you get to choose your spice level, zero to blazing. Loud music, black walls, and hot hot heat, Lucifer’s is vegan punk’s dream come true. Gluten-free options are also available.
This WeHo posh hot spot offers a plant-based pizza that is absolutely delicious. When you're feeling like treating yourself to a nice dinner, order this fancy pie—featuring vegan sausage, mushroom, and almond aioli—and a glass of wine. Cheers!
Another pizza chain with vegan options, Blaze cooks up personal sized pizzas super fast. The cool thing is you pay a fixed price of $8.65/pizza and can get as many toppings as you’d like. Toppings include vegan-friendly cheese, popcorn chicken, and spicy chorizo, along with a host of veggies and seasonings such as artichokes, black olives, fresh basil, green peppers, kalamata olives, pineapple, roasted garlic, sautéed onions, zucchini, oregano, banana peppers, cherry tomatoes, jalapeños, mushrooms, red onions, roasted red peppers, spinach, arugula, olive oil, BBQ sauce drizzle, and sea salt. Gluten-free dough is also available.

Love Amaro Pizzeria

Braazo Pizza is an OG pizza shop in the heart of downtown with a straightforward menu that includes vegan Follow Your Heart cheese, for all of your vegan cheesy desires.
Fresh Brothers is a Los Angeles staple. And lucky for all of us, they have vegan options. Keep it simple and try their Daiya cheese pizza or opt for their Beyond Meat Italian sausage pizza. For a side, they have a Farmer’s Market salad, which includes lots of tasty vegetables. It’s not your ordinary pizza takeout’s piece of iceberg lettuce with croutons and ranch dressing. Gluten-free options are available as well.
Create your own vegan pizza at 800 Degrees. Start with marinara sauce and vegan cheese, then add toppings such as roasted garlic, caramelized onions, peppadews, pine nuts, butternut squash, pineapple, Kalamata olives, and more.
Mohawk Bend has a variety of vegan pies, which range from classic, extravagant, and spicy as hell (no pun intended, Lucifer’s Pizza). For those who love spicy, try out their Angry Vegan—a thin crust pizza with tomato sauce, almond ricotta, vegan mozzarella, fresh serrano chilies, Calabrian chilies, house-made cashew parmesan, chili oil, and oregano.
Swamiji Pizza has a one-of-a-kind dough, made from house-fermented whole wheat sourdough, which aside from having an obvious health appeal may just be culinary genius. Not only is the flour treated in such a way that most celiacs can enjoy it, but its balance of airy texture, charred boldness, and tangy overtones will keep any pizza lover coming back for bite after bite.
D'Amore's Famous Pizza
With a name like D’amores and flour imported straight from Italy, this local pizza chain delivers on those nostalgic Sicilian flavors.
As an establishment of Highland Park and close neighbor of Donut Friend, one would assume TOWN Pizza is home to some killer vegan options … and one would be correct! They have an entire section—short, but savory nevertheless—dedicated to plant pies. Homemade sauce, Follow Your Heart cheese, and thin New York style crust make TOWN Pizza a must for your pizza bucket-list … What? You can’t possibly tell us we’re the only ones with a never-ending vegan pizza itinerary?
