Ahead of National Pizza Day on February 9 and the Super Bowl on February 11 (the biggest day for pizza sales last year), we’ve rounded up a list of the top vegan pizzas for 2024. No run-of-the-mill pies here—they’re all friendly to cows, pigs, and chickens and packed with flavor that will satisfy your cravings for the perfect ’za.
Here are PETA’s picks for the top vegan pizzas of 2024:
The Luchador Vegan Beef Pizza from You Wanna Pizza Me?
Kansas City, Missouri
This pizza’s taco-inspired flavors make for an exciting twist, with taco sauce, seasoned vegan beef, melty nondairy cheese, crisp red onion, salsa verde, and a vegan sour cream drizzle on a perfectly charred crust.
The Vegan Non Meat Lovers from Slice of Vegas Pizza Kitchen & Bar
Las Vegas, Nevada
It’s the meatiest! This outfit’s Non Meat Lovers pizza is pield high with people’s favorite vegan meats, including plant-based sausage, meatballs, pepperoni, spicy sausage, and ground beef. Seeing is believing, but tasting is the ticket!
The Balboa from 20th Street Pizza
All the pizzas at this vegan establishment are hits, but there’s something extra special about the Balboa, which features crushed vegan meatball, cherry tomatoes, pistachio pesto, and cashew cheese, topped with a bright bite of arugula, chili flakes, and extra virgin olive oil.
The Thai Chik’n Pizza from Pi Vegan Pizzeria
Pi Vegan Pizzeria holds the title for the oldest vegan pizzeria in the U.S., and while it serves the classics, you can also get fun fusion flavors like the Thai Chik’n Pizza. It comes with a cow-and calf-friendly nondairy white garlic sauce, topped with spinach, vegan mozzarella, mushrooms, pineapple, seasoned vegan chicken, and a house-made Thai peanut sauce. Since we’re fond of chickens, we love that choosing this pizza causes them no harm.
The Pickle Back from The Hop Craft Pizza & Beer
What goes better with a cold beer than a piping hot slice of pizza pie? The vegan version at The Hop Craft Pizza & Beer is creative and fun, as bar food is at its best. The Pickle Back comes with “Udderless cheese,” a cashew-based blend created by restaurant owner Evan Byrne, house red sauce, dill pickles, soy chorizo, and a hot pepper relish swirl on a hand-tossed sesame seed crust. Wow!
The Mackin’ Out Pizza from Veganized
New Brunswick, New Jersey
Carbs on carbs are always a hit, and everyone who has had the Mackin’ Out Pizza at Veganized loves it. The handmade crust is topped with mac and cheese that’s made with a sweet potato truffle cashew cream, smoked shiitake mushrooms, roasted broccoli, and red pepper flakes.
The BBQ Seitan Pizza from Spak Brothers
For those who like the fragrance and taste of cilantro, Spak Brothers’ BBQ Seitan Pizza is topped with this great addition. Beneath it, you’ll find meaty seitan, red onions, and a tangy BBQ sauce. When ordering, be sure to specify that you want it made with vegan cheese to keep it cow-friendly—and add some vegan ranch on the side while you’re at it.
The Bangkok Pizza from Red House Pizza
San Diego, California
Red House Pizza has a huge vegan menu, including more than 30 varieties of vegan pies. It was hard to choose just one, as they’re all so tasty, but we’re highlighting the Bangkok pizza for its unique, delicious flavors. It features a creamy coconut peanut sauce base topped with vegan mozzarella, broccoli, pineapple, julienned carrots, pickled onions, jalapeños, fresh scallions, cilantro, and sesame seeds with your choice of vegan chicken or sesame tofu.
The Vegan Meat Lovers from Pizza Head

Savor tastes you grew up with and spare cows and pigs by choosing this Vegan Meat Lovers pie, which comes with nondairy cashew cheese and soy-based pepperoni, sausage, and bacon. Pro tip: Order some vegan ranch on the side for dipping!
The Vegan Brotherly Love from Bizza
San Francisco, California
Bizza’s cheesesteak-inspired pizza from Vegan Brotherly Love is a garlic delight, brimming with cashew cheese, drizzled with garlic, and featuring vegan steak, mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions. It’s one of seven vegan signature pies at Bizza, which are also available by the slice, if you care to treat your tastebuds to more than one.
If you don’t live near any of these spots, don’t fret! More than 50 pizza chains in the U.S. offer vegan options, including Blaze Pizza, Papa Murphy’s, and Fresh Brothers. Plenty of delicious vegan pizzas are also available in the frozen aisle of your local grocery store.
