Miami's Vegan Pizza Options Are Limited
The second best news I heard this week is that eco-pizza chain Pizza Fusion is going to be opening a new location in Miami Beach. In my Biscayne-biased opinion it should have been downtown but hey, close enough. As it is I currently pop up to its North Miami (Biscayne and 148th) location at least once a month to order a veggie'd up vegan pie. Their XL size is a giant oval large enough to feed you, a couple friends, and still have leftovers. Oh Pizza Fusion, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways: Multi-grain crusts, totally decent soy cheese, roasted garlic and other yummy veggie toppings, serving delicious sugar-sweetened Boylan's sodas over HFCS-y Coca-Cola, eco-pride... Why can't the other pizza places be more like you?
Some get close, ordering the Portobello or Eggplant at Andiamo or any other pizza joint with dank toppings, sans formaggio, still makes for a tasty and satisfying dinner.

To fill that oh-so-gaping hole, may I humbly suggest the new Tofurky line of vegan pizzas made with the award-winning Daiya vegan cheese? They look incredible but I've yet to find them available locally, and am adverse to paying the rush shipping and cold-packing to have one arrive still likely lukewarm at my South Floridian doorstep. They have a plain cheese, the "first ever vegan pepperoni pizza to hit the freezer case," and a sausage pie with roasted veggies. I'm absolutely Daiyin' to try one.
