making pizza at home is really nice. but sometimes, it's just as nice to be able to go out for pizza. when you are vegan, that is not always possible, but recently, it's becoming more and more doable all across the country. restaurants, delivery places, and chains are now offering not just the "veggies, no cheese" option that we know and love so well, but all kinds of pizzas made with vegan cheeses such as Teese, Daiya, Cheezly, etc.

here in Syracuse, we have a few vegan pizza options (including The Italian Chef, Dorian's, and Papa John's). one place with a huge and varied menu of vegan pizzas is Strong Hearts Cafe. check out the menu!

Here is the Mediterranean, with Teeze mozarella, kalamata olives, artichoke hearts, spinach, garlic, and a zesty tomato sauce. For a lover of thick, bready crusts such as myself, this is pizza heaven. With so many options, you're sure to find the pizza of your dreams- just make sure it's Friday, the only night that Strong Hearts currently does pizza!

Wow, those pizzas look amazing! I'm jealous too. I can get a great cheese-less pizza no problem but I can't find a vegan cheese one anywhere nearby.

Yum, I have never had teese but it looks so good on that pizza. What's your favorite vegan cheese?

I've only been to Strong Hearts once but loved it..and unfortunately did not get the pizza! We have a new vegan pizzeria that just opened last week in Boston..can't wait to try it. I didn't know that Papa John's had a vegan pizza..good to know!

I've also noticed that there are more vegan pizza options in my travels. I love having the option of ordering vegan cheese. I'll definitely check out Strong Hearts if I'm ever in the Syracuse area.
