Guilt-Free, Cruelty-Free: Best Vegan Pizzas in Metro Manila
by: The Beat Asia
Vegan pizzas, although called such, are not just reserved for those already living a plant-based lifestyle. Devoid of meat and other animal byproducts like dairy and eggs, vegan pizzas make for great comfort food for people who may be intolerant of lactose, and those looking to lessen their meat consumption or just simply want a healthier option.
These vegan pizzas in Metro Manila are not just mouthwatering and indulgent, but also guilt-free in principle. Don't knock them until you've tried them.
This pizzeria's pies are all the things we love: sourdough, vegan, and baked in a brick oven! From these qualities alone, we know Pizza Plant's not fooling around when it comes to offering the best vegan pies in the metro. It currently has three branches, namely in Katipunan, Quezon City; San Juan City; and Bonifacio Global City.
Pizza Plant primarily uses Plant Creamery vegan cheese for its pizzas, soy protein for its Italian sausage and chorizo toppings, and cashew milk for its bechamel sauce. While you will find classics here such as Margherita, Pizza Bianca, and Four Cheese, there are also flavors like Wild Mushroom Pizza with Onion Marmalade and Sisig Pizza.
Another pizzeria whose vegan pies you shouldn't miss is Crosta. Its first location was at The Social on Ebro Street in Poblacion, Makati, but it has now moved to Salcedo Village, with three more forthcoming branches in Molito Lifestyle Center, Ayala Alabang; San Juan; and Ikea at the Mall of Asia.
True to its tagline "pizza for all," Crosta serves both sourdough-style meat-based and vegan pizzas to its patrons. Its vegan pizzas make use of cashew-based mozzarella, Beyond Meat sausage and patties, and Omnipork sausage, among others. For first timers, we recommend the Vegan Shroomed Out – a pie made of cashew-based mozzarella, shiitake, portobello, and button mushrooms, and garlic confit – and the Vegan Meatless Lover topped with Beyond Meat.
Scorched Pizzas is a home-based vegan pizzeria operating from Parañaque City. Off the bat, we were taken by the gorgeous leoparding on Scorched's pies, as well as its ingenious flavors such as the Vegan Shawarma Pizza. Did we mention it also offers plant-based lasagna?
Scorched Pizzas is open from Tuesday to Sunday and accepts pre-orders every day. Simply send the pizzeria a private message on Facebook or Instagram for orders.
