Vegan Pizza Day Approacheth!

Now, I use any excuse to eat pizza, so this works for me.  Saturday, Jan. 29th is Vegan Pizza Day!

I've been mentioning a bunch of resources on how to consume pizza, vegan style, in some of my other posts, so I will recount those for you and hook you guys up with great VPD resources!

More info on Vegan Pizza Day:

Vance Lehmkuhl's article (Philadelphia Daily News):

Blackbird Pizza (6th and Lombard):

Another Philly shout-out (older PW article): Grindcore House (and Blackbird) opened up right after I moved out of Pennsport! Bah! It's okay, I still plan to make it over to both establishments soon.  I'm still within 10 miles!
Great podcast by Vance Lehmkuhl: #93 is about Grindcore house, Blackbird and the PW article!

Now for more info on pizza itself:
Tony's pizza in Haddonfield is my favorite delivery pizza.  They are located at 419 Haddon Ave, and their number is 856-795-4200,  This one is a tomato pie with eggplant, roasted peppers and sliced tomatoes on an amazing whole wheat crust!

I also use my Cashew Ricotta on top of tomato pie, which I love to get with spinach:

I personally prefer tomato pie with veggies and tofu or cashew ricotta to those with vegan cheese (though Daiya is the best one produced so far, in my opinion, and it is what they use at Blackbird).

Most pizza places will do a tomato pie with any veggie toppings you like, and many have whole wheat (my now go-to favorite) or gluten free crusts for those of you who don't tolerate gluten.

My other favorite South Jersey pizza joint is Vito's in Cherry Hill. 
Vito's is located at 561 Browning Lane Cherry Hill, NJ 08003.  Their number is (856) 429-9244.  They also make a killer tomato pie.  You have to pick up from there, but it is worth the trip.

Need another reason to eat vegan pizza?? More problems with factory farmed dairy products (milk, cheese, etc.). Juiced up cows.  [Thanks to Erik Marcus of for posting his reaction to this article].

Kay, guys, time for me to go play in the snow.  Enjoy!
