Does vegan pizza exist? Is there a place in Portland that serves it? Is it just bread and sauce and a vegetable, or what?

We couldn’t tell you exactly how many questions we’ve fielded about plant-based pizza, but it’s somewhere between several and a million. And while it’s wonderful that Portland houses so many veg*ns, dairy-free folk, and curious omnivores, all this pizza talk was cutting into time that could be better spent, say, cutting into another hot slice of deep-dish. Thus, the Definitive Guide to Portland’s Vegan Pizza. 

For the record: yes, vegan pizza is very real. Yes, it’s available in Portland—at more than 30 locations, in fact. As for the topping combos, they vary widely, from Associated's "Sit Down, I Think I Love You" (creamy cauliflower base, buffalo sauce, celery) to Hammy’s zesty Greek Vegan and Hotlips' couscous-seasoned Falawesome Ball Pie. There’s even cheese: while omnivores generally stick with mozzarella, vegans choose from housemade delights like herb tofu ricotta, cashew mozzarella, and lemon chevre.

Rather than declare a winner, this list uses a handy rubric to help each herbivore find their perfect pie. Looking for a quick slice? Delivery? Gluten-free crust? It’s all inside. Don’t know where to start? Rudy’s, Virtuous Pie, and Sizzle Pie have the widest selection of vegan offerings, and it’s hard to go wrong with classics like Dove Vivi and Pyro. So, what are you waiting for? It's pizza party time! 

(Note: every ingredient mentioned is vegan, so don’t be tricked by words like “cheese” and “sausage.”)
