But First, Pizza

The Toronto vegan scene has grown rapidly in the past couple of years, and there’s no sign of it stopping. With more vegan eateries opening up shop in every corner of the city, their non-vegan counterparts are now embracing the plant-powered way, making it easier for everyone to make informed choices about their food.

When I went vegan, I was very disappointed in the vegan pizza delivery options (or lack thereof) in Toronto. Let’s be real, who actually wants just sauce and vegetables on a crust? NOT ME! I want all that vegan cheezy goodness. I know, I’m a food blogger and I could totally make my own pizza. But sometimes all I want to do is sit on my couch on a Friday night, binge-watch Stranger Things, and miraculously have a pizza appear before my eyes.

Vegan Deluxe Pepperoni Pizza – Italian tomato sauce, meat-free pepperoni, black olives, green peppers, red onions, and Daiya cheeze on a regular hand-tossed crust.

When I heard that Panago is now offering vegan pizzas, cheezy goodness included, I nearly jumped for joy. With 8 locations across Toronto (and over 180 across Canada), you can get your pizza fix at lunch, after work, or even straight to your doorstep. I repeat: Straight. To. Your. Doorstep. The days of sad cheese-less pizza are long gone. You no longer have to refuse pizza at a party because you can order your very own!

A classic favourite among many is the Vegan Meat Free Pepperoni Pizza – pepperoni, mushrooms, and green peppers. Before you yell at me because pepperoni isn’t vegan…think again. A meatless pepperoni pizza topped with sautéed mushrooms and green peppers actually exists. The best part is, you can get it on whatever crust you want with six different sauces to choose from. Feeling like thin multigrain crust and BBQ sauce as your base instead? Panago has your back. Any of their regular pizzas can be “veganized” with a simple substitution of Daiya cheese and meatless pepperoni.

For all my health-conscious friends out there, don’t worry, you haven’t been forgotten. Add a salad onto your order with a Simple Italian vegan dressing and you have yourself a more rounded meal!

  1. Ugh panago is lifeeeee! So grateful for their vegan options and delicious vegan gf crust. My go to is: a gf crust with vegan cheese, red and green peppers, black olives and extra pineapple! I’m a big mushroom fan but had to avoid mushroom as a topping at panago… until now! Vegans rejoice for the mushrooms being vegan. @blondeveganhippie
