Vegan pizza is one of those things where I’d probably only ever eat it as a gourmet style pizza in a vegan establishment, or at home, because I can be pretty much assured that either of those options would be really tasty and full of flavour. In my experience, the vegan (well, vegetarian-minus-cheese) pizzas at regular pizza joints are bland and blergh.
A vegan friend recently recommended Eat Fresh Pizza in Maribyrnong. Now, when a regular suburban kind of pizza joint is advertising vegan pizza in addition to regular omni pizzas, that’s one place I want to check out. And so we checked it out for dinner tonight. After ordering my ‘vegetarian pizza minus cheese’ without looking at the menu, I browsed the menu and saw they have options for vegan ham and salami, which like the vegan cheese, incur an extra charge. Doh! I could have ordered something more omnivore style, with the vegan hams instead. Live and learn! I had just assumed the only vegan option would be whatever comes on a vegetarian pizza.
Still, my pizza was quite nice and definitely not bland. I bought enough so I could have leftovers as tomorrow is a busy day and I’d like something I can quickly heat up for lunch. Okay, breakfast:
There were a few tables inside and a window bench. Naturally, I forgot to take a photo of the outside. It’s a white shop front with a car parking lot next to it (that’s where we parked).
