The Best Vegan Pizza in Toronto


Where can I find vegan pizza in Toronto? I love pizza and when I started to cut dairy products from my diet pizza was one of the hardest things to say goodbye to. But now with all of the vegan pizza options available, I don’t even miss the traditional style anymore! And I think as time goes on there will be better and better cheese substitutes coming out which will make things even better. Beyond Cheese??

I’m not a huge fan of the Daiya Cheese, which most chain restaurants use, but if it is used in the right quantity then it works amazing. I will share my favourite vegan pizza down below but first, let’s get to our list of the Best Vegan Pizza Toronto.

**April 2022 Update** I am in the process of updating this post for 2022 and will be eating a lot of pizza in the coming months. I will be posting each place I visit on my Instagram Page if you want to follow along there. If not check back here regularly for the updates.

All Vegan Pizza Places

Apiecalypse Now

**Sadly they have closed 🙁
735 Bloor St W (Near Christie)
www.apiecalypsenow.com

A staple for vegans for many years you can’t go wrong with this place if you’re looking for a good vegan pizza. Unlike Virtuous Pie, this isn’t a full restaurant. There is some seating but it is a much smaller location so it would be better for grab and go or delivery IMP. But they are entirely plant-based and have tons of goodies to choose from including pizza, of course, sides, salads, and drinks. You have to, HAVE TO, try their poutine. With 12 different pizzas to choose from Apiecalypse Now has the widest variety we have seen! 

*They also offer GF (for smalls only).

Planta Yorkville

1221 Bay St (Near Bloor)
https://www.plantarestaurants.com/location/planta-toronto/

When Planta opened its doors it said that they wanted to fill a void in the market of upscale, full service, plant-based dining options with environmental sustainability in mind and they have definitely delivered. And their pizzas are…..bomb! They have 4 to choose from but normally have monthly exclusives that can include an extra pie. Sadly they don’t deliver but with an upscale place like this, it’s to be expected. 

*GF option available.

Vegan Pizza Toronto – Non vegan places

We can wish all restaurants will go vegan one day but for now it is still great to see that more and more places are providing vegan options. And they aren’t just a token tribute, these places make seriously delicious plant based pizzas!

Order: Skip The Dishes

Not a vegan restaurant but they have the vegan options clearly labeled on the menu, which is great (3 to choose from). This place is great because they have an open kitchen with a huge pizza oven right in the middle so you can watch as your pie is made. They make Neapolitan pizza which I learned has very little gluten in it.

You wouldn’t know it by looking at their menu but they offer a build-your-own pizza and you can have vegan cheese instead of regular. I get the black olives and mushrooms and it is amazing!

This is not a vegan resto but they have over 20 plant-based menu items….including pizza of course, for which they have 9 to choose from. They also offer multigrain crust or GF for the mini size. What’s also nice about Il Fornello’s is that they list the ingredients of their vegan dishes and spreads. Plus they offer 8 different kinds of vegan cheese! Some include Ricotta, Cheddar, and Feta, yum. All of this makes this place a serious contender for the best vegan pizza in Toronto.

Blondie’s Pizza

1555 Dundas St. E (near Leslie)
199 Bay St (near King)
88 Ossington Ave (near Argyle)
Various hours and ordering apps
https://blondiespizza.ca

There aren’t any preset vegan pizzas at Blondie’s but they do have vegetarian options and you can substitute for cashew cheese for $5 extra. Now, this is pricey but worth it because Blondie’s has some of the best crust out there.

The others…

Now I, personally, would choose any of the options above over the ones I will list below but sometimes there is no other choice so it is good to know which places have your vegan back.

Pizza Pizza – Dairy-free cheese at no extra cost

Pizza Nova – Dairy-free cheese at no extra cost

Mama’s Pizza – 6 vegan pizzas to choose from

Pizza Iolo – 3 vegan pizzas to choose from

Panago – 5 vegan pizzas to choose from

My Favourite Plant-Based Pizza Restaurant

Okay, so this is tough…..really tough. Of course, taste in pizza is very subjective but if I had to choose a winner…..if I really had to…..I would choose Blondies Pizza. It really pains me that I have to choose a non-vegan restaurant for this but I just have to because Blondies Makes the best vegan pizza. The crust is perfect and the cheese is just so damn good. I still haven’t figured out what kind they use yet but I suspect that they make their own. One area of that Blondies Pizza could improve on, in my opinion, are the toppings. Where is the vegan meat option?!

  1. Hi there! I was wondering your thoughts on the Mama’s Pizza vegan options? I know it’s a chain, but personally I think their pizza is far better then most chains. I’m looking for a gluten free, dairy free option and wondering if you’ve tried it? 🙂

    • Unfortunately I haven’t tried Mama’s Pizza yet just because I’m addicted to North of Brooklyn and Blondies 🙂

      The only ones I’ve tried from “The Others” list are Pizza Nova (which now has Field Roast sausage!) and Panago. They were both decent but not close to the main ones from the list.

      Have you tried Mama’s since your comment? If so how was it??

  2. Mamas is delicious, and the only vegan pizza I order these days! The spicy vegan with olives is my favourite, but I swap out the black olives with kalamata, add pineapple, hot pepper, fresh garlic, oregano, and their homemade tomato sauce. The last four toppings are free. I find their pepper jack vegan cheese is better than their mozzarella.
