The Best Vegan Pizza in New York

New York City is known for many things—the Statue of Liberty, the Museum of Modern Art, and Central Park, but when it comes to food, one dish comes out on top. Pizza may have originated in Italy, but it’s definitely taken on a life of its own in New York City. While you can’t go wrong with a classic 99¢ slice, it’s not exactly an option for people following a plant-based diet.

Vegan cheese has come a long way over the past few years and paired with some tomato sauce on top of a good crust, you’ve got everything you need for a perfect pizza. Here are our favorite vegan spots in New York.

Double Zero

Celebrity chef Matthew Kenney has restaurants around the world, but his wood-fire pizza kitchen in New York City is one of our favorites. Double Zero offers classics like Margherita served with cashew mozzarella cheese and even a spicy arrabbiata made with shiitake bacon.

Artistic Pizza

Your classic by-the-slice NY pizza joint, but with options for everyone. Artistic serves fan favorites like cheese, pepperoni, and white pizza in both classic and vegan versions. They also have gluten-free crusts available made with cauliflower. 


Coletta is a small, kosher, and vegan Italian restaurant (who even knew this combination existed?) offering plant-based takes on classic dishes. Their Margherita pizza is great, but the pepperoni is our favorite.
