The rumours are true…Virtuous Pie, an all vegan (and to die for, I may add) pizzeria and ice cream shoppe has opened up in Vancouver, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Why, you may ask? What’s so special about a vegan pizza shoppe? This menu has seriously outdone itself. The pizzas taste like your favourite classic pizzas (think buffalo & blue cheese pizza, pesto pizza, sausage pizza, mushroom pizza, etc. and then times that by 10), plus – it’s all plant-based, meaning 100% dairy free cheeses. How is this possible, you may also be thinking…!? All of their “cheese” is made in-house using all natural, real ingredients such as coconuts and cashews, but it actually tastes like cheese. No joke. I’m serious. Just try it for yourself.
Oh, I also almost forgot to mention the best part. After you’ve devoured 1 (or 2, or 3) pizzas to yourself, you are feeling fiiine from all the goodness in your body, but you are craving something sweet afterwards. Get this – they also make all of their own ice cream in house from more delicious plant-based ingredients, such as cashews and coconut. I’m literally drooling all over my keyboard as I type this up. Best vegan ice cream I’ve had, hands down.
What I recommend:
Pizza – Ultra Violet, Stranger Wings, Super Fungi (but really, they’re all amazing)
Ice Cream: Turmeric & Black Pepper, Pumpkin Pecan Ice Cream (but again, all amazing)
Why you should go: Haven’t I given you enough reasons already? You can find Virtuous Pie on 583 Main St, in Vancouver.
