i could spend all day at crate, london’s craft beer brewery and pizzeria in hackney wick. not only is the pizza delicious, but it’s vegan-friendly when ordered without cheese (the menu even has the v word on it!) and the staff are happy to throw on some extra toppings in place of the dairy. while not all of the beer at crate is suitable for vegans, they are experimenting with animal-free finings and i was able to get a lovely vegan stout on cask. go support this place and their vegan beer when you’re in london. and order the sage truffle pizza with shredded potatoes, it’s mind-blowing.

hey guys! thursday is world vegan day, and we’re teaming up with two boots pizza to celebrate! between 6-8pm both LA two boots locations will be giving out FREE slices of the new quarry girl vegan pizza (designed by me!) which comes piled high with san marzano tomatoes, shiitake mushrooms, artichoke, fresh garlic, and a swirl of basil pesto. after thursday, the pizza will be available for one week…so make sure you get a chance to eat it.
in addition to free pizza, the echo park location will have free live music by LA’s own moses campbell. they’re an awesome band, and if you missed them at the el rey a couple weeks ago, this is your chance to make up for it. (huge thanks to clara from clara’s cakes for suggesting them).
really hope to see you all at two boots on thursday! come try my new pizza, dance in the street, and celebrate veganism in general. here are the official event deets:
Two Boots & Quarrygirl World Vegan Day Celebration: FREE PIZZA and Live Music!
heads up! starting today, two boots pizza in echo park will be selling vegan cookies for just 75¢!! if the cookies are popular, they’ll be stocked on the regular. go buy some along with a giant pizza, arguably the best in LA, and have a happy weekend!
i have a new favorite pizza place in los angeles and it’s called pizzanista. not only is their vegan pie unreal, but they regularly stock vegan slices! for toppings they’ve got good stuff like daiya cheese, and three different fake meats made by my favorite seitan company, upton’s naturals. CHECK IT. and hit up the little bear down the road for some beers beforehand. perfect night.
brunch insanity at mohawk bend in echo park with my girls. starting to the left and going up clockwise, you’re looking at: hearts of palm “crab cakes” with hollandaise sauce, bottomless sangria, a pizza bagel with vegan cheese and seitan sausage, a “banh mi pizza” (marinated tofu, pickled carrots & daikon, jalapenos, herb salad, sriracha aioli), an asparagus potato pizza with leek puree and nutritional yeast, and a ballast point yellowtail beer. yes, this place rules.
HOLY MOTHER OF GOD. pizzanista in downtown LA is offering an extra special pizza on saturday for vegan pizza day, and it needs to be worshipped! it’s a vegan version of their popular “meat jesus” pizza, so naturally this one is called the “seitan meats jesus”. it comes with daiya cheese and 3 different kinds of upton’s seitan: italian sausage, pepperoni, and bacon. AMEN TO THAT. go eat it.
PS: upton’s seitan products really are the best, and i don’t know of any other restaurant that uses them in LA. just another reason to go nom on this pizza, as if you needed one!
