The Making of a Great Vegan Pizza

Southern California’s Best Vegan Pizza Restaurant

Vegan pizza isn’t just healthier than traditional pizza, but it also tastes better too (when properly prepared!)

The trick to doing a proper vegan pizza is simple – all you have to do is pick all the right ingredients, learn to combine them at the perfect, palate-pleasing ratios, then get the bake just right so that the crust is picture perfect—just   like you’d expect from any other pizza.

Seems simple, right? But so many others get it all wrong!

Here at Fresh Brothers, we’ve been doing vegan pizza right for years, having learned our lesson through a trial by fire that began way back in 2008 when we opened.

We’ve learned to keep it real by crafting vegan pies using a sauce packed with all fresh tomatoes, exceptional Daiya vegan mozzarella cheese, NO artificial ingredients, preservatives or fillers, EVER, and our proprietary 100% vegan crust.

There’s a reason why our vegan pizza is widely regarded as the best in the Southland, which is a pretty tall order considering all the great pizza located throughout Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego, but anyone who’s eaten with the Bros knows that we’re not afraid to deliver the goods!

Why Try Vegan Pizza?

As anyone who’s already had one of our vegan pies could surely attest, there are a number of great reasons as to why you should love the Bros-baked vegan pizza:

  1. It’s healthier
  2. It’s more nutritious
  3. It tastes great too!

On the health front, vegan pizza is virtually guaranteed to be far less greasy, far less likely to clog-arteries, far less likely to lead to weight gain, and far less likely to be loaded with processed, saturated fat-or cholesterol-laden toppings.

I think we’ve all heard the science on plant-based diets, but if you’re still on the fence, one trip down the Fresh Bros vegan pizza lane should be all it takes to convince you otherwise!

Secondly, vegan pizza is truly packed with powerful nutrition-promoting ingredients, thanks to its most typical toppings, like fresh veggies, herbs and plant-based proteins (see our Vegan Sausage and Impossible Meat options!), but also due to the Bros preference of only utilizing real, locally sourced, completely fresh ingredients.

And finally,  we’re sure your palate will be pleased because our version tastes exceptional.

All jokes aside, there’s a good reason we’re our pies are regularly used to introduce non-vegans to the lifestyle; we’ve probably converted more meat eaters than any report, article or study ever could!

How Fresh Brothers Makes Our Famous Vegan Pizza

You can rest assured that our Vegan Pizza is 100% Vegan, not mostly Vegan, partly Vegan, or slightly Vegan, as you may be used to finding elsewhere.

Without question, every single element and ingredient that goes into one of our vegan pies is 100% Vegan, and lives up to the Fresh Bros standards we place on all of our pizzas, ensuring they’re the freshest, healthiest and best-tasting pies possible.

Using only the highest-quality and best-tasting ingredients for our vegan pizzas ensures that they always end up tasting picture-perfect, increases the chances that they’ll help convert non-vegan eaters into vegan pizza advocates, and keeps us cemented as LA and OC’s favorite vegan pizza provider—a  title that we’re quite proud to retain!

Maybe you’ve tried making your own vegan pizza at home before, using grocery store or even self-made vegan crusts, and perhaps it even went well, but trust us when we say that you have never experienced a vegan pizza quite like ours!

From our great crispy, crunchy crust to our fantastic Daiya cheese and our vast array of vegan toppings, there’s just no way that you’ll end up left unsatisfied.

Our Incredible Vegan Cheese

Pretty much everyone agrees that when it comes to vegan cheese, Daiya does it better than the rest, which is why we use only their 100% vegan mozzarella on all vegan pizza made by the Bros.

Daiya’s dairy-free mozzarella melts, oozes, bubbles and stretches just like “real” mozzarella cheese, making for an exceptional vegan pizza experience, and one that is sure to satisfy even the most discerning palates.

If you’re looking to convert a non-vegan to the lifestyle, then ordering a vegan pizza from the Bros may just be your best bet.

Our Most Popular Vegan Toppings

But what should you pile on top of that amazing crust and cheese to make for the perfect vegan pizza experience?

How about a boat-load of fresh, flavorful veggies like we serve on the Fresh Veggie Pizza, loaded edge to edge with delicious green peppers, red onions, mushrooms, green and black olives?

What about our incredibly tasty vegan sausage, which is sure be a hit even amongst the meat-eating crowd in your group?

Or you could give it a go with our latest and greatest vegan option, the Impossible Meat Pizza, packed to the brim with protein, but made entirely from plants!

However you choose to doctor up your vegan pie, we’re sure the entire crew will be pleasantly surprised by our truly one-of-a-kind flavors.

Our Vegan “Impossible Pizza”

We already mentioned it earlier, but allow us to toot our own horn for just a moment in celebrating the fact that Fresh Brothers was the first pizza restaurant in Southern California to bring “Impossible Meat” to the masses!

Nobody got in the game earlier than us, and though some have tried, no one’s been able to top our exceptional Impossible Meat Vegan Pizza recipe either.

If your entire goal is to get a vegan pizza that tastes as much like a traditional meat pie as possible, then our Impossible Meat Pizza should top your list of options.

Is Vegan Pizza the Same as Gluten-Free Pizza?

Before we proceed, let’s quickly clear up one point of confusion; in case you’re not aware, we also offer Gluten-Free Pizzas, which are entirely different from our vegan pizza options.

While vegan pizzas mean pizza that wasn’t prepared with any animal products, gluten-free pizzas mean exactly what they sound like – pizzas that don’t contain any gluten, at all.

Just like our vegan pizzas don’t contain ANY animal products, our gluten-free pizzas are entirely, 100%, no-questions-asked free of gluten.

But please don’t be embarrassed if you weren’t aware of the difference between vegan and gluten-free pizzas, because we’re not here to judge or to convert, the Bros just aim to please!

If you still have any questions about ingredients, options, or differences between our vegan and gluten-free offerings, don’t be afraid to ask any of our helpful staff.
