Here are all the SuperVegan blog posts categorized under Pizza. XML

  1. Vegetarian establishments suffer from the same punny name curse as hair salons, tailors, and Pho spots– Green Peas is no exception. In fact, it’s right down the street from a place called Pho Show. I generously overlook the moniker, it’s worth it. Take one step inside and you’ll see why: it’s LA’s version of my Barrel (this is an obscure reference to the finest TeeVee show to ever get cancelled, Wonderfalls, where Jaye, the main character, could always be found at her local food-serving establishment, The Barrel. It’s like a Jean-Pierre Jeunet film meets Daria as written by the same guy that made Pushing Daisies.), Atlas Cafe! It doesn’t have Vegan Treats or a giant shoe on the wall, but it does have a strikingly similar aesthetic, lots of great vegan grub, a display of vegan cakes, wifi and ample seating!

    I’ve been to G.P.’s a bunch of times and enjoyed everything I’ve tried thus far, minus the tuna melt. But I never liked real fish, so I only have myself to blame on that one. The Vegan Curry salad is great, the Breakfast Burrito just hits the spot, and the pizza was good, too. On my most recent trip, I had the Rolling Steak Sandwich.

    This thing has Gardein steak, grilled onions, cilantro, spinach, avocado, mozzarella Daiya cheese and Veganaise. The bread options are many (and clearly labeled for Veganity), but when the guy behind the counter says to get it on a baguette, you get it on a baguette. I got mine with a side of potatoes (over the salad or soup options) and it was awesome. The sandwich was warm and gooey and enough to feed two of me, or me twice. I could only conquer half. The baguette was perfect; fresh and crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and the combination of Daiya and Veganaise made for a stretchy, creamy dream. The potatoes were really on point this visit; hot, fresh and with tons of rosemary and other herbs and spices.

    Fine Print: Like Atlas, this place has real meat and faux, so it’s perfect for a diverse group of diners. Order at the counter and food is brought to the table of your choosing. The staff is super friendly and helpful. There’s a self-serve water station where you can choose between an infusion of fresh oranges or fresh lemons (cause LA water is nasto on its own).

    I couldn’t bring myself to get one of their treats though. Maybe next time, after it’s been longer since my last NYC trip and I’m in severe treat withdrawal.

  2. I love the future and the future is now! The Great Vegan Cheese War of the 21st Century rages on! Teese vegan cheese is now available at Whole Foods in California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii! AND, if you give the fine people over at Chicago Soydairy your email address over here you can get a coupon for $1 off!

    Is it in the tube or will it be a bag of shreds? Does it re-seal? Does it cost less then the $6.29 bag of Daiya? There’s also a handy list of participating stores. Now we have options, people! Which do you prefer? I’m gonna do a pizza test!

  3. This weekend’s going to rock your veggie world, if you’re into that sorta thing! Veggie Prom is tonight, followed by a post-prom potluck picnic at Central Park. Finally, the Veggie Pride Parade rounds out the weekend Sunday starting at 11 a.m. in the Meatpacking district.

    Hungry after all the parading, yes? Z Pizza‘s got vegan slices this weekend, starting today! That means no more staring in their window wishing you had friends to go in on a pie with you, and no aging pizza in your fridge. (But leftover pizza is the best, no joke!)

    Jonathan Horowitz’s art exhibit at a former meat locker in the Village called “Go Vegan!” looks brilliant. Have you been? What’d ya think?

    At least two carriage horses have crashed in the last two weeks, Gothamist reports. It’s been just a month since the City Council approved changes to the carriage horse industry that support more humane treatment of the horses, but the new legislation does nothing to protect horses from injury due to crashes. Hey, it looks like you can’t make carriage-hauling safe or humane for horses unless you eliminate it entirely. News. Flash.

    The LA Times blog’s “L.A. Unleashed” column has a snappy animal round-up of its own: Labradoodle breeder’s regrets, gray whale in Israel, and researchers hurt mice to see the looks on their faces. Guh.

    The Humane Society of the United States gives us a peek into Richard Berman’s absurdly shady lobbying tactics and how they threaten animals. You wanna read this!

    Remember when Compassion Over Killing encouraged us to enter Dunkin’ Donuts’s “Create Dunkin’s Next Donut Contest,” and asked us to share our vegan creations with them? They’ve picked their favorite 12 contestants’ dreamed-up sweets and will make one of those dreams come true! Vote for your favorite by next Friday, May 21 (and you’ll be entered to win one of 10 prizes, too). Vegan Treats will produce the winning doughnut, which will be announced in June. I will take a box of each!

  4. Daiya-serving pizza chain Z Pizza opened in the West Village this week. Gluten-free crust available! Huzzah! Fill out a two-minute survey (really, I tested it out for ya) to get a $5 coupon delivered to your inbox.

    Even better: the largest foie gras farm in the U.S., Hudson Valley Foie Gras, will pay $50,000 for violating the federal clean water act after a judge ruled against them in a lawsuit brought by the Humane Society of the United States.

    Pepperidge Farm is way behind the times, still using eggs from caged hens. Join East Bay Animal Advocates in telling Pepperidge Farm’s parent, Campbell Soup Company, that cage-free is the way to go by e-mailing Douglas Conant at douglas_r_conant@campbellsoup.com or calling him at (856) 342-4800, ext. 3752.

    Haven’t seen Fowl Play yet? MFA has organized a screening at the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center for Thursday, May 13 at 6:30 p.m. The movie will be followed by a Q&A with MFA campaign coordinator Matt Rice, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary founder Jenny Brown, chicken keeper and blogger Martha Lazar, and Elizabeth Ayer, BK Farmyard’s farm director and consultant and caretaker at Wyckoff Community Garden and Farmers Market. Tickets are $12, or $8 for students and seniors.

    VegNews won the best lifestyle mag category for the third consecutive year at the Maggie Awards this week! Yaaaay VegNews!

    A mere round-up mention of Mia MacDonald’s HuffPo article about the relationships between Goldman Sachs and agribusiness and your tax dollars, “Investment Bankers with Wings: Making a Killing”, doesn’t do the story justice, so go read. You will be horrified.

    And finally: Holy cannoli! Mike Tyson is vegan!

    Saluggi’s pizzeria in Tribeca has Daiya vegan cheese in the house as of Thursday, April 29, at the suggestion of Mercy For Animals. MFA is contacting pizzerias in Manhattan and Brooklyn to ask them to add Daiya to their menus, says NYC Campaign Coordinator Matt Rice. (Hand me my handkerchief! Vegan pizza brings TEARS TO MY EYES.) Saluggi’s is the first restaurant MFA’s contacted that has agreed to test-run Daiya. I said test run, which means get your ass over there and eat ALL THEIR PIZZA so they keep Daiya in stock. And hey, maybe they’ll add more vegan options, like vegan pepperoni or sausage HINT HINT, SALUGGI’S, ARE YOU LISTENING?

    Huge thanks to MFA for spreading vegan pizza! Do like MFA and bring vegan food to traditional restaurants by encouraging them to stock up on your favorites!
