Vegan pizza has come a long way! Thanks to the availability
of meltable nondairy cheeses and tasty faux-meat products, more and more
pizzerias across the nation are expanding their menus to include mouthwatering vegan pizzas.

Hundreds voted, and dozens of PETA staff members drooled
over the impressive list of vegan-pizza finalists. It was a tough job, but
we’re proud to announce the winner and two runners-up of our best vegan pizza

The winner and runners-up will receive framed certificates
to place in their restaurants, plus unlimited bragging rights for their delectable
vegan pizzas. Bravo!

Vegan Pizza Winner:

3 Brothers Pizza Café  in Rockville
Centre, New York, has an entire vegan menu, which boasts Italian-American
favorites like “mozzarella” sticks, fried “calamari,” and
Caesar salads to accompany its award-winning pizza, the Seitan Bacon Ranch. Topped
with grilled seitan, tempeh bacon, tomatoes, and Daiya mozzarella drizzled with
vegan ranch, it’s no wonder this pizza was named the very best!

o’ Pie
